We had: Coconut Crumb Breaded Shrimp on the Skewer with Mango Mayonnaise Lime Risotto with Roasted Banana and Fried Scabbardfish Filet Grilled Fillet Steak and Caramelised Onion Compote It was all delicious. During our stay in Funchal I have eaten the... read more

Incredible views make up for mediocre food. The porc belly with Chorizo reduction was very dry and without any crackling. How about some sauce to give it some more flavour? The beef sandwich was ok, with some nice curry-flavoured puffed rice, but it was overpowdered with salt and garlic. Maybe the fish and risotto dishes are better, but who cares... More

Great restaurant which we have visited on both holidays to Madeira. Food excellent and service very good. Many dishes based on rice - but certainly not borind.

Had dinner here while on holiday in Funchal. The food and service are of excellent quality. The menu offers a real choice of different sorts of flavour and combinations. (If you are looking for run of the mill go elsewhere). As another contributor mentioned, it can look quite empty, but the purpose made terrace at the back is large. The... More

Visited this restaurant for lunch. They have both a terrace and main restaurant, both have excellent views, but we wanted a good lunch. We were not disappointed . As the name suggests, the restaurant specialises in different rice dishes and combinations. From risotto , through stews, right through to the desert menu. My wife had parrot fish risotto, which was... More

I discovered this place on Tripadvisor and was glad we searched it out. I had the coconut prawns with mango dressing to start and I can honestly say I would go back just for this dish alone. I had the mixed vegetable risotto and my father had the seafood risotto, both dishes were good. The location over looking the sea... More

If you are looking for something different, Riso is a must visit! The overall atmosphere is simple elegance, but at a mid-range price. The view from inside or out is breathtaking, and the service was superb. There are many rice-based dishes but not your traditional Madeiras cooking. We has a terrific gazpacho to start (creamy, not chunky) and each table... More

Great food and ambient. The service was perfect, but the food a bit slow. Recommended for a couple with a bottle of vine.
