“Our First Meal in Maderia”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

On arriving on the island after long airline delays, this fortunately was our first stop and what a good stop it was.
Outstanding service with outstanding food, this really was a great experience. We have since found that prices were a bit higher than normal, however for the total quality of every aspect of our visit it was well worth every Euro, and by far cheaper than anything similar in the UK

“The best situation to eat in Jardim do Mar ...”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

The Hotel Jardim do Mar has been completely renovated since we first visited here, two years ago. We tried the restaurant this visit and sat on the roof terrace. The service was good and the fish most enjoyable (tuna and scabbard fish with banana). Started with the fish soup, which was a meal in it's own right! We will be going again before we leave for home.

“Too expensive for the service”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I was recomended to go to this restaurant, where the fish was amazing, but well, it wasn't the expectable... I consider that a restaurant should please all customers, but that doesn't happens. The tuna fish was accompanied with unusual vegetables and the rice was bad... The problem is that the final bill was too much for the service and quality of food.

I would't recommend to anyone...

“A great find !”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We came across Tar Mar wanting a simple fish lunch and we immediately fell for their relaxed but excellent service and great food. Over a 2 week stay on the Island we enjoyed it so much we went back several times. We tried a wide range of their fish and seafood and the quality was always superb. Their octopus stew, squid and parrot fish were particular highlights, and their range of home-made ice creams also hit the spot ....loved their pitanga ice-cream ! We hope you also will be lucky enough to enjoy an evening meal at Tar Mar on their terrace and watch an amazing sunset across the Atlantic.
