This place is a gem, its just around the corner from where we were staying and we ended eating there a few times after trying some of the other local restaurants.

We stayed opposite this restaurant so we had to try it. I dont like steak but the signiture dish steak on a stone looks wonderful. My wife had it and loved it. The staff are very friendly and you get served very quickly but you are not left feeling you had to go to get the next booking. One critical... More

I agree with a previous review that the restaurant doesn't look great from the outside but is absolutely lovely inside. The staff are friendly and so helpful. The food is just superb. My wife and I ate there two days in a row, both times were excellent. The second time was my wife's birthday where upon the staff all sang... More

Me and my wife ate here one night on our recent trip to Funchal. The decor of the restaurant is perhaps a little dated but the food and wine was very good. For starters we shared the prawns in garlic and that was great, we got about 20 prawns to share and a few pieces of bread each. For the... More

Very popular with a great salad bar. It was recommended, but wouldn't really want to go there every day which is what the couple that recommended it do. It's ok, but nothing special.

I had their special offer fish. It was highly average and really missed a sauce. Like so many other places in Madeira the Tripadvisor map points you to the wrong place. This restaurant is further down the street opposite of O'Dragoniero.

We ate here because the weather was bad and so wanted to eat inside. The speciality is steak on the stone which creates lots of heat and can make for an uncomfortable atmosphere, but the meat is good quality and you can cook it how you want. However my wife's chicken was overcooked and dry. You get a good salad... More

Visited Solar Da Ajuda for dinner. Food were good, affordable and comes in good portion. The restaurant is a bit noisy but its ok because it is a casual dining restaurant. When me and my boyfriend were there, the restaurant was packed and we were the last to arrive. The food took some time but we ordered a bottle of... More
