I genuinely cant believe this restaurant isn't in the top 5 in Madeira, what an amazing gem. Such a beautiful, utterly romantic setting, with the tastiest meal I've had in my whole holiday in Madeira. I would highly recommend it.

The restaurant was located near our hotel and we decided to get lunch just before our flight home. Garden with plenty of orchids around the tables is really amazing. But in the center a big dragon tree makes good job giving a shadow for us....More

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at O Dragoeiro, the favourite choice of some friends we met whilst on holiday in Funchal. The food was very good but in reality we should have ordered from the tourist menu as what we received was really no better........More

Not specifically. There are meatfree dishes but they usually contain fish or seafood. You can always opt for just vegetables. If you want vegetarian, you should go to a vegetarian restaurant, of which there are few.
