Dear Client,

Thank you for the short but rewarding feedback about your experience at Med restaurant.

The meat lovers night is in fact a must. The meat we use is local, matured during 14 days and only after that goes to your plate with the flavors on top after this procedures to make the meat tender and even more tasty.

It will be a pleasure to have you again in our place.

Warm regards,

Muito Obrigado,

“Perhaps not the best night, but good food”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

We were staying in the hotel complex and came here for an evening meal.
The food and service were excellent, however sitting outside there was little atmosphere made worse by a BBQ night by the nearby pool with African style drumming and shouting which may have been better if we could have seen what was happening rather than just hearing.
The starter was excellent however I found the fish that I had a too large and not complimented with enough sauce or sides, though it was excellently cooked.

Enjoyable evening.

“Good food & excellent service”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We were staying at the Porto Bay resort, so were keen to give this restaurant a try. The food was consistently good and the manager made a great effort to produce an excellent Portuguese red wine - he clearly knows his wines well and has a passion for them. He also has the sense to seat the families with young children in the outside area.

“Last holiday evening - Perfect!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We checked at tripadvisor when we searched for a restaurant for our last dinner at Madeira - Med was among the top choices, and we booked a table. It is not very easy to find, but not let this stop you!
We were very well taken care of; got a nice table and an exiting menu. The kitchen were very flexible with designing a chicken meal that suited our teenager daughter and twelve year old son. Only downside, according to our son, was the fact that it was no wifi :-) We were actually happy about this, then we could talk instead....
We had a very tasty steak, perfectly cooked. We are not very familiar with Portuguese wine, but got good help from the staff, especially the manager of the evening. Lovely wine lovely dinner.
We choose a cheese platter for dessert and got a glass of dessert wine on the house!! When I told him that I am not very found of these types of wine it took less then a minute before I had a delicious glass of red wine.
During the meal when it got darker outside - the waiters put more candles on the table - my remark that I love candles, did get noticed - soon we had extra candles on the table!!
The bill was also a great pleasure; 120 euros for four persons for such a delicious meal is a great deal!!
We will defiantly come back for another visit, and will recommend it to friends and family!!!
Thank you for a good experience!
