Clean, efficient, cheap and great food.

Visited on a Sunday where they had a variety of roasts available but my husband and I went for Portuguese options of a chicken dish and espada fish. Both were delicious and served with copious amounts of veg. Washed down with an €8 bottle of red wine. Service great.

Although it operates all week, we have always visited on Sunday when the attraction at both lunch and dinner is the English Sunday roast. Once again, this year we were delighted with our meal. We both enjoyed our pate starter and we were then presented with our main courses. My roast beef was well cooked and the accompanying dish of... More

Visited X Tonel on recommendation of a friend. The food was excellent the place is small and compact but spotless. The service was very good didn't have to wait long at all. I have to say I had the best meal of the week. Well worth a visit.

We enjoyed the excelent cuisine of the Chef! We went there twice while we were visiting Madeira during one week. Each dish was an experience . The waiters are very kind. If you are looking for good food at good price you must go there!

Third year been using this restaurant, each time concerned it would not be the same but it keeps the same high standard of excellent food professionally served with very friendly staff who recognise you each time. You need to book to avoid being disappointed as it is not very big apart from big in all other aspects. Love it and... More

Recommended by a friend and really lived up to expectations. Looks like a very ordinary shop in a parade from the outside but the food was absolutely superb and excellent value for money. You can easily miss it but its in a modern parade just opposite Reids. Inside its modern and bright but not trendy. They squeeze the tables in... More

We have visited Madeira every year for the last ten years and we are always looking for good value and good food! Well, we've found it. X Tonel is opposite Reid's Hotel in a small parade of shops and it's easily missed. It looks a bit clinical, with bright white lights that need a dimmer switch, but don't let that... More

A little gem of a restaurant, excellent food and friendly service, booking is advisable as with only 24 covers it does get full up but a must when you visit Funchal

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at X Tonel again this year. Small place but as the tables are close together, it makes for friendly dining! The food and wine were very good and as always the staff very friendly. Would recommend.

A brilliant Sunday lunch experience. Traditional roast meats with Yorkshire puddings and a varied selection of vegetables. There is a Madeiran flavour to this and the house wines are recommended. It's a small establishment; very friendly and well worth a visit.
