We went here for lunch while driving around Maderira and the food was spectacular - the best Espetada we've ever had. The meat was perfectly cooked and very tender. Salad, chips and fried corn the perfect accompaniment. Staff were friendly and the restaurant had a very welcoming atmosphere. If you go to Madeira and like steak skewers this place is a must!

We went there for a dinner, two skewers of espetada, a large chips and a small salad was ordered. It was absolutely enough for 3 adults and a child, the meat was juicy and tasty, the chips was crispy with some garlic on it. The prices are far below the ones in Funchal, a skewer with 8 pieces costs 11 eur, a large chips 5.5 eur. All in all it was a great food for a reasonable price.

I’ve been coming to this restaurant every year now since I have discovered it. And this is by far the best place to eat traditional Portuguese food, espetada (meat on a skewer). The food is accompanied with many things such as rice, chips, salad, traditional garlic flat bread and fried maze also known as milho which is a traditional Portuguese dish.
The service is fantastic and very quick. Highly recommend this restaurant whether it’s for lunch/ dinner with family or friends or even couples.
The meat is cooked to perfection and they cater to your needs fully.

Can’t fault this place at all!

Excellent restaurant with very reasonable prices. Family visit we went here for the meat skewers and were not disappointed. Standard espetada serves 2 people 11 EUR. Service was friendly and efficient. If ordering side dishes one large chips will serve four people. Waiter kindly pointed this out. As with most Portuguese restaurants a great wine selection and also deserts. Thoroughly recommend. If driving ample parking on top of rest.but very steep access. If you want fish go to another restaurant since they only do cod but great for a change from fish.

We will return even though only here for 1 week.

Ordered the beef skewer which comes with 8 pieces so easily feeds two, and also a small side dish is suitable for two. Highly recommend the beef, was by far the best meal of my holiday. Friendly staff and good service as well as reasonably cheap prices. Would definitely recommend!
