A rather large restaurant compared to others we visited in Madeira. We (4) enjoyed scabbard and lamb chops. I had my scabbard fried which comes with the traditional fried banana and cheese, nice. My wife had hers grilled but this comes with bone in. Our server was kind enough to debone it for her and you could tell that she... More

Attended a dinner and folklore evening here with Windsor Travel (recommended by Jet2). This was a most enjoyable evening. The food was very good value for money and the local singing and dancing were great fun. Visitors were invited to join in with the dancing!

There is ample parking and the dining areas higher up gives a grand view of the Lobos valley and town. The limpets with garlic bread as starters was a good welcome- juicy tender and... More

I've been coming to this place every time I am in Madeira as it's the best place for families with kids since it has a playground on the rooftop which has several cameras and you can let your kids playing around while you eat and and the same time keeping an eye on them. Food is quite good, sometimes they... More

The espetadas served here are the best we've ever eaten. Unfortunately the restaurant is a few miles out of Funchal above Camara de Lobos so a taxi fare is expensive. However if you have a hire car then it's no problem getting there via the Rapido and it'sworth the treck as the food is fabulous. When we were there in... More
