My favorite meal and vibe during my week long stay in Madeira! The owner greeted us and guided us through a select menu and helped us pair drinks. The fish carpaccio was beautifully displayed with edible flowers. The beach side ambiance was incredibly charming, and the caipirinhas were the best I’ve ever had. Would recommend to anyone visiting the island.

Amazing food! Definitely the best we have had yet on this island. Perfect spot to have dinner and then watch the sunset. The owner is very nice and personable. This was my husband and I's honeymoon and the last night we had we came here and this gave us the perfect ending to our trip! Recommend trying the tomahawk steak as pictured! Would highly recommend to anyone wanting an exceptional experience.

I guess this is the coolest spot I entered in Madeira. The vibe is quite something with catchy music. They don’t have a fizic menu because they have just dish of the day and the cocktails hit you with a really cool vibe. The food is very delicious. The waitress was a nice girl from Chile who was very chatty and fun. I do not know what to say more just that I am so sorry that I found them on my last day on the island.

If I could, I would give 6 stars. The waitress is super professional and friendly. Dear Owner, please keep the chef, as the food is simply perfect! Thanks for the experience, we’ll come back soon! 😊
