“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Visited this excellent restaurant three times, twice at lunchtime once for dinner and was more than satisfied with food and service.
Lunch time is particularly good as there is a very good snack menu at very reasonable prices and no pressure to order from an a la carte menu.

“Fantastic Food great friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

This has to be a must in Funchal if you enjoy a good steak, ate there twice on our recent holiday . Tony has done a fine job with this Restuarant , the food is by far the best we had on our two weeks in Madeira. Good knowledgeable staff and great wines, I can recommend Steak & Prawns it was fantastic and the sauces are excellent .
But don't just take my word for it "Try It Yersel !".Gerry Mac.

“Fine Food with Friendly Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We dined here twice on our recent holiday. Food excellant, good atmosphere, friendly staff and great service all at a reasonable price. It may be an idea to book, we did'nt but were lucky to have a table for two near window and were able to watch the sun go down, what more can you ask for!

“Perfect as always for Peter and Linda!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Just come back from a week staying at the Pestana Palms and we dined here as we always do. The food was great, the service perfect and the staff are so friendly and helpful. It was good to see them all again and we were very impressed with the enlarged premises, very light and airy and it certainly filled up while we were there. Tony, Alberto, David and Bruno are very attentive and make you feel special regardless of how busy they are and Gracie and her kitchen staff prepare super meals. Looking forward to seeing them all again in June/July.
