Lovely setting on the roof terrace, staff very attentive and knowledgable. Food v/good but in the round slightly let down by price. This was our most expensive meal of our weeks stay in funchal, having eaten out every evening, we felt a little bit disappointed as we tried here from a trip advisor trawl and the majority of recommendations were...

You can walk within 50 metres of this restaurant and miss it. Try not to. The place to be is the roof terrace where you can enjoy generous portions of beautifully prepared food. There is a rustic charm to the restaurant and this extends to the food. I know my starter of piri piri squid will not be to all... More

Lovely restaurant with great setting. We were seated on the roof terrace surrounded by fairy lights where we enjoyed a fabulous meal. Great selection of fresh fish and the garlic bread is an absolutely must! Staff were also very friendly and couldn't do enough to help us.

Large indoor restaurant and small outdoor garden dining areas on the ground floor with a large roof terrace for dining under the stars. The waiters are efficient but somewhat reserved, mainly due to the popularity of the place so they are kept very busy with little time for chatting. The menu is pretty much the same as in dozens of... More

We went here after reading such good reviews but I have no idea what all the hype is about. Really wanted to enjoy the food but found it difficult to find anything which was above average. I had beef stroganoff which was mostly finely chopped mushroom with over cooked beef, my Mum ordered the lamb which was also overcooked and... More
