The beautiful views of Funchal Bay from the terrace

A very good Resturant that is used by the locals and the hotel management staff.. So, if you are a holidaymaker, don't expect this place to be "suggested" by the hotel. If you are there for the fabulous New Year celebrations, the cliff face has a sign depicting the current year, which changes to... read more

We were a party of twenty people many of whom have eaten here previously. For some extraordinary reason only three or four menus were available for us to choose from. I ordered a half bottle of white wine for my wife and after twenty minutes went to the cold cellar and got it myself. I ended up drinking only one... More

We came to Z'arcos for lunch as it was only a short drive from the hotel we were staying at. We ended up having dinners every day for the rest of our week long stay in Madeira. Food is amazing and the waiters make you feel very welcome. Amazing views of Funchal.

We came to Zarcos on the recommendation of a local. The view was the best part of the experience.Sitting on the patio overlooking Funchal and most of the south coast of Madeira at sunset was an unforgettable experience. The food on the other hand was very forgettable. The skewered chicken was overcooked as was the barbecued chicken. The menu is... More

Being the first half of January, we were only one of three tables occupied. The food was well prepared and the menu very broad with seafood predominating. Prices were average.

What l liked about this restaurant was that it felt like eating at your extended family. The espetadas were delicious and the service warm and friendly with a breathtaking view of Funchal.

Our usual place for New Year's Eve, they put on an incredible buffet, with absolutely everything included. The view is exceptional over the Port and we saw and heard all ten cruise ships and last but not least a fantastic view of the famous Madeira fireworks. We actually include this restaurant in our 'to take people to' it is basically... More
