The Funchal hotel district is awash with restaurants ranging from the simple to the pretentious, but where the service and the food are uniformly ordinary. The delightful exception is the Solar da Ajuda where both are of consistently exceptional quality. We have eaten there many times over the years, most recently last month when we paid four visits. We can... More

we've visited Madeira many times and have walked past this restaurant on many occasions but haven't eaten there as we didn't like the look of the indoorness of the place. Finally decided to try it one evening. What a find! Service fantastic, food incredibly generous and well cooked and tasty. Though this venue seems to have no air conditioning and... More

Close to the hotel Buganvilia this restaurant could easily be overlooked due to it rather dull exterior, the window is filled with multi-lingual menus and it's hard to see inside. Bit venture in (DInners only from 17-30) and you will be treated like royalty. The food is excellent, try the steak on the stone or the fahitas; service is quick... More

Go for steak on a stone. Not sure what to do, ask Joe, he will look after you. The food is AMAZING and make sure you book, can get rather busy. Go early when its not too hot inside

I had the beef na pedra (that stone is hot, believe me!) and the meat was very good - tasty and tender. My wife had an omelette on our first visit and grilled chicken on the second and found both to be very good. The staff are friendly and very pleasant. Good food, good service and reasonable prices. Well worth... More

We had their "special"menu, and we loved the food there. We choose the steak on stone-meal, and it was SO delicius (but for 25 EUR). The garlic bread there is great too. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere good. Seriously though, this is one of the best pieces of meat I've had.
