Hello David, Yes you can take either walk the buss road ( Caminho das voltas) or the other very steep road (Caminho do meio). The buss road is the easyest way to walk or by car. Kind Regards, Restaurante Planka

Description
Some of our specialities are served on hot Oak Planks. The hot Oak Planka maintain a nice temperature of the food during the time the meal is consumed but without any further cooking. Pay us a visit and you will be able to enjoy the best view Funchal has to offer while eating tasty meals prepaired with (antibiotic and groth hormone free) veal so called "Carne Mirandesa". If your preference is fish then we sugest our specialties, the wonderful Tuna fish grilled on charcoal grill or the Oven Baked Cod fish or the salmon. Our wines are carefully choosen and of high quality and taste. For reservations visit our website or call us directly.
