Magical evening setting

This restaurant is on the far end of the Old Town of Funchal and it took us a while to find it but it was well worth it. The setting is lovely and unlike some reviewers we found the staff and the food very good, we had not booked but were found a table very easily. The menu is different... read more

Lovely setting....so disappointed .... could have been so wonderful and romantic...BUT...waited tonight for an hour for the main course ...gave up waiting to be offered a dessert.... Not one member of staff asked how the meal was or had a smile on their face the entire evening.... Great shame as the food we had was wonderful but so let down... More

I have to be really honest and say that although the location is stunning and the ambiance perfect, I personally didn't enjoy the food. The fish soup (described as 'Crème Fish Soup with Coriander Aromatized Rice and Vinaigrette Mussels) was like a powdered tomato soup base with a few over cooked mussels thrown. My pork with barbeque sauce was pink... More

What a gem - tucked away at the edge of the Old Town. Amazing location with a patio suspended over the Atlantic. Attentive service. Fabulous food & wines. We returned a few times - don't miss this great restaurant.

Had supper there yesterday. Food was excellent and place has a modern feel to it. Something different to the restaurants nearby.

Just up the hill going out of the Old Town is Riso - try to get a nice table on the edge. Good choice on the menu, nicely presented and not too expensive. The wine was good and we followed the waitresses recommendations and it was really good and worth the couple of euros more. The service was good, as... More

Funchal in Madeira is full or restaurants which serve similar food - most of it rather indifferent, but a few years ago we were staying at a hotel nearby this restaurants and make sure it is on our schedule every time we visit the island. The dishes are all rice-connected and it certainly provides a great departure from standard Madeiran... More

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
