We ate in this restaurant as our tour minibus parked behind and it was raining. Sadly this was a mistake. The restaurant itself looks like a motorway service canteen and our experience of the food matched. We had toasted ham and cheese sandwiches which consisted...More

This restaurant, although it has one of the best locations, has to be the worst in Madeira in terms of service, food and cost. The waiters are sleepy and bored. The staff is really not service minded. The food is awful, flavourless and not fresh....More

This is a great place for a delicious meal at a reasonable price. Generous portions, delicious vegetables and a lively environment. Service very good. Great place for a late evening drink as well. Would recommend the steak in mushroom sauce and chicken.

Two stars for the food and one for the view which is really nice. The food is okay but rather below average. No big deal if you end up here but wouldn't recommend going.

We were fed up with poor meals in the hotels (buffet style and pretty tasteless) so asked our taxi driver for e recommendation. The appearance as you approach could put you off as it just looks like a cafe but at the back it is...More
