Great restaurant on the mountain with amazing and breathtaking view and definately one of the best meal I have ever eaten - Espada da Banana! This fish with banana, sauce and vegetables was just amazing. Just go there and check. You won't regret!

We visited this restaurant as it was close to where we were staying and convenient for our first dinner out in Madeira. We were met by the above-mentioned Margarita, who served us for the evening. She was really helpful and never stopped smiling all evening! We were recommended a wine, that was a great selection. I had the beef fillet... More

It was empty on the Sunday night we visited. It was recommended by the concierge and it's a nice neighbourhood restaurant with exceptional views. Too cold at night for anything more than a drink outside. Not fancy but very friendly service, good food rather than exceptional, good value.

Great simple food with a super wine list and staff who are attentive and who are able to advise on the wines which we knew little about. Their espetedas are excellent. The restaurant has a wonderful view over Funchal and the coastline. We visited it several times during our three month stay on the island.

Well worth the walk up the hill - otherwise you won't get spectacular views over Funchal and out across the ocean! ;) Well priced (€35 for 2 mains, 1 side, 1 dessert, 4 drinks) Wonderful food (compared to the over priced touristy rubbish were served in Funchal center). Were more than happy to make one of their veggie starter options... More

Off the beaten track, but really worth the trip! Excellent local food, friendly service, combined with one of the best views over Funchal! Don't miss it!
