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

We stumbled across this little gem on our way to take a look at another restaurant we had been recommended. We'd been looking for somewhere to try one of the local specials, Steak on Stone, and not only was it on the menu but we could see a number of diners enjoying the dish through the windows. The following night... More

This restaurant was recommended to us in a Thomson guide so we decided to give it a go. Definitely book at this restaurant if you want to eat there as when we first tried we couldn't get a table and booked for another evening. The staff were all smiles and very attentive. My boyfriend has a nut allergy and they... More

Have visited this restaurant each time we've been to Madeira - this is our fifth year - and the standard remains as high as ever. Great steak-on-the-stone and espetada, staff very welcoming and reasonably priced food and wine.

Visited here again on our annual trip to Madeira. Very friendly staff and food was very good The only thing I don't like is it gets too warm the air conditioning needs to be cooler. Very reasonable Worth a visit.
