Cachoa was highly recommended by some locals...it is off of the beaten path...near the A22 and out of city center. However, the menu, prices, staff and food were excellent...nice table outside and nice atmosphere. Selection was very good too...plenty of options for anyone's palate. Nice vibe in teh restaurant and there was light, live music too

We had an exceptional meal at Cachoa after enjoying a visit there last year. We had booked ahead before arriving in Portugal and asked for an inside table next to the window, which was ready for us. There is a choice of outside eating, which looks beautiful in the little rustic courtyard/garden strung with fairy lights and candles. The table... More

Let's start with the surprise of this hidden pearl off the main road. Not easy to find though. From Lagos take the direction of Vila De Obispo. At the roundabout for Praia da Luz look and follow the sign to Funchal. The sign for Cachoa Restaurant is immediately visible and on the left a few feet down the road. Once... More

Really liked the setting, so different to all the other restaurants. Excellent friendly service. Food was above average. The desserts were slightly too sweet and my partners lamb had far too much berry sauce. But I would recommend this lovely restaurant. One note to the owner. On the way out there was a bad smell of drains. But we didn't... More

This restaurant has a very relaxed, peaceful style. The waiting staff are very attentive and you don't feel rushed. The fish soup was excellent and so was the the lamb loin. Tried the house white, which was also good and inexpensive. My only negative comment is that the deserts were too sweet for a more mature pallet. In my opinion,... More

This is such a hidden gem. You can hardly believe that you will experience something so lovely just off the motorway!! The covers to start the meal were just splendid so there was no need for a starter - Olive tapenade, sun dried tomato and cream cheese along with wonderful pate and olives. The whole meal was a triumph and... More

A short walk if you're staying at the nearby Quinta Bonita, Cachoa is a lovely restaurant for an outdoor meal. The seafood was very good and the mains quite substantial, so we could only really fit in a shared dessert, which was also excellent.

Beautiful setting (ask for an outside table), attentive but discreet staff and amazing food. This was by far our most expensive meal but it was very special and a fitting end to our holiday. The menu is concise but self explanatory and everything turned up beautifully cooked...according to my husband, the rack of lamb was sublime and the special chocolate... More
