“Our secret no more”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

A trip to Funchal would not be complete without a visit to Solar da Ajuda for the best steak on a stone on Madeira.

Hidden away on a side street by the Monumental lido this unassuming eatery has a surprise in store, Joe and his staff don't stand still for long, they can't in this busy little restaurant. It's fast, it's noisey but very friendly.

“Crackin' steak !”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

If you go to one restaurant during your stay make sure this is it. Warm friendly service from joe and his team, and the fillet steak on a stone is a must! You might need to book!

“Steak on a Stone!!”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

I am not a steak eater, but if i could be guaranteed that it would be as good as served here everytime i would eat it more! The fillet steak is beautiful and the concept of serving it on a stone is brilliant! We went back 3 times during our stay as the rest of their menu is fabulous. The staff are friendly and the whole experience was great. Highly recommend!!

“Steak on a stone”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

First time in this restaurant, my wife and son loved the steak on a stone and I had probably the best fillet steak that I've ever had. We booked in to go back tonight and I'll be hard not to have the same meals again.

“Reliable restaurant”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Visited here after a gap of about a year and it is exactly the same. Good food served promptly by smiling staff. As usual I had the steak on a stone. I like that you can order either fillet or sirloin steak and you also have the choice of 2 sizes. A small sirloin was plenty for me. A visit to the excellent salad bar was also included with the meal. Ladies, if you don't like the complimentary liquer at the end ask them for there alternative, a lovely little cocktail which goes by the charming name of "bedtime milk."
