How beautiful place O'Picado is! Very enjoyed last night environment! The guitar sounds so romantic plus nice bottle of wine, and when food arrived it completed all evening in full...tastes so freshly cooked and as you prefer. Very welcoming and friendly team. Everything around made on it's own style of Madeira no other place having beauty as O'Picado. it's not posh but don't even need to be this place like home you are welcome, greeted well, food yummy, and atmosphere soaking you in to stay more and more.

I have been a regular customer of this beautifully unique restaurant for a couple of years now and I cannot fault anything about it. The food is delicious and I can honestly say I have had the most enjoyable meals here more than anywhere else in Essex. The staff are always welcoming and the whole atmosphere of the place makes me feel like I'm on holiday. It has a beautiful feel, the decor is quirky and welcoming and I have felt proud to introduce family and friends to this wonderful place! Don't miss out, definitely worth a visit!

I went with friends, and not knowing what to expect, I was very pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious and served quickly, the staff were all accommodating, extremely friendly and welcoming. We sat in the main restaurant, where there was a really nice warm atmosphere. There is also a large outdoor seating area, which was very nicely decorated and under a large pergola, which must be lovely on a Summer's evening. They clearly had a lot of regulars and greeted them by name, which is always a sure sign of a great restaurant to me. The prices were also very reasonable and the bill came to much less than I was expecting. The decor and atmosphere feels like you're on holiday, without actually travelling anywhere, which I love and I can see exactly why they have so many regulars. Were it not quite a distance from me currently, I can see myself thoroughly enjoying spending a couple of nights a week there. Despite the distance, I will definitely be returning.
