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.

We usually visit the Riso snack cafe at some stage in a holiday as the situation is so magnificent. The cafe is in a sheltered location next to the sea with awnings reminiscent of sails above and the potential to screen the sides should the weather be inclement. When we went this week however we ordered the roasted vegetable open... More

This lovely restaurant with sea views is east through the old town in Funchal, via a load of other, lesser restaurants. In Madeiran terms, it's expensive but in mainland European terms, it's a snip. Great food and superb service awaits. It's great for a romantic meal, and, as the name suggests, is based on rice. Loosely.

This is the third Christmas Eve visit aside from others during the year. This time the tide was in and the sea roaring beautifully, full of drama and pyrotechnics. The gas burners were toasty warm as was the welcome we received as usual. There was a special menu to choose from for Christmas albeit following the principles of rice this... More

Very good food and nice setting - overlooking the ocean. Rice-inspired or containing dishes. Have been several times and was never disappointed.

This restaurant is amazing, awesome service, awesome food & awesome view. We went on our last Saturday of our holiday and it was all by candle light. Make sure you book ahead and ask for an edge seat with the best sea view. The middle seats are still cool though.

Lovely ambiance, right on the water. Lots of options for vegetarians/vegans. Great concept, nice wine list. I had the curry and my boyfriend had the Parrotfish, both were excellent.
