Visited for my birthday meal, very memorable night. We had 4 course meal with wine pairings, and the choices were extensive and all courses were well presented and were of a very high quality. All staff were friendly and attentive. We were seated in the courtyard, where live music helped create a lovely ambience. At the end of the meal,... More

We found this restaurant by sheer chance on the second day of our week in Funchal. The food, the quality of the cooking, the staff ... everything was really great by any standard. And amazingly it is little more expensive than other places. The only downside was that every other dinner we had was compared to Armazem - unfavourably -... More

After two years, back again, with a very similar experience as we had previously: excellent. Also I know, that I repeat other reviewers´ texts but what else can I do, since those are also my opinions. The service was fast and polite and the guitar player created very pleasant background music. Armazem do Sal offers a full menu with wines... More

We visited Armazem do Sal in the lunch time but ordered dishes that were not in lunch menu because wanted to experience smth special. Everything was great! Risotto and steak was parted for two portions for us and it was huge even after that! We would like to thank chef and waiters for the great meal and service.

But we visited last night and everything about our evening was fabulous. We were greeted with a smile and shown to our table.We went for the 39 Euro wine matching menu.The service all evening was great... More

We visited this restaurant on our first night in Funchal, and were very impressed. It has a great atmosphere, and the food and service is first class. Would recommend the 39 euro's option, which more or less gives a choice of any course, and the wine flowed freely throughout. I am not a lover of haute cuisine, but although the... More

So, We went on June 22nd 2014, it was a nicely lit, quiet venue with an excellent guitarist playing in the background, enough so you could hear it but not intrusive. My girlfriend ordered the Steamed salmon whilst I went with the Filet Mignon. Drinks we had a bottle of white Madeira wine to the tune of €39 and followed... More

We ate very well during two weeks in Funchal but Armazem was clearly the most impressive place we found so we returned on 12 July. The service, the room and the music all back up the efforts of the chef very well indeed. This is surely close to a Michelin star level and still extraordinary value. The set menu with... More
