We were shy to enter; the outside decor was a bit overwhelming to say the least with gnomes, elves, flowers what have you on Christmas display. Out came the chef, Filipe, a true polyglot, who spoke 5 languages at an accelerating speed and convinced us to come in. And what a treat! It is a tiny restaurant with lot of action, chaotic almost, with the chef and three waiters running madly around. The chef is proud of the fish and pushes the fish trolley around to let everybody see the freshness and quality. I couldn't stop laughing it was such a menace, but most importantly without a doubt the best meal we had on Madeira, and the best tomato soup ever! Loved the soup, the salad, the meat, the vine and the bill didn't make us cry either. Unfortunately we found the place on our last night, otherwise we would have had all our meals there. It seemed that a dinner reservation is a must but unlike some other restaurants, they managed to fit everybody in without any complaints or problems. LOVED the place!
