Well worth booking for a Veniese style meal here. The food and service are very good. Try and sit outside if you can.

Service excellent but food average at best . Really annoyed after explaining that I am on medication and will not be drinking very much I was recommended a fizzy Bellini at €37 for two . The Ossobuco was tasteless and chewy (no zest etc ) I have eaten here quite a few times over the years but this was bad... More

This is a restaurant on the edge of the cliff. Beautiful setting, looking out over the ocean. Need to book to ensure getting a table on the veranda overlooking ocean . Food is excellent, after all it is part of Reids Belmont Hotel. Super place for a nice/special meal. Price is higher than others around but this place is quality.... More

One of the absolute Best and most romantic places to eat on Madeira. The view is spectacular over the ocean. Food- and winecard is very good and at reasonable prices. The staff is friendly but highly professionel, wonderful atmosphere, been there 3 times, looking forward to next time we vist the island.

This is one of the Reids Palace restaurants. Reids itself is pretty special but among its eateries the Villa Cipriani is tops. The food is imaginative and superb and the service is quite outstanding. It has a lovely position with a substantial terrace overlooking the ocean and the staff are simply the best. There is an extensive wine list and... More

The food here is exactly as expected from a top hotel and could not be faulted. The wine selection was excellent and the staff were welcoming and helpful. Early booking is necessary to get one of the best tables taht have an uninterruped view over Funchal Bay. The price of the food was quite reasonable, considering the quality and the... More

The view is stunning, I would suggest to phone and try and book terrace as you may be disappointed if you are inside. Food is to die for, carpaccio just melts in the mouth, staff amazing. Will come back.

What a beautiful place. The staff are very welcoming and friendly but professional. As a vegetarian I have struggled a little in Madeira to find variety for dinner but there were lots of options here. We had great food, beautiful views and even had an owl fly past us when it got dark. Would definitely come here again if we... More
