Over the past 3 years we have been very regular visitors to this restaurant and went there four times over Christmas and New Year. Sadly, whilst the food remains very good the service has declined. Since the new Manager/owner took over there seems to be a bit of an cold and uncomfortable atmosphere in the place (as well as being... More

We had been there before and the food was good, so we decided to go there again. This time around, the food was ok but the service was simply TERRIBLE!!! They charged us things we didn't order, didn't apologize and we had to pay it anyways!! I DO NOT recommend!!!!!

I've been coming regularly to Petiscos , probably over a hundred visits since 2008. It's not the same without Chef Antonio's presence, and Miguel is severely missed in front of house. Without his authoritve and vigilant presence the waiting staff could be chaotic. It was lovely to see a new friendly face in Paz who adds great value when she... More

Our first night in Funchal, we ate dinner here. Lovely service, very friendly. Food was very good, but especially their suggestion that the octopus was very fresh and being made into a salad. We tried it and it was the best I have ever had. So much fun to have staff help us select our food.

We have just come back from another trip to the Porto Mare Hotel, fabulous as usual. We found this restaurant, not having seen it before, even though close to the hotel. We went there three times and enjoyed every meal. I had pork in wine and coriander the first time we went and I couldn't believe how gorgeous it was,... More

I have come yo this establishment for quite some time and I had the Tuna medallions. When I asked for this dish I was told by one extremely nice staff member that it was no longer fresh but rather "frozen". It honestly stopped me liking the restaurant because the reason I came here so often was for the quality of... More

Had the recommended steak and wild boar, which were both brilliant and not expensive at all. The staff were very efficient and helpful with wine choices. An excellent meal with great service and very enjoyable. We'll be back before we leave for sure.
