“Very good restaurant, really friendly and fun staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

We really enjoyed eating here. The beef was very good, and the portions generous. I had the house special sliced beef and they keep topping you up until you cannot eat any more!

A really nice ambience, and the staff are very friendly and like a laugh and joke.

My only Beef (excuse the pun) is the deserts. They are cheap, and not very nice. Although my son did enjoy his ice cream. I think they should upgrade the deserts and charge more, as it would be a more fitting end to a lovely meal. I have still given them 5 and excellent as the overall experience is excellent when the fact that it is in a tourist trap is taken in to consideration.

“Delicious pichana and more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

We had a lot of very enjoyable meals during our ten day visit to Madeira but this was one of our favourites. After some good starters, two of our group opted for the house speciality, the pichana- tender skewered beef sliced directly on to your plate. Staff circulate regularly to provide top-ups until you're full, and the meat was very rare (as requested) and succulent. This may sound a bit gimmicky, but the quality of the food and the service- including thoughtful advice on which wine to choose from the extensive selection- ensure it doesn't come across as such. There's a wide range of main dishes in addition to the pichana and the other people in our group thoroughly enjoyed their Iberian pork tenderloin. Sides were exceptionally good (I particularly liked the sweet potato) and a generous selection was included with the price of the main dishes. Desserts were also delicious and it was nice to have the option of something other than the typical caramel or passion fruit pudding, although these are available too and are done very well.
