Rickshaws is incredible! The food and accomodations were wonderful for the week I spent on the island. The team has paid attention to each detail that makes for a relaxing stay.

My wife and I (with 2 kids under the age of 6) stayed at Rickshaws for 8 nights and had breakfast every day and many lunches and dinners. I am a foodie by nature so I had high expectations for the restaurant. But they exceed...every expectation! From taste to execution as well as plating...every dish was excellent! My favorite dishes were: - Lobster Curry (pictured) - Prato Nahara - Fish Tacos I cannot recommend this restaurant enough! If you are ever in the area, you have to go to Rickshaws Cafe!More

We ate here for most of our meals and loved it. The staff even accepted special requests for food for our young boys. The owners are incredibly nice and immensely helpful. They ensured we had a wonderful experience on the island. The staff are friendly...and attentive. Some speak English, which was helpful for us. The food is without complaint. We never disliked anything and we tried nearly everything on the menu over a week. I highly recommend the crepe suzette. The secret is to spread the powdered sugar and then squeeze the lemon. Lastly, the view is amazing.More

We popped in for lunch as we wanted a bit of variety., as other restaurants here are very traditional. They have quite a limited menu - only about 4 starters and 8 mains, however the choices are good. We tried the fish tacos (served with...soft tacos and really fresh salad) and pizza. Pizza was the stand out - nice bases and with a choice of toppings, so you could have what you wanted. We went for the chorizo, olives and mushrooms. There was also a comprehensive drinks list. Location is picturesque, looking over the ocean. And the absolute bonuses for us were the English language menu, friendly waiter and relatively fast service.More

After suffering damage in the 2022 cyclones rickshaws is back! We stayed in October 2022 and the rooms are are beautiful as ever with some subtle changes since the last time we were there. Everything works as it should, the air conditioners are cold, the...beds and pillows are comfy and the decor suits the historical island location. The restaurant was again excellent with the lobster curry, fish tacos, pizzas and prato milano being the highlights. Rickshaws is one of the best places to eat on ilha. While the rooms and restaurant are great, Rickshaws best asset is its staff - great young local people who have been trained well and are just great people to be around.More

We were their first customers for a meal when the Rickshaw opened again this August after storm damage caused a few months ago. Excellent food, best pizzas in the island, tender and tasty meat dishes, and super cocktails!! The staff are friendly and efficient. Totally...recommend it and hope to get back there again.More

The food at Rickshaws Cafe is absolutely delicious. Being there seven days we tried most of what was on the menu and it was all excellent. Their moto is to get it on the table within 20 min of ordering and they did that. The...presentation of the food is beautiful and the taste exquisite. My three favorites were the lobster curry, a must try, the pizza and the three cheese hot pasta dish.More

The menu was amazing. Not only was the taste of each dish delicious, but the food was also cooked to perfection. The lobster bisque was a treat, and the fish tacos had a homemade sauce. Everything was baked and cooked with all homemade sauces and...dips and butters. My favorite dessert was the banana flambe. The service was very good, and the view of the sunset from the patio restaurant topped off the evenings.More

The food was a feast for the eyes as well as for the palate. As we enjoyed the food, the ambiance was calm and serene. We enjoyed the restaurant both for lunch and dinner. The sun setting over the water was beautiful. Friendly, attentive staff...were ready to answer any questions we had about the menu. We appreciated that they had vegetarian options. The bread was homemade, baked fresh that day.More

The food is Amazing! Especially lobster curry, would recommend. Great options, maybe could expand the menu but every item I tried was amazing (Curry, Burger, Fish Tacos, Pizzas). Atmosphere is nice, although some music could have been better for the occasion. The staff was great,...got the orders right everytime and the wait time for the meal was never too long. Love the deserts on offer, some weren't available but that is understandable of course. Overall, really recommend Rickshaws to anyone wanting a good meal, especially the curry!More

We preferred this place over others on Ilha de M., as they do not pretend being upscale or something. Food was good, service as fast as one can expect: rather slow.
