Great location - right in the centre and very convenient. Sadly the service and food just didn't support it. We ordered basic stuff - the espetada with banana speciality and a spaghetti bolognese. It took ages to come.. When asked if we'd enjoyed it we said it had been cold (we were so hungry after the wait that we couldn't... More

We went to The Solar do Infante several times for coffee but Only ate at once –– Downstairs is more of a cafe with a reasonable sized outside terrace, it was this outside terrace that was its main attraction. Upstairs was the main restaurant but the one time that we did eat there, we took our meal on the outside... More

Ate here once and it was okay, nothing special, also went here for drinks a few times but the service was always very slow. At the last visit (lunchtime) the service was none-existent so we left and went elsewhere. Reasonable prices and a good location but don't go if you are in any sort of hurry !

Some strange reviews recently. Ordered drinks, 3 pasta dishes and a rather delicious tomato and fresh cheese salad. Service quick and friendly despite a bit of a language barrier (mooing and clucking to denote which animals were being served on the daily menu). Food was very good for the price - €9 per head incl drinks, water and service.

It is one of the worst restaurant that I've visited in my life we ordered drinks and food. After 25 min of waiting we asked where are our drinks. We get it after our intervention but instead of fresh orange juice we get something total different. Food that we ordered we get after hour of waiting. The only thing what... More

For a few minutes I tried to order something to eat. Request drinks are the only words that the waiters know in English (they are speak here only in Portuguese). I ordered three different fish along with Espada and all missing. You can eat here just lousy spaghetti

Porto Santo Island should be a 'tick-box' event if you travel to Madeira or you want something as a 'pioneer' holiday venue and so you expect the very hardest work from the staff and delivery of any restaurant here to make sure the island succeeds... this place sadly failed me on too many counts! It was clean and the lady... More

The food here is really tasty, we had shrimps and "Polvo à Lagareiro" which were delicious. The service was ok. Would recommend a visit for dinner.
