As I write this, this restaurant is listed as 16 in Funchal. It was certainly busy, and there were a number of 'locals', which is usually a good indicator, but I was was distinctly unimpressed. Service, I can only describe as weird. My wife ordered a glass of sparkling wine. When served it was normal 'flat' wine. When challenged the... More

Based on the very good reviews I expected more than we found. This restaurant had many good points and the food was well cooked without being exceptional. However the sweets were average. The wine was interesting and the prices okay. So I am not sure why I wouldn't go back but I won't.

We have visited this restaurant several times over the years and it never lets us down. The squid starter and espatada main are amazing. Looking over Funchal with wonderful bougainvillea in the foreground an amazing evening treat. Murray

2 PAX diner, we came in one hour too early from our reservation and that was no issue at all. The weather was good and we chose our table on the roof terrace. You can see the sea, beautiful flowers and some construction of a building on the background. We started with garlic bread, Madeira tomato soup and the fish... More

My husband and I ate here this evening and had the espada with shrimp combination which was absolutely delicious. The menu was good with plenty of traditional options to choose from at a very reasonable price. The service was good and we were entertained by a group of folk singers. It's a great restaurant and we are very likely to... More

Excellent food and friendly service - we were returning as had visited on previous visits to Madeira and it was as good as remembered. Fillet on Hot Stone and Espetada were super tender. Squid Piri Piri very spicy and tasty - large portions Will return when next in Madeira Very busy and deservedly so.

This delightful restaurant tucked away in the hotel zone of Funchal is a delight. Whether eating in the roomy restaurant, the flower covered terrace or on the roof the reasonably priced menu offers a huge choice of dishes. The staff are quietly attentive and react immediately to any request. Well worth seeking out.

We arrived at quite a busy time so, along with others, waited for the folk dancers to finish and for tables to become free. The food was excellent and in good quantity. The staff were alert to our needs and quickly spotted that one of our party had stepped out with their toddler for a while. Without fuss, the food... More

A group of 8 on travel wanted to stay nearby our hotel. We found this delightful restaurant just blocks away. The manager, Michael, booked us both inside and outside to accommodate whatever weather happened that evening. He called us to let us know which was out of the ordinary for a restaurant manage. Fortunately, we were able to eat outside.... More
