The restaurant is located just by the sea with a great view. They serve many typical dishes such as espetada regional, espada grelhada, bife de atum, lapas, etc... there's so much choice!!! Whether you're looking for a small afternoon snack or a nice lunch/dinner you can be sure to find a dish for all tastes and occasions. I've been there several times, some of them with my whole family, and we ate really well! Good service, food and wine! And the cherry on the cake is actually the bill! I've paid much more in England, France, Luxembourg for just a couple of us than there for a family of 8!!!

Let's not get carried away here. This restaurant serves decent home cooked meals at reasonable prices. Nothing out of the ordinary. Vegetables are a bit overcooked and we shared the dining room with the local drunks at the bar. Service is friendly and helpful . Food is OK and prices correspond the quality.

Very welcoming restaurant, the food is one of the best and the service is great.
In Madeira, this is by far the best, with amazing staff it adds up to being the best restaurant. The prices are very fair
