Came here upon recommendation as we were told the food is superb. This is true the food was excellent if a little on the pricy side! We had grilled limpets for starters, fillet steak cooked on the stone, and 1 desert of crepes. Half a bottle of house white and a bottle of sparkling mineral water. No coffees and a... More

We had two snack lunches and our last night meal here and were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service good.When I pointed out that the broccoli had been cooked much too early and was inedible ...... and not a complaint .... I was given a glass of wine! We really liked this place.

This was our first experience of eating in Madeira and we were very happy. Despite its strange location , outside a shopping centre overlooking a car park, it has great views of the sea and you felt quite isolated. I had a Portuguese sausage to start (Chorizo) which was cooked on an open flame at the table - nice theatre... More

Good helpings of some lovely dishes. Excellent steaks which fully entitle them to their name. Vegetables were a bit overcooked and soft. The service was particularly friendly and helpful.

We visited this restaurant three times in September enjoying fillet steak and espada. The fillet steak €14.95, which came with choices of jacket or chips, salad or vegetables. Sensible sized portions and good value for money. The grilled espada fish €13.95, is my partner's favourite though she would prefer more pawns as she loves them. Good wine list typically €17-20...

Steak on a stone is great here because they bring a giant, great quality piece of meat out! We've had this twice: the heat of the stone seemed to last longer when we ordered two portions than when only one of us ordered. When one of us ordered a non-special item (mixed grill), the range and quality of the meat... More

The setting of the restaurant is excellent. A view at the ocean, the food is good with good service. The biggest disappointment are the bright lights in the restaurant. If you look beyond this, you can have a good dinner.
