We have just returned from 2 weeks in Funchal; we ate out every every evening and therefore had the opportunity to compare several restaurants. We dined at Villa Cipriani during the first week, and enjoyed the experience immensely - so we rebooked for the middle of the second week. On our second visit, we had a table overlooking the cliffs... More

Stayed at Reid's who recommended them for casual dinner. They had better Italian food than I have eaten in other places, including Italy. Service was superb, and they read their customers well.

Having visited two years a go my husband and I were delighted to dine here again. After our first visit, this time, we decided to book a further meal for later on in our stay.

Great meal here after cocktails at Reids. Usual attentive Italian service - very professional. Good food and excellent wine recommendations. Stunning views from balcony. Thanks to Umberto for offering to customize any dish for my daughters! Highly recommended.

4 stars is a little harsh, but 5 stars wouldn't be representative. The location and views from Villa Cipriani are great, perched up on the cliffs looking back down the coast to the old town. Susannah, who took our reservations, greeted us when we arrived and came to see during the meal, was brilliant; very friendly and welcoming. I had... More

Last year my wife and I went to this restaurant and I sent the Tagliata back because it was over cooked. A poor night. My wife wanted to go again tonight. It could not be the same again! I sent it back twice this time. The first time the same one was brought back again because the kitchen said it... More

This is my favourite restaurant in the world. The food is fabulous, the views are absolutely amazing and the service is first class (Tony is fabulous). Yes it's more expensive but you get what you pay for. You must go to this restaurant when visiting Madeira.

I couldn't believe there was a Cipriani in Madeira. Once I got word I rushed to get a reservation and was thoroughly impressed. The food and the service was impeccable, and very glad I came. Does not fall short from the Cipriani name even though it is in the middle of no where. Very Impressive!

The dining experience here is very good. The food is very good, the view on the terrace is fantastic. I note that a few reviewers moaned that when it was the dark they could not see the view. Which made me laugh, as if they want to see the view then dine earlier! All of our food was very good,... More

The most perfect setting on the terrace overlooking the bay, provided the weather allows that is! Watching the moonlight on the sea as the swifts race along the cliff face is only enhanced by the delightful staff and wonderful food. This is always an evening to look forward to whether as a couple wanting romantic time out or with friends.... More
