Made to feel very welcome, food started out really good, presentation was lovely, my main of sea bass fillets were very small and full of bones which detracted away from the rest of the meal, to be fair they reduced the price and tried to make amends, but it was spoilt by this and the chef should have known not...

We've been coming to Madeira for 10 years, one of the great pleasures being the hundred's of superb dining options. This restaurant has to be the best we have ever eaten in in terms of food quality, atmosphere and staff. The staff deserve a special mention .... they are full of fun but also knowledgeable and endlessly helpful. The whole... More

Stumbling across this restaurant was the best thing we had done! The welcome was lovely! The staff are very friendly! We chose a table and started to peruse the menu, I chose the king prawns in garlic to start followed by the traditional beef skewers, the other half had the prawns and avocado followed by the hot stone mixed meats!...

After three visits almost felt like one of the family. Excellent local food at modest prices. 10% reduction for regular customers (this week anyway). Live music until about 21.30.

Bruno and his staff make this restaurant experience a great night out! The service is always excellent. Steak on the stone is the best I have eaten, succulent and very tasty! We look forward to returning again and again.

We read reviews of this restaurant on trip advisor and decided to give it a go after some pretty average meals on our holiday in Funchal. Although we had not booked we were found a table even though it was a busy Saturday night. We were made welcome by the restaurants friendly staff. Although we did not order starters were... More

We were very impressed. Very nice waiters, very good food, and guitar playing in the background. To top it off they drove my mom and dad home with no extra charge. We had the traditional skewed meat and the mixed fish on stone. The fish was made on the stone on the table, very impressive. We were promised 10 percent... More

This is our favourite go to place to eat for several years now. Bruno and his staff are so friendly and the food is terrific. It is a good evening out, you are never rushed in order that they can have your table for someone else. You can stay for hours enjoying the company and the live music. Everyone is... More

The first visit to Bruno's retaurant was fantastic with very engaging staff and high quality local specialities including the lovely scabbardfish with banana. Very attentive and conversational service really made you feel at home so much that we returned several days later and received a similar experience. The food the second time wasn't quite as good but overall still great... More
