Chico`s is a local restaurant with a good and varied menu including some interesting traditional Madeiran food. The welcome is very friendly and the english of the staff excellent. May need to book if visiting at the weekend

I really enjoyed the food and delicious house wine. The chef made an impressive hot sauce, and their compliment dessert - balls made with dates, coconut, and crispy rice was very delicious! Thank you for a lovely service. Will definitely come back.

We stopped here for lunch on a cruise around the west coast and it was a really lovely place. The staff were very warm and the food was excellent. I especially liked that they gave you little extras throughout the meal (including some lovely nibbles before we got our main meals and some amazing homemade sweets with our coffees). A... More

The food was ok, but at the same time also not very exciting. Service was also not a highlight. For us a one time visit as we have been to many places in the area that we personelly liked more.
