The only less than perfect thing about our visit was the spinach that came with my wife's snapper. It appeared to have been flash fried and was too salty for our taste. Everything else from the service to the food was perfect. We spent 2.5 hours there for dinner and enjoyed it thoroughly. The restaurant is not cheap but you... More

Classy place without being too stuffy. Nice atmosphere was accommodated by very good staff. The food was absolutely amazing all the way around. If you are undecided on your meal, listen to the waiter's recommendations they were right on. We've tried several different meals and all of them were full of flavor and never disappointing. The whole experience was amazing.... More

Laid back, comfortable dress, nice atmosphere. The food and drinks are really good. This is a place that you can take a date or for a business dinner. The theme is Spanish and they have good appys (the Madeira Ceviche) and good main courses. There will be some spicy stuff, so ask if you're not a fan. Good cucumber martini's... More

This place has class; the food does not have to be expensive.There is a lobster ensalada reasonably priced... ALSO..one can sit in bar without a reservation.. I do not recommend coming on a Saturday. The service and entire experience is nicer during week.. WE LOVE THE BAR as reservation is hard for us; one can get des sert there.

Located in a beautiful location with views to the resaca, this place has a unique atmosphere. The menu is very diverse and everything would be a good election. Without any question the best fine dining restaurant in Brownsville.

Went here for our wedding anniversary. They have meat and fish, but we are vegetarians. Had delicious mushroom ceviche, a beautiful, filling, and tasty salad, and then creme brûlée for dessert. Great wait staff. Nice atmosphere.

Madeira is one of Brownsville's treasures. It's the only restaurant of it's kind in that city. It's romantic, elegant, beautiful, and relaxing. Wine list is extensive. It's menu offers few items but they are all delicious. I've tried the shrimp with chipotle sauce and they were huge shrimp. I also ordered chateaubriand since I hadn't seen it in a menu... More

You might not expect to find a restaurant like Madeira in Brownsville, TX. I know I did not. However if you stop there, this is a must go place!! The setting is very nice, by a resaca in case you want to sit outside. I chose to sit inside. They are nice art in the walls, and the tables are... More

I had dinner with some business colleagues at the Madeira and had an extremely good experience. The atmosphere was a little upscale without being stuffy- very comfortable. The staff was attentive and helpful. The food was outstanding. The menu has something for everyone's tastes with a selection of seafood as well as some very nice looking steak/chop options. Halibut ceviche... More

Brownsville might not be a place you visit often and only for business. Because of its demographic there are not a lot of upscale restaurants. Madeira is one of them and the food is great with view on a little lake. The atmosphere is relaxed and decorated a little modern. Their staff is friendly and helpful. The food is great... More
