In any restaurant serving traditional Madeira food, every mouthful is infused with a touch of homemade flavour. The reason for this is that traditional cuisine has a legacy of simplicity, sharing and the Madeiran soul. Tasting traditional Madeira food is therefore both an incredible sensory experience and one of the best ways to truly get to know Madeira's culture.
