Beer by the harbour

A lovely place, jutting out towards the harbour where you can watch the cruise ships, the odd fisherman and maybe the sea cadets kayaking etc. Removed from the traffic so nice and quiet.

The past few years have seen the front on Funchal go thru many changes and disruption to local businesses, especially the Beerhouse. Now, this restaurant has a new balcony, chairs and tables, and doesn't suffer from the constant noise of building works and trucks. It has, what can only be described as a potential goldmine of a location, along with... More

Stopped here for cocktails, before walking back to the cruise ship. Friendly service, good selection of drinks and meals. Nice views over the harbour and marina. Good seating, both inside and out. Pleasant.

Went here as a real ale fan and was much more impressed by the food and location. The beer is darker and maltier than the local Coral brand and overall a better drink but they only sell one type, lager. Not great for a beerhouse! Try the Coral or Super Bock Stout elsewhere if you just want a nice drink.... More

We stopped off here one afternoon for a few drinks and something to eat. It took 15-20 minutes for us to be served, despite the waitresses walking past us several times to serve the Germans next to us. We were about to get up and leave before we were served, the couple on the table behind us did just that.... More

We came across this whilst walking and thought we would try it. Ordered a club sandwich each and their local beer. Be warned if you have a small appetite order one club sandwich between two. We stopped off here quite often as it is nice to sit in comfortable chairs looking at the marina or cruise liners.

We have used the Beerhouse for years. The new terrace is great and the extra seating places so comfortable and more of them. However for the first time we found the food lacking compared to previous visits. The menu has changed since the new owners and is smaller. I chose lobster and prawn spaghetti, my OH chose smoked pork. The... More

This is always a first stop for us when in Madeira. We park ourselves at the front, order up, and text home to say we are there. Then wave to the family who is watching the webcam! Such fun. So good this year to see the much improved venue, New tables and chairs, new menus, new uniforms - everything well... More

We had so much fun at the Beerhouse, that rather than staying for a quick drink, as first planned, we decided to stay for the whole evening. Our waiter Miguel was superb, great fun and very accomodatng...he made us smile, from strait to finish. We are popping back for a drink this evening. The location is great with good views... More

I always like to visit the Beerhouse to have a large beer. The staff are always very friendly and happy to help. We decided to have a steak one lunch time which was lovely. Cannot wait to go back again
