Steak on the stone can only be a winner on the experience front, but do remember not to dress up too smartly as clothes will take on the cooking ambiance. Service is very slick and efficient.

Just had our first meal of this year's visit to Madeira. Fabulous food, service and welcome here again. Looking forward to bringing friends later in the week. The steak on the stone is superb. Well worth a visit.

We visited this restaurant for several reasons.....one because it was across the road from our delightful hotel (Vila Vicencia) and another because several people had suggested we try it. We booked for 7pm and when we arrived it was almost empty.......but it started to fill very quickly so I would recommend booking. I had their "steak on a stone" which... More

We have eaten here a couple of times and have been very impressed. The fillet steak on the stone which you cook yourself to your liking just melts in the mouth. Lovely. chips, salad and coleslaw ( which is hard to find on the island!). House red wine very reasonably priced and delicious. As other reviews state tables are close... More

This place deserves to be high ranked. Hard to find places like this in Funchal. Went here twice and had good food both of the times. Take the meet that cooks itself on a hot stone plate and you wont be disappointed. Staff was helpful and we did not book just dropped by two evenings and it worked.

If you are on a package holiday you will be offered a discounted meal here. The value is good and the meal, particularly the "steak on a stone" is excellent. I would visit this restaurant even without the discount.

We had a sirloin steak served on the stone. Try it - it's different and delicious. Served with crisp jacket potato and salad and half a bottle of wine included with your set meal. Gets a little smoky as you cook your own meat "on the stone" so it's very hot. Great alternative to ordinary steak dinner. Totally packed when... More

My wife and I have visited here before and when in Funchal it's got to be done. We went early this year to beat the rush but in previous years it is cosy! Food is excellent steak on the stone to die for staff friendly, visit once and you will be back

I agree with the previous reviewer; the diners are packed rather tightly in this restaurant, but the staff are very friendly and helpful and the food was good. The steak on a stone was the meal of the day and cooked to perfection albeit all stones came out roughly simultaeneously and consequently the restaurant was quite smokey, ( the chap... More
