I never ate worse! On a sterile Terrasse with a great view of the Atlantic the waiter, with his inderwear hanging out of his shorts, tried to convince us that on Madeira you cannot get fresh fish! Therefore the tuna steaks were out of the freezer. The broccoli was black, also out of the freezer. The carrots machine cut in... More

Sadly we had a bad experience with this restaurant. We arived at 21:00 and the restaurant was almost not accepting new clients. To start we had some drinks and a local garlic bread which was served on a plain white napkin. After the starter we received the main. The quality of the food was below standards. We ordered a local... More

I had Espada (white fish) with banana. The flavours were subtle and wonderful with fresh herbs accompanying the fish and pesto over the vegetable side dish. Nice views of the sea. For flavour, this is the place to visit.

Great location and the food was ok when it arrived but the service was incredibly slow. Sat for nearly an hour with no drinks or food. There were a lot of people sat looking annoyed - we were not the only ones waiting!

This is place is a short walk from the beach. We enjoyed the sea food and the service was attentive. Worth a visit if you are in Jardim do Mar

After 10 years of going to Tarmar as a treat when visiting Madeira as it is a little more expensive and has always been good, we were disappointed this year with very poor service from a young man in shorts and t shirt who wasn't very attentive The food was ok but not as good as it used to be....

We had two dinners here. Service was good on one of them, so and so the other. The food was good and well-cooked and a there was decent selection of wines. It is nicely situated with a good view of the sea and also outdoor seating,

This family owned restaurant offers an extensive menu of both Portuguese and American food. The restaurant has a new chef and his presentations and flavourful meals will most definitely lure us back. Thing have gone up a notch since his arrival!
