“Sheila Canterbury”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Four of us ate here today and it was terrible . The chicken was tasteless and of a strange consistency. The veg grey and watery. Tomato and onion soup with an egg in it is very odd and there was onions in profusion with every course. The waiter was totally indifferent to our complaints. Never again!

“Great food + service - had lunch and dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

This was a really good find - located in the old town area of Funchal. We ended up going here twice during our stay: once for lunch and a few days later for dinner. Both were excellent - great range of dishes, excellent service and really good overall value.

Recommended.

“Superb Value for Money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Looking for a reasonable fixed price menu , we ate at Tropicana. 3 course menu €10.95. The Fish soup and Beef kebab were extremely good , followed by pudding or fresh fruit. A bottle of house white wine was just under 10 euros. Highly recommend.

“Stunning lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

We were looking for a simple lunch and randomly came across Tropicana having run a gamut of hard sell restaurants. Politeness personified, exemplary service, simply stunning set lunch for less than €11.00 p.p.

Partner had the fish soup followed by roast chicken, I had food envy until my vegetable soup (Madeira style) arrived followed by beef on a spit. Loved it all.
