This was the second holiday where we have dined at this restaurant, have now eaten here four times, and each meal has been very enjoyable. They do special deals, three courses for 20 euros or for 26 euros you get a bottle of wine and water in addition to the food. The food really is excellent and the portions are... More

This was undoubtedly the best restaurant we tried on our recent holiday in Funchal. At first glance the menu appeared to be a little expensive but then we saw the three course menu which came with a bottle of wine and a bottle of water for 26.5 Euros. You order off the a la carte menu but some of the... More

After several visits to this restaurant I can honestly say I have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and imaginatively presented. The staff are attentive and friendly, the location is lovely and inside or outside dining is available. I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation.

Had a lovely meal here on our last night and were not disappointed! The food, service and value were very good and I wouldn't hesitate to return. We went on a Sunday night and it was quite busy and were just lucky to get a table outside. Give this restaurant a visit for some fabulous food!

Wow, what a dreadful experience - 7 of us dined here last week. Waited over an hour for a drink and then another for a starter. Appeared only to have two members of staff who definitely could not cope. We have dined here many times before so knew that the food was good, but this was not the case on... More

Like some other reviewers, I can't understand why this amazing restaurant isn't more busy. It was our favourite when we last visited Madeira two years ago. Having returned to this wonderful island, we visited L'Osteria again last night..... and we weren't disappointed! Fantastic food and great service - it really has a touch of class. I really can't rate it... More

What a fabulous meal we had last week and we have been back tonight and in no way disappointed. If you have tried the Forte, Mozarts, Armazen etc then this place will satisfy your taste buds if you love excellent food served with a touch of class. Please, take a short walk up the gentle incline to L'Osteria and reward... More

L'Osteria remains one of our favourite restaurants in the Funchal area. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced. The service is always friendly and the atmosphere relaxed, so I am a little perplexed as to why it is not busier. However, having considered the matter and having thought what initially attracts me to other establishments, I believe it might... More

We booked for the wife's birthday last month, 10 of us, the tables was set up to the side of the restaurant, and for a small charge we had flowers on the table plus a bouquet for the wife. Then as we had booked for 10 people, yes, a birthday cake to finish the evening. We all had different meals,... More

We returned to L'Osteria (16/08) after several visits in 2013. The service and food was just as good as ever. The 3 course menu at 20 euros per person was excellent value. We will return again during this holiday. The only disappointing thing is that the restaurant is never very busy. This is a shame. If in Madeira we would... More
