“Got more than you paid”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Can not wait to write my comments. Before we went to this restaurant, my husband checked on this website and found out some really good reviews. We went there at 7pm. It was nice set up, clean and comfortable. After a free drink, each of us ordered a set menu. We were so impressed when our food was coming. Good portion, fresh ingredients, well presented, of course, taste delicious. Just before our dessert, we had got another free drink - I believe it was a punch. Because we were so full, we could not finish the free hand made chocolate. The bill was not big, but the value of food and service was great. Strongly agree with other comments. Please do try. :)

“our favourite - do try”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

Liked it so much we went back during the same holiday, which is rare for us. A lovely small dining room, waiter and owner both have excellent English and look after you well. Bread, sparkling wine, a digestif and a home made chocolate are all included in the price, a la carte or E17 for two courses. That menu had a choice of five starters and five mains. Beautifully presented, with fresh vegetables. House wine is very good, and the bill less than E50. Much better than other well reviewed restaurants in the area.

“excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

The quality of the food here was immeasurably better than the food on offer at the hotel we stayed at. ( It also cost considerably less!) The service was friendly and quietly professional. The welcoming glass of fizz and the chocolate truffle at the end were delightful touches.

Seek this restaurant out!!

“Good food, great service, good value.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

Unprepossessing from the street but inside you get the comlimentary glass of cava followed by attentive service, a good menu and nice, simple, but well prepared and presented food. Straightforward, simple, good food and good value. Euros 50 for 2 including starters, maincourse and a bottle of the house white. Well done.

“Good value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

L'Osteria is still our favourite restaurant in Funchal. The service is friendly and attentive. The food is beautifully cooked and presented. I especially enjoyed the sole followed by crepe suzette - delicious. The complimentary extras, like the glass of sparkling wine to begin the meal,
were very much appreciated. Good value for money. Definitely worth a visit.
