Alcoholic drinks are served with free nibbles and the 'Picado' which is chips mixed with either beef or chicken in gravy is superb. It's a great place to watch football too with numerous tv's able to show more than one match at a... More

We ate here twice on our visit, we just had snacks but they were scrumptious. The burgers are homemade and very tasty and the steak sandwich (prego) are delicious. I'd definitely recommend this place for a drink and a bite to eat.

This 'White House' was recomended locally and proved to be really good value for food quality and friendly, professional waiters. The outside front of the pub is usually full of people smoking and drinking. There are two ladies at the entrance who ask you if you are eating or just drinking. If eating you get a complementary drink and are... More

A very quaint pub. We have eaten here 3 times...always for a prego. Great service. Friendly staff. I am sure we will return again. We don't stop in Funchal but make the effort to visit here on our trips.

The White House Pub & Restaurant. Food and drinks OK but people smoking inside and out so not very nice for non-smokers.

Well located above the road, this is a great spot for a leisurely drink, a snack, lunch or dinner. Good menu and excellent, well-cooked food with super-friendly and helpful staff. Can eat out on the terrace or indoors - usually has the TV with the inevitable football on but not at all noisy or intrusive. Go a second time and... More
