I have holidayed in Funchal for 4 years and tend to go with a friend once or twice every year. The steak on the stone at Solar Da Ajuda is the best I have ever tasted. The fillet steak is so tender, the portion is huge, the prices are reasonable and the service is faultless. The staff are very friendly... More

I have reviewed this superb restaurant before but feel I could not leave Madeira without adding another, if like I do you like steak you will find none better than the ones on offer here! I usually eat here at least twice a week when I'm in Madeira, I have eaten steak all over the world and can honestly say... More

Staff very accommodating of our baby. Decided to both go for the steak on a stone with husband going for the larger one which he could not finish. It was great. We were given lovely liquors at the end, I had an almond one which was beautiful. Good value for money and great service. Highly recommended.

Have used this restaurant on several occasions over the years. Did not disappoint this time. Good value and really good staff. Tables a little close together. Food is honest and fine but the steak on a stone is bit overwhelming. Also it is inside only so gets quite hot in there. Nothing bad about it though at all.

When we come to Madiera we always come here for the steak on the stone and we are never disappointed. The same family has had this restaurant for over 12 years and it shows. They all work as a team and their smiles never slip with nothing being too much trouble. The menu is varied and we have never waited... More
