“Tapas with a twist.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

After a disappointing visit to Belém in Lisbon the next port of call was Funchal. The restaurant we wanted to visit was not open for lunch so we chose this one instead. (It's near the cable car station in Funchal) We had two different plates of very unusual tapas, both of them delicious. Puddings were a delight. Waiting staff were very informative about their menus and knew all about the ingredients. It was such a contrast from the restaurant in Belém and such a pleasure. One of the owners persuaded us to try some local rum instead of brandy after the meal. The day was rounded off by a Tukxi back to the ship and the driver gave a running commentary all the way. Would definitely go back there.

“Ideal snack menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

The concept of tapas is ideal for a snack menu. The waitress brought us different tasty tapas dishes and we enjoyed the experience. Will visit again for a light meal. The value for money is very good. We had expected a Spanish type tapas menu but was pleasantly surprised at the different options served.

“Dont miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

This little tapas bar is situated on the street of painted doors but is easy to miss as it has no outside dining unlike all the other restaurants. A small cosy place specialising in home made tapas which changes daily according to what's available which isn't really reflected in the menu. The home made lemonade and cakes were absolutely delicious and it was very good value... don't miss if you visit Funchal.

“Ignore the map!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This excellent little place is not up in the hills but on a small street parallel to the seafront. One day Trip may get around to making it easier for reviewers and readers to correct flaws. In the interim some hotels in Madeira are literally at sea.
