Four of us went for dinner, on the recommendation of our Airbnb hostess. We booked. We were really pleased with the choice, a really good menu, lots of seafood but other good choices too. Recommended.

Decent meal overall but nothing get too special. Staff really friendly and pleasant speaking excellent English. Polenta and prawns really good but spoiled by too much polenta and too few prawns. I had the parrot fish and capers- a few bones and swimming in just too much really flavoursome thin sauce . Evening tarnished by lack of atmosphere with only... More

We're staying across from the Atlantic and had our first meal of the week here. So far we haven't had anything that compares. Our kids order squid everywhere we go and they had the best! Tuna steak was cooked rare just like I asked. The scabbard fish with banana was fresh and flavorful. Lamb rack, spinach, mashed potatoes, mackerel..all fantastic!... More

I chose this restaurant because it had a few vegetarian options but I was so disappointed. I ordered tomato and egg soup and was given pumpkin . The risotto was salty and unimpressive. I understand from other reviewers that the fish dishes are very good so my advice would be just avoid the vegetarian option. The location is good and... More

This restaurant is a little tucked away on the Estrada Monumental. Look out for the awning and sign on the main road and walk down the steep path to the restaurant. It is lovely to sit outside with a view of the sea and listen to the waves crashing on the rocks. If you prefer to sit inside the restaurant... More

We dined one evening at Atlantic and could easily have come back again and again. Both food and service were excellent, but what really capped the experience was the location. A great place to create a lasting memory or your trip to Madeira... The acid test (that is, would I return): yes, absolutely.
