This location is okay to browse as but, don't be tempted to buy and especially, the various exotic fruits as you'll probably be over-charged as my wife found out the hard way! The lower ground is where the fish market is and probably the most...More

As expected were we overwhelmed by the range of fruit and especially fish on offer. It’s been great to order those we could remember for meals the rest of our holiday.

No. Nearby are many restaurants in a re developed part of old Funchal. You will find plenty of choice along the narrow street that runs up to the fort at Santa Maria.
