Dining here was a lovely experience - from start to finish. Traditional Madeiran dishes, cooked expertly and served by impeccable waiters. In fact, it was such a positive experience (in so many ways) that we were almost tempted to return for a second time during our two week stay! As we arrived fairly early, we were lucky enough to get one of the tables on the top terrace, which overlooks the street below and the sea. We both had soup to start with - delicious - and my main (pork with plums and ginger) was superb! Even now, several weeks later, just writing about it is giving me cravings for another serve! A good selection of wines by the glass, half bottle or bottle and complimentary glasses of Madeira and a final liqueur at the end. Well worth a visit.

The food, service and waiters were all wonderful . We sat on the upstairs terrace, and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Definitely will eat here again.

We have been coming to this restaurant for years and the food is consistently excellent and the staff so helpful. We went on Saturday after an absence of two year's. It certainly did not disappoint. I had a typical madeiran meal. Tomato with onion soup which is the beat I have tasted on the island followed by wonderfully fresh espada fish with banana. Again you get that everywhere but this is the best. I finished with scrumptious passion fruit pudding. My husband Mark had a seafood soup which he said was excellent and then espadada beef on a skewer. He said the quality meat was terrific and very flavousome. His dessert was a wicked banana split. As always customers get a free aperitif and a free liquor at the end of the meal. This time a good blackcurrant liquor. This restaurant should definitely be in the top few in Funchal.

Very conveniently located near the cable car and Madeira Story Museum, this restaurant serves excellent fish and other dishes and the staff are efficient and friendly. We had been recommended this restaurant by a friend, but it’s well worth allowing them to persuade you to go in! Highly recommended.
