We order the local one pot fish dish for 2 people. They said it would be an hour but we did not mind as it was a lovely setting with a great sunset and glass of wine. The food was great and the service very...friendly. One of the best meals we had during our 3 week trip around Madeira.More

Loved our grilled tuna and sea bass! Simple and delicious, big portions, kept going back to! The restaurant offers outdoor seating and service is attentive! Great option directly on the beach.

This beach restaurant serves local food at affordable prices. Friendly staff and off course nice view. Desserts are industrial made (ice cream stuff) a bit disapointing.

The staff are friendly and accommodating, and food is nice and affordable. But the quality of the food could be a bit elevated a little bit, what frustrate me with places like this around Madeira is that the amazing fresh produce isn’t always best represented...and looked after. Simple is always best! this place has the best spot for dinner with a sunset!More

We came here for lunch which was superb so booked for dinner. I reserved a table and said we wanted to watch the sun go down, the girl did not want our name or time but clarified twice with us that it was for two...people, but when we arrived our table was not reserved and the girl denied our booking! I was cross but being mindful of the language barrier re booked for 7pm We came back and table reserved we ordered our meal BBQ fish and chicken on a spit! The fish was not boned but it was tasty my husbands chicken was ok! The wine was brilliant €8 for a litre carafe ...... what ruined the evening was asking to use the toilet and we were directed to the public toilets which were dreadful, not even a seat yuk!!! We did not mind but if you aren’t animal lovers you are bothered by the local strays!!More

I went with my loved one for lunch. We all agreed that, it was our best meal on the island. Great food, calamari, BQ fish, and the mussels were great.

After its rebuilt in 2018 and reopening we visited a couple of times. Our clear recommendation is the fresh fish! Always excellent! Just add some veggies and or salad, a glass of wine and the perfect view to the sun set (for dinner:-)) What else...do you need? Also great, the octopus! Though it comes with a lot of oil and onions it is a speciality and really tasty. We had it three times during this vacation, yummi. But remember, it's not light ;-)More
