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

Nice restaurant on the first floor - beautifully decorated. Next door to Quinta da Penya de Franca. Fettucini with prawns and salmon excellent.

Nice staff and outside terrace. Vegetable soup was uninspired. It had passed the blender and was just a brown fluid. Tasted little, needed a lot of salt + pepper. Not impressed by seafood pasta, either. A decent amount of seafood. Lots of cream. Plain, seemed like the chef had opted for the easy way and poured on a lot of... More

Are here due to the good TA reviews. We were greeted by a surly bald waiter who did not crack a smile. We were shown up to the roof terrace which is very nice. I ordered the sea bream which was lovely. My wife had the lasagne which was nice, and my two boys had ravioli and chicken with mushroom,... More

We ate here 3 times during our short holiday in a Funchal. As always, the fish dishes are the best here. The seafood soup is a joy. The espada with Spanish sauce is also excellent. The setting on the high balcony is spectacular. The prices are reasonable for the quality of the food. Some nights the €16 menu (at other... More

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...

Having searched through a few of the restaurants on trip advisor for Funchal we decided to give it a go, it's a little out of the way to find but still within easy walking distance of where we were staying (The Vine) Very friendly and attentive staff just the right pace on the service and the food was superb, the...
