“Brilliant Food, Brilliant Host”
Reviewed December 5, 2011

This has become our most used bar/restaurant ech time we return to our timeshare at The Residence in The Lido area. The food is really good, the prices competitive and Dino and his family really make us feel at home. The Espada and also the battered Fish and Chips specials on a Friday are especially good. We'll certainly see you again next year Dino.

“great food, value for money, friendly staff, views over the sea wow!”
Reviewed June 16, 2011

if you are staying a the the lido area of funchal, or indeed staying at the eden mar or porto mare hotels, pop down to the barracuda bar restaurant and meet dino and his family for some great food , (PIRI PIRI CHICKEN WOW) if its not on the menu ask dino, and watch out for his wit and banter, the views are fantastic at this tiny back corner of the eden mar hotel centre.
BOOKING is advised as they can get very busy.

“Good value- best espada -”
Reviewed May 17, 2011

Use this small cafe/bar often - special fish & chips on Frday very good value for money and better than anything we get at home. The espada especially is as good or better than you get in more luxurious establishments.

“Home from home”
Reviewed October 11, 2010

We used this small friendly restaurant many times, for coffee, snacks and meals. It is run by Dino and his family and they are a very welcoming family. Dino spent 15 years working in England and speaks English like a native as well as understanding the English sense of humour. The food is tasty, hot and inexpensive with the usual tourist offerings but also a daily special. You can also get a full english breakfast if you want! The main attraction was on a Friday night when the special was fish, chips and peas, and the restaurant gets booked up pretty quickly. The food is a bit chips with everything but it is good and tasty and you can eat well or about 20 euros for 2 including drinks. Give it a try you'll see what I mean.
