Set in the Porto Mare Hotel, the Med serves excellent food under the watchful eye of the attentive and friendly maitre'd. We ate there on the Wednesday, when the normal a la carte menu is supplemented by specials featuring Madeiran meat, and the place was deservedly full. We so enjoyed the meal that we returned for the Friday night dinner... More

The restaurant manager is a perfect host. The staff are attentive and the food is excellent and good value. If you like red meat then go for the 'Meat Lovers' evening which takes place once a week and provides some of the rare local produce.

We had a lovely meal and the Maître d was helpful and friendly. But in the locality and downtown there are far better places to eat. Med is situated in a hotel and lacks the atmosphere of a restaurant on a street. The quality of the food was good for my main course but the fruit salad for desert included... More

This was the best meal of our 10 day holiday and we'd had some very good meals out. The prawn starter was fabulous, our chicken dish, we both said was tasty, moist and we really enjoyed it. We had different puddings, I had the chocolate temptation which was fabulous.The staff were very attentive without being obtrusive always there to check... More

The Med Restaurant is in the lovely Porto Mare Hotel and we enjoyed meals here on our recent stay. We always chose the fish dishes- our favourites being the salmon served with asparagus, green beans and potatoes and sea bass in a tasty clam sauce. Crem brûlée was so delicious we chose it every time. Service was friendly and efficient.😎😊🍷🍷

The restaurant is within the hotel we were staying in, the Porto Mare, so it was an easy decision to have dinner here twice. We were very pleased with the food, the presentation, the service, wine list and menu. Excellent!

The food here was okay but not worth the money at all. It was the most expensive meal we've had so far during this trip to Madeira and it was the least enjoyable. The flavours in the scallop dish worked well, but they were almost cold. We had ordered the food and asked for a couple of minutes to decide... More

We booked through Tripadviser and we weren't disappointed. the food was great and the service was wonderful. the only minus was that it took 15 minutes before I got the attention of a member of staff to ask for the bill.

We had a wonderful time here. The restaurant was busy so had a lovely atmosphere. We took up the offer of "outside" seating which turned out to be a kind of small conservatory with ceiling heaters so no worries in inclement weather. We were poured a sparkling wine each the minute we were seated which was a lovely start to... More
