We love this little restaurant because it serves excellent food at reasonable prices and nothing is too much trouble for the owners, Dino and Luisa. Our particular favourite is Friday evening, when the restaurant is usually heaving with people and it's advisable to book. We always seem to end up making new friends on these occasions. The special fish and chips is better than anything we have EVER tasted in the UK. On our last visit, there was an uncharacteristic delay with our food because the restaurant was extremely busy. Dino was most apologetic and gave us a free bottle of wine with our meal to compensate. We look forward to seeing you next year, Dino.

Following other reports onTripadvisor we visited this little restaurant/bar and were not disappointed. The food was of a very high standard and service was excellent too. We had hoped to try the 'fish & chip' night on Friday but were too late as they were already booked out.
We had lunch there on our last day and again were very happy. The location is a little hard to find as there are no large signs but it is just above the Pingu Dolce supermarket on the ege of the shopping centre.

A bit difficult to find, but worth it! Excellent service, good food, big portions, and very small prices... The place is not so fancy, but there are some tables with a view on the ocean. If you are staying in the Lido, you must go!

Dino and Luisa do a great job at this restaurant. The food is consistently good and I heard someone say this year that the fish and chips on a Friday are better than they get at home! The new tables and chairs are definitely an improvement. I don't think you can eat better anywhere on Madeira for the same price.

Just back from 2 weeks saying at Porto Mare, and visited this bar nearly everyday for a lunchtime drink and snack. Also ate at the Baracuda several nights and found the food and service excellent for a small sized establishment. Dino is an excellent host and provides one of the best lunchtime sea views in the area over a chilled beer or two.
