Not eaten here before, but as it was recommended, our party of 4 decided to book and give it a try. We booked a table on the terrace but the weather looked a bit dodgy, so we settled for a table downstairs under cover. We ordered espetada (which we were told would be fillet steak) 2 mixed fish grills and... More

The taste of the dishes are a pleasure for the taste. Perfect location with nice outdoor sitting on roof the terrace, excellent service and helpful staff and food cooked on a perfect way. It's a pity we only stayed for one week otherwise we would have come back.

We chose this restaurant as it was close to where we were staying. We had booked in advance but because of its popularity and satisfied customers we had to wait quite a while past our booked time. The espetadas were cooked to perfection and very well seasoned. The staff are friendly and helpful and the owner was very apologetic about... More

To my mind this is the best restaurant in Funchal. The food is excellent and if you want it cooked or prepared in a particular way or its not on the menu you only have to ask. The staff are all very friendly and efficient, speak excellent English as well as other languages and will always give you a smile.... More

I visited the Terrace Bar in a group of 5 who all highly recommended it to me. Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner, Michael, who remembered the other 4 group members from the previous summer. The staff were very friendly, professional and well presented but still happy to have a joke with their guests. Michael was informative regarding... More

For years since first visiting Madeira we walked past this restaurant as the fish display in the window outside put us off. However, DO NOT be discouraged. A couple of years ago we decided to give it a try and were very pleasantly surprised as we discovered the beautiful terrace views over the sea that we had not been able... More

The restaurant has it all: friendly staff, nice rooftop terrace and good food for very reasonable price. We went there 3x in a week and recommend the espetada (beef on a stick) and beef on a stone served with different kinds of patatoes and vegetables
