Concierge.com's insider take:
This mountainside tavern halfway between Funchal and Monte does attract its share of tourists, but with good reason. The menu is terribly simplechicken and beef espetadas (skewered kebabs) cooked in an open wood-burning ovenand makes for a refreshingly carnivorous break from all that seafood. Also, the atmosphere is exceedingly convivial, from the regular Fado shows and other folk music performed live nearly nightly, and because diners rip their own meat off the tripod of skewers hanging above the table, sopping up the juices with warm, freshly baked bread. All good fun.
