Les Faunes was closed for a short time and has now been refurbished and re-launched with a new menu as William's, named after the founder of the hotel, William Reid.

Reminded me a bit of the Savoy or Simpsons in London; the lamb from the trolley was probably the best I have tasted. Such nice service from really genuine people

First of all, the whole experience of staying at the reid's is unforgettable. And the restaurant is also marvellous. Luxurious ambiance, perfect staff, dressed in traditional and upper scale way. The food is very well prepared, very nice, tasteful, but it goes to a traditional style and is not surprising. However, I insist on the whole experience. Unforgettable. Somewhat overpriced,... More

A quite pretentious attempt at fine dining at very high prices even for the overpriced Reids. A very average meal with no say over which vegetables are served from a menu you do not see in advance of booking. Service was amateurish on occasions which was a surprise.the views were superb. Had to wait 30 minutes after the meal for... More

Les Faunes is the restaurant within the famous Reids Hotel in Funchal. Steeped in its illustrious past, one feels that the restaurant relies more on its historical reputation than its current standing, with a setting and furnishings and ambiance more in keeping with the last century than this. The servers are all middle-aged male liveried flunkies giving the impression of... More

I had dinner here on one evening. The menu was not very adventurous. The service was good but not spectacular. The view is wonderful. For what is provided I think it was expensive.

This was our third trip to Rieds and this year we celebrated my husbands birthday with a meal at Les Faunes. As with every other aspect of this fantastic hotel nothing could be faulted. We were seated at a table with a panoramic view over Funchal, the waiting staff were attentive and friendly and the food was amazing. In celebration... More

One of the restaurants at Reids. A beautiful room with excellent views of the town and the harbour. The food and service was very good - not chea,p but you get what you pay for - and we did. Very enjoyable

Like the rest of Reids Hotel, the Faune has stunning views. The welcome and table service is very friendly, and the tables well spaced. The menu appeared to have no vegetarian options, but when we enquired, an extensive vegetarian menu was brought. The cooking was good, not memorable, and we had some quite excellent wines from the extensive and reasonably... More
