Despite 8 previous trips to Madeira we had never been to Real Canoa or even the same area. I have to admit my mother-in-law suggested we try it as she had been told they offered a free collection and return service, although I wondered how good it could be if they had to offer that! Well I was completely wrong!... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant on 24th September. Very busy that night but food and service was excellent and staff very friendly. The steak was very tender and just melted in my mouth. My wife had the three meats on the stone which were also very tender. An excellent evening with live music at a reasonable level... More

This appeared to be a very popular restaurant and reservations are recommended. What made this place for us was the atmosphere. The waiting staff are charming with a great sense of humour and they know how to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. They were attentive without being overly so and they enhanced the dining experience. There was also some... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a couple of fellow travellers but unfortunately, we must have chosen a bit of an off night. We had quite a long wait for all the courses and when they arrived we were not best pleased. The owner was apologetic but did not see fit to go any further.

I visited this restaurant last week as the reviews were good - I was very disappointed- the chicken was cooked in front of us by a most scary waitress who never smiled - to my taste the chicken was over salted and inedible - although I was not charged for the meal - and they were willing to cook me...

You really have to book in advance for this restaurant. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The food is excellent and well presented. All the extras were a good touch. Well worth a visit.

Ate here twice during our stay as it was the closest restaurant to the Pestana Grand where we were staying. The food was good and reasonably priced. Our main problem was the fact that they cram as many diners in as possible. In this sense they are victims of their own success. If eating outside (under an awning) it could... More

After reading all the fantastic reviews on trip advisor,my hubby and I decided to go on our last night in Funchal for dinner. We had originally booked for the 2 of us but after telling another couple who we had become friends with that we were going, called to alter the reservation. We had a fantastic meal of chicken/filet steak... More
