Just made our second visit to L'Osteria on this holiday. The quality of the cooking is so consistent, you just cannot find fault. Truly amazed that this restaurant is not rated the best in Funchal. We will return several more times before going home after this holiday.

We had hoped to sit outside. But sadly too cool. Inside did not have much atmosphere. We had very pleasant meal, although the added costs of couvert and coffea meant it actually cost Euro 35 a head. Nice menu and. Notice and staff v pleasant

We came upon this place simply because it was one of the nearest to our hotel. What a find though. It was just right for informal dining with great food. The restaurant is mainly outside on a lovely terrace. The staff were friendly and attentive and they took time to explain what the various options were. The food we chose... More

We found this charming little restaurant on our last night in Funchal. We so wish it had been on our first as we would certainly have returned. The food was immaculately cooked and presented and the ambiance struck just the right balance between formality and informality, and we enjoyed the modern Portuguese music playing in the background. There was plenty... More

This is one of the places we visit at least twice during our holiday. The food is consistently excellent, wonderfully presented and reasonably priced. The wine is always good too. This restaurant should be further up the list!

I have been eating here on a regular basis since this restaurant opened about 5 years ago. In that time I have been served nothing but excellent food and wine. Obviously they always use good ingredients but what they do with these especially the sauces used in the preparation make the difference. Consistently one of the best places to eat.

Just returned to this wonderful restaurant, on a fine warm October Saturday evening, along with about 40 other people. We both enjoyed the special offer of any 3 courses off the Al-carte menu including wine and water, each of us had different choices, 6 items plus a local rum flavoured drink to clean the palette and a chocolate to finish,...

Having been to Funchal many times I have walked past this restaurant on many occasions. Why haven't I eaten there before now I ask myself? Just off the main road near the Lido area [Rua Casa Branca] the restaurant cannot boast that it has that view over the sea or dates back 100 years!! etc!! However, it's setting is pleasant... More
