We booked one of the open topped vintage cars from our hotel to the restaurant - a fun journey for us and the people who waved to us! (Only a few Euros more than a taxi). Jolene greeted us at the restaurant and took some photos of us inside and next to the car. We went inside and had a... More

We visited this restaurant in August 2014. We didn't book so couldn't get one of the scarce sea view tables but got a table in the courtyard. After a shakeup start where we didn't get menus, after that the service was spot on. They were attentive and the food delivery was well pace so you could take time to relax... More

Our third visit to the Forte and second golden package. This one was to celebrate with my wife, her brother and his wife's wedding anniversary and his birthday. From the moment we picked up from our apartment to the moment we dropped off we all had an excellent time. All those that played a part in our evening were brilliant.... More

39€ for a 5• dining experience. Set on the battlements of the Fort in Funchal Old Town. Great relaxed atmosphere, make sure you get 'window' seat to take in the spectacular view otherwise you will be looking at a stone wall. I cannot explain the quality of the food and how it is presented, it is the best. For your... More

Visited her last week for our wedding anniversary. We were picked up in a vintage car from our hotel and had a fantastic meal. The wine was nice and we had a lovely time. Unfortunatly when we arrived we were told that we didnt need to book our return journey in the car and to simply let the waitress know... More

In The center of old town and with sea view (between forte's spiers). I think that the owner is the same of restaurant Goya and also here you can select the menu a 39€. High quality food (also for the meat) but the problem is the vine... The red is decent... But the white not appropriate... Maybe is better ask... More

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for visiting our Restaurant Do Forte too. I am glad you enjoyed your dinner. In what concerns the quality of the white wine you could always ask and we would try to organise something that would encounter our palate. Or if you prefer we have the option for only 29€ without the drinks included... More

We have visited this restaurant three times before and it continues to impress. We booked a week before in order to obtain stunning outdoor seating on a warm summers evening. The seven courses and seven glasses of wine where excellent. The all inclusive price of just 39 euros is very good value for money. The company who own it have... More

This was our second visit to this fabulous restaurant and we were equally impressed this time. The concept menu for 39Euros per head is definitely value for money. The choice of food is good and the paired wines delicious and plentiful. Great service and lovely ambience. Book ahead to avoid disappointment.
