“Wow! Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

We chose Madeira in part because of its convenient location and because of the excellent TA reviews. We were not disappointed. Food was delicious. Nice presentation. Friendly staff. Definitely recommend.

“madeira comes to swansea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

We have been going to The Madeira restaurant in Cardiff for many years and have always been very happy with the food and service. We were therefore extremely happy to find out that the the Madeira has come to Swansea. Myself my husband and my daughter went on a Wednesday. The interior is very much like the Cardiff restaurant and very informal and relaxing. Service was excellent. The food is exactly the same as Cardiff, superbly cooked and a large choice of dishes. The wine list is extensive and there is something for all tastes and pockets. We enjoyed our visit so much we are intending another visit this weekend. We only hope we can get a table as I'm sure as soon as this great restaurants reputation gets around this area it will become as busy as its sister in Cardiff. Would recommend this to anyone who likes good food and good wine and doesnt want to break the bank in having a great meal out.

My wife and i had a meal here on a Saturday night, First impressions seemed good and that's where it stopped, My starter and main were bland and tasteless and the exact can be said for my wife's. All fur and no knickers springs to mind. Once but never again

“New Place in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

Once again checking TA for a restaurant in Swansea and saw this one ...so glad I did. The place itself is clean and has a good ambiance to it. The staff were attentive. Food wonderful, quickly served and hot. My partner had the Lulas à Portuguesa..huge bowl full of the tenderest squid in a lovely sauce. I had the Avocado in vinaigrette dressing fabulous. Fillet steak cooked to perfection of medium rare with a pepper sauce and Monkfish in Special Portugese Sauce to follow, served with cubed roast potatoes, cauliflower and garden peas, all very well presented and plenty of it. Coffee for me and Ferraro Rochas mousse for my partner and also a glass of superb port finished the meal. Including drinks(no wine just lager) this was less than £70 and well worth the money. Room for improvement... Not really certainly not on the food side...somewhere to hang our coats would have been nice...but thats just me being picky. Its easy to find on the end ofTthe Kingsway opposite the Red Dragon, parking not too bad in the side streets. Overall a very good meal in a lovely restaurant.
