It was very pleasant to get away from the noisy crowded food court of this shopping centre into a proper restaurant. We haven't visited Madeira but this served what is considered typical food so it was interesting to start with. Full of local business people having serious conversations over their food! There are curious rods over the tables which I learned - when I ordered chicken on the spit - are to hang the skewer from. The meat keeps warm on the skewer and gradually drops down to a plate below. Cunning. I like a bit of theatre at the table. Complementary appetisers given - two had shellfish which we don't eat, the others were what I'd call 'bureki' flaky pastry with spicy cheese and herbs. Very good. Good chicken on the spit with pineapple, potatoes and veg, husband had the swordfish which he enjoyed. A couple of beers and coffees and that was all we wanted. Good service, not expensive, a real find.
