This restaurant never disappoints with its lovingly and freshly cooked and tasty food. Even the chips are tasty, especially dipped in the piri peri sauce - Nando's eat your heart out. Expect a warm Madeiran welcome and wonderful homemade cuisine.

We've been to OPicado many times now as a couple, with friends and with family. It has always been fantastic! The food is fresh and tasty, the house wine is perfect and affordable, the staff are extremely thoughtful and the atmosphere and decor take you straight to Portugal!! Try the meat skewers and you will come back for sure!!! This... More

We booked well in advance for this Christmas Day lunch. We were surprised to see that the restaurant was not fully booked but that did not distract from our enjoyment of the meal which was served by one of the younger members of the family who together run this bistro establishment. The normal food menu is Portuguese with an especially... More

Had a lovely evening out with 25 friends, food was lovely and plentiful. Two of our party had dropped out and the owners of this in the morning but they still charged us full price for the non attendees....NOT ON......service charge added to our bill at 20%....way too much, 10% would have been a standard amount. Service was okay but... More

The staff are always very friendly here, and the portion sizes are generous, we try to visit here every couple of months. It has a very homely, traditional feel which is great. My only criticism would be that food can sometimes take a while to arrive even when it's not that busy, otherwise very hard to fault.

We booked this restaurant for a Saturday evening. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The restaurant has a lovely warm feeling and it's a bit of a tardis, as you can dine outdoors whilst being indoors. You will need to remember that you are still in Westcliff and haven't been transported to an old Portuguese village. The food, service... More
