“Top Notch”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

My wife and I actually ate here three times during our recent holiday on Madeira. We cannot speak highly enough of this restaurant the food is great and the owners are dedicated to ensuring that everything is exactly as it should be. The restaurant has some great views looking down the valley into Machico it's spotlessly clean and the food is very good value. Well worth a visit if your in the area in fact it's well worth going out of your way for.

“Another great recommend”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

We would not have known of this place had it not been for Trip Advisor. It is quite a drive up the hill out of Machico but worth it. Lilia is a wonderful hostess and the food is excellent. The place has been decorated very stylishly and for once there is no television in the restaurant. Her husband does the cooking and comes out to speak to the guests once he has done his bit. This place really is a cut above anything else you will find at this price range on Madeira. Highly recommended.

“Excellent”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Excellent food, view, fish, portuguese food and service. Looking forward to having lunch there again. Relatively near the airport. Up in the hills with an excellent view. Dessert was also surprisingly nice. Hard to find a place with such great food in the Machico area.

“Lily's...you can feel the passion”
Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

The food...it's delicious. Fresh ingredients. The sauces are to die for. The portions are of good size. The prices are very reasonable. But what puts Lily's in a league of its own...are the 2 owners..and their passion for their customers. Lily works the front of the house...always with a smile..a recommendation ..checking in to make sure you are enjoying everything. She is a very nice person! And her husband is the chef. We eat out a lot...and are pretty good cooks ourselves. But his food is to die for. Yummy! This is a must place. They are open for lunch and dinner...closed Mondays. We ate there 4 times in 1 week...can I compliment them any more? Tom and Bev USA

“excellent food, friendly service, good value”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

We went there today on the advice of TA and were very happy. Our 2 children were made welcome and we had a relaxing time with a good view and attentive service. The food was excellent too - my wife's fish and my steak were lovely and the deserts good too. Highly recommended.
