The location is amazing

Came here for a meal when staying at the Belmond Reid Hotel in Funchal. We were sat outside on the terrace and the views are superb. You would generally have to book but we went quite early so managed to get a table. The service was spot on and the food was very good. I would definitely... read more

I have been wanting to have dinner in this restaurant for quite a long time but somehow we never did manage it until this year. It was definitely worth the wait; the food, especially the Risotto, was truly excellent! The staff was very attentive & friendly and the view from the terrace was perfect!

The staff were great and very friendly, helpful. It does still have a higher end feel rather than a bistro. Fantastic view and delicious food. With a bottle of wine, two appetizers, two mains and one desert we paid EUR 190. Would definitely recommend, such a fantastic atmosphere. Recommend going before the sun sets to enjoy the view.

Very good italian restaurant, very nice view from the terrace. The risotto was excellent. Quite expensive but it's worth it.

We had a wonderful meal here while on holiday in Funchal. A fabulous restaurant with excellent food. Friendly courteous staff who put themselves out to accommodate us after we missed our reservation. Special thanks to Marcelino Rodrigues. Looking forward to returning but obviously on the right evening next time.. Thank you.

This is a top drawer restaurant, with fine dining and 5 star service. The views over the bay towards Funchal are stunning and this is a highly recommended restaurant for either people not on a budget or for a one off special occasion - well worth a visit. The house wine is excellent as well as the food.

The food is really very good and delicious. The only problem is the staff that tends to be too nice and comes along asking if you want this and that etc. it's a bit annoying. Otherwise the place is great with extremely good food and the view over the Marina is awesome.
