“Overpriced and poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Having read the reviews about the Panaroma restaurant four of us decided it would be a good place to visit. The free collection was very good, when we arrived at the restaurant the view was excellent but then it went downhill from there. The waiter had a commumication problem with us as we ordered starters and only one of us received it, It was total confusion. We all ordered Steaks which were very average and grisley. The waiter knocked a glass full of water over the table and it wasn't cleared up or replaced. The wine however was very good. When I return to Porto Santo I dont think I will be visiting this restaurant again.

“Tasty food with beautiful view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

Had the salmon with mango sauce, my wife had the steak with the "guacamole" sauce, both were very tasty and the house wine was excellent.
The view is beautiful and the pickup service very useful.
Number 1 on Porto Santo!

The view, the service, the wine menu, the food... Simply great!

Located on the top of the hill with a soberb view of the Porto Santo island, the experience of tasting great flavours, turn the moment unique!

The shuttle service is a plus!

A must go restaurant!

“Fabulous Location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Absolutely stunning views from this restaurant overlooking the West of the Island. Best to get a window table if you can. Free pick-up and drop off from/to hotel. The food was very good, particularly the king prawns and steak and we would have no hesitation in re-visiting. The recommended wine was very good and service was excellent. It was a slight shame that the restaurant wasn't busier but we were right at the end of the season and the fact that the Pestana hotel is all-inclusive seems to deter guests from visiting and supporting the local restaurateurs which is a real shame. Overall, a great experience and if you only visit one independent restaurant while staying on Porto Santo, then the Panorama is the one to go for.
