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

Super sardine with salad and chips. Delicious mushroom omelette. Lovely view overlooking the park area. Reasonably priced. Very pleasant and friendly staff

Having eaten here some 2 years ago, we were disappointed with the presentation of the food. Best described as Bland. Reasonable value for money but not a restaurant that excites the taste buds.

We eat hear at least twice during our holiday because the food is to a good standard and the prices compete with other restaurants in the area. If you want a fun night with good food look no further. Ask for a table on the terrace.

The food was very good and the staff were very friendly and knew all about what they were serving. The fish was fresh and local (or if imported they made this very clear). Cannot fault the evening, definitely worth a visit.

We have been visiting Madeira for the past 15 years and a table on the terrace at the Tapasol overlooking the busy street on our first evening means our holiday starts here. We just love the way the staff welcome and look after us – do they really remember us for one year to the next? We do look at... More

One of the many restaurants in the old town with similar menus. It was a cold and rainy evening so sat inside in a cosy looking room. Had a complimentary glass of Madeira to start and two courses which came to under €17 (without any wine). Food of a good standard and the passion fruit pudding was plentiful and delicious.... More

6 of us ate there last week, it was the worst meal of the week. Although we got a 10% discount we did not feel that it was good value.

My wife and I first went to Funchal 17 years ago, and on that first trip we were lucky to find O Tapassol restaurant. The quality of food and the service was so good, that every time we go to Madeira we make a point of dining there at least once during the trip. Much has changed in Madeira since... More
