After looking into a few of the restaurants in the sea side, we've checked TripAdvisor and this one was clearly a winner, judging by the reviews. It's a bit further away from the sea side, but it has free parking and the looks of a typical portuguese Tavern. We had a warm welcome by the host. There is no daily dish. All dishes are prepared are the moment. The atmosphere is very cozy, the decoration is very authentic from the region, the toilets were clean. They have a specialty called Vicentina, which is based in the famous dish Francesinha original from Porto region. I had Swordfish with banana and passion fruit sauce. It was the first time trying the swordfish and I absolutely loved it. The food looked and tasted very very good! The dessert although it looked very good, I wouldn't go for it twice. Overall this is a very nice place with tasty food! I absolutely recommend it!

Very nice place. It's cosy, helpful and friendly staff, and mainly the food was spectacular. Everything freshly made and cooked to perfection. Cherry on the top: very reasonable price.

Good place to have lunch. It is the type of place you might from the looks pass, but you will not be disappointed with the food and fair prices.

Very tasty meal with nice wine. Maybe not on the best location to be found on Madeira, but cosy inside. The chorizo 'flambée' with white rum, as a starter, and the swordfish, as the main course, were lovely. Very friendly service !

I visit Madeira regularly as I own a property in Ponta Delgada and visit the nearest provincial town of Sao Vicente regularly. I like to call into this Taberna as it is directly opposite the bus stop and handy to wait for the infrequent bus back home.
The restaurant is cosy and in the traditional style,staff are friendly,speak good English and enjoy a banter.
The food is excellent and well presented with a range to suit all tastes,meat,fish or egg dishes are available at a reasonable cost.
Their own Poncha is superb and worth a try at a fraction of the cost of some establishments serving tourists.
Also close to town centre and sea front with opportunity to catch the bus East to Ponta Delgada and Arco Sao Jorge or west to Seixel and the rock pools of Porto Moniz
