We ate here on the 1st night of our holidays and it was very friendly and welcoming start to our week. Tables inside and out, garlic bread to die for, all found freshly cooked and very tasty. Good to have a laugh and joke with the waiter/owner.

In Funchal there are so many restaurants that you may wonder if eating is the only thing people do. So it´s no problem finding a place to eat. The problem is to find the good restaurant(s). While strolling in the alleys behind the cathedral we found some small restaurants and after scanning the menus we decided to have our dinner... More

Lovely restaurant in Funchal. Had lunch here and were very pleased with the quality of food for the price. My husband had the sea bass, which was a good sized cutlet from a large fish, very moist with salad and boiled potatoes. I had the steak with house sauce which was cooked just as I like it and came with... More

We ate at Dos Amigos on our first evening in Funchal. This was a very nice experience. The service was polite, the food was tasty and the prices were more than reasonable. What more can I say? They have fruit salad on the menu and they have ice cream. I took the chance and asked fruit salad WITH ice cream.... More

This restaurant is located on a quiet small street - which is really nice if you want to sit outside! We had really nice dinner - service was good and food really tasty. It seemed that there was some sort of trouble tough - we both felt really sick after we ate here. :(

We were told about this restaurant by a friend of my daughter and whilst it is very unassuming from the outside it serves delicious food at an excellent price. The steaks were cooked perfectly, as were the beef skewers and the homemade cassata dessert was really lovely. The waiter was very friendly and chatty and added to the enjoyment of... More

Four visits to the Cantinho dos Amigos in 10 days and we kept seeing the same international customers each time because once spotted it is well worthy of a return visit or more. Unlike many Funchal you are not hassled in, but once you are be prepared for Walter and his eccentric brand of table waiting that contributes very much... More

While looking for relaxed/local places to eat during our October holiday in Funchal and after much comparison of touristy menus a Madeiran lady in a embroidery shop in the Rue Dos Murcas pointed us to the Cantinho dos Amigos where she regularly ate. It is a small restaurant with indoor and street tables off the beaten track in a small... More
