This restaurant was my favorite in Santana and 2nd favorite on the island. It was my husbands favorite on Madeira. Home cooking in a warm welcoming atmosphere. Don't expect over the top fancy, but the food is wonderful. The osso bucco was the best my husband has had and my fish was very yummy. We ate there twice while in... More

After our Pico Ruivo hike around 2pm we took the TripAdvisor guide to lunch at Cantinho and were pleased with the food. The single storey bungalow that houses the restaurant gives the feel of a family place with the firewood at the fireplace and neatly laid out tables fully decorated with white lilies. It was beautiful. We had the roast... More

Almoçamos aqui quatro pessoas depois de algumas desilusões gastronómicas. Finalmente aqui encontramos um local onde conseguimos desfrutar da verdadeira cozinha serrana e do gosto pela confecção aprimorada de cada prato aliada a uma simpatia e competência difíceis de igualar. Preço médio de 14eur por pessoa. Inigualável pão e pratos em forno de lenha mas decididamente doses fartas e perfeitas. Até... More

Amazing home cooked food, a very friendly atmosphere, a good wine list with some choices that are an absolute steal and reasonable prices make this restaurant one of the highlights of our ten day trip to Madeira. An absolute must if you're visiting the island!

Our starters were a very nice tray of hors d'oeuvre and for main we had a choice of Lamb, Pork or Cod with vegetables... More

We visited Cantinho da Serra directly after a long day of hiking. It was completely empty when we came in, but the warm fire place in the guest room and especially the big fire in the wood oven in the kitchen ( which was visible from out table ) gave us a really warm welcome. For starters we took the... More

It is a simple restaurant but with very good food. We got here with our guide and paid 12 Euro pp for a menu including drinks. Really worth the money. The lamb was really great. Service is not really fantastic but it doesn't spoil the eating at all.

After a long walk we stopped for a meal and what a meal! We both had steak on the stone and it was very good! The bread, vegetables, patatos everything was with great care! Perfect place to stop.
