    Every visit to Madeira results in at least one visit to Goya. It is and always has been one of the best restaurants on the Island. Once again it did not dissapoint. A wonderful team will present perfect food at a perfect pace in a quality environment. No doubt the road outside is noisier than years gone by, but that is just commentary and takes nothing away from the experience. Well done Goya, you have managed to maintain superb quality from the day you first opened and that requires commitment and discipline which can easily diminish through time.

    My wife and I were belatedly celebrating our 45th wedding anniversary and the Diva evening at the Goya looked good. My wife enjoyed the music and was singing along. The food we had was very good but it was clear the waiting staff were very rushed. I had made the point that I was dairy free (i know those with allergies and intolerances shouldn't be allowed out), so was disappointed when cheese arrived topping my first course. It was easy to detect and remove. Apparently our main course was supposed to come with veg, but they never arrived. We tried to catch the attention of the staff but unsuccessfully and difficult with cabaret going on. Our bill was reduced but unfortunately our experience was spoilt. It was clear many others did enjoy their meal

    Thursday night is entertainment night so we had a pianist and singer for 1.5 hrs encouraging us to join in whilst they performed. The food was excellent and service good although maybe a little slow at the beginning but well worth waiting for. Saturday nights they have a violinist playing. Great ambiance all round ????

    We have eaten here several times and have always enjoyed the experience. However, our meal was spoiled by the long wait ( over an hour) before our starters were provided. I know the restaurant was very busy as there was live entertainment provided on Thursday evening which was very good, but we felt there was an insufficient number of wait staff to serve all the customers. The manager seemed to be aware of the issue and did provide some compensation but the long wait for food definitely took the edge off our dining experience. That said, we will probably eat here again as the food is excellent. We will just book an earlier time and by the food arrives we will be hungry.????

    Lovely food and service. Atmosphere let down by crazily busy road adjacent to the exterior dining area.

    The food was beyond amazing! Really loved the foie gras duo and my lamb shank. My partner had a tuna carpaccio and pork tenderloin, which he enjoyed too. Service was good. We had a bickering old couple in the room that were cursing at each other and that ruined the otherwise amazing night. Wish they would have said something to them.

    Goya was a very pleasant experience overall. The four stars for ambience is not an indictment of Goya alone, all of the restaurants along this particular stretch of road suffer from the same issue, noisy motorbikes, buses, and cars making the al fresco option less than appealing. I would recommend dining indoors. The four star rating for food was due to a disappointing octopus risotto. The minimal portion of octopus in the risotto made the dish lack any taste of seafood and the rice itself was over cooked and under seasoned, it had the consistency of a rice pudding dessert rather than a risotto. The risotto could be improved from a four to a five with the use of a more generous portion of octopus cut into larger pieces rather than what appeared like shavings. The use of fish based stock in the cooking process, with either a mollusc or crustacean base, would really enhance the dish, The five stars for service is well deserved and earned as the manner with which the very friendly staff dealt with it is a testament to their desire to take on board constructive criticism and to respond accordingly. The offer of an alternative main course was made without hesitation and it was delivered promptly and cooked to perfection, with minimal fuss and delay to the family dining experience. Recommended.
