The Taverna Grill is right across the street from the Pestana Carlton Madeira Hotel. We were only looking for a light snack and the Taverna Grill had simple sandwiches which was perfect for us at that time.

I visited the Taverna Grill in the Pestana Carlton hotel with my fiance on the last night of our holiday. The service was good and the food was nice, however the restaurant itself lacked the atmosphere we'd found in abundance elsewhere. It was a Sunday night and was quite empty, so it was very quiet - to the point where we were almost whispering to each other. The tables for two positioned around the edges of the restaurant have place settings next to each other rather than opposite, so you are each facing outwards - which made us feel a bit like we were having dinner with the couple next to us. I would have preferred to be seated facing each other. The decor in the Taverna is nice, particularly when it gets dark, as there is an almost medieval theme to it. It's just a shame that it wasn't more full, as that might have taken the ambiance up a notch.

Down in the depths of the Carlton Pestana is the Taverna Grill. Traditional and old world decor with attentive service and lovely food .
The starters were tasty and the mains mouthwatering.
The desserts could be a little more adventurous and in keeping with the other two courses . Non the less the dessert was nice but nothing special.
Again we used the Pestana dine around passes 78euro for 3 x three course meals in the restaurants available within the options . Definitely value for money .

We stayed in Pestana Carlton to celebrate my 60th Birthday and decided to eat at the taverna Grill. We order Arroz Gammas (Prawn Rice with sea bas fish) and Legumes Grartin (Chicken with veg dish) dishes- the Veg in the chicken dish was uncooked and it was uneatable- My wife did not eat. we mention to the waiter and the manager offered the desert as a complement. This was a bad experience. While we were there two other guests also complained about there food. Hope this was one off bad day for the chef and not a regular occurrence.
