Meal at the Madeira Restaurant last night, birthday celebration for me and the wife.
We would go there again as the menu choice was good, the meat and fish were cooked well but we didn't get to a sweet as we were full. The wine was tasty, had a rose. The cost was reasonable at about £25 a head with wine and the service was friendly.
The place was packed when we arrived for our 8 o clock booking and there was a really good atmosphere in there.
The only downside was that due to the number of diners we waited 45 minutes for our starter, had to complain about that.
Overall, it was well worth the visit, there was a great floor-show when the manager was having a go at the chefs in Portuguese but this was all down to the number of customers in the restaurant I think.

We really enjoyed the experience and it was nearly as good as being in Funchal - the staff were friendly and talkative and they clearly enjoyed their work. The sardines I had for a starter were brilliant. The wine and the prices were good too. We'll certainly go back.

Whether as a couple a group of 4 or 6 we have not been disappointed. Don't be disappointed, be sure to book. A warm welcome is always there from the Manager, and all the staff. Good advise on the menu with offers of personal changes if required and good aweness by staff of allergies.
Good wine list with advise on those not heard of before, but never let down.
Good service, good food, good price, good evening.

Second visit, after visiting a few weeks ago. Booked a table over the phone and the staff member was very helpful, in accommodating our needs. Following advice from staff on previous visit, parked across the road. Very welcoming staff and sat upstairs rather than downstairs on last visit. Very comfortable surroundings. Good menu choice. Probably have to re consider starters in the future, because the portions are big. Staff are helpful without being overbearing. Well worth looking at their menu on line prior to a visit. Main meal was excellent, no complaints from the 5 of us. Portions are large and good quality.
No hesitation in reccommending this restaurant, best of it's type in the area.
