visited this restaurant at lunchtime only six other people there, hence not much of a buzz. All others were locals and the food was fabulous. We had pork, carved off a skewer at the table, as much as we could eat, never tasted pork so good! Black beans, cabbage and rice might not sound appetizing perfectly. hot pineapple sliced at the table for desert. house wine good and reasonable .price. They told us the beef is better, can't wait to find out!

Well worth the 15-20 minute drive from Funchal. Bustling restaurant with fast, efficient service. Delicious grilled and roast meat in huge or even all-you-can eat portions, served with rice, black beans and cabbage. Outer slices of beef can be a little salty. Beef is served medium-rare. We asked for a wine recommendation and got a very nice Douro for €15. Finished off with complimentary roast pineapple. Outstanding value for money.

Went here because of all the reviews on Tripadvisor. Went here twice, first time we took the chateau briand for two, Wauw they know how the prepare a steak! During the diner we saw the chefs walking around with big pieces of meat. Wondering what that was. The lady from the restaurant let us taste the pineapple dessert for free!
Next day we went back and took the dish were the chefs comes at your table with the meat. 5 different kinds of meat and they keep on coming only 13,50 euro!!! Amazing what they do with the meat. My husband now took the chateau briand just for himselve. If you stay in Canico you MUST go to Cental!

Ignore the naff plastic sign outside, this restaurant was our favourite on the island. Go for dinner on the weekend when it's lively (full of locals, always a good sign) but you'll need to make a reservation. Dinner for 2 people is about €35 excluding wine - very good value for the quantity of food. The translated English menu was a bit of a mystery but order the mixed 7 meats. All brought to your table hot off the flaming grill on skewers and sliced onto your plate.

This is one of our favourite restaurants not only in Canico but on the whole island. We have never had a poor meal. Parking during the day is quite difficult but the restaurant will pick you up from your hotel. This might mean some waiting at the end. We ate the mixed fish kebab (espetada) and the mini meat roast. The menu might have said "mini" - but it was huge - freshly roasted and lean pork, beef, chicken, turkey, gammon, etc - sliced at your table. The fish included prawns, squid, tuna and white fish. Lovely! The chips and veg accompaniment was good. We didn't have room for pudding! There were lots of locals eating in the restaurant and the atmosphere is good. 2 courses with a glass of wine and a litre of water cost 38 euros - quite expensive for Madeira but still good value. We highly recommend this restaurant.
