Greeted by friendly staff and a glass of Maderian wine. Seating was out on an outside area with shading if reqiuired. Large selection of all of the local dishes and a good choice of fresh fish caught that day. Good choice of home made puddings. Good coffee & a free local liquer ended the evening. Staff very welcoming and friendly.

We ate here on a couple of occasions when we visited the island last year and were impressed with the restaurant. However not as good this year. We had two meals here this time and the food was ok, but nothing to shout about. Chicken was tasteless and meat on skewers was bland and fairly tough. My husband said fish was nice and our daughter liked her steak and the desserts. Waiters are all very friendly but service was a little slow and the place didn't seem as clean this year.

We were shown to a corner table which turned out to be in the smoking area. Luckily only one smoker on next door table. Waiters clearly favoured locals over visitors - that's a big mistake, Summertime. Food was OK and served in an acceptable time. From then on we were largely ignored until we asked for the bill. Not a great dining experience.
