Had a wonderful meal here January 2015 with family and friends altogether there was ten of us - no problems with the service and food was served in good time. Mixed and varied menu will suit most appetites. Will certainly return.

We ate here on three occasions during our holiday in Funchal. There is a terrace, but we chose to eat inside. Very attentive waiters & a lovely meal

We visited on our last night in Madeira. We'd heard good things but weren't expecting much from our visit. The food was all superb, the wine very good, the views amazing and the staff were very friendly. We had a great time and left stuffed full.

I was at Zarco's for dinner. Espetada with garlic bread and vegetables. Great food and view over Funchal and harbour. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Good food and menu Views beautiful sunset quite a sight. Staff friendly. Was on bus route from our accommodation but if staying in Funchal then a short drive for the food and reviews well worth it.
