Always make a visit here to see our friendly waiter Paoulo and enjoy a lovely meal.

Once again we called here in February. The menu is varied and reasonably priced, the service is friendly and attentive and we always have a laugh along the way. When you have finished your main course, you must have the Passion fruit desert or the fruit salad. They are divine. I lost count of the... read more

Back again for my third visit.two of which were in 2014,I was interested to see if much had changed , as this small restaurant on two floors, is a firm favourite now. Situated in the old town, its quite small and intimate with helpful attentive service, One waiter has a particularly dry sense of humour which makes a bit of... More

Over the last three weeks we have eaten here regularly and always much enjoyed the food and particularly the fish. Tonight I deviated and had the sole, I now wish I had time to have it again. We are regular visitors to the island, O'Tappasol always provides excellent value and superb fish and meat quality.

Every time we visit Funchal we always dine at this restaurant. Unfortunately on this occasion we were disappointed. We went with friends and while our meals were just ok our friend ordered the fish which he felt was far from fresh. We thought the whole experience was not their usual standard. We hope they can get their act together again... More

We have eaten here many times before over many years. It remains a great place to eat. The staff hardly change year on year and are efficient, helpful and friendly. The food is good with excellent value. There is more stylish food in Funchal but you have to pay for it. The restaurant's position is in the Old town with... More

Friendly and amusing staff. Best chocolate mousse in the world. the other food was very good also. Tables can be a bit close together when the restaurant is busy.

We have visited funchal many times and came across this restaurant in the 1990`s. It has always been excellent. That certainly hasn't changed so I am very surprised that it has dropped down tripadvisor ratings. I am also amazed at their kindness. I am a wheelchair user and recently broke a bone in my leg and I can't step up... More

Touristic as the majority of the Restaurants you´find, it was recommended by a local friend, since was a bit windy. Located in the beginning of the old town, they have a beautifull terrace, where you can enjoy a really good meal, for a fair price, served by a really friendly staff. I do recomend it.
