The food was eatable, but the french fries weren’t crispy at all and the potatoes were cold. There was rain coming trough the ceiling. There was no toilet paper at the toilet. The stuff wasn’t that friendly. The only good thing was the view.

Having read the most recent reviews for this restaurant and having had it recommended we were really looking forward to a great Saturday night out. What a shock, It was truly the worst meal we have had anywhere in Madeira.
The salad in the starter was limp and had seen better days. The vegetables had no colour left in them. The steak was as tough as old boots and the goat stew was the same.
Was the chef off for the night? I hope so but wouldn't want to risk trying it again.
On the upside the wine was ok.

This restaurant is my favourite in Calheta. We ate here twice and both meals were excellent and the portion sizes ample. I would recommend the fish casserole for two, the fresh fish and the rabbit stew. My wife also enjoyed the home-made ice cream. The restaurant serves the best local produce in a traditional Madeira style. The wine we selected was very good. The views are wonderful, but we dined rather late and it was getting dark.

Had mixed fish platter for two (€38).
Excellent food. Expect there is a great view as well but was raining heavily when we were there!
