The service was excellent and the waiter couldn't do enough to accommodate what we wanted. We visited twice whilst we were on holiday and on both occasions the fish dishes we had were
tasty and well presented. The ambience was also good, and we were not as crammed in as some of the other restaurants locally.

We had dinner two times outside on the small terrace in the rear of the restaurant. Service was great, so was the food. If they manage to reduce the preparation time for the "flambe" desserts ...

We walked from Four Views Oasis to La Terraca (long walk) on the first evening of our holiday. Our waiter was very pleasant but very haphazard, served us someone elses food and then grabbed it back just as we were about to eat. They state that they drop you back to your hotel (which is why we walked there) but when we asked we were told they could not give us a lift as they were busy. There was a party booked in but it was not that busy. Needless to say we did not go back.

We tried a variety of Madeiran foods at La Terraca, including bolo da caco, grilled limpets and espatada. All were lovely, and inexpensive compared to other restaurants in the area. However, the highlight of our meal was our lovely waiter Carlos, who treated us very well and gave us good insights into Madeiran food, wine, culture and language. We learnt a lot and his sense of humour and enthusiasm meant we had a wonderful night.

The place is a listele far from centre Canico this is why is cheaper for the same dishes like the central restaurants next to the Church!

It is a little over decorated... But the food is good!
Avoid soups and seafood like shrimps or calamari, they are not l
