From the terras we had an awe-inspiring view of the sunset over Funchal and the sea. We ate great meat dishes (Bife "Solar"). Very polite service. Cheap compared to restaurants in Funchal. Highly recommended.

We loved this restaurant, great views over Funchal, the food was amazing and so reasonable, a meal for 4 with aperitif and house wine was 78 euros only! And the service was really good too.

An excellent meal with well hung meat and good service. Priced well. The balcony area looks out over the Bay of Funchal and at sunset is a view to behold. The service was excellent and the clients a good mix of locals with a sprinkle of tourists. A little out of the way and not in the general town area... More

This restaurant is outside of Funchal and it is over priced for the food you get. Our dishes were fresh but very earthy and the sauces were not delicious compared to the other restaurants we have been to in the past couple of days in Funchal. It does not compare with Mozart or Doña Amelia in terms of taste and... More

In my opinion this is the best restaurant in Funchal!! The mixed kebab is quality. You get big portions and it does not break the bank! If you come to Funchal you will have to come to This place!! It also has a outstanding view over the city

Z'arcos was recommended to us by locals. It was a good recommendation. The waiters and waitress were very polite and we were helped with our menu choices. The food was very good - so good we had a second visit! Prices were reasonable.

This restaurant was recommended by the staff at Palheiro Village and I am very glad they did. The location is stunning, with uninterrupted views of the sea and Funchal town and harbour. The staff are friendly and efficient and the food is excellent. They also provide a take-away service, which I used on a couple of occasions. Give it a... More

The view here is brilliant but from our experience the food and service were less so. Three of us has a local meat skewer speciality which was nice, but not the most tender and slightly overpowered by garlic seasoning. The same dish elsewhere was better. The restaurants special chicken pot was however very nice. The service started well but dropped... More
