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

The restaurant looks at the Sabal Palm resaca, very modern building, and good taste decoration. The food is thought for taste and beauty. A great place for a special celebration. The cost is a little high but the service and food deserves it!

You will not believe your eyes when you arrive. It is set on a Resaca in a housing project but the restaurant is elegant with the best service and food in the area. If you are looking for an elegant dining experience, this is the place to go.
