We stayed in Funchal last July and again in May this year. On both occasions we ate here and were very impressed. The food, ambience and service were excellent. However, we have just returned from a 10 day stay and couldn't wait to visit again but, unfortunately, we were very disappointed. On every previous visit we were greeted at the entrance to the restaurant and handed a small glass of Madeira wine. Not so on this occasion. The restaurant was very busy but instead of being told this, we were taken to a table tucked away at the side of the establishment with dirty tablecloths and broken glass, debris under the table. We asked to be moved, which the waitress didn't appreciate. She moved us to a better table when one became free but not with good grace. The food was as good as before but was spoilt by the slow service and our drinks being forgotten. All in all, a big let down, particularly as this is not a cheap place to eat!
