I really like the Cipriani but my husband didn't like it the first time several years ago and the same applied this visit. The terrace is beautiful but weather not warm enough so sat inside. My starter of oyster mushrooms was delightful as was the pumpkin risotto. My husband chose badly so it was his problem! Quite pricey but nice... More

I ate here on one evening. My first night so I have maybe had travel hangover (23rd Feb). This purports to be an Italian Restaurant. Why I ask myself are we not in Portuguese Madeira? It is in the grounds of Reid's Hotel. The menu was boring, the service was slow slow slow, the food was only reasonable. I had... More

From the moment you enter this restaurant you know you are somewhere special. The whole atmosphere - the decor, redolent of a 1930's five-star hotel (of which it is a part); the attentive, friendly and knowledgeable staff; the food and the service. All class. You need to book in advance, and ask for a table either on the terrace or,... More

A superb restaurant and part of the Belmond Reid Place next door. We ate there 4 or 5 times during our stay at Reids and we gave the menu a jolly good going over - I tried most of the dishes of which the Cannelloni, for me, was the best and which Michael Winner would have described as 'histrionic'! We... More

Thank you to the Villa Cipriani for very lovely and memorable evening. We went there for my birthday last week and found the staff to be very charming and the food excellent including the lovely birthday cake. We really couldn't fault anything. This is certainly a place to visit if you require good food and pleasant atmosphere. We have no... More

Having eaten here before and whilst expensive have always had good food, this time was a disappointment. There was no Amuse Bouche and both our starters and main course's very average. Given the cost we will give it a miss on future. They will have to raise their game in future with other restaurants now better and cheaper. See my... More

Villa Cipriani is a beautifully presented room, with a conservatory and, in season, an outside terrace. The welcome is warm and the menu attractive. It is very popular with the well heeled visitors to Funchal, and you should book well ahead to get a table with a sea view. Our first visit, which we initially enjoyed, was marred by very... More
