“Tremendous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

If friendliness and lack of pretension are important criteria, then Restaurante Riviera is already a winner. Add to that huge portions of tasty food, simply cooked and unfussy, and you have a real winner. Three visits in a week gave consistent results. Bingo bongo woof woof.

“My favourite place for lunch in Funchal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2010

Riveira always serves up fresh food at a decent price. It is interesting that many tables are reserved at lunchtime for locals who come to eat here on their lunch break.
A real treat for anyone with Maderian ancestry is the milho quinte which is hard to find in any 'tourist' oriented restaurants. Overall a traditional Maderian restaurant which can be relied on to serve up good food at a reasonable price. Typical price for lunch 6-7Euro.

“family run restaurant, excellent fish, best chips in Funchal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2010

Very good value, especially daily specials, bearing good comparison with local competition on Rua da Carreira. families with children made especially welcome. Large screen TV with sports events may be welcome or a distraction. Only complaint with the food was along with many restaurants in Funchal. overcooked vegetables.
