This is definitely the most impressive of all the restaurants we have eaten at in Funchal over the years. We were a little hesitant about the concept of a restaurant which specialises in rice but we decided to give it a go and were very pleased we did. The location is superb. Our table was upstairs (which we had requested... More

We ate at Riso yesterday (12.09.14) and had the most awful meal. We ordered the set lunch - chicken curry. The ´chicken´was not meat in any real sense at all. It was lumps of something which may once have been chicken, but pumped full of water so that it had entirely the wrong texture (more like fish?) and no taste... More

This was the only restaurant we ate at twice during our holiday in Funchal. The food was tasty and a little different from the norm the bulk of Funchal restaurants serve. The Olives and Chicken liver pate served as the cover were very good. We only ate mains on both occasions, we found these very agreeable, risotto and a curry... More

We stayed there for dinner. All the tables were already served and anyway the service was too show. The food was original with good ideas but horribly cooked. I asked for a risotto with "saint jacques" and the rice was overcooked (impresive in a place where they are expecialised in rices). My partner asked for duck and it as also... More

Like many before had read good reviews. Quite often I have had a good meal made even better by good service. Unfortunately here I had excellent meal made average by absolutely terrible service. Whilst initially we were made welcome from there on in it went down hill. Having been given the desert menu we decide after 25 minutes to ask... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Funchal with a stunning terrace overlooking the Atlantic. Everything is rice based, really different and beautifully cooked. The service is very good. Only issue is that they automatically serve you bread and appetisers whether you want them or not - and these are charged for. They should ask if they are wanted... More

A restaurant that serves rice dishes for every course may seem a little odd but it really works. I never knew there were so many varieties of rice or that rice could be cooked in so many different ways. Every dish I had was delicious but the coconut crumbed shrimps were absolutely out of this world. The appetisers were also... More

Nice ambiance and view to the sea, but the food was just ok. The risotto was cook too long, which shouldn't happen in a risotto restaurant. Besides that we enjoyed the stay.

We booked a table with a view at this Restaurant which features rice in all of its offerings and we're really looking forward to our evening. When we booked the staff were very helpful and the menu looked wonderful. When we arrived we were shown to our table-with its view- and before we knew what had happened, we're given bread... More
