Fresh off an early flight from London, we arrived in Funchal bleary eyed, ravenous and in need of some lunch. By chance we found ourselves near Jardim de São Francisco and confronted by a line of awful looking eateries that were crammed with refugees from the oversized cruise ship parked in the nearby harbour. But salvation was thankfully at hand!... More

A small and friendly restaurant opposite the municipal gardens in central Funchal. Our third visit, this time essential to book because of Carnival time and lots of hopeful diners had to be turned away. Reliable for quality of food and wine and unflappable service. Tables a little cramped, but this can add to the atmosphere, dependent on adjacent diners. Worth... More

This was a favourite when I worked in Maderia back in the eighties. It's gone up market & we visited twice in 2009 & now in 2014 was the best of all. Very attentive service and excellent food.

Large portions! They have small and large options for some dishes, for most people the small will be more than enough. We tried the leek soup which acrually tasted leek. My wife had the large version of codfishcake, even though I helped her we coul not finish it. The grilled nile perch was perfect. The salad was fresh and the... More

A nice building situated just behind the municipal park. Very friendly waiting staff but slightly disappointed with the food, my fish soup was thin and watery and really defied the description. Would be prepared to give it another go though.

We have visited this restaurant after our visit in the Madeira wine museum (the restaurant is 2 minutes away). Can absolutely recommend a parrotfish, swordfish and traditional wheat soup. Note that the bread you receive in the beginning is something that you have to pay 1.80 euro per person. Still worth it as you get fresh bread with some olives,... More

It is always a lottery to find a good place in a new town. This one was brilliant. Lovely square in front, not expensive, great atmosphere at lunchtime when there was a mix of local business people, some tourists, some locals. Good menu and we enjoyed the fish particularly. Great value for money. Good and helpful service. As in so... More
