“best seafood ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

well we went to restaurant after reading reviews on here.
we were stopping in monte mar palace about 10 mins drive away along the beautifull coast .
we booked a return taxi cost 30 euros but was worth it ,as driver left a card and the restaurant called him when finished
service great ,lovely kind people who made you feel at home
well we visited 2 times in the 7days at hotel
now about the food 1st night
garlic bread to die for best ever
then limpets ! think spelt wrong
king prawns starter
octopus main with salad and local maize fried cubes
prawn linguini main ,so many prawns
bottle water ,large beer ,bottle rose wine, cost 49 euro

the seasonings ,and flavours were fantastic ,I wish had this restaurant at home ,I live at Whitstable and it beats any of the seafood/oyster resturants here.!
my brother has took lots of photos of the food ,he will put them on here soon ,they will make your mouth water !

thanks again for 2 wonderfull meals ,and if ever I come back ,we will visit you in a flash!

“Great find in Sao Vicente”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

We looked at the restaurants on the seafront that looked pretty much the same as each other and not particularly appealing. We turned the corner and came upon the Taberna. It looked the part and once we sat down we were greeted by Berto (apologies if spelling is incorrect,) who was so helpful and knowledgable. We ordered the tapas which was a great way to go - prawns and octopus tapas were divine. We certainly recommend both the food and the service.

“Nice place, kind people,unbeatable price/quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

This is an small, cozy little restaurant with Madeiran specialities. The place is just outside Sao Vicente, close to the sea and with a parking space just across the street. Fresh fish and seafood at very reasonable prices. Kind waiters. The place is clean, quiet and the variety of food is astonishing in view of the size of the restaurant. Definitely will recommend it as one of the best madeiran-style restaurants in the island of Madeira.
