Prazeres Rurais always have food that feels like it was home-cooked. There is a slight drop in some ingredients quality (some meats in the cozido), but overall still good. The service is friendly and good price/ quality.Ecological remark: doesn't make sense to only have plastic small bottles of water. In a restaurant there is no reason to not use glass bottles.

Restaurante Sol E Mar

Reviewed By traveler2985

Restaurant was completely empty and it took us 15 minutes to get served at which point or entree options are limited because they waited so long to serve us and the kitchen was closing. Also, they have a "special" tourist menu that doubles the price of all entrees - isn't that cute!? Not a fan of that practice, won't be back. We are tourists but we're quiet and like local places; these people weren't as friendly as you'd normally encounter in Madeira.

Stopped here on the way towards Porto Moniz from seeing visiting the lighthouse. We both had the scabbard fish - one with banana, the other with onions. Very tasty! We had a nice relaxing spot in the sun. There are also tables under cover and inside. A great find and would recommend to anyone.

Excellence is just one word to describe this lovely cosy family traditional restaurant literally out on the woods!The service was well considerate especially once they knew I was a non speaker of thier native language.I wanted traditional food I got traditional food Cabbage soup with garlic butter and breadFried CalamariAnd some Bacalhau (Portuguese pronunciation: [bɐkɐˈʎaw]) is the Portuguese word for cod and—in a culinary context—dried and salted cod. Fresh (unsalted) cod is referred to as bacalhau fresco (fresh cod).Side dishes of potatoes , salad, rice and so much more including a family cake for dessert - walnut and honey cake with banana and cream on side. - delishService was amazing and what a fantastic way of ending a wonderful adventure Obrigada!

O Farol

Reviewed By RMK_10

We took fish knowing safe for good tasting food but were painfully wrong & on this occasion really disappointed.Food was not tasty seemed to be frozen food cooked with chips that was flaking away as you ate.The vegetables had not even been fresh which is rare for Madeira. Maybe we were unlucky timing wise but normally we compliment rather that than criticise. But on this occasion we had to leave lot of food on the plate & paid the bill & left.Hygiene level at the property did not seem to be very good either with no hand cleaning liquids prior to a meal.It's like a remote place & did not get enough tourists perhaps but we were hungry & stopped. Chef needs probably more training/quality, if not quality of products offered in menu needs reviewing.Food was not cheap & not certainly value for money so avoid.

We went experimenting with the feedback being so high,we arrived the employee was friendly although only speak portuguese.We ordered "minced meat" and limpets.whe waited for a long time 45 m ok whe wre not in a rush but then insted of meat he brought octopus i found it funny but i don't like octopus! I went to talk to the cook because she speaks fluent English and when I got to what they call the kitchen I was terrified it was such a tiny space where meat was store whit fish and juice and fruits it must have been about 45 degrees where the cook's sweat fell straight into the food.I just left the place feeling sick.

Casa de Cha O Fio

Tea House with amazing views over the ocean.

Reviewed By MaureenC33

We visit this beautiful spot whenever we visit Madeira if possible.The reason is the cafe or should I say Tea House is timeless and in a very peaceful, beautiful part of the island.After a walk nearby it’s good to stop here for lunch or afternoon cake and continue admiring the views. The lovely staff are really friendly and go out of there way or help you. Cakes are always tasty and moist. You can have a local soup or sandwiches, toasties and main courses which are a variation on the Local fish with salad and vegetables that are so tasty in this part of Madeira. I think there are omelettes also.Hope to visit again in the future and wish the owners well.

We were here in sept 19. Although the restaurant markets it self as a bbq-restaurant, it serves excellent vegan (!) dishes that deserves appreciation and a lot attention, I had the best vegan morroccan stew I have ever tried, while my company was served juicy meats freshly grilled. All in all a hidden jewel for meat eaters and plant eaters alike! Hot tip: try the vegan cappucino, its sooo good!

Reviewed By SONeill333

We found this restaurant whilst taking a drive around the east coast. Some of the locals had recommended it aswell as seeing good reviews on TripAdvisor. We asked to be seated outside as it was coming near sunset time. Staff were very friendly and helped me choose a beautiful rose wine called Atlantis. We had garlic bread to start and the steak for our main. The sirloin steak was good and loved the veg. The chips were like homemade chips we have ar home in Ireland:) The waiter always made sure my wine glass was topped up. To top it all off we watched the sunset. It was amazing. If we are ever back in Maderia we would definitely come back.
