The beef was some of the best we've had in Funchal, the fish was some of the worst. Lose the ridiculously huge espetada skewers, lose the over-boiled vegetables and this place would be okay.

Thank you for your comment. Sory for the huge espetada, this portion is traditional in Madeira. Next time just mention that you like a smaller one and we will take care of your wishes. The customer has always the last word.

Description
Ca te Espero is a typical restaurant with a long tradition. It has been known for its quality and for its cosy and homy atmosphere, since 1976.Our food quality is the result of the use of fresh ingredients in the preparation and cooking of our traditional recipes. We point out Bife de Atum com Milho Frito (Tuna fish Steak with fried Maize), Filete de Espada com Banana (Fried Scabbard fish with Banana), Pepper Steak and Pork Fillet Ca te Espero Style.We will be very pleased to welcome you!
