Consistently the best restaurant in Madeira. We had visited this restaurant a couple of years ago on our anniversary still as good. Great food, great service and another great evening. It's a shame there are no restaurants near us in England with this sort of concept, and at an all in price of £31 or less.

we found that the fixed price all inclusive 3 course meal at 39 Euros (including wine)very good value and of a fine qulaity. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, and went a long way to make the evening a success. The only negative was that the majority of the tables are in a lean to area which only just... More

Good deal at fixed €39 with lots of courses and drinks included. It was good, but bear in mind that even though the restaurant is right by the sea, only about 3 tables have a sea view because of the walls. Food was good, but not so sophisticated and the service i would say lacked a little style. Getting attention... More

A great fun place to go for dinner. 39 euros get you 3 course meal with sample tasting between courses and continual topping up of wine. We enjoyed the evening so much we went again. Same menu but plenty of choice. Can eat inside or outside to the sound of waves breaking on to the rocks.

Gofor the fixed price deal for 39 euros and eat some excellent food and the service is impeccable, if a little rushed at first. Doesnt get five stars because the restaurant is a lean to conservatory and with a low ceiling it gets very warm. And surprisingly, they serve you too much wine! But it's worthwhile as long as you...

A well located restaurant that has style but is not pretentious. The quality and presentation of the food is very good and with very acceptable wine at reasonable prices. Good value for money

We had heard excellent recommendations and booked. The atmosphere in the restaurant was sterile, it lacked atmosphere. The food and wine were good but on a par with a sister restaurant nearby. The presentation of the food lacked the artistry we had elsewhere two nights before. Our experience didn't live up to expectations and no we won't be going back... More

This is my favourite restaurant in Madeira. 39 euros for a five course meal including wine is a bargain for a wonderful fine dining experience. The menu is amazing, we went three times on this holiday because I want to try everything on the menu. Went to the forte last year and the sister restaurant Mozarts. As much as I... More

My family have a timeshare in Funcahl so we return to our beloved Madeira year after year and have tried a large number of the very good range of restaurants on offer. We have very Catholic tastes in terms of dining genres but on occasion we like to be more formal and go to a restaurant where they really know... More

Best restaurant in Funchal. Every course looks scrummy, tastes even better and you want to come back several times to try everyone else's choices. Went twice in our hol and would have gone more often but would end up putting on too much weight! Service was good and attentive and we were certainly not rushed. Better than Armagem, which has...
