We were recommended this restaurant by the taxi driver that brought us from the airport, so local is good. We were not disapointed, met the same people in there every night, for the week that we were in the area so we kept going back. My husband is from Yorkshire and is fussy about his yorkshire puddings these were very good for Sunday lunch, We will make the effort next time we are in Madeira to return to this restaurant.

This restaurant is very popular because the food is good value and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The only drawback is its size. It's long and narrow with four people sitting on one side of the aisle and two on the other. Couples are often sat at tables that are touching one another. If they would find a larger venue I'm sure their business would increase and it would feel less claustrophobic.

They have got everything right here. Good clean restaurant, friendly staff and a good menu (but not too large) aimed at the tourist but with a Madeiran slant. They always seem busy in the evenings so booking is advised.

We always go here on our trips to Madeira and this time we went twice and were not disappointed. Well done and keep up the good work!

We have been staying in this area for ten years and this place is a welcome new addition. Snack/casual dining at a good price. The friendly service was a joy and the delivery of local "fast food" excellent. we only took lunch on this trip but will be back for more next year and will give evening meal a try then.

Enjoyed our two meals at X Tonel.
The service is very good and they seem so relaxed and friendly all the time. Menu although not extensive is varied enough and the food faultles. Many thanks
