Went here for our wedding anniversary. They have meat and fish, but we are vegetarians. Had delicious mushroom ceviche, a beautiful, filling, and tasty salad, and then creme brûlée for dessert. Great wait staff. Nice atmosphere.

Madeira is one of Brownsville's treasures. It's the only restaurant of it's kind in that city. It's romantic, elegant, beautiful, and relaxing. Wine list is extensive. It's menu offers few items but they are all delicious. I've tried the shrimp with chipotle sauce and they were huge shrimp. I also ordered chateaubriand since I hadn't seen it in a menu... More

You might not expect to find a restaurant like Madeira in Brownsville, TX. I know I did not. However if you stop there, this is a must go place!! The setting is very nice, by a resaca in case you want to sit outside. I chose to sit inside. They are nice art in the walls, and the tables are... More

I had dinner with some business colleagues at the Madeira and had an extremely good experience. The atmosphere was a little upscale without being stuffy- very comfortable. The staff was attentive and helpful. The food was outstanding. The menu has something for everyone's tastes with a selection of seafood as well as some very nice looking steak/chop options. Halibut ceviche... More

Brownsville might not be a place you visit often and only for business. Because of its demographic there are not a lot of upscale restaurants. Madeira is one of them and the food is great with view on a little lake. The atmosphere is relaxed and decorated a little modern. Their staff is friendly and helpful. The food is great... More

I was amazed at how delicious the food was from the appetizer to the main. The chef knows what she/he is doing. I had the veal and it was cooked and seasoned perfectly. I highly recommend this location

Excellent food,service and atmosphere. The mojitos are the best I ever had. The wine list is adequate. Only the desserts are not to par with everything else, very limited choices.

This is the second time I give this restaurant a chance because everyone always says it's so good. I think the menu is way too limited and the prices are very high for their small portions. The food is just ok. Not great, not awesome I want to go there again. As a matter of fact doubt we will ever... More

We recently visited Madeira Restaurant for a special birthday party with out of town guests. We had a large table and spent several hundreds of dollars. One of the guests brought in an expensive cake and was told by the hostess that we cannot eat the cake at their restaurant. We asked to talk to the manager, but he and... More
