“Bad service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

We asked for food with no pork and the waitress confirmed with the chief that the fisherman seafood soup is halal. However while we were drinking the soup we found pork in it! The waitress checked with the chief he said someone put the pork without him knowing!! They also charged us for the water and service!!

“Enjoyable Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

The Bacalhau appetiser tasted more like potato cakes as there was hardly any cod in it. However, the Stewed Seafood Rice was very tasty and there was a generous amount of seafood. The African Chicken was not as spicy as I expected, it was mild but delicious. The service was good but the dishes are quite pricey. Overall, it was a pleasant experience.

Booked this place for our wedding anniversary. The food was really good & could not fault, but the atmosphere & service was disappointing. Price was reasonable. I could not recommend this restaurant from my experience. We were the only diners eating inside which suited us for a romantic dinner, but the staff just forgot about us. They served our entres then less than a minute later served our main meals. When we finished they just left us & our plates at our table for over 30 minutes before they came to clear the plates. We decided to leave & had dessert elsewhere.

A rather authentic Portuguese restaurant. Nice food. Try the pig trotters. They are crispy and flavourful.

With so much choice of places to eat, we ended up disappointed that we had gone to the Madeira. The food was OK but service really poor. Despite being really quiet and plenty of staff, we were left having to try to attract people attention when we needed anything. We had to wait quite a while for our drinks to arrive, the food came almost too quickly and our final drinks never arrived. Wish we had gone to Café Deco instead.
