One of the best-known restaurants in Estreito de Câmara de Lobos. It opened in 1966 as a tavern serving petiscos (tapas) and drinks. It has undergone changes over the years, but the management has remained in the same family as the founder. It is now a well-presented restaurant with wooden tables and a beautiful counter in the centre, decorated with firewood. Espetada de carne (meat kebab) is the most-requested dish, of course, accompanied with milho frito, batata frita e salada (fried corn - which is popular on Madeira, chips and salad). Here you can still ask for the meat to come on a laurel skewer. They recommend washing it down with the house sangria.
There are some mandatory delicacies when traveling to Madeira. Bolo do caco spread with butter or limpets are some of them, and great as starters. But when it comes to main courses, you won't find anything as famous as the typical Madeira skewers (sorry to all our vegetarian and vegan friends). The typical Madeiran skewer is made with tender beef, bay leaf, salt and garlic, on a laurel stick. Times have changed and now it is usually served on a metal skewer. But don't worry because the flavor and juices were kept, even more enhanced with the butter put on the skewer already on the table, which runs down the squares of meat. If in the past they were only served at popular Madeiran festivals, now there are restaurants that serve very good skewers. It should always be served with fried corn, french fries, salad and bolo do caco with garlic butter. Here are six places where eating skewers in Madeira is still as it used to be.
