We dined here multiple times during our month stay in Garajau. The food was always fresh and seasoned perfectly, never overly salty as we found in other restaurants. Garlic bread was light, crispy and tasty, not traditional bolo de cacao style. Baby chicken was always grilled perfectly, tender and seasoned well. Mixed salad and chips were served fresh and plentiful. We also tried and enjoyed the grilled squid served whole, and great to add with other dishes. The filet served on a personal grill was tender and quite a large cut. Tasty Argentinian style beef, paella which was more authentic than a Michelin guide restaurant and spaghetti with mixed seafood were also selections. We enjoyed various wines both red and white and found them to be very reasonably prices. They also have wine by the glass. The wine selection is extensive and should please most. The service is attentive and professional with the staff always at hand. It is a well run restaurant that services locals and visitors. Families choose to use it for celebrations and holiday events. I highly recommend it and am puzzled by some of the negative comments below. Just go and enjoy excellent food and quality service!

I went to lunch at "Frango da Guia" with a co-worker and not for the first time. We went for the main course of the house, the roasted chicken. As there were two of us, we ordered only 1 chicken, with the necessary accompaniments, bolo do caco, fried corn, a salad... the employee was quick to say that a chicken would be little and that it would bring 1 and ½ great hunger and he continued to insist on bringing 1 and ½, so it was done. In the end, half a chicken was left, from a chicken that, this time, was dry and poorly seasoned. Regarding the side dishes, nothing special, as in most places. I didn't eat what I paid for, unlike other occasions.

We popped in for a quick lunch and came away absolutely stuffed, having only ordered a main course. Given the name of the restaurant it was only right to order chicken. I ordered garlic chicken which had more garlic on it than any other dish I have ever had and as a big garlic fan really appreciated it. My husband had a tasty grilled chicken which came with superb chips. Portions were so generous and the staff really helpful. While the restaurant is average from an aesthetics perspective the food exceeded our expectations.

Popped by for some chicken takeaway. Ordered half a chicken and chips, without garlic on the chips. Waited over half an hour to receive 5 tiny pieces of cut up wings and thighs band soggy under cooked chips with garlic on them. The staff were friendly and atmosphere so nice that I had thought to go there for dinner the next night but when we opened the takeout at home, no way!

Had quite high expectations with this restaurant, based off the previous reviews and score. Also expected it to feel like a steakhouse or grill house based off the branding. The starters of garlic bread and cheese (separately) were good. However, the cheese was served in what looked like yogurt packaging, which seemed unusual. My partner had a mixed meat grill, while I had the Brazilian steak. Both were good, and a little tabletop grill allowed us to finish our meat how we liked it. My side of fries was fine but nothing special, while my partner's veggie sides drew no comment from her. Dessert was excellent and the highlight. My partner raved about her tiramisu until she tried my freshly baked cookie with ice cream, which was absolutely amazing (especially if you're a sugar/carb fiend). My wine (a vinho verde) was alright, but my partner's rose sangria was fantastic. Bill came to about €70 so reasonable, but not cheap. I would probably recommend this restaurant, but please go in with lower expectations than I went in with.

Rather than having to travel into Funchal again wanted a restaurant local to ourselves. What a great choice we made for 2 adults and 2 children. Starters were shared with some excellent garlic bread and also sautéed garlic mushrooms. In hindsight we would not have ordered this if we knew what was to follow. The mains consisted of half baby chicken, beef skewer (this could be enough for two people to share ), Brazil steak and battered octopus. All were excellent and we ordered some chips (best we have had on the trip ) and a fresh salad to share. The Brazil steak comes seared and a small hot plate to allow you to cook the steak accordingly to your tastes. It was excellent. Only one pudding was ordered to share between the kids. This was a hot cookie with fresh ice cream, which they enthused over. Had an excellent bottle of Syrah rose with the meal. Staff were friendly, responsive and humorous. Seating area on terrace or inside which is conditioned. Exceptionally modern and clean.

Enjoyed a very good meal, food was plentiful and well cooked, the staff were very attentive and eager to help. We had a variety of different dishes and they were all well cooked. A good place to go for a more special meal which was what we wanted at the end of our holiday.

Amazing place, tasty food, good atmosphere, helpful staff. We tried octopus salad, shrimps, meat grill mix, stakes, sea food mix. Everything was very good and impressive presented. As it was last evening in Madeira it was real “Last supper” :). Food worth it price. We were happy and full.

We came here three times while staying nearby. The food each time was excellent, in particular the clams, steaks and fish platter. The service by all staff was brilliant, in particular Celia who was very friendly and helpful. If we ever return to Garajau this will be our go to place.

The food was great and the restaurant staff were really nice. How ever we did have to bring to the attention of the waiter a live bug in our salad which was off putting. The salad was changed, and the waiter apologised. But at no time during our meal were we approached by the manger. When I said to him that an apology would have been nice he a just shrugged his shoulders and walked away. Would not recommend this restaurant in the future.

Great service and quality produce. Extremely generous portions. Sadly no space for beautifully presented and delicious looking desserts Would recommend wholeheartedly!

This is a good restaurant and the food is good. It is a bit pricy. What I don't like about the restaurant is that they bring starters that you didn't order and then they charge for it. This seems to be the policy for charging more and I find it a bit "dishonest" to do this to the guest. They should ask you first and show you the item on the menu. I have been to this restaurant a couple of times but each time I was upset because of this treatment. I don't expect this in Madeira, perhaps in Venice or Rome but not in Madeira. You can get very good food at many restaurants without such tricks. Otherwise, the food is ok.

We had a lovely meal...garlic shrimps, pepper steak, scabbard, tuna fish salad and chicken salad all delicious. Perfectly cooked vegetable sides and delicious deserts, though only 2 had deserts as portion sizes are very generous. The service was excellent too, unfortunately I didn't get the name of the young lady that served us (she'd recently returned from working in England) but she was lovely. Our only suggestion would be to offer a gluten free bread as we had a coeliac in our party. Otherwise 10/10

Ate here a couple of times during our stay in Garajau and enjoyed every meal. Food and setting are slightly better than the surrounding restaurants, which is reflected in the price. Try the Brasilian beef, grilled squid or even the fried spagetti with seafood. Good wine suggestion from the Douro area in Portugal (@ 10€). Friendly service and waiters will go the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable. Vegan lovers will probably find it hard to eat here due to little to no choice in veggy meals. On average, we paid 25-30€ per person for a small starter, aperitif, main course, bottle of wine and water and coffee.
