If you are a big fan of sea food, this your place! Fresh made food, very tasteful and friendly person, that is what you will find there and the price is more than reasonable. Try 'Mixed Fish', 'Cherne' and 'Lapas' dishes, you will not regret...More

Food was excellent, big portions. One of the best places to visit in Machico for dinner or just for cup of coffee.

The staff were friendly and attentive. We ordered veggie dish, which was recommended by the staff. The wait was about an hour for our food but the wait was worth it... The food was delicious.

We were with four people, each with a different dish, and we each rated it excellent. Service was a bit slow, but who cares with such a beautiful view from the restaurant. It was definitely a highlight of our stay in Madeira.
