Just behind the Irish bar, (Hole In One), we found this place to be an excellent fish restaurant, and the service was excellent. Portions were quite large, so by the end of the meal we were well fed! This is not only a fish restaurant, they serve meats as well, however we ate fish so can't comment on any other... More

We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of friends and were not disappointed. Food was delicious, lovely atmosphere and excellent service. Definitely on our list to go again if we come back and visit this beatiful island.

Upon the recommendation of the Waiter we ordered the fish Platter for two. It was a great way to try several different kinds of fish and sea food all in one meal. The platter was excellent! It came with a separate dish of veggies and one of potatoes and yams a couple ways. Overall the meal was very good and... More

27 year wedding anniversary. Ordered the mixed fish platter for 2. It was good. Garlic bread was really good. Prawns were overcooked. Fish was good. Sides were very average. Service was ok. Nice meal but probably won't return.

This restaurant is actually split into two, the top section being chicken themed and the downstairs seafood themed, however it doesn't actually matter where you sit as you can order from both menus in either section. My husband and I came here for dinner and sat upstairs on the enclosed terrace, but ordered from the seafood menu. The food is... More

I wanted fish and my spouse wanted chicken. The hotel manager at the Cliff Bay suggested this restaurant would satisfy us both. In short, it did. I had the tiger prawns and she had the Piri Piri Chicken and both were outstanding. The staff was very personable and professional, so overall, it was an excellent choice.

My experience in Madeira is that if you get a good cabby they will point you in the direction of many great restaurants - this is an example. Just off the main road in the Lido end of town so you may not choose it yourself. always a good sign when it's full of local people. We had great service... More

We visited this restaurant because of the reviews on tripadvisor, it was really good. The staff are very professional and the food delicious. The only adverse comment is that the portions are too large enough to feed four people. This did not deter us as we visited again for Dinner before we went home. We can recommend the fish platters.

This restaurant was on my list to visit last year but unfortunately ran out of time so it was a must this year and I have to say it was excellent, definitely the best octopus lagreiro we've had in Funchal over the last 2 holidays, the food, staff and restaurant are excellent which is why we ate there twice, my...

Just when I thought you couldn't get the best of both worlds we found this restaurant. The offer of fresh fish is amazing, prepared just how you want it. Amazing, delicious and healthy. Or if you want to try something different, try Steak on the Stone and a wonderful piece of beef without leaving your seat. Cook it yourself and... More
