My friends I decided to try this place because we wanted to try some traditional Portuguese food. We had no idea what to expect and ordered two fish dishes (Espada) which both came with 2 sides each, and another friend ordered one skewer of the grilled beef.

For a fun evening of folk dancing and singing, coupled with decent food and more booze than you should consume, this is the place. The servers were friendly and attentive. The restaurant seats about three hundred. At €30/person, transport from your hotel included, it's well worth it.

We booked this evening through Madeira Island Tours. At 30 Euros each it was fine if the concept had been thought through. We were picked up promptly and taken to the venue 10 minutes outside of Funchal Centre. Unfortunately, it was one of their quiet nights so totally lacked atmosphere and was like sitting in an empty school hall with... More

First you will enjoy plenty of food such as meat(espetada), salads, typical sides wine, soft drinks and nice dessert and during the dinner you will enjoy the unforgettable typical dancing of Portugal-Madeira (Centro cultural San Antonio). You will get involved in typical dancing!! Highly recommended.
