This is the one restaurant in Funchal that I must visit, when I am in Madeira. At €39 including wine, the meal represents excellent value for money. As always, the service is immaculate, the food beautifully presented and delicious. I'll be back again, next year.

It's difficult to add something what other reviewers haven't said before, but we had a great last evening on Madeira thanks to Restaurante Do Forte. We hadn't made a reservation and tried our luck on a weekday. There were still some places left outside (without a view on the ocean) and they couldn't take us inside if it would start... More

The location had good views over the harbour we have visited it 4 times over... More

With a fixed price and very good food and attention this is a safe and wise choice to spend an evening. This location is also special in lovely Funchal.

Might seem a lot of money but be assured the food is well worth it! 6 courses including coffee and amusee bouche, each course comes with a wine to suit the dish you choose. They are very generous in topping up the wines too, so as soon as you finish the glass they are really to refill! Really enjoyed the... More

This was our final meal in Funchal and we weren't disappointed. We had the fixed package but that gave you excellent choices with wine. Great service and no nasty surprises on the bill.

Every dish is a taste bud explosion and a work of art. Incredible value at only €39 for 3 courses including a sparkling wine to start, white and red wine for starter and main and sweet Madeiran wine with dessert. The service was friendly and attentive too. Lovely setting overlooking the sea. One of the best restaurants I've ever eaten... More
