The Hidden Gem indeed!!!

I had no intention of going here as it didn't' look too inspiring from the outside and there is a bit of competition nearby. Boy was I glad we gave it a chance after reading the reviews here. Firstly, many of the menus are identical in Madeira and especially in the Lido area. This was the only one... read more

Visited L'Osteria recently where we had main courses, two fish (scabbard) and two chicken with almond filling. Food good quality without being exceptional and service was also very good. Worth a visit.

Excellent food, friendly service, nice and quiet terrace. Not in the main street and not that visible, but definitely worth the short walk. Fish is very good.

We are here a few nights ago and were really impressed. The restaurant is situated up a hill near the Four views monumental hotel but it is well the effort. The service is good and the waiter is quietly efficient and friendly. We both had steaks which so tender and full of flavour vthey came with a selection of fresh... More

We ate here twice during our recent trip to Funchal and we found all the food we had to be very good and well presented. I enjoyed the sea bream which came with boiled potatoes, green beans & carrots but the steak was the best meal. I was worried when they didn't give me a steak knife but I cut... More

Booked based on TA reviews. Located not far from the Lido / Eden Mar. Small and intimate although maybe booked a bit early at 7 as we were only people there till 7.30/8.00 but food excellent and let host choose wine based on some parameters and very good mainland wines. Food is a mix of Italian / Greek but with... More

In a surprisingly relaxed atmosphere a few meters from passing cars on the road, this restaurant sported exquisite food at a sensible price. They have a 3 course menu where you chose from the a la carte, and pay a total of €20, of €27 including the house wine. We only had a main course and a dessert, but probably... More

I picked this based on TA reviews. When we arrived the place was not full. We were shown to our table outside. All good so far. We were given menus and off we went. No order of drinks or bread but let's see? The waiter came and took the order for everything. The wine came and the water came but... More
