Rubi's is situated close to the Forum shopping centre. They provide excellent food at great prices and it is frequented by locals and tourists alike.
We recently visited Madeira and stayed at the Pestana Grand, a lovely 5 star hotel on the sea front. There are many restaurants in the area but they tend to specialise e.g. fish, steak etc... and are quite expensive.
We went to Rubi's on a friend's recommendation and we were not disappointed. There is a great selection of food ranging from burgers and omelettes to steaks and fish. Between our family and friends, we managed to sample most of the items on the menu during our stay.
For children, they do a number of meal deals for under 5 euros that include a drink. Their steaks are around 10 - 12 euros but are out of this world and melt in the mouth, especially the one served in mushroom sauce with lots of fresh salad.
The local Scabbard (Espada) fish is also delicious and has more of a meaty flavour than fish and certainly tastes better than it looks. Of particular note is the "regional bread", the Madeiran version of garlic bread - an excellent starter to your meal.
All in all, well worth a visit if you are in the area and looking for something to suit everyone at a reasonable price - we loved it!
