Overblown, under performing, "fine" dining

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... read more

Great atmosphere , excellent service . Would recommend the seafood risotto . Passion fruit creme brûlée was a little weird but found refreshing . Pricey compared with other restaurants in the vicinity , but couldn't fault . Would definitely go back .

It's been a year since our last visit and we enjoyed great service, food & wine here. Sometimes it's good to visit a restaurant that has traditional values and it's here at the Cipriani. If you have the chance, treat yourselves as I don't think you'll regret it. Would recommend you reserve a table as it does get really busy.

Wow -- We have a time share and this restaurant will be an annual event. The service is second to none and the food was delicious. The restaurant is connected to Reid's Palace so you can expect the best

Top high-end Italian restaurant. Probably best in town. Even if very busy they were flexible on change requests (e.g. “transforming” dishes into vegetarian versions etc). Highly reecommended.

The food was delicious, with plenty of choice for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. The staff were friendly and helpful, and we had a lovely dinner here to celebrate my sister's birthday.

We went there twice it was so good. After two weeks in Portugal we wanted a break from fish and this was it. Service was terrific and the food outstanding. Next door to Reid's Palace, which owns this restaurant.

7 of us attended for our friends' birthday celebration. Food excellent, Lots of variety in all the courses. The Manager went out of his way to organise a very tasty gluten-free vegetarian starter and main course for my Coeliac husband.This was followed by a very generous gesture of tasty GLUTEN-FREE birthday cakes.The service was excellent.
