Great views from the terrace across the Bay of Funchal. As you would expect, everything is done properly, the sandwiches, scones and cakes were all lovely. We were offered more if we wanted them, but we were too full! We declined the champagne as we felt it was a bit too expensive. If you like afternoon tea in really lovely surroundings, give it a go.

We indulged in this uniquely English tradition at Funchals first hotel because it was on the “must do” list.The staff were charming and engaging as well as attentive and the choice of teas was impressive.
My family was offered additional sandwiches and scones which meant that you could have been more indulgent if you wanted to.The atmosphere was wonderfully opulent and grand without being stuffy.
It is something that you should experience once in a lifetime as although the actual afternoon tea is the same as you could get at any top London hotel at Reid’s Palace it also comes with a Winston Churchill connection.

For a special treat you should not miss a trip to Reid’s for afternoon tea. 5 star service and 5 star food. A must for any trip to Madeira.

We had the most amazing afternoon at Reid's. Fabulous afternoon tea, the staff are wonderful and make the whole experience a real treat. We had 10 days in Madeira, and the couple of hours spent at Reid's was the absolute highlight.

Unhurried and plentiful, the views were wonderful and the staff very friendly. A good way to begin a week in Madeira.
