First time in this place and was really a nice arriving by boat, jump in water, refresh and seat for a nice lunch!
We had nice tuna grilled and service was ok fora beach restaurant.
Anyone staying in Madeira should go here as is a good value for money and is a place you will find locals!

Great location - a magical place. A mix of fresh garden vegetables salad to die for.
Amazing pitanga cheesecake.

You need to take a cable car down to get to it at 10 euros each, but it's worth it when you get to the bottom.
You walk through allotment style gardens, with grape vines over head, and banana and passion fruit plants all along the edging. Then you come out to the sea, and we could see the fisherman and people just enjoying the rocky beach. Once we where at the restaurant we sat out next to the sea and the waiter brought us a choice of fresh fish on a plate to choose from.
They grilled one of them up for us, and brought out a side of roasted veg, side salad and potatoes. My husband doesn't eat fish but had one of there homemade burgers which he assures me was brilliant. What tipped it to 5 stars for me was the price! It was so reasonable! The fresh fish all the sides, our drinks and my husbands meal came in at €28! Totally worth a visit.

If you go to Madeira go to lunch in this unique place. For first impression you must take a cable car for around 400 mts to go down to the " Fajã". There you get an unspoiled place where you can have good products from the sea really fresh. Good service. Don't loose!!

Affordable and fantastic food! Amazing views! Friendly staff. A very picturesque view and fantastic garden walk to get to the restaurant. Great view and you feel like you're on a deserted island. Toilets, changing rooms and showers so you can go for a dip in the sea afterwards. €26 for 2 fish mains and 2 beers. Really great food. €10 return trip on the cable car and under 12 go free
