Went here in late September. Not much to look at but the staff were friendly and the steaks are amazing. Steak on a stone was unbelievably good and a genuine surprise. You wear a bib, cut it up and cook it to your liking on the stone. Really nice piece of meat, go easy on the garlic sauce though it's... More

The food are splendid and the service are professional. Food; in my case espetada on a real laurel skewer and on a previous occation; spaghetti was very nice prepared and served. The service are done with the customer in eye. The only thing which makes the total experience a little less than perfect are that the prices are generally adjusted... More

This is the second year we have eaten at this restaurant and were recommended to go for the local espetada cooked on bay sticks. Neither time have we been disappointed - the meat is tasty and tender. Drinks are above average price and overall the meal price is not the cheapest. The staff are very friendly. The location, an outdoor... More

This was a very good place to stop if you are in the area. Situated next to the Dorisol hotels, La Bamba offers you typical Italian specialties. A lot of tables are placed on the outside, so you have the beautiful street views. Food is well prepared and served within a reasonable time (about 20 minutes after order). Friendly staff,... More

He made polite general conversation and asked where my father in law had eaten within Funchal. Later during the conversation he suggested my father in law go to his restaurant and he would would give him... More

Frequented this restaurant on our last holiday and returned this April but they had removed one dish that we liked from the menu. Asked the waiter and he said if that's what you want you can have it. So we were very happy.

We've been here four times, mostly due to the wonderfully charming waiters and the delicious steak on a stone. The pizza was quite average, but the vegetarian lasagna was superb! The atmosphere is great and the place was always packed, leaving the restaurants nearby practically empty. These people don't need touts, they know perfectly well that great service and delicious...

Recommended this Pizza Restaurant as being the best in Madeira. After so many rich meals we decided to go for a pizza as a change. the first thing to go on a Pizza Base is Tomato which was clearly omitted on both the Pizza"s we ordered. Once again like most restaurants the wine was over priced for what it was.
