There was plenty of food but the suckling pig was a bit overdone and the sprouts were very bitter. I love sprouts but they killed them. The turkey and the potatoes were very... More

We walked to the restaurant from Funchal town centre, it's a bit of a trek but not too bad. We chose to sit on the balcony, which gives brilliant views over Funchal. The service we got was excellent, prompt and helpful, and as with other reviews the food was well cooked and very good. We had a mixed meat skewer,... More

We got to Zarcos soaking wet and probably earlier than most to the Clientele so it seemed quiet. I asked the waitress what the vegetables were and because she could not explain in English that I could understand she came and showed me which I very much appreciated. The Spit roasts are hung and we are left to serve ourselves.... More

Wow, what a fantastic restaurant. the skewered meat meals are just delicious and really good value. Their Mojitos were fantastic, the best we had all trip. Sitting out on the balcony watching the sunset over Funchal was just magical.
