Amazing food, amazing staff. The fish we had was excellent and the beef on the second visit was some of the very best we have ever eaten. Not much else to say really, if you like good food, good atmosphere and great staff then visit here. Just be aware the portions are not for the faint hearted. If you have... More

Though we've visited Madeira several times we only discovered this excellent restaurant - thanks to Tripadvisor reviews - this time. We had dinner there on the first evening of our week-long visit and enjoyed it so much that we ate there on two more evenings. You get an amuse-bouche consisting of a small fishcake and if I have a criticism... More

Had several delicious and high quality meals on recent visit to Madeira. The restaurant has a wide choice of fish on menu, as well as meat dishes,and all is cooked with skill and is very tasty and well presented. Plentiful side dishes included in price. Service is excellent from all staff. Highly recommended and also the sister restaurant upstairs

Having tried several different restaurants some rating higher than this one we can honestly say this was by far the best. Very friendly and prompt service. Mammoth portion sizes, think about sharing dishes. The beef on the stone was really tender, a great flavour but enormous with generous portions of chips and vegetables. The Douro red wine was also very... More

A lovely welcoming fish restaurant, whose staff are excellent at catering for food allergies. We tend to go for the grilled selection of different fish and sea-food plus a coffee and a glass of wine. Excellent value with a complimentary starter and a complimentary lemon and almond poncha thrown in.

Good surroundings but the service not so good. We got the impression that as we didn't choose any of the fish in the tank shown to us as we entered that they really weren't bothered. We chose instead seafood salads which took an age to arrive. Then at the end of the meal the bill eventually arrived 15 minutes after... More

Visited three times during our holiday and were welcomed back as regular customers over the last 10 years. Good food, friendly service and generous portions. Had both meat dishes (Steak Dianne particularly good) and lots of fresh fish expertly cooked.

My wife and I always visit 2/3 times when we are in Maderia. We use their free pickup bus. Fish is good size portions at reasonable prices. We have taken friends many times and they have returned as well by them selves.

I was a bit skeptical thinking that this restaurant would be one of this tourist traps, but I was very surprised by the quality of the food and the service. The different kinds of fish we have tried were delicious as well as the Madeira wine and the dessert. Big portions were served, as commonly found in Portugal. I strongly... More

Just behind the Irish bar, (Hole In One), we found this place to be an excellent fish restaurant, and the service was excellent. Portions were quite large, so by the end of the meal we were well fed! This is not only a fish restaurant, they serve meats as well, however we ate fish so can't comment on any other... More
