We arrived at lunch-time, planning to have lunch on their terrace bar. When we arrived, there was no-one to greet us, so we asked the passing waiter if it was ok to sit at this table. He shrugged and walked off, so we presumed this was a yes. We waited, and waited, and waited..... eventually the same waiter passed us... More

My partner and I have stayed in an apartment very close to this place on 3 different holidays, we walk past it twice a day and it is always empty! I do not know how it survives. Last year we just had a beer there overlooking the ocean and it was very nice. This last holiday we decided to have... More

Went for lunch menu on the terrace. Was told to move as left-hand tables were for people eating from the evening menu although restaurant was empty. Lunch adequate but beer most expensive in Funchal

When the weather's hot on holiday; we usually avoid rice & risotto themed establishments, fearing them too bulky and heavy. Therefore in all our many previous visits to Madeira, we always walked past this place. However a friend of ours said he put it "up there with the Forte". So this time we ventured in. And we're glad we did!... More

This alternative restaurant is situated overlooking the sea and offers a menu based on rices from around the world. Although the service is willing, they young staff seemed a little overwhelmed at times, possibly due to the popularity of the restaurant. The dishes were certainly 'different' which was a welcome change on an island that is full of 'samey' food.... More

Riso specialises in rice dishes but the food is delicious. The prawns with mango mayonnaise to start are fabulous. The risottos are wonderful and accompany different meat or fish dishes. The fillet steak was the best I've ever had anywhere. My only criticism is the wines are expensive and a bottle of house wine at €19 is exorbitant.

We chose this restaurant based on reviews and view. Note that the restaurant is closed on Mondays. The view was very nice. As a starter, I has mixed vegetable so nothing could go wrong. the main course I had was asparagus risotto with scallops - i felt the rice was overcooked. As a desert we chose tiramisu but were disappointed... More

Certainly worth a visit, had lovely food at a lunch time, sat outside on terrace with lovely view of the coast line, only negative was male server who I think would rather have been at home than working, just did basic, would not put us off revisiting as food was so tasty and beautifully presented.

Restaurant with a good lunch menu, and great view. The service was friendly and helpful. We will definitely return to try the dinner menu. One word of advice (not criticism) - if the wind is strong and from the east, take something warm with you as it can be cold and exposed on the terrace.
