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.

We both had swordfish, what was excellent. Service very friendly, good wine, fresh vegetables ,etc. Stairs are a bit steep to get there.

Ate here on the first night of our holiday. Though the food was nice the service was incredibly slow even the place was half empty. The staff were pleasant enough but it must have taken best part of an hour for food to arrive

I had the bad luck to eat here when I came off a cruise line. The food was appaling, I saw rodents in the toilets and the manager/owner was a rude and arrogant jerk whose only apparent interest was in taking cash from tourists as quickly as possible and giving sub par food in return . A dreadful image to... More

An inviting restaurant from the looks and menu, however that's where the good ends. The service is slow, the food is terrible - despite asking for a tuna steak 'medium' I.e. pink on the inside, it arrived cremated and dry. The wife faired no better with her grilled chicken undercooked and almost raw - the staff showed indifference when confronted... More

Went 7/4/14, nearly empty and waited over an hour for cold food. Skewers with mixed meat, never had chicken leg with a bone on a skewer, cold piece of beef and some kind of gristle for meat. Service poor and had no interest, best part of the meal was leaving after not eating the food
