Lovely restaurant

Excellent meal and great staff. Smallish restaurant but doesn't detract from the quality. Recommended.

Really liked this restaurant, we were staying in old Funchal so it was a lovely stroll down each evening stopping at various bars and then having dinner here. If you can get a table in the upper terrace you can watch all the comings and goings and watch the locals playing games in the park area. The food was very... More

We spent three evenings at the Tapassol for dinner during our recent holiday. This was our fifth visit to Madeira and the Tapassol has become a firm favorite. The menu is varied enough to give a fish lover a treat and also a treat for the meat lover. The thick tuna steak special one evening turned out to be very... More

The cook uses too much vegeta and way too much of cheap oil. It's expensive. Well, when your place is 500m from the best fish market on the island, you should cook like a top chef, not like an idiot

We have been visiting this restaurant for many years. The food and service have always been of a high quality and it was pleasing to see that standards have been maintained in 2015. There was the usual warm greeting from Santos before we were taken to our seats upstairs. We enjoyed three courses plus drinks in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere... More

After a few year's absence we visited O'Tapassol in the old town and were delighted with the ambience, the food and the service. We will be back.

My wife and I visited this restaurant on two occasions in December last year and found it a very pleasurable experience. The staff spoke excellent english and knew how to describe the various menu items and took an interest in what they were doing. Whilst some outlets pay superficial attention this stood out as an establishment for others to follow.... More

First visited some 10 years ago. Looked after our young child, by providing a fish in plain style and chips This time, couples only visit Terrace upstairs is the ONLY place to be. Rest of restaurant average. Very welcoming front of house and service throughout. They certainly know about the ingredients and exact style of cooking for each dish. Dominges,... More

We decided to eat here as it was recommended to us by fellow hotel guests we met. They had one table left upstairs on the balcony which is a great spot. The waiters were super friendly and we had some great banter with them. Food was perfect. Best meal I'd had all holiday - chicken mushroom rice and salad. The... More
