we went there for our first night in Madeira and returned in the last night before we left.The black bream we ordered was awesome. And the mango mousse was sooooo brilliant that brought us back! The staff are very friendly too. Highly recommended.

Not a large restraunt but excellent food served by lovely smiling attentative staff. The three who deserve a mention are Zita,Maria and Volody who couldn’t do enough to make sure your meal was served with a smile. Small glass of maderia wine served before meal was a nice touch. Went to this restraunt 4 nights out of a weeks stay. Tried different meals with the fish main course of scabbard with a tomato and prawn sauce my favourite. Went on last night of holiday and when they found out I was served with larger maderia wine and a hug and kiss to say goodbye. Highly recommend you visit Dona Nina if staying in the area. Thank you to all the staff

In a walking distance from our hotel Baia Azul we came along the Rua Ponta da Cruz to number of small restaurants, some of them being opened most of the day. We have chosen the Dona Nina because of the offered menus, the ambiance and nice seating outside on the terrace.
It was late afternoon; there were not many people jet here, so we have decided to have an early diner. The lady in service let us to select the table and brought the menu card and a drink.
We have ordered as starter one dish of shrimps with lot of garlic and special bread for both of us. As main course we have taken:
- Octopus with vegetable and potatoes
- Black Scabbard fish with shrimps, vegetable and potatoes
We didn’t need to wait for long; the plates were nicely served and the meal was delicious. The only criticism we had was that the plates were not pre-heated, so the food cooled down very quickly.

Visited Dona Nina's for the first time last March and had a great meal, so returned again this March whilst saying at Pestana Grand.
Maria and Zita were still there and the service, food and atmosphere were great . Lovely to see them again, such a lovely evening.

Very small restaurant behind the pestana grand, the food was delicious but more than that the girls serving were very attentive and never stopped smiling! Made the evening very enjoyable and thoroughly recommend a visit if you are in the area.
