Have visited here on many occasions. The portions are generous and the food does not disappoint. Service is excellent and friendly. Some of the Chef specials are a tasty twist on regular Madeirian cuisine. The upstairs terrace is the best place to be and offers a good view.

A meal on a very wet night, it was nice to see the greeter cross the street too keep us dry even though he didn't know we were eating there. Service was a tad slow and the food was OK but not that brilliant, my steak was done to my liking but a significant part was gristle.

This is our first port of call when we arrive in Funchal. Friendly staff, a choice of pavement seating or balcony - both give a good view of the areas activity. Food is always good and has a real local touch.

I have been going to Madeira since 1988. O Tapassol was then and still is now the best dining experience in Funchal. The setting and view is beautiful; you are looking towards the sea and the old town. The outside seating is comfortable and you can smoke there. The waiters do a magnificent job. White wine comes in a chiller... More

During our weeks stay in Funchal we ate here a few times, staff are very friendly and the food is very varied and well cooked. The old town area is such a buzzing area in the evenings.

Although the staff do stand outside and try to trap you, we found this place really welcoming and the food very good. Fish and beef espadada particularly recommended. The taxis wait in the street just outside, so very handy for getting home. As with many of the better restaurants in Funchal, they ply you with Madeira as an aperitif, and... More

Lovely upstairs terrace (no smoking allowed) with nice views. The food is varied and caters for most tastes. If a sweet and chocolate lover try and leave room for the chocolate mouse.
