Dining at A Central in Canico is so pleasant, almost as if you're going to a friend's place for a meal. The service is friendly, the food unpretentious and you will leave with a full tummy and surprised with the small bill.
I visit Madeira often and this place is always a must, the big attraction is the combination of Portuguese and Brazilian dishes and the lovely wine.
The portions are large so be smart as you can over order.
Picanha is a delicious dish and a must try, you get your vegetables and rice and as much meat as you wish, it is a meat lover's place, would not recommend it to vegetarians.
A Central is located in the Canico Centro, a small town between Funchal and Santa Cruz and the restaurant is on the right next to the church, not hard to find, although you might feel as you're entering a local's house. In the evening is easier to park.
This restaurant is mainly visited by the locals but don't be shy and say hello and you will feel immediately the warmth of its visitors and it's staff.
