We have been going to Funchal for many years and each time we have walked past this restaurant with only a glance at the menu. We decided to try it for our dinner last Saturday and WOW what a delight. We chose the mix and match menu which was a choice of each of starter, main course and dessert plus... More

This is the second year we have visited Funchal and once again returned to this restaurant five times over our two week holiday, beating last years visit by one. You are always warmly welcomed on arrival and the food is of excellent quality and cooked fresh. The house red is really good value for money along with the extensive menu.... More

This restaurant is virtually opposite the Solar da Ajuda in the Lido area. Take a right turning by a Spa shop and go up the steep hill and find it on the right hand side of the road. What a fabulous meal. We started with a glass of bubbly (complimentary) and then we both chose the Sea Bass dish which... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by a friend and it didn't disappoint, so much so we went twice. Food and service were excellent and waiters very friendly.

We last visited two years ago, returned a few days ago and are pleased to report that the owners have retained their high standards. They did not have the wine we chose from the menu but the one recommended (Marques de Borba, from Alentejo) was excellent. Three of us ordered the mango with shrimps in tomato tartare to start followed... More

This restaurant is not the most attractive from the outside but is comfortable and plainly set out inside. There is a reasonable menu choice and the food is well prepared and cooked. Whilst not top gourmet standard this is nevertheless a very good tourist restaurant and represents good value. The staff were friendly and efficient and complementary madeira was appreciated....

Visiting Madeira with friends who go there regularly we were lucky enough to draw on their past experiences when dining out. This restaurant is one of their favourites and now we know why. From the friendly welcome to the cheery goodbye, nothing is too much trouble. A complimentary drink while browsing the menu was a very nice and welcome touch.... More
