We dropped into this Old Town restaurant on our first evening in Funchal (having had lunch on at least one occasion on previous visits). As always good local food, lovingly prepared, good service and the addition of complimentary Madeira.
When we stopped by later in the week for lunch it was nice to be recognised as repeat customers by the staff.
This restaurant is one of last in a line of Old Town restaurants - staff here are not as pushy to get people into their restaurant - their food speaks for itself.
