Pizza restaurant
👍👍 A long overdue review. We first discovered Ciao Pizza in March 2023 when they had just opened, and months later, I can say it's still the BEST pizza on the island! Ricardo (the chef owner) makes it himself. The pizza is authentic, delicious, light, and just yummy. The staff is friendly and the servi...

Restaurante Alta Vista image
Restaurante Alta Vista
👍👍 Super friendly service, super tasty food - we had the scabard and banana -, excellent both beer and drink. And not the least the freshly made garlic bread. And also noteworthy is the local Madeira. Ending with the fantastic view, giving the restaurant its name.

Fala Fala Vege Food
Vegetarian restaurant
👍👍 Delicious falafel wrap with mango. Fries were okay - they could have been a little crispier and less greasy. The freshly squeezed apple-carrot-ginger juice was excellent and the price was good. The outside area is very cosy, and the food was served quickly.

Modern European restaurant
👍👍 We managed to get a nice table before the rush without booking and and the food came out promptly (which we valued). Overall value for money was great (unbelievable if used to London pricing!), some new cuisines were fantastic to try and overall it was delicious and the service was excellent. The ba...

Bela 5 Snack Bar
👍👍 Loved it. The food is simple, very fresh and reasonably priced. Four of us had a really good lunch with drinks for 50euro. The waiter was kind and funny and led us through the menu item-by-item in excellent English. Definitely recommend, only small downside is that there is no outdoor seating.

Eight drafts and lots of bottles. All great examples of the Portuguese craft beer scene. Will be back for more later! Edit: been b...

Tradicional Restaurant
Portuguese restaurant
👍👍 Amazing food, very attentive service and a charming chef. Make sure to leave some room for the mind-blowing desert (which is hard, given the high quality and massive portion size of the main dishes) Best restaurant we have been to all week.

👍👍 We came in for an early dinner (6pm) and were seated immediately! The food here is really quite lovely - we tried the palak paneer, dal tadka, channa masala, garlic naan, tandoori roti and basmati rice. The flavour was delicious - the dal tadka and channa masala especially. The papak paneer and dal...

Lido’s Tavern - A Poncha do Lido
👍👍 Oh my goodness, what a joy it was to stumble on this tiny kiosk of a restaurant near my hotel. Exceptional poncha made with freshly squeezed citrus right in front of you. The best garlicy bolo do caco and ham and cheese prego (also delightfully garlicy) I had on my trip as well. And SO AFFORDABLE...
