Food – Menu

At the restaurant, every dish is expertly crafted with care.

We try the swordfish paired with banana, a unique and intriguing combination.

They offer a complimentary glass of rich Madeira wine to enhance the dining experience.
The presentation of the dish is visually stunning.
The aroma of the ocean mingles with the sweet scent of banana, creating a harmonious blend of salty and sweet.

As a treat, we ordered the traditional Poncha, a potent mixture of sugarcane brandy and lemon juice.

It adds a lively spark to the conversation…

After the meal, we took a leisurely stroll along the picturesque Atlantic coast of Madeira. The calm sea provided a peaceful backdrop to our walk.
We lingered for a while, taking in the beauty of the surroundings, grateful for such an enjoyable experience.


From the moment we first walked through the doors, we were greeted with warmth and familiarity as if we were long-time friends.

And with each subsequent visit, the staff’s kindness towards us grew, making us feel like we were part of the family.


The average price is €25 per person, a fair value for the food quality. We recommend the tourist menu or the daily special for cost-efficiency.
