We arrived into Funchal early evening and headed straight out to find some food. We stumbled across Riso and decided to head in. I wasn't very keen, the outside screamed "Rice" and I had visions of a plate with mound of rice and whatever dish on top. However I was converted. The dishes all have some rice inspiration, be it...

They didn't get off to a great start when they couldn't find our reservation; I know that the reservation was made so they somehow lost it. We were found a table inside, not what we wanted but as we'd been planning on trying this restaurant for our past few island visits we decided to go for it. The problem with... More

Just enjoyed the 39euros special deal and the food and service were excellent, especially the food. There was maybe too much free wine served and the service was a little too fast to start with, but overall no complaints. The restaurant itself is a conservatory added to the fortress wall, so the ambience lacks a traditional comfortable atmosphere and without... More

tranquil restaurant just a stones throw away from the busy streets of Funchal. Great views of the ocean whilst enjoying a great selection of freshly prepared risotto dishes

The wind of the ocean goes through your hair, you hear the sound of the ocean and you enjoy very nice plates around the product rice. Also nice plates for vegetarians.

Absoutely superb setting right on the rocks facing The Atlantic. Food was tremendous and rice comes in some shape or form with everything. Its clean; open; the staff are very cheery and the food was delicious.

Stunning setting , sitting above the sea and seeing the crashing waves on the seafront, was a wonderful experience.Food was very good, starters of prawns was tasty, I had the duck confit with a timbale of rice, which was tasty, but unfortunately the timbale was too big and heavy, and I was not able to finish it. Desserts-good choice and... More

Thoroughly enjoyed a special meal here on their "Planets evening" although the only difference was that they kept the lights out and everything was candlelit, which made reading the menu a little difficult. All dishes involve rice, were well executed and enjoyable. Sitting above the sea was novel and added to the experience. Marked down one point as we felt... More

Like others, I was drawn in by the stunning setting. Female, dining alone through choice, the maitre d' clearly viewed my existence as unimportant whilst he fawned embarrassingly over other diners. The female staff were pleasant. There were many things about this restaurant that annoyed me, including the assumption that you want a platter of appetisers. As this was mostly... More
