We were seated by the window, with a magnificent view over the bay of Funchal. Comfortably seated, very well looked after by the waiters, maître d' and sommelier. The food was first class, with everybody at our table taking a different dish, so we could compare. No false note ! And the proposal of the wine was excellent ! We... More

Nelson, The Restaurant Manager (whom we have known for quite some time) made us most welcome, and took us to our table, which had a fantasic evening... More

A truly memorable meal with many layers of delicious flavours. We particularly enjoyed our sweets as the combinations of ingredients definitely titillated your taste buds

Excellent food and superb service but a little grand for a family meal. Perfect for a special occasion!

Ordered the beef tenderloin with foie gras. It was tasty but not the best I've ever had. If you like banana, order the banana dessert which is quite nice.

We visited Les Faunes on the last night of our holiday and it was well worth the expense! We enjoyed a pre-dinner drink in the bar and then were taken through to the restaurant with its amazing views over the bay of Funchal. The restaurant epitomises old-fashioned comfort and service and you are made to feel like a valued guest.... More
