I had been here a couple of years back, when visiting my original home city of New Bedford. I had another gift certificate, so I figured that I would give them another try, as I liked it before (see previous review). Patrick was an excellent server and the food was excellent. The prices were so good, that I had to... More

My and wife and two friends dined at the Madeira Cafe in November and had a very nice dining experience. The waitress was very friendly, efficient and accomodating. The food was very good, May I recommend the surf and turf (steak tips and baked stuffed shrimp). The steak comes on a skewer and the marinade is excellent. The prices are... More

I had a gift certificate for this place, so I gave it a visit. They close before 9pm, but the owner/manager Caroline said I had time when I called them. I arrived soon after, and was invited to sit at the bar. The place was very pleasant, and the seafood was the best I have eaten in New Bedford on... More

Been here two times now, and both times the food has been amazing! Menu was full of choices I felt I could eat being a rather picky person. I settled on the Chicken alatajano, which had great flavor, and the portion size was even better. The gravy was delicious, and the potatoes in the dish were perfect. The second time... More

We visited Madeira Cafe on a recent Saturday night with a large group. Although the restaurant's policy is to serve a fixed family style menu for parties over 20 the owner allowed us to order from the menu if our count reached a bit over the limit ( which, ultimately, it did not). Madeira Cafe's menu is quite extensive and... More

I was taken here on my first offocial date and could not have been happier anywhere else. Service is a 100% top job. Food was great as always. I have been to this restaurant many times and never have had a bad experience. Weither you sit at the bar or the dinning room you will never walk away hungry or... More

Authentic Portugese food, Don't let the location or appearance scare you off. It has a Sports Bar/resturant set up, yet very freindly/ quiet family resturant atmosphere. Service is excellent. The seafood stew is awesome, The pork -carne with potatos is very addictive, the sauce..wow.

Nice selection of seafood and Portuguese food. I don't eat meat so the menu is somewhat limited for me. The service was tremendous, a very family type atmosphere on the restaurant side. I would imagine that later on the bar side would distract from that but definitely something for everyone.

You can sit at the bar or you can sit in the dining area, that has little division from the bar so it may get a bit loud. The owner is very pleasant. Food is fantastic with fresh seafood from the waterfront. They also specialize in Portugese Cusine. Very clean.
