Where to find the best food in Madeira?
Savoring Madeira's delicious food
The cuisine of Madeira is heavily influenced by mainland Portugal, and southern Europe in general. Madeira's island location gives it a particularly rich and varied range of seafood. Local specialties include oysters and mussels, lobster paella, and meat dishes such as picado, made of small, succulent pieces of fried beef. Skewered meat cooked over wood fires, served with fresh green salad, is another typical dish to enjoy on Madeira's restaurant terraces.
Madeira wine is a local specialty, a fortified blend that comes in varieties for drinking either before or after meals. Regular wines are also found in abundance in the bars, restaurants, and supermarkets throughout the island. You can pick up excellent quality bottles for far less than in many other parts of the world. Finally, you can't visit Portugal without trying one of the famous pasteis de nata, or custard tarts.

These include the Madeira Botanical Garden and Jardins do Palheiro, the latter being sectioned into themes such as the Rose and French Gardens. Funchal is also a wonderful place to explore historic churches, such as the 17th-century Jesuit Colegio Church and Sé Cathedral.
The town of Santa Cruz is also an excellent location for appreciating the traditional crafts of Madeira. Visit the Fábrica da Requeijão Massa cheese factory, which is nestled among the nearby mountains, or buy delicious food at the Municipal Market to prepare at your vacation rental.
