Do not eat any seafood here unless you want to get sick. It's not fresh. Small portions. Can't recommend.

A tourist restaurant. The wine was poor, the meals had grand titles but not the correct ingredients. Service was slow and only speeded up when we proceeded to leave at the end of one course - they then took our payment - not particularly cheap as it should have been. We wished we'd walked back to a fish restaurant we'd... More

Set with views overlooking sea and staff were friendly ( but were all men so no sign of sour faced waitress spoken about in other reviews). My good lady had the skewered meat and I had lasagne. Both very enjoyable and well prepared and served. Wait was fine so we had an enjoyable night. There is better but we have... More

Have eaten in this restaurant many times always pleasant however it let us down this time. I ordered swordfish and did enquire if it was available as not all restaurants have it on a regular basis, I had a tongue in check reply from the waiter to the effect he would send someone out to sea to get me some...

The menu in this restaurant looked really good but unfortunately the food was very disappointing. My husband ordered filet steak and what came certainly was not fillet. He asked for it medium rare and it came cremated and very tough

I liked the menu it had some good options. For the main course I chose a fillet steak but had to call the waiter back to let him know I wanted it medium rare. What I got was a well done stewing steak. It certainly was not fillet, sirloin at best if you ignored the tough parts and the gristle.... More

This is probably my favorite restaurant on this side of Funchal. Very nice place to eat. I have tried several things on the menu and it has all been tasty. The outdoor seating area is very nice and usually not too crowded. The staff is very friendly and service-minded. The prices are also very acceptable. It's a calm, chilled-out place... More

This is a pleasant enough restaurant and the food was tolerable but nothing special. I was given the wrong order but didn't fancy arguing the point but what I was given ok too. Some of our party had steak and that looked a little less than ok. There are so many good restaurants in this area of Funchal that I... More

This restaurant has good food and standard pricing, but the decor and service are just okay. It's not that it's a bad restaurant--it's just that there are so many other options nearby that are better in every category. I can't see any reason to recommend this restaurant over others.
