My wife and I visited la Bamba one evening, the portions were large, the prices were right, but the size of the wine glasses are huge much to my wife's delight as not only are they large but they fill them to the top.

We had steak on the stone in this restaurant but for us was not best quality. Most people seemed to have pasta or pizza. The staff were very nice and friendly

After our last night's bad experience it was nice to have our faith in Madeiran Restaurants restored! From arrival to leaving we were treated by the usual Madeiran friendliness and every effort made to ensure we enjoyed our visit. The food was excellent, well prepared and presented, we will certainly be visiting La Bamba again before we leave!

Lunched here today, lovely three courses for 12 euros, fresh and delicious. Well served, generous portions. Waiter switched coffee for water and beer without quibble or charging extra.

We stumbled upon this restaurant after walking out of one just down the road. The lunchtime special was unbelievable value and very tasty. The lady was very helpful in accommodating my husbands likes and dislikes. We intend to return one evening for dinner.😀

The staff were friendly, for example, offering a more expensive wine at a lower price when the cheap one we asked for wasn't available. The seafood pasta was excellent. We ate there 3 times during our 2 week say.

Food here is good and is good value for your money. The service was also good. Nothing special but no complaints. Basic home cooking in a clean no frills environment. Live entertainment is often provided by a singer or guitarist.

Following recommendations for our walking guide we ate here. Very pleased with the quality of the food and the attentive service. Went back for a second meal which was equally good. Atmosphere very welcoming, prices very reasonable, even sold my favourite wine in half bottles.
