Yes the tables are a bit close together but having said that it is so worth a visit. Avocado and Prawns (huge) for starters enough for two and delicious. Chicken Fajhitas for mains also enough to share. Try the steak on a stone---Gorgeous. Went twice in our weeks stay and would have gone again but thought we'd try other restaurants.... More

Excellent freshly cooked cuisine, especially famous for its Steak on the Stone dish. Very friendly staff and a very popular restaurant with hundreds of people returning year after year like ourselves. Highly recommend this restaurant to you all.

Tried after reports . Restaurant is very modern inside , maybe it was a quiet night this time but the place lacked a bit a atmosphere . We were greeted by staff who just seemed a little bit disinterested . We enjoyed our meals but don't think we would go again

Located just behind the Monumental Lido is this small restaurant noted for its steak on the stone. It had to be tried - and the fillet was very good. Granite stone arrives at your table and you cook it yourself to your liking. No discount for cooking your own dinner! My partner had the tomato soup for starter which was... More

My wife's parents (who have an apartment in Funchal, Madeira) have raved about the "steak on a stone" restaurant in Funchal for years so on our first visit to Madeira we just had to try it. OK so you essentially cook your own steak, but it's done just how you want it and I have to say the quality of... More

Just returned from a holiday at a local hotel. Prior to the holiday we had seen good trip advisor reviews of the restaurant so went in search. From exterior, nothing to look at but the food was best by far of all restaurants tried. Would strongly recommend you visit if in Funchal. We went back three times, staff welcoming, nobody... More

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
