following a tip by a fellow guest, we decided to try this restaurant. we didn't book, but went early. fortunately we were able to get a table. the food was lovely, the desert was delicious. we sat next to a gentleman who had been visiting the restaurant for 66 years!!! he absolutely loved the restaurant. we will definitely be back when we return next year.

Our group of 10 was fitted in with ease though the balcony suited couples better. Good food and excellent service meant it was the only restaurant in town our group went to twice!

We went twice following the many good reviews. Got there early at 1830 ahead of the rush. The service is very good. The bread rolls and spreads given in the couvert can dent your appetite if you are not careful. On our first visit we had fish and both dishes were very salty. However we decided to give it a second try two days later and told the waiter of our concerns over the salty dishes. He was most apologetic and my wife had squid and I persevered with another fish dish. Both dishes were first class and the coffee was superb. Glad we returned just ask about the salt is my best tip.

Restaurante Dos Combatentes is located behind the Municipal Gardens in Funchal. A traditional restaurant serving home style meals, including Madeira's infamous scabbard fish. The dishes we enjoyed were simple, but presented well, and were made with quality local ingredients. The staff were friendly, really knowledgeable, and more than happy to assist with our menu selections - we received honest advice about a local wine that was also welcomed. In addition, the dessert menu is notable, with an unbelievably rich chocolate mousse. Unsurprisingly, with a restaurant so consistently this good - we return each year - it is probably worth booking ahead. Overall, an intelligent dining experience, in a restaurant that always seems to provide a pleasant evening ambience.
