The ambiance of this restaurant outside overlooking the Atlantic is stunning in itself, add to the fact that the service is fantastic and the food is superb and you have yourself a really lovely dining experience. OK the prices are a more expensive than many restaurants in Funchal but take my word for it, for a special occasion you will... More

We began our holiday dining here on our first evening in Madeira at the Villa Cipriani and it was simply fantastic. In fact it was so good we dined here on another two occasions. Tonight was our last evening in Madeira & we chose the Villa Cipriani & once again we were not disappointed. The service from the Maître d... More

For afters the Taramsai simply light... More

This is a great Italian Restaurant with the service you expect being linked to Reids Palace. The staff were so attentive without feeling too much. My wife is a vegetarian and they made a special meal of her liking and taste. They have a great cellar and menu choice. There are fantastic views with a great setting. Recommend for a... More

Being fed up of the all inclusive wine and set menus and unable to do the afternoon tea we ate here last night. AMAZING. The view was breathtaking although we didn't eat until 9:30 so it went dark quickly. The service was lovely! I loved it so much I'm going back on my last night. This isn't cheap and was... More

The late TV Chef Keith Floyd would have enjoyed this place (he may have done so?): Intelligent and informal, in a going-on-safari loose linens and summer shoes way. Maitre d’ is gallant and engaging, whist the waiting staff are measured, calm, professional. The cliff-top view is simply stunning, slim iron railings separating the forward tables from the sheer drop to... More

Had an amazing dinner (as always). We have dinner there every time we are in Funchal. Food excellent and the staff is really attentive. If you're in Madeira, you have to go to Villa Cipriani.

Very disappointing meal. Had the lobster linguine and it was very average. The lobster sauce was tasteless with no depth of flavour at all. The only redeeming feature quite honestly was the stunning view from the terrace.
