Good food, friendly staff

Ate here a couple of times because it was only a short walk from our hotel (LTI Pestana Grand). Staff and manager were really friendly. Food was excellent and reasonably priced.

This is a lively restaurant with entertainment on several nights per week. The staff are attentive and talkative with guests and Bruno and his wife Alicia works all hours to ensure people have a great meal, day or night. Try the spicy prawns or the steak on the stone. Beautifully prepared and served.

This restaurant will pick you up and take you back to your hotel. Such a friendly place. It was very busy the night we went, but we didn't have to wait to be served. They had a guy on guitar who was very good.

Had the prawns with guacamole which was delicious. Vegetables were beautifully cooked. Guitarist plays relaxing music as you dine. Best to book a table for outside though.

During our two week holiday we ate here three times and thoroughly enjoyed the food. We found a very varied menu, my husband enjoyed the fillet steak on the stone whilst my favourite was a selection of fish cooked on the stone. Would highly recommend eating here due to the quality of the food, reasonable prices and good atmosphere.

Bruno is an excellent host, food, atmosphere, music. He will also pick you up and return you to your hotel. We have been going to his restaurant since it opened. BRILLIANT. Our family will be back for the New Year.

Great place to eat for good food and atmosphere, they also have a free courtesy bus that will fetch you from hotel and return. Great as Real Canoa is a little far out from central Funchal Staff always keen to help and advise. See you again in November
