Food tastes fantastic, beautifully cooked. It's quiet, but that's because it's a quiet time. Lovely staff - perfectly attentive.

It's ok but nothing more. The staff were pleasant but the food, whilst pleasant, was not worth what we paid bearing in mind other places we ate at provided better quality for less money. The soup was a thickened unseasoned puree. The prawns were overcooked although the sauce they came in was tasty. The main courses were mixed. The fish... More

Fair location looking out to sea from veranda - very nice to watch the sun go down. The food was pleasant if unremarkable, and the service was efficient if not attentive. If you are looking for a nice meal at a fair price €17 for two including drink, this could suit. It was quieter than the rest of the strip... More

We dropped in for lunch because the restaurant looked nice and were not disappointed. The fish dishes madeiran style are excellent and sitting outside was quite nice this time of year. The fish was perfectly done. The menu offered a variety of choices and all other dishes we saw looked nice as well.

On a tour of the southwest coast, we stopped here for lunch. It looks nice and there is a nice view from the outside tables, but that's it. We ordered something to drink and had a good look at the menu. Everything seemed to be delicious, but we were dissapointed. It took forever to get our food - several people... More

Service was efficient but needs a tack of friendliness, a smile or charming remark. The food served was good. Had beirada, limpets (lapas) and garlic bread. Were seated on the small terrace with a group of 6 people.

Thank Veranderaar
