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

Brilliant restaurant serving quality food to suit most tastes. My husband and I both had steak on our first visit which was top quality beautifully cooked and presented. On seeing other diners enjoying fish we returned another night for monk fish with prawns and we're not disappointed. We had a special welcome and the owner was very informative on their... More

Love this place and now with the sea basket attached it gives me as a non meat eater with a carnivore boyfriend a little more choice! I had snapper in prawn sauce and said boyfriend had his favourite steak on a stone , he did however say the mushroom sauce wasn't as superb as before, has the recipe been changed... More

Despite wanting to try different restaurants each night on a ten day visit to Funchal we ate here twice because it was so good. We had an outside table and there was a warm welcome from the owner. I had the most wonderfully tasty chicken livers to start then we both had fillet steaks for the mains. They were simply... More

Ate here tonight. Excellent ambiance with in & out tables. Service was outstanding and I feel that many of the other diners were regulars when visiting the island. My steak on stone was excellent as was husbands ribs. Amusing Starter - Madeiran sausage grandad style - involved BBQ of sausage in pig shaped mini BBQ at table. Good value for... More

Ate here for the first time last week-have passed it many times on previous years-now kicking myself for missing out on previous pleasures-the food,service & ambience were exceptional.My wife & I had the crepes to finish our meals & they were absolutely delicious. I ' d recommend this restaurant to anyone.

After meeting the owner in the supermarket under the restaurant who handed me his card, truly nice guy, we decided to try it out one night when it was raining so we wouldn't get soaked walking from Eden Mar. This is the only restaurant we ate in that I wish we hadn't bothered with. We ordered starters and a main... More

This is a lovely restaurant under the Eden Mar Hotel. We ate here four times. The portions are sensible (they can be too large in other places). The steaks are particularly good. We have over fifty restaurants within a 30 minute walk of our house and we've struggled for a year to get a good one. They are usually poorly... More

Having raved about this place last year we booked it for our first night this year. I must point out that one of the chefs was off work, we were not advised this prior to being seated but became evident after we waited some 50 minutes for our starter. After a further wait of some 30 minutes for our main... More
