Veal and steak to die for. Had dinner there twice during a one-week stay in Funchal and for my money the best meal, beating Vivaldi's, Cris's, Hemingways, Mozart's and one other who's name I've forgotten.

If you like Casa Vehla, you'll like it here. Traditional Madeiran food, cooked beautifully, in a pleasant room with a nice atmosphere. Efficient, friendly service.

Good food served well. It was pretty full, so booking is essential - we saw people being turned away.
