One of the best value restaurants I have eaten in. Situated on the way down to the Lido, it is pizza/pasta based but also does fantastic salads. Their idea of a half pizza and salad dish is brilliant. A good atmosphere also with friendly efficient staff.

When we came to live on the beautiful island of Madeira we thought that, we would have to forget the pleasure of a great pizza. Never fear, we discovered this restaurant. In our opinion it is the better of the two in Funchal. Worth travelling in from the countrysixe for. We go there as often as we can. Our favourites... More

My wife and I have been holidaying in Funchal the past three years as we just love the island, it's people and not forgetting the great food. We have sampled restaurants from Funchal's Old Town and all the way to Ajuda (on the west side of Funchal) and this is the only restaurant we have returned to each year, and... More

There is nowhere better for us, as Owners at the Residents at the Porto Mare hotel, having just arrived after a long day travelling to sit & enjoy a lovely Italian food meal at this restaurant. It is our 'first choice' We have been coming here for years; they still have the same cheerful staff and the quality & freshness... More

My partner and I were staying at Pestana Palms and we had done two dives that day so were feeling exhausted. We decided we would stay local rather than heading into the centre. We were not disappointed! €2 for a bruschetta and it has been the best bruschetta I have had so far on this island. We had a pizza... More

We ate here regularly during our holiday. The waiters were brilliant...efficient and so friendly. We arranged to have my son's 5th birthday there. They made an amazing cake complete with candles and made him feel really special each visit. The food was consistently delicious each night. Can't rate highly enough. Thank you for looking after us and helping to make... More

We ate here on our first evening in Madeira after reading the fantastic reviews. We we greeted by a friendly waiter who directed us to a table - which was on the decking just outside the restaurant. We decided to dive straight into the mains - I ordered the Chicken Rissotto and my partner ordered the Pizza Pollo. The Rissotto... More

Staying nearby at the Eden Mar we decided to try this restaurant following good reviews on here, for a change of scene. Overall I have to say this is a cafe not a restaurant and probably better suited for a snack or lunch. Prices are very reasonable but the decor and situation aren't great if you're looking for anything more,... More

I really like this restaurant, the food is very good with a range of pasta & pizza and the staff are always willing to add/takeaway ingredients to suit. They added a little chilli to my chicken pasta which really made the dish for my taste. Pizzas are large & hand thrown ensuring they are fresh. After several visits over a... More
