Worth the short walk up from Old Town

This is a cool little spot for a night out, especially when they have a DJ on, the views are breathtaking and the drinks are really good too, sometimes the free pour is more than generous!

Visited here on Saturday night and sat outside listening to the music and the bar staff brought us over our drinks, I had a couple of gins which were served with different mixers, I quiet enjoyed the gin with lime and grapefruit. Great atmosphere and service and the fresh air from the sea made it a really nice and chilled... More

Always enjoy this café but haven't been for a while. It is good to see some improvements to the building and I thought there were more tables and chairs outside. Lovely spot for watching the boats go out. Service was a little slow by their normal standards but we weren't in any great hurry

Always excellent service at this lovely cafe overlooking Funchal harbour. Usually this is the end of a walk through Funchal old town which has started from the Pestana Promenade on Estrada Monumental. For just a coffee or lunch and a beer, this is one place we always return to time and time again, when we visit Funchal.

Saturday night overlooking the bay at Funchal pulled by the sound of live music and a busy outside seated area with a mix of locals and visitors. Great value drink and food prices. Nothing flash just an easy evening with great service from the staff who just don't stop. Not sure how many night they have live music but definitely... More

We came across the cafe & stopped for drinks & decided to go for lunch the next day. The views are stunning but it's such a popular place you'd be lucky to get a table on the edge with the sea view. It's a lovely relaxed cafe & the food is great - just snacks but made to a high... More

Simple little review. Simple little cafe. That makes great coffee. We stumbled across this little gem. Whilst walking up through the cobbled streets of the old town in Funchal. Yes you can sit inside. But why not sit outside opposite and the view looks right up the coast of Funchal. To view the harbour. Usually with cruise ships. Look down... More
