Amazing location on top of steep cliffs overlooking Funchal. Superb service and table. Loved the lobster linguini and special birthday cake which was a lovely surprise. Service attentive but not too intrusive. A well oiled machine with a clear pride on providing a great product.

We have never been disappointed with the qualitty of the food or of the service that is provided. It may seem expensive by Madeiran standards but not if you judge... More

On the final day of our Madeira trip we chose the Villa Cipriani for dinner. And it was a true highlight. The difference between a good and a great restaurant is that the whole evening is pure indulgence while you can just lay back and enjoy yourself. Nothing annoys or bothers you. You don't have to care about anything. This... More

I am a big fan if cipriani's restaurants around the world and this one didn't disappoint as well. Really beautiful and romantic setting overlooking the cliffs and the ocean. Service was great and food was delicious. They have a nice wine list and I was very happy with the experience.

Enjoyed an excellent dinner in delightful surroundings. We hadn't booked but still got a lovely table on the terrace. Pleasant staff and good unobtrusive service. A treat if you are stay in Funchal.

We ate here four times during our week on Madeira. Every evening was idyllic, with gorgeous food, exquisite, accommodating service and the amazing view over the ocean and Funchal. Eating here was the highlight of our holiday. The portions are quite generous - as we were very active during the day, that was exactly what we wanted. Also, there is... More

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.
