We stayed there for dinner. All the tables were already served and anyway the service was too show. The food was original with good ideas but horribly cooked. I asked for a risotto with "saint jacques" and the rice was overcooked (impresive in a place where they are expecialised in rices). My partner asked for duck and it as also... More

Like many before had read good reviews. Quite often I have had a good meal made even better by good service. Unfortunately here I had excellent meal made average by absolutely terrible service. Whilst initially we were made welcome from there on in it went down hill. Having been given the desert menu we decide after 25 minutes to ask... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Funchal with a stunning terrace overlooking the Atlantic. Everything is rice based, really different and beautifully cooked. The service is very good. Only issue is that they automatically serve you bread and appetisers whether you want them or not - and these are charged for. They should ask if they are wanted... More

A restaurant that serves rice dishes for every course may seem a little odd but it really works. I never knew there were so many varieties of rice or that rice could be cooked in so many different ways. Every dish I had was delicious but the coconut crumbed shrimps were absolutely out of this world. The appetisers were also... More

Nice ambiance and view to the sea, but the food was just ok. The risotto was cook too long, which shouldn't happen in a risotto restaurant. Besides that we enjoyed the stay.

We booked a table with a view at this Restaurant which features rice in all of its offerings and we're really looking forward to our evening. When we booked the staff were very helpful and the menu looked wonderful. When we arrived we were shown to our table-with its view- and before we knew what had happened, we're given bread... More

We enjoyed the food so much on our first visit we immediately booked again. Every dish is rice based in some way and there is plenty to choose from. The stunning terrace looks out over the Atlantic ocean and the service was very good. I really enjoyed the prawns dipped in coconut and rice flour served with mango mayonnaise.

One of my favourite restaurants in Funchal. It has a great setting - a terrace overlooking the sea. The food, while being rice based, is varied and of a high quality with wines to match. Some fantastic deserts too. A great night out.

We pre-booked our table and we got one of the best one with a breathtaking sea view, facing to the sunset. Professional and friendly staff with wine knowledge. You get each dish with different sort of rice, what is very imaginative, and gives some extra texture and taste. Its easy to make bad risotto however, they are succeeding, and it... More

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
