We ate here and sampled one of the fixed price menus. It was excellent value and the food was tasty and there were plenty of vegetables. The waitress was friendly and the service was efficient.

Visited X Tonel twice during our holiday. Unfortunately we could not visit more as the restaurant was then closed for a short family holiday. Food and service as good as ever. Quality of meat and fish supported with a wide selection of fresh vegetables. If you have room there are always lovely home made sweets. Always excellent value. This year... More

This restaurant is opposite Reid's where we were staying and like many others we took dinner here on one night we did not want the full monty in our hotel.

Usually go at least twice to this lovely little restaurant close by Reads. They are usually full so booking is essential. They are full because they know their clientele and know what they want and at what price. The restaurant is small about 24 covers. The service is great, the staff fantastic and the food even better. Highly recommended

We enjoyed our visit very much. We both had a set meal and everything was cooked to perfection. The staff were very hardworking, attentive and friendly. Lots of lovely fresh vegetables and home made desserts. The fresh pineapple was cut to perfection too! Thank you for a very enjoyable evening.

Lovely bright interior design & good service & food. The decor is very 'hard' so that there is a lot of reflected noise. There is not a lot of space & few tables for 2; we would have preferred to be separate/detached from our 'neighbours'

This small-24 covers restaurant-is a favourite of those who know Madiera. Quietly and efficiently run for many years by InesTeixeira and Leno Camacho they welcome back as friends the many returning regulars. It is wise to book this so easily missed insignificant,modern restaurant. You will not be disappointed.On Sundays there are the British Sunday roasts- a tradition started by the... More

Discovered the most wonderful dining experience on our latest trip to Funchal. Fantastic food and wonderful service. Went to Extonel 3 nights on our latest trip to Funchal. Would certainly recommend this dining experience as one of the best in Funchal. Look forward to returning in September 2014. xxxxx
