I am not inclined to visit English named restaurants on holiday but made an exception on the basis of a recommendation. The red lion is popular . It has a typical local menu. The food and service were good and I would recommend for families with smaller children.

The Red Lion is just across the road from the Pestana Carlton and represents good value for money. The staff are curtious and friendly. On the weekend there is live but not loud music.

First visited the Red Lion a couple of years ago whilst in Madeira for New Year. I can honestly say that the food and service have not depreciated with time it is still a great meal and a lovely atmosphere. Ate here a number of times on our recent visit and every meal was perfect. Cannot fault anything. Feeling hungry now just writing this!

Amazing value for money, especially the ice cream, nice staff, with amazing food! The tuna steak was incredible and easy to get to.

We came back after a pleasant experience last year and I am pleased to report it's still very good. It's a great place to take a break on your walk back from town and a handy alternative to the facilities of the Carlton if you're staying there
