Intended going here earlier in the week but it appeared crowded so went elsewhere. Went firstly on a Friday and I had Calamari for starters while my wife had shrimps. Both were excellent and I had a Rose which although not what I wanted to order was almost as good. My wife had duck while I had chicken for main... More

Visited last night following several recommendations. Can't understand why we haven't been before. Run by the people who used to have Quinta Palmeira near the old Savoy and still with the same chef. Thoroughly enjoyed their 3courses from the a la carte menu for 26.50 euros which included wine and water although there was a supplement for the more expensive... More

Our late booking of this well rated restaurant was worth a visit. The staff welcoming and attentive. A menu in four languages took some deciphering comprised an interesting range of dishes. The wine selection was short but some good wines on offer at reasonable prices. We choose calamari and smoked duck which were tasty and well presented. Although the calamari... More

We ate here twice , each time felt like a treat. We had beautifully presented food, served with style. There was a varied menu with plenty of choice and the poncha (drink) and the sweetmeat at the end were delightful touches.

We have been to this restaurant many times on previous visits to Funchal and it never fails to please. This holiday has been no exception and although we stay at the Cliff Bay where the food is very good we do like to visit local restaurants. This restaurant is one of our favourites because the standard of the food and... More

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
