One has to be honest when writing a review. We have been out for dinner twice at Cipriani during our holidays and the restaurant really benefits from its superb location. The food is average when comparing to other Italian restaurants with the same standard of prices so think they should take it to a higher level, even when they're sure... More

We called in on the off chance as it was close to our hotel and I had read some good reviews about it. Lovely food, fantastic staff, lovely table outside overlooking the coast line. As I've said, not cheap but well worth a visit.

The service, food and setting is excellent as you would expect from a restaurant attached to Reids Palace Hotel. Providing its a warm night reserve a table on the balcony overlooking the sea. Views to die for. Not a cheap place to eat at but so worth it for that special occasion. Word or warning, I don't know if they... More

Can only give a great review of this restaurant. Having a table on the edge looking over the sea was really good. The choice of food, service and quality was excellent and we will definitely return (probably in a few nights time). I would advise to book in advance as it is a very popular place to eat.

The service we found to be excellent, offerings of more bread and refilling our glasses constantly. Very nice view and atmosphere. I wouldn't call the food brilliant, it was very nice although potentially a little expensive and I felt could have been better. Still a very nice restaurant, with great service, great view and enjoyable food

If you want to share a very special meal in idyllic settings, then Villa Cipriani has to be the place. The food, service and views are superb and is why we returned there on our second visit to Madeira.

First the positive: The view is beautiful. The restaurant was not very busy but the service was awful. Felt like we were being ignored. No one came to refill our bread or water glasses (5.50 euros for the bottle of still water!). My wife had one of the specials, which was OK. I had the duck, which was salty and... More
