“Fabulous lunch.”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

After a long Lavada walk this was just the place to sit relax and have a very nice lunch, food was very good fresh and well presented the prawns were delicious and accompanying salad tasty.
A bit in the outskirts but worth a visit.

“Finally Lapas that come out of the sea and not the freezer”
Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

We had the best Lapas so far! What a difference in taste when they are fresh from the sea. Do not arrive to early in the evening.

“filled our bellies”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

went for a late meal with friends , nothing outstanding about the place or service . Prices average & food ok ! We had seafood pasta dish to share for two , the size of the dish was massive , it would be enough to share between 4 people ! It took around an hour for our meal to arrive , which was a really long time for one course meal & we were hungry ! Overall , its ok !

“Restaurant with sea view, specialised in sea food”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Nice restaurant focussed on tourists as customers (but as the island depends on tourism it's hard to find any other places). We cannot complain about that fact - you even get lunch during the afternoon which was comfortable for us as it was good to have your meal after returning from the hike and not have to be waiting until 7 pm.

Food and beverage was not cheap but about the usual price in Madeira, you'll get lapas from around 5 € up to 8€, here it comes for 6€. We had a fish soup for 2 people (which would have made 3 people happy) for 24 €, considering the fact that in most restaurants usually a main course is about 11 € plus side dishes, we don't find the price too high. Quality was very good, we loved the food.
