We've visited Casa Velha on previous trips to Madeira and it is excellent. Having not visited for several years my husband and I didn't really remember the layout when his parents suggested we eat there on our last night in Madeira, this trip with our eight month old daughter. We had forgotten there was a flight of stairs up to the restaurant, after we walked from our hotel with a stroller. We also didn't remember the bathrooms were a flight downstairs, and no changing table. Despite those things, the staff was fantastic, they did have a highchair and the hostess was lovely to set up a cushion in the ladies room as a makeshift changing table. We made a reservation super early in an attempt to have a nice dinner before the baby got too tired and to try not to disturb other diners at what it a very romantic dinner site. Despite our best efforts my husband, daughter and I left immediately after the main course, leaving the inlaws and another couple to enjoy dessert and the rest of the evening. The food was delicous and service was wonderful, just not a place for kids of any age. Next trip, we will leave the baby with a sitter and have a nice quiet romantic dinner, just the two of us.
