Do not be put off by the appearance of this restaurant and its location above the supermarket. The service is excellent and the food is always reliably delicious. Reservations are advised as it is popular with those of us making repeat visits! The steaks are really tasty and tender and all the other traditional Madeira favourites do not disappoint. There...

Found this restaurant last year, and vowed to come back this year. We did, and were not disappointed. All the traditional dishes are on offer, but the food is all excellent. The steak on the stone is high quality food not to be missed. Last year we reserved a table outside on the balcony as the weather was hot. This... More

We always look forward to returning to this restaurant. Unlike others it is fully lit and looks a bit like a cafe but don't be fooled, the food and welcome is the best! As always I have Granny 's fish pie ( not called that but they know what you mean). It is delicious and something you won't get anywhere... More

Tony's restaurant continues to deliver a superb dining experience under the auspices of his son Elliot. The maître d' is still Alberto who makes sure everything runs to order. If I want a fillet steak medium to well done, that is what I am served. Just a hint of pink. The beef is sourced specially from the Azores and the... More

We have visted this restaurant a few times when visiting Madeira each year. Yes it's hidden away, overlooks a car park but forget all that and enjoy the best steak ever. Tone & the staff always very welcoming and I wouldn't miss it for anything.

We paid our first visit to this restaurant on 17 October not expexting too much given that it is hidden away in tbe corner above a supermarket. Wow, what a fabulous surprise. The fillet steak was cooked exactly as I asked for, the pepper sauce came in it's own little sauce boat and was divine. The wine was good and... More

We've been coming to Madeira for 6 years and never had a bad meal. This place was recommended to us, and what a lovely recommendation it was! I have eaten some good steak from all over the world, but we all said the fillet on the stone was the best steak we have ever tasted! The owner, Tony, was courteous,... More

Enjoyed the steak on a stone - quality fillet steak - worth the visit...The restaurant could be so much better with a little more attention to service and a little more subtlety; my parma ham and melon just needed presenting properly and with a little more finesse. Our experience of Funchal restaurants suggests that such niceties make all the difference;... More
