We visited Madeira earlier this month from the UK. Due to the previous reviews of this restaurant, I decided to book in advance and am so glad I did. We ate there on two occasions and each meal was superb! My husband had the beef...espetada and myself the chicken one the first time and we both had the fillet steak on the stone the next night. It was a fun experience and the first time I had to wear a bib in a restaurant 😂 The service was brilliant too. We will certainly be back to visit on our next trip to Madeira, but will book more nights with them. Well done guys and keep up the great work! 👏More

This holiday we discovered Leenos through Tripadvisor. It is very close to the apartment we were staying, and is getting good reviews. Knowing we had to book in advance we tried email, but got a reply that reservations had to be made either in person...or over the phone (so that a time can be negotiated). Not a problem, we made a booking and had our meal. We both had the GrilledPrawns. These were perfectly cooked and a very generous helping. The staff were friendly and efficient. We saw many people turn up on spec and have to be turned away. We decide we had to come again, so made a reservation before we left the restaurant. Our second visit My wife had ChickenKiev, which she said was exquisite, and I had Espada with Prawns, anothe great choice. The menu is quite varied and the price very reasonable. They are not taking advantage of their popularity to up the prices. Definitely on our "approved list" for future visits to Madeira,More

the food was just right, and the service was just right. I'm allergic to raw banana, but thorough cooking changes the key molecules and makes it OK. They happily altered the black scabbard and banana recipe for me, and it was delicious - surprisingly great...combination. Great fun, also, with the chicken on a stone.More

Must book in advance, the food and service are excellent. From the moment you arrive you are looked after. We visited twice on our recent holiday and we can highly recommend the fillet steak on the stone. The team who look after you are friendly...and are always attentive when you dine there. If you eat anywhere in Funchal make sure you visit and I am certain if you have time to revisit you will, we did.More

We went at Leeno's for lunch right after we arrived in Funchal. It proved to be such a good choice! The starters were great: Bolo do caco and limpets - sooo deliciously prepared. Our main dishes were black scabbard with banana and grilled prawns. Both...came with steamed vegetables, simple and tasty. We also had passionfruit pudding for desert which was very good. The waiter recommended us a very matching white wine and he was also very attentive to us all the time. Greatly recommend this place! Fresh produce prepared very well. Thank you!More

Went here twice during our holiday and food was impeccable both times. Service was great - waiters very friendly and attentive, wine recommendation was spot on. Some food intolerances in our party and Leeno’s catered for it perfectly, portion sizes are generous and prices are...reasonable. The grilled black scabbard with prawns and the chicken espetada were both unbelievable! Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Funchal.More

Booked a table so we could try a "steak on a stone" meal , the starters we had were Sautéed mushrooms and sautéed shrimps cooked perfectly and not small portions. We ordered fillet steak on the stone for the main course 18.50 euros we were...not prepared for how much meat would turn up, At least 3 times as large as a fillet from say Miller and Carter. Amazing value. The service was first class and all the waiters had a good sense of humour and appreciated a bit of banter. Overall a delicious meal and amazing value.More

Leeno’s is always busy and no wonder. It is a very pleasant and casual restaurant where outstandingly friendly & efficient service is always evident. Leeno and his brother are out front while another brother runs the kitchen. This place specialises in grilled food and chicken,...salmon and huge steaks are carefully cooked and of the highest quality. All are served with good chips and salad. The house wine is very drinkable and amazing value at just 12 euros. The place buzzes with diners ‘ conversations and there is a lovely atmosphere whether you choose to dine inside or out. Strongly recommended but book at least one day in advance or you are likely to be one of many turned away due to the popularity of this pleasant and superbly run restaurant which is one of our favourites in Funchal. Closed Saturdays.More

I was pointed in the direction of Leenos by some friends in the U.K. who absolutely love it. We weren’t disappointed. Excellent value for money, with fabulous quality food cooked with love and care. The customer service experience is also excellent with friendly attentive staff...overseen by Leeno himself. Highly recommended but you need to book in advance to save disappointment.More
