Description: The North Pole Restaurant opened in 1986 and is located in a privileged area of Porto Moniz, in Largo das Pools, the ideal place for a meal after a morning or beach day in the natural pools. Come have lunch or dinner at the North Pole have a terrace with partial views of the sea and the islet Mole, the hallmarks of Porto Moniz. Come experience the fresh fish dishes, seafood and meat we have for you. Imagine yourself in a fantastic sunny day, with sea view to enjoy a dose of baked grilled limpets of Porto Moniz seas, a meal or a typical dish of Madeira as tasty tuna steak with fried corn or fillet sword with banana or passion fruit. Also try our homemade passion fruit pudding. The North Pole Restaurant has a total of 212 seats, lounge, bar and terrace and public parking at the door. We do group bookings.

“Tucked away”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

This restaurant is not my favorite but when desperate, one must eat. The value is just not there compared to other surrounding restaurants. The food is average hence my rating. There is no view but of the parking lot and a bit of the sea should you get a table on that side of the restaurant.

“Nice food, lousy staff”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

We were here for lunch. At first the waiter was friendly, was not too difficult, since we were the only ones.

Nice food, decent home-cooking.

Then a group arrived for drinks.

When we tried to ask for the check we were completely ignored several times. When I finally got through (in a rather direct way, threatening that I was going to leave), they told me they didn't accept Amex. So I gave my Visa but suddenly the credit card terminal was not working properly. Bit strange since just 1 hour before used at at the local gas station and afterwards never had a problem with it. Finally, being fed up, I paid cash.
