The service is excellent and the setting perfect overlooking the sea at the top of the old town in Funchal. The dishes are all rice based and are delicious. The puddings also have an element of rice in them and are very inventive. If you want a meal with a difference this is the place

The restaurant has lovely sea views and the food is excellent. The rice dishes are outstanding especially the one with chorizo and red beans. They also do a surprisingly tasty curry dish. The staff are friendly and service is very good. We ate there several times during our holiday.

This restaurant is overrated and overpriced.Had a lunch time snack so didn't taste the rice meals,maybe I should have.Service was poor staff didn't seem to be interested in serving.The only good point is the view.

Just had the most beautiful meal so far on this holiday. Started with the best madeira wine I have been offered so far , as most of it has been cheap and intoxicating. The food is exquisite. All based around different types of rice incorporated into each course, which is great for my kind of diet. Beautiful setting and great... More

Yet another excellent meal here. The original concept was and still is innovative, and it works wonderfully well. The dishes are delicious and beautifully presented and the menu selection us wide ranging - really something for everyone. Naturally rice features heavily throughout but don't be afraid, sometimes you don't even notice you are eating one of a huge variety of... More

On arriving we were greeted and taken to the outside terrace with the most stunning view of the ocean. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the whole restaurant had a wonderful relaxed atmosphere. The food was simply beautiful and the house wine was an excellent choice. You must visit this gem of a restaurant if you go to... More

Really great menu, each dish incorporating rice in one way or another. Great location on the edge of the artists area, overlooking the sea. Food very good and in an extremely nice old building. Recommend it.

I had an awful customer service experience in this restaurant. I ordered vegetarian foods only but was brought chicken puree or something like that without the waitress telling me what it is. I ate it and felt disgusting. I made a complaint and was basically asking for "any compensation that would make me as a customer happy again". I was... More

We went here on our first night in Funchal and are so glad we did. We somehow got the last table downstairs with the ocean view and enjoyed the best gin and tonics we have had for a long time. The white wine was one they recommended and it was excellent. Each dish is rice based and is a little... More
