Close to the beach, here you can eat some good snacks like picado and bolo do caco. Dont Forget the sangria!

Stopped here after a long day hiking. Great outdoor seating, pizzas were big and filling, beer was cold and the service was friendly and professional. Good value for money.

We tried out all restaurants in Ponta do Sol, this one was a failure. The codfish was terrible, the dorada OK, and french fries not good either. The price did not at all reflect the quality.

In my opinion one of the best restaurants. I am surprised by the low score for other travelers! We liked it. We dined at this restaurant twice.

Went there on two occasions, we had a pizza which was very good, big and filling but returned and had a normal meal on another day, good portion size but nothing special in the food. The food was not nicely presented and plate was dirty all around and was not very appetizing Service was ok and friendly.

I'll be honest it isn't easy finding diverse or varied cuisine on Madeira - especially outside of Funchal and especially once you've been there for a week and had more than your fair share of espetadas and imported seafood. However Lugar de Baixo achieved a particularly low standard of cookery - thrown together with no thought, tasteless cubes of beef... More
