Olives is an amazing restaurant located in a mixed use building. The two brothers and hostess made us feel so welcome for what we thought was the best Valentine Day Ever! We read all the reviews on TA and our expectations were exceeded. We were presented with a spectacular fixed price menu that had pumpkin, walnut soup, a large selection... More

This restaurant is on the third floor of a new building near the Market but cannot be seen from the street. When we looked at it (in the afternoon) a group was finishing lunch on the terrace which overlooks a road but has views to the sea. When we went, in the evening, it was quite empty and lacked atmosphere.... More

Unusual and simple venue on third story gives view out to the harbour. The food was delicious and well presented. Service good without rushing and value in my view was exceptionally good.

We ate twice for lunch at this restaurant and had two of the best meals in 3 weeks in Funchal. It is on the 3rd floor of a nice Art Deco building with good views, but suffers from lack of passing trade. For its' long-term future I hope it is busier in the evenings. The restaurant has an excellent vegetarian... More

On a chilly January evening, we were the only customers at Olives. The staff had done their best to make the space inviting, but the indoor tables are on a sort of mezzanine above a leisure centre, so you can see and hear people working out below. I'm sure the terrace is nicer when the weather allows. The menu is... More

A Fantastic Find wander upstairs or take the lift & you won't be disappointed. The shopping centre was somewhere we have known for sometime it was damaged badly in the floods of 2010. While walking around Funchal we decided to have another look inside apart from a gym on the 2nd floor Olives seem to be the only occupant of... More

Description
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.
