We recommend this restaurant for its chicken and meats. The specialty is the typical chicken from Guia (a region of Algarve). It is a small chicken, which weighs between 600 and 700 grams. For meats, you can go to the fridge and choose the cut you want.

They work all day, but we recommend that you go at night. Our favorites are shrimp, tuna, and the cheese board. Ask for bread to enjoy the sauces in all the dishes. If you don't want to eat, it is also a good place to have a drink with friends.

Traditional food
Here you must order the popular espetada (it can be made with meat or chicken, but the meat is the traditional one). Accompany it with fried milho, bolo do caco. Nothing is more Madeiran than this. The Bolo de bolacha is one of our favorites for dessert.

Traditional Madeiran and Portuguese gastronomy. The menu is dominated by different meats. It is normal to see many locals at night to eat soup, especially in the colder times. We recommend the caldeirada, lamb, and rabbit. On Sundays, Cozido a Portuguesa is very popular. It is advisable to reserve, especially if you are going to visit them at night or on weekends.

Funchal is the capital of Madeira. This town that dates back some 600 years, since 21st August 1508, owes its name to a sweet-smelling wild herb, the “Foeniculum Vulgare” traditionally known as fennel [funcho], which existed in abundance at the time of its settlement. We are ubicated at the Sé parish. Near the house you can find the Santa Catarina Park, with an area of about 36,000 m2, is located between Avenida do Infante and Avenida Sá Carneiro. With wonderful views over Funchal from its bay to Ponta do Garajau, this park has a large lawn surrounded by flowerbeds of numerous tree, shrub and herbaceous species from all over the world. And also, Quinta Vigia, located near the Parque de Santa Catarina, is today the official residence of the Regional Government of Madeira.

The name of this parish comes from the fact that at the time of the discovery of the island loads of sea lions were sighted at that cove that still retains the same configuration. Currently these animals appear only occasionally on the south coast of the island, with a colony preserved in the Desert Islands. The main economic activities of the parish are fishing, agriculture with emphasis on banana production, trade, services and industry. Câmara de Lobos was the first place where João Gonçalves Zarco, the navigator who discovered the island lived between 1420 and 1424. Besides the parish of Câmara de Lobos, there are another four parishes that belong to this municipality: Curral das Freiras, Estreito de Câmara de Lobos, Jardim da Serra and Quinta Grande.

The Calheta municipality, home to close to 12 thousand people, is located between the southern and western end of the island of Madeira, and its area of approximately 116 Km2 makes it the longest of the Autonomous Region of Madeira.

São Vicente is an area characterized by green nature and abundant forest, modelled by volcanic forces and erosion in its beautiful slopes. One of the most representative symbols of the picturesque town of São Vicente is the small chapel built inside a basalt rock at the mouth of the stream that runs through the town. Their predominant economic activity is based on the primary and tertiary sectors, particularly in agriculture and services, with emphasis on tourism. In the heart of São Vicente one finds the Indigenous Garden, with an area of 2,200 m2, where dozens of species of local flora are represented. The Museum Centre Rota do Cal (Lime Route) situated in this parish, is composed of a pedestrian trip that takes about 30 minutes from the quarries of limestone extraction to the museum. From the Encumeada Belvedere, in Ribeira Brava, we have magnificent views of the mountain range that crosses Madeira and various areas of São Vicente, namely the Laurel Forest. In the parish of São Vicente there is an extensive area of Laurel Forest. The importance of laurel is due to both its representation in terms of diversity of species of flora and fauna and the respective state of conservation. The Laurel Forest was classified as a Natural Heritage Site of UNESCO in 1999. This municipality is divided into the parishes of Bonaventura, Ponta Delgada and São Vicente.

The name of this town is due to a primitive chapel dedicated to Santa 'Ana, which gave rise to the present church. Because the municipality was inaccessible by sea and land, its inhabitants have preserved features that have not suffered outside influences. One example that comes from this isolation is the typical architectural style of their houses with thatched roofs known as “casinhas de Santana” (little houses of Santana). The tourism sector is currently the main economic resource of this county. Here, you can visit the Madeira Theme Park and the Natural Reserve of Rocha do Navio. In June 2011, the municipality of Santana received the distinction of “Biosphere Reserve” by UNESCO recognizing the richness of an ecosystem where it seeks to reconcile biodiversity conservation and sustainable use. This reserve includes a land component, corresponding to the entire surface of the municipality above sea level and still a marine component, which presents a wide variety of natural and unique human, landscape, environmental and cultural values of local, regional, national and international interest. In Santana, one finds Biosphere Routes that span over more than 120 km and allow visitors to enjoy the vast natural heritage, contemplate the landscaped surroundings, enjoy nature, meet the cultural richness of the places and engage with the local population. Here you find the pedestrian trails of Vereda do Pico Ruivo, Levada do Rei and Levada do Caldeirão Verde. Six parishes comprise this county and city: Arco de São Jorge, Faial, Ilha, Santana, São Jorge and São Roque do Faial.

It was here that Gonçalves Zarco and Tristão Vaz Teixeira disembarked, in 1419, when they discovered Madeira. Machico became town on 2nd August 1996 and has about 20,000 inhabitants distributed among its 68 km2. Legend has it that already a century before this discovery, Robert Machim and Anna d'Arfet had found refuge here. The distortion of the name Machim resulted in the name of this city. The bay of Machico invites for a walk amidst the amazing view over sea and land. To the east of the Machico valley is the Pico de Facho Belvedere, from where you can admire the panoramic views from the peaks of the central area of the island up to the Ponta de São Lourenço.
