Menu – Food

The grilled limpets (10 euros) were a true delicacy, with a tender texture and a subtle yet flavorful taste.

The Smoked Salmon Involtini with shrimp (13 euros) was equally impressive.

We couldn’t wait to try the main course – the Madeirense Tuna Steak (17 euros).

The chef had put great care and effort into creating this masterpiece, which was cooked to perfection and served with accompaniments.

Paella (for two people: 45 euros) is a popular dish at the restaurant, but we didn’t get a chance to try it on this trip.

However, the rave reviews from our fellow diners have convinced us to make it a must-try on our next visit.

The menu also boasts a variety of regional kebabs, vegetarian options, and an extensive wine selection.

The espetada truly captured the essence of the region.

To finish, we indulged in a classic Madeira cake and a scoop of creamy ice cream. We were treated to a complimentary glass of Madeira wine.


Our dining experience at the restaurant was well worth the average price of 37 euros per person. It is no surprise that the restaurant has received a recommendation from the prestigious Michelin guide.
