This place is (sadly) only open in the evening. This means in the winter there is no lovely view. However the menu and service is excellent. It is actually part of Reids Hotel but separated by about 100 metres. Definitely will return....but not an "eat there every night" restaurant.

We had one of the best Italian meals we've ever had at Villa Cipriani. Perfect pasta, a comprehensive and sensibly-priced wine list, excellently attentive yet unobtrusive staff. We visited three times in one week - with a large and varied menu and ever-changing daily specials, we were spoilt for choice. A must-visit.

Reasonable food, certainly fresh and tasty, as one would expect at a high class restaurant but nothing spectacular even with upper quartile prices. Staff friendly although service patchy, was expecting more

Food and service is outstanding. Interior is very charming and simple (in the good way). Try the ravioli with salmon or the cannelloni. I have never ever tasted a cannelloni like this. Simply outstanding! For dessert have the creme brûlée with passion fruit. A mouthful of heaven - especially when accompanied by a negra mole Madeira from d'Oliveiras. Bon appetite!

On recent late break to Madeira we found that two friends were also going to be in Funchal at the same time. We all wanted to experience Reeds but we only overlapped by one day which was a Monday and this was when Reeds hold a dinner dance - not something we were very keen on.
