it's a shame that a restaurant in such a nice setting has such horrible service. Yesterday we sat over an hour waiting for the entree. The excuse by the owner is that they were hosting a party. But in between no one came to the table apologizing. Simple inexcusable for a $20+ restaurant. The bread that came to the table was at least 3 days old, they refused to serve water to the outside tables, we were forced to buy a bottle of water. My "espetada" was simply horrible, the fries that came with it were not fresh. As Portuguese born, i was very disappointed and sure will never go back, there are much better places in the area and with better prices.

Used to be a good Portuguese restaurant when they first opened. Their food however, has gotten progressively worse. They serve days old rice and potatoes. I grew up in Portugal and know what Portuguese should taste and look like, and Madeira's food is not it. I also did take out of their chicken, I was very disappointed to find out their chicken was rancid.

Used to be my favorite Portuguese place in the area but went there last night after not going for almost a year and the food had to be sent back since the rice was cold and hard and also the potatoes. The steak was a cheap fatty piece of meat. The waiter's attitude was take it or leave it. Unfortunately, they don't care anymore and I will never be back.
