Rather than opting for one of the more obvious choices in the Old Town, give this place a try. Tucked away on Rua Ivens behind the Municipal Gardens, it is easy to overlook this gem, which is a pity because it's too good to miss. A wide range of mainly local dishes are beautifully cooked and served with ready smiles... More

Always busy and crowded but the reason is the excellent food and service. A great selection of food on the menu and particularly good fresh fish. Centrally located in Funchal. Doesn't look like a tourist place from the outside but those who visit once come back for more

This was recommended by a local and they were right. Fabulous traditional restaurant, excellent fish and meats. Friendly, efficient service. Lunchtime specials very good value. Became our favourite, visited 3 times during our week in Funchall.

Dos Combatentes is a very nice restaurant with very good service, good food, large portions and reasonable prices. Because of all these facts and the extremely delicious octopus, Dos Combatentes was the only restaurant during my stay in Madeira which I visited twice. Give it a try, you won't be dissapointed!

The restaurant is quite small and very popular. We had booked and were shown straight to our table. There were people coming in on the off chance, and while they did get a table, they had to go away for 20-30 minutes before one was available. The atmosphere was relaxed and active. Despite the place being busy we were at... More

Great experience, me and my wife had a cremy vegetable soup for starter and parot fish and seebass - fish was prepared in perfection. They have also a geat vine list. Service and atmosphere also great, lot of locals having a lunch too, be early or make a reservation.

Good choice of food on the menu that will suit most tastes, well presented by smiling staff. Not a huge restaurant and so the tables a fairly close together but, all fine when seated. Good selection of wines to go with the food and good knowledge of them by the staff. The restaurant is situated on the right hand corner... More

We ended to this place with all the family, and we've been delighted by the food. Had great fish soup and tuna steak, then passion fruit pudding as dessert. The red wine suggested by the maitre was excellent. The service was good as well. Definitely worth going back.
