At the end of the Ribeira Frio to Portela levada walk we usually visit the Miradouro Da Portela Restaurante in Portela. After a short pause to enjoy the fantastic view opposite the restaurant, we look forward to Caldo Verde soup, Espetada with some good meat...More

We dropped by there just to have beer after a long hike. We were quite astounded at the price 4.60€ as it was going to be the most expensive beer we'd had on the island. When I asked for a menu to check the price,...More

We went here tonight on a Sunday evening at the end of a long walk. The restaurant had only locals eating and the menu was a bit restricted. We both had steak kebabs with chips and salad the quality was way above anything else we...More

We found this place on the off chance and decided to stop for lunch. The food here was excellent and we had no complaints. We had the steak on the skewers cooked in the fire and it was excellent. Our host was very nice and...More

My wife use to go there in the childhood with her parents. The place was very dark and not so clean, it was only one person to serve and it took a loong time. Tomato soup was not bad but not brilliant. We asked for...More

My wife and I ended up there after a wonderful walk from Ribeiro Frio-Portela. After a quick look at the menu, we got frightened by the prices and we only dared to order a soup. I think that was not only the most expensive soup...More

You cant visit Madeira without trying Espetada, a large skewer of biggish chunks of beef. Here you get in my opinion the best Espetada on the island. This is an authentic local bar / restaurant where the meat comes on the longest skewers you are...More

Our favourite Espetada Restaurant in Madeira, been visiting this restaurant for 25+ years! I know it is dark inside and the seats are benches and the owner doesn't speak much English but after going there for more than most it doesn't really matter one bit,...More

Make sure to order the fillet beef espetada (skewer that's hung vertically above your table) and you won't get a better one on the islands. The authentic Madeirense tomato soup is totally scrumptious as well. And unless you're driving, do sample their anisette ponchas -...More
