Description: Located in a tourist area with very nice gardens and parks around, has a fantastic view of the ocean. Their outdoor seating is quite pleasant. Turning the best part, the pizzas are the best on the island, plus pizzas have pasta, regional dishes of fish and meat as the "espetada regional". The service is fast and friendly employees always ready to do whatever it takes, even to clarify facts about the island.

We passed by this restaurant one night since it was close to our hotel and had relatively good TA score.We tried the pasta and the pizza. Both were very tasteful and perfectly prepared. Fastest service we ever received so far during our ten days' stay. We had the pizza after 10 min after we ordered inspite of the place being rather crowded. The pizza was so good we ordered another one although we were relatively full. Being just beside the ocean made the experience close to perfect.

We went for a walk looking for somewhere to have pizza for lunch and found this place.
Pizzas were various prices, we ordered two, one at 9.60 euro, the other 13.60 (ish). Both were well cooked and tasted fab, the beer was reasonably priced too, a great place for pizza.

Think this was the best pizza ever! Friends had ham & mushroom tagliatelle and seafood lasagne and both commented how lovely they were. A very busy restaurant - obviously because of its reputation. Highly recommended.

We visited here one evening whilst actually intending to visit another place close by, but that was closed.
We were attracted by the lively atmosphere as we passed by.
It is clearly popular with the locals and we were in the minority.

Wide choice of pizzas, pastas and traditional Madeiran food. Reasonable prices.
We both had pasta which was delicious, I also had chocolate mousse dessert.

Our only issue was that the service slowed up after our main course was served, like they forgot us after that and we had to keep asking for things. However on the plus aide it was nice to take our time and not be hassled.
