Nice restaurant with terrace. The place is always full, so make a reservation or come on time. The fish was good, only a bit to dry. Friendly staff.

Great food, specially the fried octopus. However the service was insufficient and clumsy... it took almost one hour to pay...

This restaurant has an amazing view of the sun going down over the ocean, so if you go try to get seated so that you get a good view. Tripadvisor reviews have lately been mixed and unfortunately we have to join the group of people, who found the food to be pretty average. We had limpets for starters and they... More

I had a delicious dinner in couple. We had the cataplana and it was very, very good. The course is huge! we had one for each, but one for two can be enough. We were not right in the best place for the view, because we were a bit inward, but it is really outstanding.

Visited this restaurant with a group, we had a good meal. They specialise in seafood, however they have meat and veggie options available as well.

The view from the patio over the rocks during sunset was the perfect end to our first day in Pico! The house wine was good but we would not have gotten it again if we had gone back. We ordered the cataplana and were disappointed in the flavor. A lot of the fish had lost its flavor from being cooked... More

Beautiful location in front of the sea. We took 2 fish soups but we can't really feel any fishes inside . Then we took Cataplana , a typical dish of vegetables and mixed fishes. We wait for it more than half an hour. It taste great. One bottle of wine and one coffe for 65 euros. Probably not fair for... More

We expected much more from Number One restaurant in Madalena. Food was very average (we tried seafood and stakes) and staff didn't pay enough attention. The place is very nicely located but overall I wouldn't go there again.
