Brilliant restaurant. There is the option to sit inside the restaurant or on the top of a rock area sticking out into the sea. This means that whilst you are enjoying the evening the sea is rolling in and out and the waves are crashing on the rocks below. Perfect. If the weather is a bit wet they have plastic... More

If it had not been for a recommendation in Lonely Planet, we would not have found this restaurant, although on Santa Maria Street, it is some 300m further away from the restarant area/ city centre. Closed on a Monday - we visited on a Sunday (opens at 7.00pm), although there were few guests there that evening. Beautiful setting over looking... More

We so enjoyed dining here with the great views out to sea that we returned a couple of days later - some unusual mixes but all very tasty! Would recommend a visit.

Visited Riso on the final day of my holiday in Madeira. The menu isn't huge but I could have easily ordered most of the meals on there - they all sounded so good! In the end, my mum and I both ordered a lime risotto topped with the local fish and fried banana and it was absolutely delicious. The meals... More

We stayed in Funchal for a week and like this restaurant so much we came twice. The food was excellent (I can particularly recommend the prawns with mango mayo and the curry, and my wife enjoyed the chocolate chicken!). The views out onto the harbour are fantastic and a big part of the restaurant's appeal, but if you want a... More

Been to RISO previously mostly at lunchtime for its great views/location and simple but good value menu. On this occasion we went in the evening when RISO transforms into an upmarket venue, suspended over the sea with great views, atmosphere, and unique food. (a la carte only in the evening). We both had a gratinated goats cheese and broccoli puree,... More

Very good food and service, highly recommended. Spectacular to sit on the outside part practically over the Atlantic Sea.

...I am not used that the amuses that are provided by the restaurant are put on the bill. Especially if you are provided by 2 amuses (bread with butter and breadsticks with oil and chicken paste) that both are put on the bill seperatly. Also, we declined the chicken paste as we we are vegatarian. It was left at the... More

Vusited 4 years ago and didn't enjoy, decided to revisit because of the adverts and features in Madeira magazines. Visited at lunch time, was served a €5.60 goats cheese with onion and tomoto sandwich - it was very expensive fort the dull and boring, uninventiive and the cheapest rubbish that was served, no onion, sparse tomato on thick ugly bread,...

Very bad experience. We had a lunch there - hamburger from very old meat and tuna salat - too much cooked. And both of us had a nausea. Be carefull!
