We stumbled upon this bar/ restaurant whilst trying to find another one and were glad we called a halt to our search! The food available is varied, the staff helpful in the best way they could be with limited English combined with our even more limited Portuguese! The location was perfect for people watching whilst enjoying a glass of beer or wine. The steak on the stone was so impressive my husband would have gladly eaten there every night, as it was we were there 3 evenings out of our 7 on the island of Porto Santo.

Good restaurant to have a cool beer or a meal, in the historical centre of Porto Santo.

On a day trip from Madeira, we booked a bus tour of the island upon arrival and asked for recommendations for a place to eat lunch and so ended up at the Baiana. It was idyllic sitting under the sunshades near the old church. Although quiet when we arrived, the tables filled up as we were eating. Service was very good indeed, brisk but not hurried, which suited us as we had a bus to catch! I had tuna steak sandwich, good but too much bread for my taste. My husband tucked into sardines with potatoes and salad which he found not as good as some he had enjoyed on Madeira.

we went for 2 weeks holidays to madeira and decided to go for 1 night cruise to porto santo. we had dinner in baiana and it was really the worst food we had during all our holidays, we had some fish - we actually asked which fish is the best - and we could not finish it, even though we took 1 portion for 2 people. it was hard, not juice - really really bad. the worst memory from porto santo

I went to this restaurant on a lovely summer's night. The atmosphere was great outside but a little quiet inside. We sat down and read the menu. I was happy with my food but the waitress kept getting things wrong and seemed a little tense.
