Fabulous Staff - average food

Such a lovely welcome and stunning views of Funchal Bay. Food is pretty average and a tad on the expensive side - having said that - the bread soup was amazing

Being part of the Ocean Gardens Hotel complex, my wife and I ate there twice during the week we were there. On both occasions, I couldn't get past the fish stew - absolutely yummy! My wife had a fillet steak, so big she couldn't finish it and it was prepared exactly as she asked for it. The service was also... More

We stayed at the hotel this restaurant is attached to so we ate here the first night as we had travelled all day. The place is expensive for what it is, there are better places in Funchal at a fraction of the cost. The have a large wine cellar that they think is a big attraction, however, the wines are... More

What a tremendous location, setting and view, wow but what a shame the food didn't match. We were there last Saturday lunchtime. The staff tried really hard and were very pleasant but the food was pretty average and expensive plus there was no atmosphere as, until 10 minutes before we left we were the only four people in the whole...

I have been in Funchal several times by cruise ship and every time "la montanha" has been our favourite place where to eat..the aspect that I really love there is the meat, perfectly cooked and really tasty!! Then you can appreciate the special typical fruits of the island while sitting outside and staring at the amazing view from the top... More

The bolo do caco was fenomenal however didnt find the rest of the food that appealing. The acorda soup was very oily and the octopus salad was slighly stale. The beef skewers were... More

I first came to this restaurant in 1998 when it was highly recommended by a local. I managed to trace it down again six years later, in 2004, and then found it again instantaneously during my third visit to magical Madeira in August 2011. The restaurant is part of the Ocean Gardens Hotel but seems to be frequented mainly by... More
