Olives is located in a somewhat unattractive building, but don't let that put you off - get there early for a table on the balcony and you'll forget all about it with views over the harbour. The staff are very friendly and helpful, recommending dishes...More

We were disappointed by our visit to Olives considering the reviews/ranking on Trip Advisor! The food was good & reasonably priced, the server was a little timid & softly spoken. The location was awful! The place echo'd, had no atmosphere & my husband was seated...More

Our visit at Olives was fantastic! We are not the easiest couple to host - one is vegan the other dairy free. Nonetheless, Olives did a more than great job to suit our needs. The food was beautiful, cooked to perfection and the service top...More

Olives Restaurant is influenced by many different cuisines, as Madeiran cuisine is. It is all under the same interpretation, the Mediterranean cuisine, in which Portugal and Madeira have the major influence. In our space you can choose from two different sets, interior, around a foyer with a beautiful art deco/nouveaux inspired staircase, or the outside terrace with a view for the city market area and Funchal cruise port. From the menu you have as options several fish and meat dishes, or you can choose from our vegetarian/vegan menu.
