Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 May 2018

We drove back to the hotel from an exhausting hiking tour and stopped in Machico to find something to eat. At the MERCADO VELHO we found great food for a reasonable price. I love risottos so I decided for a mushroom risotto and tomato soup as a starter. They serve the tomato soup with a poached egg which is interesting and very tasty. The Risotto was excellent…the mushrooms were not only champignons but „real“ mushrooms which you could tell from their intense taste…very good! We will definitely come back again to have dinner during our stay at Madeira.

We ate outside at Mercado Velho. The food was very tasty, recommend the fish soup and the risotto. They served an excellent white wine Chamine with the food, a mix with Sauvignon blanc. All in all good service and good price.

We will be back for more....

The Mercado Velho restaurant is located next to the alley leading past the small yellow fortress in Machico. The low wall around the place is not a wall on the inside, but benches with tables and chairs for outside serving. The indoor restaurant was simply beautiful. On a spring Friday in March we were served a very good lunch by the sweet waitresses Christina and Paula. Good service, good food and a delightful experience.
