I came here as part of the "Typical Madeira Evening". It is what it is, good fun with local food and ample wine and beer. Having read previous reviews it is my belief that some people are taking their complaints far too seriously especially given the low cost, what can you possibly expect foe 30 euros which include pick up...

We booked this evening through Madeira Island Tours. At 30 Euros each it was fine if the concept had been thought through. We were picked up promptly and taken to the venue 10 minutes outside of Funchal Centre. Unfortunately, it was one of their quiet nights so totally lacked atmosphere and was like sitting in an empty school hall with... More

I really enjoyed this dinner and show. The food was good and the various entertainers were so mush fun and talented. A great place to have an enjoyable dinner with folk music and a big party atmosphere.

First you will enjoy plenty of food such as meat(espetada), salads, typical sides wine, soft drinks and nice dessert and during the dinner you will enjoy the unforgettable typical dancing of Portugal-Madeira (Centro cultural San Antonio). You will get involved in typical dancing!! Highly recommended.

Our travel group was taken to this restaurant for a traditional Madeiran evening on the last night of our holiday. Everyone was in high spirits and we all enjoyed the simple meal and especially the entertainment. We were served barbecued meat on skewers accompanied by a corn bread and salad, but unfortunately the wine appeared to have been watered down.... More

Just spent a pleasant evening with our travelling tour group. Company was excellent, entertainment was very good as was wine. Would have like some information about the dance, what the story behind it is and what the meaning is. Dancers gave their heart and soul. Food was basic with no choice, set menu. As someone who likes neither swordfish or... More
