This was the first restaurant we ever visited in Funchal about 9 years ago, and have returned on each subsequent holiday. The food is good and plentiful, the prices reasonable and the staff extremely friendly and hard working. It's obviously a favourite with locals too, so booking is a must.

The restaurant from the outside isn't so calling and the first look at the menu was like "is there something special...". I am glad we visited this restaurant! The staff is awesome and the atmosphere is good! If you go before 19.30 you may get a table without reservation. The steak on the stone is a "must eat". Wow!

Decided to call having read some good reviews. We both enjoyed our meals, I really enjoyed my fajita. Nice salad bar. It was a popular place and some people were clearly regulars. Would go again.

Good value restaurant, easy to find in the Lido area. You may need to book after 8pm as it gets very busy. Good value set menu.

The food served here is not 'posh' nosh but well cooked and well sourced meat and seafood. Fillet steak on the stone was excellent and fajitas tender and nicely spiced. Nice salad bar as well that still looks fresh at 9 o'clock! Staff were friendly and service good - deserves its previous good reports.

The food as always was excellent and it is nice to see the place continues to be busy. we don't have the steak on a stone as towards the end the steak is too well cooked for us but the fillet...

Visited last night and had the set menu. The salad cart starter was excellent with the staple lettuce, tomatoes , beetroot and cucumber as well as more Germanic and southern European offerings. The chicken drumsticks were amazing. I had the steak on a stone main a generous 250g ( about 9oz for the more aged brit or American ), the... More

Have been before a few times but feel the need to review. Went 3 times during our stay.It don't look much from outside,much better inside. Food delicious along with service,staff work like clockwork. Only negative is that tables are too small and close together,but still you do tend to chat to other diners for this reason. Recommend.
