Sadly the restaurant is poorly serviced and staffed. We had booked as part of a group of 14 and they were expecting us. Sadly almost an hour on arrival to set our table up and order food and a further hour to get served. It...was not, in my opinion, worth the wait, though some of our group though that some of the dishes were good (special mention to the sweet and sour octopus). The food Al La Carte was expensive, as was the café menu which some of us dined from, there is a set tourist menu which was god value at Euro 13.5 which in hindsight would have been a better option. The location is fabulous, the terrace and views were great but due to the slow service we did not have time to enjoy the gardens before having to leave There was only one lady serving, she was doing her best but it was clearly too much. It took almost as long to pay as it did to order, again not enough staff. The bread experience was great (I’m definitely going to try adding sweet potato at home) If the service was better I would recommend this but probably advise sticking to the set tourist menu fore day visitorsMore

We had lunch in the big chalet type restaurant, with fantastic views from the balcony. We ordered the grill - beef espetada, pluma iberico and veg espetada. The portions are huge and the quality ok, though not extraordinary. Great stop near Santana.More

On the edge of a cliff, with amazing views you will be in the best restaurant in Madeira. The service is excellent and the food is even better. Regardless if you prefer grilled meat (beef skewers, steaks), slow cooked lamb or various fish - they...have it all.More

We had 3 times dinner here - which means we were not disappointed at all. Nice setting during the day with nice cliff view, outside on terrace. Food is good, prices are correct, service sometimes a bit slow. We will be back.More

This was our third time in Quinta do Furão, also our third time in Madeira. But since the last two times were very good, we made a point to go there again. The menu had changed a bit, it is more gourmet, it still has...tradional food which was good. But not amazing like before. We had the "Espetada em pau de louro" . The bread (Pão de Santana) was very good and warm so were the sweet potatos that came with the "espetada". In fact I would just eat the sweet potates and be happy. The biggest problem was the slow service, we waited 20 minutes before they clearned our table and asked about desert (we had to call the waiter). Than another 20 minutes for the desert to arrive. More time for them to bring the bill and pay. You spend 2 and half hours easy ... The view is amazing if you stay at the balcony. The area outside and next to the hotel is very nice.More

Visited here for lunch but upon arrival we were turned away even though it was in the middle of their normal opening hours with the excuse that they were holding a large event and did not want to keep the restaurant open.
