Great find

Fantastic evening meal here. Staff very friendly and their knowledge of English is good. Quite a wide choice on the menu and not too expensive. The food was delicious and I'd certainly recommend this place.

We eat here at least twice every time we visit the island. This time was as good as ever. There have been some improvements to the restaurant and the décor is clean and pleasing with great views. There is a good menu and on Sundays you get a great Sunday roast. We had lamb with mint sauce and carbonara spaghetti... More

We could never have found this restaurant by ourselves. Fortunately we were taken by friends. Located high above Machico there are spectacular views. (If booking by phone request a window seat. Or maybe they have tables outside in the summer.) We were there for the Sunday lunch - roast pork, lamb etc. Sides were plentiful - red cabbage, fries, mixed... More

What a charming place situated high up above Machio. M celebrated his birthday here with a super meal. I had limpets for starter - a first followed by wonderful grilled fish and curd pudding. Lili understood that I need gluten free which was great. M had pate, tornados with mushroom sauce, followed by a wonderful home made panacotta. Delicious and... More

The room, the view, and the greeting was really nice, but we witnessed too many mistakes: 1. The wine list contained no half bottles and no glass proposals, 2. The wine recommended by the restaurant was sold out 3. The recommended starters were quite small and the advocado/shrimp without taste 4. We ordered some bread to go with our starters... More

We were visiting Machico from Cabo Girao and read the review by "ourjetboat", so we drove up to Lily's. Thank you! Parking is easy, turn right beside the restaurant and right again into the car park behind/below.

Good atmosphere, great food, nice and good staff! Superb! We had shrimps with avocado gratinated as a starter. Good combination. Not expected. Slightly more salt and pepper is adviced but the taste was great! Main course was the daily fresh fish: whole perfectly grilled parrot fish. Fillets were also possible but we like the fish as it comes. Vegetables nice.... More
