Lovely spot, brilliant views. Service was quick but a bit tentative. The food was fine my husband in particular enjoyed his mildly curried scabbard. Good VFM, generally much better than the really expensive harbour side café's

Having walked from Funchal to Camara de Lobos we avoided the harbour-side eateries and continued our walk only to get caught out by unexpected rain. Our walk turned into a run into this restaurant over-looking the sea and enjoying dramatic views towards Cabo Girao sea-cliffs. Our leisurely 3-course lunch included well cooked fish and a choice of drinks for 14.50... More

We had our worst meal in years here, how can they expect to stay open serving dried-out over-cooked meat to Trip Advisers?

We popped into Camara De Lobos to see if we could find this restaurant as we'd eaten there 7-8 years before. The staff are very welcoming and the restaurant offers a fine view of the sea and Cabo Girao above. We had time for a quick snack and ordered some squid "Salteados" and peixe mixte. Both were very good, with... More

We had the best fish-lunch. A well prepared Dorade and a seafood skewer. Very friendly staff and the restaurant is at a great spot just off the crowded plaza.

We went for lunch looking for a nice place and we had to wait more than 45 minutes with just a bottle of wine in the table. This is not aceptable in my opinión, even when we ordered a salad as a starter that could be done in 5 minutes. Even the bread came late and it was not too... More

I liked this restaurant for the views over Praia do Vigario and enjoyed a drink there after admiring the SAO SEBASTIAO church and a nice swim in the ocean in front of the restaurant.Since the beach is very rocky it might be a good idea for the restaurant to rent out beach-chairs for a more comfortable beach experience.

We wanted to try traditional black scabbard fish in the little fishing port of Camara De Lobos and Praia do Vigario had been recommended by a local barman. We walked along the coast from our hotel in Funchal and followed the directions given to us, behind the church and down the steps near the beach, not somewhere we would have... More
