Can recommend the Paella, sea bass, and tiger prawns... Reasonably priced, something of a lengthy wait, maybe it was a one off but proved worth the wait anyway... Pleasant locale, Attentive staff... Plenty of TVs for the sports enthusiast, football football...of course...

Arrived late to Funchal the receptionist recommended this place. Perfect for what we wanted I had the fish rice and my husband a grilled fish, both really good and no long wait. Asked for a dry red and the waiter selected perfectly. Very reasonably priced.
