Description: Olives Restaurant is influenced by many different cuisines, as Madeiran cuisine is. It is all under the same interpretation, the Mediterranean cuisine, in which Portugal and Madeira have the major influence. In our space you can choose from two different sets, interior, around a foyer with a beautiful art deco/nouveaux inspired staircase, or the outside terrace with a view for the city market area and Funchal cruise port. From the menu you have as options several fish and meat dishes, or you can choose from our vegetarian/vegan menu.

I had enjoyed the food very much at Olives when they were based in Funchal town centre and was looking forward to visiting their new location. First of all let me say that the new location overlooking the sea definitely added to the overall experience. Most importantly the food had not lost its high standard and if anything some new dishes were a welcome addition to their already superb menu. This restaurant still does not need "whipper ins" to provide its business the food, service and location will make it a go to location for discerning diners.

Rack of lamb and mash Devine!

This place is defiantly worth a visit.
Don't get me wrong this is Nouveau cuisine - the chef takes great pride in presentation which is very endearing.
Although portion size is limited the food is Devine!

An excellent meal with terrific service!

this is a small restaurant near the lido, it doesn't look much as you walk in but the food is the best you will find and at a great price, the chef is very passionate about his food and it shows..
