Excellent food, brilliant friendly service and good value for money. We visited this restaurant 3 times . I had the mixed fish which was superb . My husband tried the Madeiran version of a kebab which is not for the faint-hearted as it was enormous. Everything we had was freshly cooked and lovingly prepared. A lovely spot to have lunch...

Really really good restaurant! Good portuguese food and a really good service! we had some grilled chicken piri piri and ome squid with piri piri and it was delicious! The prices are also more than correct! So if you look for a really good, casual, friendly, not too expensive restaurant, this is the right adress! Greetings and nice holidays :-)

Fantastic. Can't fault the food...or the prices...or the ambience...or the service. I can't give it six stars otherwise I would. But this place really does exemplify what is so great about this Island.

The restaurant is close to some of the big hotels west of Funchal and is very convenient for guests staying around there (Carlton / Savoy). Our Sunday evening service was quite slow and some of our waiters actively avoided conversation and eye contact. The menu has one vegetarian option (pasta and tomato sauce) but many meat and fish options (though... More

We were lucky to find this restaurant during our one week stay in Funchal and ate there on 3 evenings as it was just so good and reasonably priced. Not only is there an excellent menu choice but their food is cooked to perfection. The evenings were very relaxing as everything is cooked to order. The house wines are excellent... More

We were recommended this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. The fish is great and the beef kebab with a huge salad and French fries Is enough for two! Loved the food, the staff and the service. Well worth a visit or three.

Our first night in Funchal, We were warmly welcomed and the staff arranged a special seafood sampler for us. Wonderful food, excellent service and Madeiran folk singing as a bonus. A warm and enjoyable evening. We will return for more.

We visited this restaurant because it was convenient and because of the positive reviews. Maybe we didn't chose well but we were underwhelmed by our chicken and lamb. But to be fair the couple at the next table had a chateaubriand that did look good. So choose wisely if you go.

We tried this restaurant out because it came recommended for its fish options. We were not disappointed having tried three different varieties of fish out from the menu. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable both regarding their food offering and wine menu. A good experience.

We went twice to this restaurant which is probably one of the best if not the best of this area. The service is efficient, fast and very kind, and we felt very comfortable. We took very nice local meals, and portions were quite big ("We don't want you to call the room service when yopu are back to your hotel").
