We chose to eat here partly for the good reviews, and partly because my partner is vegetarian and we knew she would get a good choice from the separate menu offered.

Visited twice during our recent holiday and it was without doubt the standout restaurant of the trip. Chose from vegetarian menu first time and the main menu on the second. Excellent food on both occasions with great attention to detail in presentation and flavours. Very reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

Very good and original food. Family managed. Good wines. Original location both inside and outside sittings.. Some times in the evening a bit noisy because of the loud music from the fitness downstairs. on popular days reservation needed.

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.
