The Old Pharmacy
The good taste is everywhere: well-represented island’s products, several appetisers and more elaborate dishes and an excellent wine service. The esplanade is very welcoming.
At the beautiful village of Ponta do Sol, this wine bar occupies the installations of what used to be an old pharmacy, hence the name. The owner dreamed of having such a space and, as soon as possible, she got down to work, creating The Old Pharmacy. Maria José’s idea was to focus on Portuguese cuisine’s products and accompany them with Portuguese wines, with a great presence of the greatest Madeiran wines. The space has a small area of souvenirs and some products that may be bought there. This is a space in which the foodie concept is practiced: together with several types of drinks, Portuguese products are enjoyed, served in several cheese, sausages, conserves and tapas plates. On Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays, another innovation, a brunch from 10 A.M. to 4 P.M. Twice per month, on Sundays, during the warming months, Fado nights take place on the exterior terrace. Glamourous, exquisite and offering what is genuine, The Old Pharmacy is a contemporary space.
