The proprietor was lovely and sincere. We felt cared for and important to him as customers. The food was all cooked fresh so it had the quality of a good restaurant with the benefits of local home cooking. Some may be put off by the appearance as they also serve breakfast and lunch so essentially are a snack bar during the day. Don’t let this deter you...you won’t be disappointed if you go for an evening meal.

Recanto is very near our apartment and, as we didn’t feel like walking far, it was ideal. The owner provided excellent service, always trying to answer our questions! We had grilled prawns with garlic bread, grilled chicken with really good home made chips, and my husband had steak which he enjoyed. Chose a couple of glasses of house red which was absolutely fine. We even squeezed in a shared apple pie, which to be honest was a step too far! We enjoyed our meal very much and it was incredible value. Had to mark down on ambience as apart from one other table, the restaurant was empty. A real shame as it’s well worth a visit.

Lovely Stroganoff for us both with rice and excellent vegetables. Sweets of chocolate mousse and Apple pie were both delicious and big portions.
Our second visit and hope to return. Set back off main road so quiet but worth a visit.

Best food, friendly relaxed service and great value.
Only a short walk off the main road and away from all the busy traffic. Traditional Madeiran menu. Do try it !

Staff were very welcoming, attentive and genuine. We didn’t expect much from the food as the restaurant appears as more of a snack bar/quick stop. Don’t be fooled! The sit-down food was amazing, I had the traditional scabbard fish with banana - highly recommend. The desserts were also very tasty (apple pie and chocolate mousse). Prices are already decent so the final bill with discount was spectacular given our experience. We might come back later in our trip :)

A lovely friendly welcome. The owner was polite and attentive. The food was home cooking taken to another level. The restaurant was spotlessly clean with a casual, laid back atmosphere. We are here again for the second night running!

Located in the middle of a residential area, it’s a small, simple cafe-style restaurant. The menu is traditional and the food is good quality and excellent value. It seems to be run by a husband and wife team who work hard to provide a good level of service. If you want an inexpensive, no-fuss lunch or dinner it’s a good choice.

The food was excellent, very well presented and superb value for money. House wine at 2 euros a glass was an added bonus and we were offered a complimentary Madeira at the end. What more could you ask for?

Excellent service though one service man (the owner) might be not enough to be fast as desired.
The owner is a lovely, patient, polite person.
This is not a michelin restaurant but it is small decent clean and tasty restaurant which gives full money return.

We had a very nice meal, which extremely good value for money. Food was tasty (for me, the fish) and came in good quantity. Roasted banana as a side was an original surprise. Waiter was very helpful and advised us about our choices. He didn't want us to spent money on liquors because he wanted to offer some at the end of the meal! All that for less than 30 euros for 2. Amazing
