Excellent value but some aspects should be better

Proper name is Escola Profissional de Hotelaria e Turismo da Madeira. Well worth a visit and probably wise to book because the buffet lunch and daily changing table d'hote dinner are excellent value for money and ditto the interesting wine list. However, for a 'professional hotel school' that... read more

A friend who is a frequent visitor to Funchal recommended the Catering School restaurant, and we certainly weren't disappointed. We had an excellent 3 course meal with wine, water and coffee for 17.50 euros. There is a choice of two main courses (when we went it was a meat and a fish dish) and about five different desserts. We enjoyed... More

We ate here and had a lovely 3 course meal with water, wine and coffee excellent value for 17 euros. The students are very attentive and you have to remember they are still training and do stand in groups at times. The modern hotel dining area was a little clinical and lacked ambience but it was a good enjoyable meal.... More

During our recent return to Madeira my friends and I were pleased to find that this Restaurant School (not Scool), was still operating. (I have a strange feeling it was closed to the public in 2013). Once again we found the facilities and the ambiance in excellent order and all six of us enjoyed a three-course meal of a very... More

Based in a hotel your food is served and prepared by the students as part of their studies. Buffett lunch with wonderful choice of salads and hot foods too. The sweets are wonderful. A different experience and well worth a visit.

Visited here for the second time on Saturday 4th October. There were only 4 tables occupied which was a pity. The food was , as before, beautifully prepared and presented. We both had the cod and it was delicious, and the desserts were 'to die for.' The white wine was also nice. We chose to have our coffee outside on... More

Friends took us to this restaurant as they think it is excellent value and service. Unfortunately, it is not good for vegetarians as even the salads and potatoes have meat or fish in them. I asked the waitress for vegetarian options but drew a blank. However when we left my friends made a complaint to the manager who said in... More

The Catering School was recommended to us many years ago and been meaning to try it ever since but was never quite sure where it was. Finally got round to it and it is now in a new location and is part of Hotel Escolar (heading west from Funchal it is beyond the Forum and up a side street). We... More

As the title says We've been meaning to come here for a long time and after this visit we'll definitely be back many more times. The Restaurant is part of the Hotel Escola de Hotelaria e Tourismo da Madeira. It was a 5/6 euro cab ride from the Lido area. Our Hotel reception booked it for us for our last... More
