Lunch in the sun

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.

Nice location with views over the ocean. Has had lunch here before but this was our first, but not our last, dinner. As the name indicates everything is centered around rice and I personally was a bit skeptical but they really surprised me. Easily the best rice-based meal I have ever had. The staff was very good and funny (really... More

This is in the old town and to get here you pass through all the painted doors etc. We both had delicious pea and ham soup to start and one of us had sardines the other a meat dish both lovely....

We reserved a table for two @ the riso. We got a really nice one with a beautiful view to the sea. Soon after we sat down we ordered our drinks (beer and a glass of white wine ). They arrived together with greetings from the kitchen. While enjoying the drinks we asked the waitress about vino verdevthey had on... More

Riso has an absolutely fantastic location on the rocks in old town with brilliant sea views. Food is good but you must enjoy rice accompaniments - fillet steak is excellent as is their fish dishes. Staff attentive. Book table in advance to ensure a good one at the windows.

You need to like rice, but the food is delicious and different from other restaurants around. The price is reasonable if you choose from the Suggested Menu

As long as you like rice, this is the place to eat. Beautiful location with uninterrupted views of the sea. Option of inside and outside dining both with the views of the sea. Food was well prepared and full of flavour.

Depite the promise of spectacular views across the bay this place was thoroughly disappointing. Indifferent and somewhat surly service, the food was drab, the portions small, all in all a sad contrast to other good restaurants we found inFunchal. Do yourself a favour and give it a miss!

We have visited this restuarant a few times now, and the food, location and concept are still brilliant.....sitting on the terrace, listening to the waves crash below is one of the best experiences you can have in a restuarant, it is wonderful. As usual the food was very good and generally the service is friendly and excellent, it is a... More
