Went there twice in ten days, so that says something! The speciality beef was very good indeed and the side dishes of black beans, rice, sweet potato and so on were nice too. They didn't have the first wine we ordered, but the substitute was fine. We enjoyed the pineapple with cinnamon after the beef. Don't make the mistake of... More

A really decent restaurant with good quality food. Beef on the skewer is first class! Starters of garlic king prawns and deep fried potato peelings also excellent. Can't fault the food or service. Only minor gripe was that two of the staff were having quite a vocal disagreement very near to where we were sitting. They should have done this... More

One of the best meals we had on holiday. The staff were lovely and interacted with the customers all night. The portions were immense but the quality of the food was first class. A must visit if you go to Funchal

Managed to fit us in on a Saturday evening, even though we had not booked. Lovely food and wine, what more could you ask for?! Best to book for a Friday or Saturday evening.

Tried the Pichana that everyone seems to be raving about. Yes, it was ok but certainly not worth getting excited about. If you like your plate refilled until you can eat not more, then this is for you. Personally I would much prefer a single piece of quality steak than pile after pile of salty Pichana. However, pleased we tried... More

Tried this restaurant after reading many good reviews on Trip Advisor. We tries the speciality Pinchana which basically is beef carved from a skewer on the table, delicious! It might seem expensive at 16 Euros but you get all youe side dishes included with this. Firstly you get a generous carving of beef, then another, by this time I was... More

Tracked this down on trip advisor. One of the top ten restaurants in Funchal area. You will need to make a reservation if you want to eat before 9pm but after that you should be able to walk in unless it's a weekend. If you like meat then you will enjoy this venue. Beef is their speciality and if you... More

Great restaurant that doesn't look up to much from the outside but the dull signage hides a little gem which we returned to twice on our holiday. The restaurant has a great wine list of local and mainland wines which we were guided with by the owner. the beef is great and the pichana is the one to choose continually... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a family member. It was that good that we went twice in the week. (Last week) We had a variety of dishes but the house speciality beef piccanha was a delight and unusual as it was cut from a skewer straight on to your plate. There was a great choice of side dishes... More

We attended this restaurant last night based on its previous reviews on trip advisor. We were not disappointed! All staff were extremely friendly. To start we had prawns cooked in garlic and butter as well as cured ham, garlic bread and local fresh cheese. The bread and the cheese in particular were beautiful, however the prawns and ham were slightly... More
