Stopped here for a light lunch. Sat outside over looking the sea, great views. Service was a little slow but both the waiter & waitress pleasant. Food very good and tasty. Bit of a walk up the steep hill to arrive at the restaurant but I guess with the views it offered it was worth it.

We didn't have a reservation so got in early and within minutes the place was full. We both had risotto which was excellent. We found the service friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Loved the location and atmosphere sitting under the sails watching the Porto Santo ferry go by and looking out to sea. A lovely memorable evening.

Was planning on going to Barreirinha Bar Café for a light lunch but as they were full nipped in to Riso instead. Stunning views from their outside terrace but feel the actual terrace could do with a little TLC. We wanted table on the side with the sea views however these are all reserved for the main menu so fine... More

If you like rice, and a pleasant twist on the traditional Portuguese fair of the Old Town, this restaurant on Rua de Santa Maria, opposite the church is a good choice. With a terrace above the sea (open for lunch and dinner) and a quieter restaurant open at night, the food and service were very good. Every dish contains rice... More

The restaurant is in old town overlooking the ocean. Our diner with the sound of crushing waves in the background was well presented and tasted well. The portions are okay and we found the service good.

We have visited "riso" over many years of taking holidays in Madeira. The restaurant overlooks the sea and is very modern and minimalist in appearance. We have only used the venue in the main for a light lunch costing around 6 euros. The portion sizes are small but quite honestly the risotto prices are a bit high for the quantity... More

Rice with everything, but in a good way! This place specialises in rice as the name suggests, but all the dishes are really imaginative and beautifully presented.

After we sat down, the waiter just threw the menus on the table without saying anything. The same happened when his colleague cleared the table later. Both off them seemed to be rather hostile and rude than friendly. The food, we had some sandwiches was average. The lemon tea was terrible. One off the worst experiences in Madeira.
