    Excellent quality good food and friendly attentive service.. Our party of 3 had three different fish dishes and all were superb . The recommended Amnesia red wine from Alentago totally complemented the food and was very reasonably priced.. A really enjoyable evening and can thoroughly recommend Real Canoa.

    Very good Espada with banana, but I am not sure why they use ketchup to style the plate with some dots as if it was a posh place :) ketchup should never be used!

    So lovely to have a complimentary welcome madeira wine and liqueurs to finish - which happened on both of our visits. My squid & seafood on a skewer was divine Sublime passionfruit mouse for pudding Highly recommended

    Lovely food, particularly enjoyed steak on the stone. Welcoming staff & owner who personally spoke to each table. Lovely touch of welcome drink & local liquor at the end of the meal. We were offered a courtesy bus back but chose to walk. Will definitely return next holiday.

    A great welcome with a glass of Madeira. Fantastic food - real haute cuisine. Excellent Fish soup and limpets to start. Scabbard fish wrapped round salmon and a delicious fish rice dish. Big portions, beautifully presented - we were so full but managed two delicious deserts: passion fruit mousse and fresh mango. A really special evening- we will be back

    An absolutely gorgeous meal with perfect service, attentive and friendly but not overbearing. Shared the fish of the day- sea bass. Wonderful flavour with perfect crispy skin. Yum yum

    This restaurant gets consistently good reviews for a reason. Although it’s a bit out of the way if you are staying near the town centre, the food is good and the hospitality is outstanding. Bruno and his team make real effort to make guests feel welcome and will happily chat as much as you’d like. It makes for a friendly and lively evening even during these quiet times. Very good value too, especially with the Fork promotion.

    The food was excellent as was the service and I will definitely return again. I was disappointed that the prices charged were not the same as those given on the internet especially the wine. I know times are hard for everyone but one needs to have honesty.
