Hubby and I wanted something light for lunch and so ordered 3 of the starters to share which was bruschetta, beef carpaccio and mozzarella with tomato. All 3 dishes were really fresh and packed full of flavour. We had a glass of red wine each which came recommended and complemented the food really well. Was based on the promenade and... More

Very nice restaurant belonging to Porto Mare but open to everyone. Very nice food, big portions and good wine. They have a very nice card with pizza on one side but very good risotto and beef on the other side. Sitting outside is great with Ocean view but they have often live music inside so that is also a good... More

I go to this restaurant since 2008. It never failed to disappoint me after almost nearly 100 meals. Sure some were better than others but food has always been great and, above all, the staff is fantastic lead by the super nice lady called "Rosa".

Il Basilico is part of the Porto Mare and the food is excellent. I'm not a regular eater of pizza but it looked so good that I ordered it and it was so good that we visited again. Its not as expensive as some of other hotel restaurants but gives good value for money and the staff are very friendly... More

I was so looking forward to returning to this restaurant. We visited several times on our last holiday to Madeira and loved it. Since 2013 it has obviously expanded and we were really disappointed. Service was very slow, pizza was virtually cold and there wasn't the same attention to detail there was three years ago. We won't hurry back because... More

On our penultimate night in Funchal, we finally found a good Italian restaurant. The spaghetti bolognese was excellent, as was the vegetable pasta. The kids loved the pizzas (although, it must be said, not the fish fingers, which they said contained potato). The desserts were a little disappointing, especially the pineapple tart/mousse, which was dry and tasteless. The staff were... More
