Went here for an early dinner. We had not made reservation but as it was about 18.00 in the evening there was room for us. We both had swordfish and it was marvellous. Price was not bad either. Scenery is great. Recommend.

We walked to the restaurant a spent a long lunch enjoying the food, the wine and the view. Well worth the walk. Do yourself a big favour and explore this stretch of the coast. The tunnel is great fun too!

They have all kind of fish and sea food that we can find in Madeira. Always very fresh and very well coocked. The view is a plus. We can watch the Atlantic and a litle of Madeira'a landscape.

Restaurant at me seemed hasty impression - quickly attend to what most tourists. A little time on the choice of menus, all recommend the mixed grill of fish. But the grilled fish was very good - only serving the fish to wet lettuce leaf was...More

Taken there by Madeiran family friends; a real treat as it serves locally produced fare which is (to us) unusual, but tasty, very different and somewhere we're aching to go back to. Service was very friendly despite us not speaking Portuguese, and them speaking very...More
