Would absolutely recommend O Dragoeiro. Just returned from a nice 3 course meal. Decided to go for the "special menu" for EUR 27 per person. Starter: avocado and prawn (avocado was delicious, prawns slightly tough) Main: salmon with veg (absolutely delicious. Fish was cooked to perfection, and the vegetables were fantastic - not too hard and not too soft). Dessert:... More

Found this place by chance when wandering as not far off the main Estrada Monumental. Greeted at front with a glass of Madeira and a very friendly gentleman. Busy place, nice ambience. Staff friendly and helpful. Ordered espada - local fish - Madeira style, and sea bass fillet. Both served with boiled potatoes and vegetables. Can have alternative if you... More

Very atmospheric in beautiful garden setting. Food was very good and the Tourist Menu excellent value for money. We were welcomed by Mr Smith at the entrance who gave us a complimentary glass of Madeira Wine which was a lovely touch. Definitely a place to visit and we will certainly be returning on our next visit to Madeira.

Yesterday, we have witnessed not that very pleasant experience at this high rated restaurant. We are having holidays in Madeira, we will be staying here for two weeks. After dinner at our hotel, we decided to walk around, search for nice places where we can come for dinner or launch. We stopped at the entrance to read a menu, which... More

We've been to O Dragoeiro almost every single night during our stay simply because this is our favourite restaurant on the island, maybe in the world. The food is delicious, the service excellent and the atmosphere is really, really good. We'll be back again for sure!

Really nice service, food and good prices. We had our 3year old along, she was welcome. We ordered the tourist menu actually really affordable, compared to the overpriced menus everywhere else. Really nice espetada, beef kebab, pudding and a good wine. A nice meal in a really beautiful garden with nice staff.

We were attracted by the beautiful plants and lovely serviette displays on the tables. It was chilly so we ate inside. Be aware if you've not been to Madeira a lot of garlic is used and we ordered chicken kebabs - not quite like the Greek variety. They used all the cuts except the breast - which meant the bones...

Came back after a series of wonderful visits 5 years ago and we were not disappointed. Beautiful and relaxing setting in the garden and the Chateaubriand was wonderful. Service was excellent too.

We passed this restaurant one morning and the menu and garden looked inviting, so we went that evening and enjoyed the Tourist Menu with a bottle of house white wine for the two of us. My avocado to start, scabbard fish with banana and caramel pudding was lovely and tasty. Madeira wine offered upon entry and a free drink at... More
