We visited this restaurant on two occasions as we were so impressed after our first meal there. The staff were very friendly, you were greeted with a complimentary glass of Madeira wine, and the service was superb. On top of all of that the Boco de Caco, otherwise known as their local garlic bread made from sweet potato was excellent and a more than ample portion. The menu choice was very good, ranging from the local scabbard fish through a full range of meats.

I had the mini rodizio at €13.50, which was a selection of 7 meats and it just kept coming. It was fresh, well cooked and was followed up with fresh grilled pineapple.

The total bill for an evening meal with drinks for three people came to €55.00, which included a tip; what fantastic value. I just don't how they do it at that price.

In this restaurant the show is more important than the food. The waiters run around with the food yelling meep, meep. Our first course was good, but the main dish was disappointing. Looking around we saw that people got more meat than could ever eat. So when the quality of the food is more important than the show you should avoid this restaurant.

Despite being away from the beach-side hotels in the old village, the place is always full of tourists and locals. The staff is friendly, while all the food is good and tasty, the place is special for its meat-on-a-spit all-you-can eat rodizio. Don't miss it, not just a good value, it's also made to perfection both in taste and in style.

I've been there twice and each time I hate very well. They mainly serve different kind of meat cooked on a spit in an open fire, but the quality of the meat and the seasonig are exceptional! Try also the grilled pineapple (abacachi grelhado) it's very good.
The stuff is very friendly and make you really enjoy your food.
