Just back from our hols in Funchal. This restaurant was within a few minutes walk of our apartohotel in the Lido area.. We were very impressed with the food and hospitality from Tony and staff. The fillet steak was the best we had had in a long time. Nice clean surroundings.

Wee bit disappointed. Starters, chorizo and prawns in a wine sauce were very good but I was a bit disappointed with my steak.

This restaurant is well worth a visit. Our steaks were very good indeed and the house red wine was excellent. The only downside was that there were only two waiters and they were overstretched so we had a long wait to order desserts.

We love this restaurant and make sure we go at least once during a stay but more often than not it's 3 times as the food and staff are brilliant

We ate here 2 nights and had the fillet steak with pepper sauce and salad. It is one of the best steaks we have had, cooked to our liking and value for money. The staff are very friendly and we will definitely go back when we return to Madeira next year.
