If you want to eat in center of Fucnhal and not spend all your money Visconde is very good choice. I had eat here more than 3 times and each meal was tasty and with valid portion. I can recommend scabbard fish in all versions...they have. Service is nice. Prices are good. What I also like is clear menu with photos of dishes. There is hard to get a table in prime time so reservation may be neccessary.More

Went here for lunch on the day before we went home instead of having dinner somewhere as we were leaving early the next morning. I wish we'd found it sooner as the meal was the best we've had all week for a fraction of the...price. I reccomend the scabbard fish with tomato and onion sauce, the sauce was delicious and the fish super fresh. 2 mains, garlic bread, a pint of beer and 2 glasses of white wine came to €33 and the staff were lovely and very helpful. See you when we come back next time.More

We stumbled upon this restaurant our first night in Madeira while wandering through its alleys, and enjoyed, for the first time, scabbard fish with banana and Madeira’s version of varicose bread. The meal was super affordable and incredibly good. On our last night in town...we went to one of the touristy places on the main drag and had the same dishes; they cost three times as much and weren’t nearly as good.More

My friends and myself visited Madeira a few days ago. We stayed in Funchal for couple of days and alongside of exploring the capital's beauty little did we know that the real hidden gem of Funchal is to be discovered, yet!!! After hours of walking...around the city we decided to stop somewhere for dinner. My friend looked up at the restaurants reviews on Tripadvisor with only two conditions in her mind - fresh seafood and resonable price. She found O Visconde - decision was made! When we sat at the table Paula came to us pretty much straight away with her big smile and welcoming attitude. The menu was endless with amazing choices of seafood and meat food as well. After few minutes Paula came to us and very gladly helped us to choose the right meal for each of us. Paula looked after us so wonderfully, that the next day we decided to have our dinner there again. Simply, because of Paula's genuine care about her customers...I dare to say many of them friends now (included us ;) ). I fell in love with Madeira and Madeiran people and I am definitely going back to explore more of this beautiful island. But the first thing what I ll do when I get back is to go to O Visconde to say hello to lovely Paula :) and eat the most delicious food you can ever imagine. Tatiana, Iveta, Renata.More

Wonderful restaurant! We visited here with our 10 month old son and it was such a good experience. The food was excellent with many choices, however, my partner and I went for the plates of the day for lunch, a great grilled fish with potatoes...and salad. Delicious food, they even brought some tomatoes and cucumber out for our son to nibble on. The waitresses were so kind and friendly, showing us great hospitality. The others eating were locals out for their lunch break. Very reasonably priced too. If ever in Funchal again, we will be back!More

This is a treasure in Funchal whatever time of the day. Morning coffee is a treat and our lunch today was fabulous. The special Scabbard fish and the house specialty prawns with salad and choice of potatoes was terrific and clearly this place is loved...by the locals making it a great place to relax and enjoy the company of Funchal people. Lovely service included cleaning the sauce I spilt on my trousers! Paula and Nini looked after us and all al fresco so wonderfully. Finally it’s great value too. We shall return!More

A lovely, old-fashioned restaurant nestled in an attractive street in the heart of Funchal. I had the hanging beef here and it was splendid!
