This quite a gem hidden in a busy Funchal town centre. Great attention to detail and presentation of the dishes. Great beef skewers and fillet of sea bream. Friendly service and lovely amuse-bouche makes this place a must on our next visit.

Olives is situated on the third floor of a small office block. It has a lovely roof terrace which is a great place to eat lunch on a hot day because you get a bit of breeze and can watch the cruise ships at anchor in the harbour. Food is good and imaginatively presented. Menu is not big but is... More

Olives restaurant is a wonderful setting for dinner, atop the Edifcio Oudinot in the heart of Funchal, just yards from the famous Workers' Market (Mercado dos Lavradores). This was by far the best vegetarian selection we had seen in Madeira (my partner is vegetarian) with a complete separate vegetarian menu alongside the main menu of meat and fish. There are... More

Another favourite that has moved from the hotel area to the old town, Olives now has a great outside terrace with a view down to the sea, being situated on Level 3 of Edifício Oudinot, near the market building. As before, the food is excellent and the chef still comes out to chat to diners and to ask if everything’s... More

My other half is a vegetarian and he researched this restaurant and was excited to go. We were not disappointed and the view from the top is lovely! The service was excellent and we felt at home. We were too stuffed for a dessert but seeing the photos on here will ensure we will be back for another visit!

Not the best setting but the quality of the food makes it all worthwhile. Most dishes are a work of art. All credit to the chef! Each dish is cooked to order. Service is great. Very enjoyable experience.

Visited here twice during our week stay. We first ventured for evening meal and then for our last meal in Funchal as it was our favourite for the week. We made a reservation though at this time of year not needed as there was plenty of room. We ate on the terrace with a view over Funchal marina surrounded by... More

Olives Restaurant is influenced by many different cuisines, as Madeiran cuisine is. It is all under the same interpretation, the Mediterranean cuisine, in which Portugal and Madeira have the major influence. In our space you can choose from two different sets, interior, around a foyer with a beautiful art deco/nouveaux inspired staircase, or the outside terrace with a view for the city market area and Funchal cruise port. From the menu you have as options several fish and meat dishes, or you can choose from our vegetarian/vegan menu.
