Wonderful Sunday Buffet

Extensive buffet with large range of salad type starters, soup, choice of both fish and meat and a choice of dessert! Lovely surroundings and fine view. Total cost for 2 people with a bottle of wine and coffee was €30! Beat that!

Having previously enjoyed dinner here whilst in Madeira wiith my husband, I decided on this solo visit to book for lunch. The booking was made via the reception of the hotel. The 3 course buffet lunch, consisting of soup, choice of salads and meat or fish main course cost 7 euros. It was beautifully presented and very tasty. Dessert was... More

We were told about this place by a fellow holidaymaker, not far from our hotel and good food. So we had to give it a go. Went last week for dinner and enjoyed all of it. The setting is great, with a view out over the coast, service is good and the prices are very reasonable: 17.50 Euros for a... More

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 claims to aim high We were surprised by some aspects. For example:... 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
