We ate there the first day and were so charmed with everything that we went back the second day to find out if it was incidental. It was not! This place is really worthwhile visiting. The propel who welcome you, the atmosphere, the location itself, it was all outstanding. And of course the food. We could chose exactly how we... More

Have visited this restaurant a number of times in the last couple of years and am very impressed. The food is delicious (flambeed bananas particularly good!) and everything is nicely presented without being pretentious. The staff are helpful and friendly. Despite the new pricing our meal was still one of the more expensive ones we had in Funchal but it... More

We visited twice during our 1 week stay and both times were really pleased with the service, food, and atmosphere. They even remembered us from our first visit, which was 4 days before, so that was really nice. After the meal they brought out a drink called poncha, which I couldn't drink as I'm pregnant but on our second visit,... More

We found this restaurant on your site and decided it was worth a visit.We didn't book as it was midweek and had no problem getting a table. The menu choice was very good and they do a special meal deal which we took advantage of. We placed our order and unfortunately then had to wait 1 hour for our main... More

This restaurant moved when the old Savoy was knocked down. However lots of the Royal Savoy guests now make the short journey to this superb restaurant in its new location. The food here is excellent and very reasonably priced. Well worth a visit. Seating is inside or out - so maybe on a chilly evening take a wrap or arrange... More

We first looked in here on Saturday night after a recommendation but the restaurant was nearly empty so we went elsewhere as it looked to lack atmosphere. We returned on Monday night and it was somewhat busier so we gave it a try. We had the €26.50 3 course menu which included 1 bottle of wine between two people and... More
