We visited this restaurant twice for lunch during our week on Madeira. The food was excellent and the waiters were very friendly. There was a great view from the flower-lined balcony and it was amazingly good value for money.

So friendly, not pestered every time you walk by but made so welcome when decision to stop and eat. We ate here 7X it was so good. T bone is huge, all the steaks all large but all cooked to perfection. We tried many things on the menu, happy to accommodate our likes and dislikes. This is an exceptional restaurant... More

My wife and I have been going to this restaurant for the past 15 years and having just returned from Madeira we find the standards are as good as ever. Besides the food being excellent we find the staff have an excellent sense of humour very similar to the British. Try to sit upstairs if you can,where you can overlook... More

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
