This restaurant serves the best esperada I ever had here in the Madeira island It's located on the high area in Cámara de Lobos Very nice restaurant with excellent service, friendly, family oriented. The meat is greatly seasoned and cooked on the grill. The fried polenta is number one. I recommend this restaura without any hesitations.
