This remote restaurant sits in a location surrounded by natural beauty and levada walks, including one of the easiest on the island with spectacular views at the end. Some places without nearby competition take advantage, but here the prices are fair and comparable to Funchal....More

Sat down for 10min, weren’t even acknowledged, fetched menus for ourselves to have a look. Waited a further eight minutes to no avail, so got up and left. Very disappointed as we were looking forward to some fresh trout ☹️

This restaurant serves a variety of trout, all delicious. The one we liked most was with crushed almonds, both outside and inside. Also the grilled trout was delicious. In both cases ham was inserted in the trout, to our surprise. We had a great white...More
