If you come to Madeira and you don't visit the Solar Da Ajuda, well your trip has been in vain :-) The staff are the most curtious and friendly people you could hope to meet on the island. It was our last night and we had some disappointing meals so took to trip advisor to pick one of the top... More

Went for the steak on the stone. Got greedy and got the large which was incredible but smaller really would have been enough. Great meal.

lovely dining experience if a bit off the track to find but once we did we returned 3 times in the two weeks. Great steak on a stone and Fajitas and accommodated the complications of 4 fussy kids and particular adults in our party of 9 and then 7.

We've visited this restaurant from our first visit to Madeira 14 years on we still eat here. Every meal we've had has always been good. Fish and meat are all nicely cooked. Large portions.

Been coming here every year for a few years now. Always great. Steak on a stone is always excellent. Not a piece of gristle or fat to be seen! Must try another dish one day. If you haven't been here, you are missing out on a great little restaurant. Doesn't look much from outside, but I guarantee you won't be... More

The staff here are fantastically friendly and very helpful with any suggestions for food or beverages. The good is good, we only come here for one thing - traditional steak on the stone. Delicious cooked just as you want it with generous side portions and sauces. We have been coming here for 10 years so it can't be bad! Good... More

We were encouraged to book at this restaurant by our Thomson rep as it "was the best food in Funchal". She also said we had to book as the restaurant was so popular. So we booked and paid a €3 deposit per person via the rep who said the deposit would be deducted from the bill. I had chicken fajitas... More

I have had this dish in several restaurants and this is the best yet. Not only do they haver sirloin but fillet too and it is the only restaurant where they advertise both the type of steak and its weight.

We ate here on our first night in funchal as it was just round the corner from our apartments. We were both hungry and it was one of those 'oh let's just go in here moments' from the outside it does not look enticing but please give it a go. Our meal was really good. The best bit was the... More
