The Service was not good because we received completly different thing what we ordered (food and drinks). The snacks were very expensive (4 little sliced cheese for 3,80€) The white wine was warm and the potatoes were cooked with the microwave! A disaster!

Busy place it´s hard to get a table. The speciality of the house it´s a tender meat in big skewers. The meat was delicious and juicy. The french fries really crunchy. Great Lunch. A little bit noisy for my taste.

A nice place to eat near the Bairro Alto, were you can have a taste of Madeira island specialities like the Espetada. Quick service and price not bad.

This place was recommended by a local and did not dissapoint. The beef brochette cooked on a bay twig was delecious, along with fresh fried potatos slices and mixed salad.

This is a small "casa de pasto" of Madeira cuisine, where you can taste the real flavours from the Islands. The food is great, the environment is from an old typical portuguese restaurant where the food is what it counts. If you're a local you...More
