We have been visiting here annually since 2012 & always find time to eat here at least twice during our 2 week stay at the Cliff Bay. The display of fresh fish here is quite staggering - caught in the early hours on the plate for dinner + lobster & crab in the fish tank if you prefer. We ate... More

Great staff and superb food with excellent service plus reasonable prices. It's just a short walk from The Cliff Bay hotel where we were staying and well worth having the sole with all the trimmings as it was outstanding.

This is a favourite of ours on the island. Initially recommended to us by my parents, we return every time we are back in Funchal. Food is always exceptional, with wonderfully cooked vegetables. Order carefully as the portions are enormous-I have learned the hard way over the years. Friendly staff and great atmosphere.

If you enjoy fish then you must try this restaurant. We shared a smoked salmon and shrimp starter followed by a mixed fish platter for two, with seafood accompanied by generous fresh veg and potatoes. It was all perfectly cooked and we thought very good value. House wine was enjoyable and I am fussy with white wine. We will go... More

Have been coming to this restaurant for 12 years or more and the food is consistently of a high standard. The fish is first class with the fish platter of 4 different fishes, fresh, well cooked vegetables, corn and boiled potatoes, is particularly good value at €16.50. The restaurant is modern, air conditioned and the staff are friendly and attentive.

Having spent six nights seeking out the best restaurants in Funchal how surprised were we to find one of the best ones right under our nose right outside the Cliff Bay hotel. We were looking to have lunch before heading off to the airport so we were not looking for a Michelin star venue but the food here was exceptional.... More

Would recommend this restaurant for both Lunch & Dinner. Our evening meals were cooked as requested, fish & meat, & were most enjoyable, best being very hungry on arrival as the portions are on the large size. Our lunch visit was for soup & fresh bread the three of us all ordered different soup & all agreed they were delicious.... More
