"The worst part of the evening for me, was when there were people smoking in the outside area and the smoke came into the restaurant. There are tables set up in the entrance passage way and I guess that guests are able to smoke at their tables (I did not check this out). I think it would be best if... More

We have been here every year for the past 3 years. Valentines was a set menu and not everyone enjoyed it. However I am sure the usual menu is still as good. Bit dissatisfied with the valentines but would still go back!

This is a restaurant that we always go to when we visit Funchal. One of our favourite restaurants in Funchal, the lunch time menu is extremely good value. Staff are friendly and take care of their customers. Highly recommended

Bad night at the office for service. Fortunately the food was superb- duck and filet mignon saved the night from disaster! The side corridor is cold and a forgotten zone: walk out if offered here! No menus until we asked, wine waiter disappeared without trace, heaters taken away - all the fuss is inside, but tables were available which annoyed.... More

Friends had recommended Armazon to us and we certainly were not disappointed. It is so superb we went twice during our week in Funchal. The dining room has a lovely atmosphere, the tables are well spaced out, and some gentle guitar music created a wonderful background. The staff are very attentive, but not overly so. On both occasions we chose... More

This is a lovely old building and the meal was very good. We were surprised to find that we enjoyed octopus and would never normally have tried it, that's where a tasting menu comes into its own. We also had the premium wines which came from Madeira - another lovely experience. Service was attentive but not intrusive and they were... More

The food and waiter were great, but we ate in their upstairs room which lacked atmosphere. Go, particularly if you fancy a change from traditional Madeiran fare, but specifically ask to be seated in the main dining room downstairs.

We have been visiting this restaurant for four years and it just gets better. The staff are excellent and the food the best we have eaten on the island. The menu has changed this year and is far more interesting and imaginative than many other restaurants.
