We had a couple of reasonable pasta dishes but far too much bread. We arrived at 8pm as the restaurant is usually quite busy by 9, service was very quick which is surprising as many of the reviews suggest otherwise. All just ok, reasonably priced.

Lovely restaurant to sit in or out on a balmy evening. We had a lovely pasta dish, plenty of it, whilst watching the sun go down. The service is great and food delicious.

We have been coming to Madeira for eight years now and always have at least one meal here and it has never disappointed us. The menu is original, the service great, the quality of the food/cooking is exceptional and the ambience good too. This should be much higher I'm the Funchal restaurant ratings than #98!

Besides the famous dining area, my short visit only allowed me to have some coffee. The staff was friendly and the service was good!

This was a quality night out for the family. The portions were not to big and not too small. There was a wide variety of dishes to choose from, vegetarian and non veggie, probably also vegan at request. All meals arrived quickly and the staff were very friendly. At one point there were 3 waiters at outer table doing fifteen... More

Nicely located on the coastline but the menu was disappointing ......... Really seems just pasta and pizza. I expected more. Italian cuisine Service was ok but food was average at best. Lastly price was expensive for what you got. Shame
