We are in Madeira twice every year and always try to make a trip to this lovely little restaurant on the edge of the gardens. Their menu has a good selection of foods - nothing had ever disappointed us! The whole experience is good - one of the only places that actually ask if you want bread rather than just... More

During our recent fortnight in Funchal we generally ate in the old town but ventured nearer the centre to eat here after seeing it reviewed. It is near the side entrance / exit of Blandy's. The black pork was very tasty and good value, the wine was decanted and service very good generally. We were glad to get a table... More

Intimate restaurant serving straightforward and very tasty food. Reids it isn't but not for the first time we've found some of their guests eating here. Share a joke with Miguel Manuel and the girls, take an ice cold Madeira wine aperitif, fresh tuna followed by passion fruit pudding and relax ! Our favourite city centre restaurant.

The service is excellent. The food is good and the atmosphere is excellent next to the local garden and walking distance from Hotel Madeira.

We have been to Funchal many times but have never frequented this restaurant. I must say we did not know what we were missing. We had the most marvellous meal with exceptional service. I recommend booking a table as the restaurant was full all evening with diners being turned away. We wIll certainly be returning to this little gem of... More

We dined here on a recommendation and were a little disappointed. The meal was ok, but nothing special. Very little atmosphere that evening. Maybe if it was busier it would've been a better evening.

I have been eating here for the last 10 or so years and always a minimum of twice a week when I travel back to Madeira. The restaurant is always full of tourist and locals, which gives you the warm feeling that it is as good as it tastes. The food from bread at the table to your deserts are... More

Previous reviews have been a little critical but we gave it another try - glad we did as we had a far better meal this time. The waiting staff are the same - perhaps a different chef BUT my sea bass was great - saw the whole fish go into the kitchen and it was grilled to perfection - well... More

Whenever we visit Madeira, we always head for this restaurant. Never been disappointed with the food and the staff are attentive and friendly. Would advise booking if aiming for Friday/Saturday night.

Came across it by accident as it is not on a main thoroughfare but it was a great find! The food was excellent with a good choice of vegetarian dishes. The staff were very friendly and helpful plus it has a great atmosphere. The prices were very reasonable. If you want to go there it is best to book as... More
