Have eaten in quite a few top rate restuarants and this is way up there for value, quality , presentation and service . To top it all the venue itself is lovely . How they can price it at 39.99 euros for 4 courses plus wines ( topped up at each course ! ) is amazing . Staff are very... More

We booked this restaurant for our wedding dinner. The place is beautiful, and the views are amazing. We were served by Christopher, very friendly and nice guy. Jolelne was organizing everything for us, including the classic car pick up from our apartment to the church and around Funchal with photographer to take pictures. Jolene is very organized and we highly... More

This belongs to the same chain as Mozart restaurant just around the corner with a similar formula. It is in an old fort. The tables are beautifully set out, and the 39 EU menu is excellent value, as it includes your courses of wine. All of the dishes are fresh and artistically presented. If you reserve early, you will get... More

My only regret it that having visited Madeira for over 12 years we only found it last year. Since then we go at least twice every holiday and have also enjoyed their optional Vintage Car collection from our residence to the venue. The 39Euro A La Carte deal is amazing value and the presentation of all the dishes worth taking... More

We visited Do Forte for the first time 3 years ago and were determined to repeat the experience on this holiday. 39 Euros for full A La Carte and wine to accompany each course is an excellent deal. We ate inside, the service was excellent and the food was beautiful. My husband said it was 'out of this world!' A... More

My husband and I made two visits to the Forte whilst we were in Madeira. The first Friday the weather wasn't too good and although we had asked to be seated outside, we were given the option to eat inside, which we decided to do. Service and food was excellent on both visits. Although the restaurant was very busy the... More

From our arrival till we left the staff could not have been more attentive and helpful. The food tho good was a little old fashioned in presentation. Ditch the glass plates!

We have visited the restaurant every year for the past 7 years and each year it maintains the high standards that it originally set for us. The menu option of 39 Euros with full A La Carte and wine all evening is great value. The quality of the food is excellent and the presentation on the plate is exquisite. Always... More

The fort is the one restaurant that you can go back to year after year in Funchal and it will deliver the same good food, great atmosphere and fantastic value. It is simply the best restaurant for all round service and quality despite the trip advisors reviews which somehow put a restaurant with only 107 reviews in front of a... More
