“A Small but busy and Buzzy Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We were recommended this Restaurant by our hotel receptionist and whilst it is only 23rd or so on the T.A. listings we think it deserves to be higher. The food was lovely - the speciality being "skewer beef" or Kebab to you and me - which I had and thoroughly enjoyed. Though very busy on the night we went we were looked after like royalty (perhaps a nod to the fact that our hotel booked the table?) and had a lovely, and not expensive, evening out.
We would thoroughly recommend it.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Lovely restaurant and atmosphere...made to feel special and there was a definite buzz in the restaurant. Food was excellent, muscles were a little different to how they are presented in the uk but still lovely and enjoyable. Combatentes steak was delicious as was my mixed fish skewer...both really memorable....as were the puds...looking forward to our next visit before we leave...booking required!

“Still excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

We ate three marvellous dinners here during our week-long stay in Funchal. The food remains excellent, the staff are very professional and friendly. There`s an excellent wine list too. Come along and enjoy! It looked very busy at lunch times, so it`s probably best to book but we were lucky in the evenings and managed to find a table each time.

“A great restaurant - but do book!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

One of our favourites on a recent visit. Welcoming, good food and our wine was excellent. Tried the fish kebab and a fillet of parrot fish both of which were really fresh and excellent.
When you map the restaurant on our Trip app it comes out as being out at see- actually on the north corner of the Funchal Gardens. Quiet location away from the normal tourist restaurants. Definitely recommended- we would have gone back next night but they are closed on Sundays :(

“Excellent plase for relax in good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

We were on Madeira this February and we wanted to eat in local restaurant (not too big with a lot of tourists) so we ask on reception of our hotel Monte Carlo in Funchal and got a name of this restaurant...so, we came in the evening on the dinner and came back tomorow for lunch...everything is OK, very clean, nice plase, smileing personel, food is very good, and the wine too :) Interior is very pleasant, a lot of light...I really can recommend this place if you want enjoy in food, wine and good atmosphere...The prices are normal, not higher than other places
