Once you visit Madeira you have to try the Espada. This long black fish that has the softest meat . It is so delicious and in Polo Norte they know exactly how to make it.

We had one octopus dish and one squid dish. The squid was frozen but very tasty with a good sauce, better than expected. The octopus was fresh, tender like butter, just amazing.
