Miserable, rude, waitress who was totally uninterested and wouldn’t let us take a chair from inside outside despite letting others. Average drinks at average prices, one positive was the entertainment in the square. Won’t bother next time.

We never went inside but outside was a small outdoor terrace area only had a couple of drinks. But friendly staff and nice choice of drinks. No issue would return again.

Stopped off here quite a few times during our recent visit to Funchal. An ideal spot for a leisurely drink & people-watching. They do have a food menu, but we would have to say that it is pretty limited – having said that, they do...More

This is a great little bar, cocktails are reasonably priced, nice atmosphere, a great place for people watching and a very good musician on the evening. Would definitely come back when we visit Funchal again.

We enjoyed a nice pre-dinner drink here whilst out wandering the old town. There are several pavement side tables where you can enjoy a drink in the evening shade and people watch. Good service and some good beers - they had a range of beers...More

It’s a bit of a mixture. Bit of Beatles and some of the classic country songs. Enthusiasm greater than skill but great fun.
