“Average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Nice fish but nothing special, bland vegetables. Most restaurants in the Old Town seem to serve the same food. Fish with banana, beef on stone or tuna. I think our waiter tried to be funny, I still find it a bit odd when a waiter says I can take my jumper off to sunbathe in the restaurant. Not my kind of humour though.

This restaurante is situated in the old town of funchal near the cable car station. It is very good for lunch which is usually on the terrace, or you can go inside if you want They even made us a lunch for our plane journey!Evening meal is excellent - good food nicely presented, staff very attentive and good fun. Not too expensive.

“Not as good as other restaurants in the area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

Very friendly and welcoming but I felt the restaurants in the street behind were better. My husband enjoyed his fish but my beef skewer was just average.

“"O Tapassol" Terrific”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Upstairs for lunch. Best in Town.
Food and service second to none. We tried others but kept returning. Great fun with staff. We were half board so explored for lunch . Found nothing to compete.

The staff here seem to genuinely care that you have a good experience, and the food is lovely. We went as a party of 5 and everyone of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal
