Madeira and its Landmarks
Part 8: A Visit to O Lagar Restaurant
East of the condominium in Funchal was a gem of a restaurant called O Lagar Restaurant.
In Canada the day after Christmas is known as Boxing day. In Madiera, it is considered part of the Christmas Holiday. Everyone is still relaxing and visiting their family; and the streets are calm.
We were invited by cousins of my husband to enjoy espetada in a family style dinner. The atmosphere was happy and the decor was festive.
The entrance of the restaurant was styled as a traditional Portuguese Santana house.
This portion of the restaurant served as a museum.
A view into the Santana from the entrance. This traditional style of home is often known as “grandma’s house”.
Notice the very small furniture pieces. A bed, night table, and baby crib. Notice the roof is made from grass like material.
Two mannequins posing in traditional Portuguese dress.
A Beautiful Madeira Wood Table.
The main entrance was decorated to the nines with lively poinsettia plants for the holiday.
A wonderful evening at O Lagar.
