Fish was amazing - very freshed and cooked on the grill outside. Very nice location overlooking the bay and although there are cheaper restaurants about, it wasnt so expensive. Well worth a visit

This is a clean and comfortable restaurant right at the best sand beach of Madeira. The food is fresh and well prepared. The waiters are nice. Comparing the level of the food, it was not an expensive restaurant.

We came to Machico to spend the day before flying home in the evening. In my opinion Funchal has been overdeveloped and spolt and it is worth considering staying in Machico which is the second largest town in Madeira. This is a lovely place with a great (imported) golden beach.
We had lunch at MareAlta restaurant which is a modern building overlooking the sea.
It was saturday and the restaurant was very busy. Most customers were either Madeirans or Portuguese visitors, which is a good sign.
We both had fish soup, which was really lovely followed by calamari and tuna. Large portions and all beautifully cooked. This was the best meal we had in Madeira. We shared a pudding and had coffee. All this plus a bottle of white wine was 42 Euros. Fantastic value for such a good meal.

If you want to eat fresh fish with a view over the Atlantic Ocean (not far from Funchal and the airport)? Go to this wonderful restaurant. We could choose from all kinds of fresh fish, lobster, mussels, etcetera which had swum in the ocean that very morning. Very good and friendly staff. Very good value for money as well.

And I had the best chocolate cake ever for desert. Absolutely fabulous!!!

We had lunch at this fish restaurant which is located on the seafront in Machico overlooking the bay. It is a modern glass and wood building with a cabinet displaying the fresh fish and seafood. We chose a mixed fish grill and were very happy with the result. Service is low-key and the place has a very relaxing ambience. Well worth a visit.
