It still remains one of our favourite places to eat, among the many new restaurants that are now open in the city.

Others had said the same but for tasty food and first class service this for me is the best restaurant in Funchal. I've been holidaying in the city now for over 20 years and whilst the owners have moved location several times the standards have been maintained throughout. Food is a mixture of classic steak and fish dishes plus some... More

We have been coming to this restaurant since it opened. The quality and choice of the food remain excellent and the service is impeccable. The only change is that now it is much bigger having opened an additional dining area. This used be an adjacent shop which was converted last week into a common area with the original. This makes...

Small restaurant, seats about 24 in one sitting. Excellent Portugese menu, a good balance between fish & meat dishes. Excellent quality of food & supplied with good attentive service , at what we may consider fair value.

After reading some of the reviews on here regarding X Tonel I was eager to dine there with my partner and my parents and I was not disappointed in the slightest. The restaurant itself is located by Reids Hotel and Pestana Village and Miramar and whilst some people have suggested a better location might just score them that last half... More
