Nice fish and meat meals, a shame that both meals had potatoes that were a little hard, which spoilt our experience slightly, as everything else was very good. Lovely location, great views, and friendly staff

Great start getting complimentary pick up and drop off by the owners, nice touch along with complimentary appetisers. The food was fabulous along with the service. Well worth the money. It is a bed and breakfast too, will definately visit next time on the island. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening and would highly recommend a visit.

We had two dinners here during our weeks stay in Porto Santo. Our second dinner outdid our first! My wife had mussels and "osso bucco" and I had vegetable soup and espada with a caper sauce. As a dessert we shared a flambé banana. This whole meal was so worth it!!! Bit more expensive than other local restaurants but the... More

We had breakfast and dinner every day during our five-night stay. It was all superb. Service was smiling and efficient. An excellent variety of choices on the menu. The quality of dishes is wonderful. And plentiful. The wine list is excellent, including lovely house wines.

We got picked up and dropped off at our hotel by the very friendly owners. When we arrived we got served a delicious complementary appetizer. Our main course was the lamb stew and mixed meat platter paired with the house red wine and sparkling water - all can be highly recommended. We finished our dinner with an espresso and an... More

I went there with my husband for dinner. Dinning out is not cheap in Porto Santo, nonetheless if you choose wisely it is totally worth your money. We went to Casa do Velho Dragoeiro and, oh boy, it was really worth it. We ate a wonderful fish stew( cataplana de peixe) for both of us - it was really fresh... More

Visited last year and had a great experience, so wanted to return. Sat outside in the no smoking area, which is unusual in Madeira, where everyone and his dog appears to smoke which makes it unpleasant to sit and eat outside. It was great to enjoy an outside table for a change. We enjoyed the espada (scabbard) fish and tournedos,... More

Dead simple, go to your hotel reception ask them to book you a table here, get picked up, get dropped off later. Eat great food.
