“Not impressed”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Have now been twice and would not go again. After the first time we thought we'd give it another chance but after the last visit we would not go back. Food left a lot to be desired.

“Good food and good view, not extraordinay”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

This restaurant was nice with a great view. Unfortunately, when we went, there was only 4-5 tables, so the service was a little bit too much. I felt a little looked at, and it was simply a little too fast: order...starter... main... then thank you bye bye! The food is good, eventhough i defenetly don't like the lampas (clams), very strong in taste, but that's just the dish that's like that.
The fish is fresh but nothing really different from the other maderian restaurant.

“Great views and food”
Reviewed May 19, 2012 via mobile

Definitely get a table outside for the ocean view. Take the lapas or clams as starter and whatever fresh fish they have as main. Delicious. They can prepare the fish as a filet if you feel lazy. Great fresh food. 3 cause meal for 2 with half bottle of wine for €69. The tv could be turned off though.

“Authentic Madeiran Food”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

The welcome and service are very warm and professional. Good help with wine selection and the foods is well cooked and plentiful. Have eaten here on each visit to Calheta and is always consistent. Lovely views but could do with a slightly larger vegetarian selection (as could most restaurants in Madeira.
