What a charming little place off a delightful square. Reservations are a must! Staff most helpful, food deliciously prepared and presented. We went twice! Would have gone more if time allowed.

If you want to go, make sure to get a reservation. Right in the center of the city, great location. Food was great! Service was great! A little more expensive that I was expecting, but it was worth it. Very good!

We came to this restaurant twice during our visit to Funchal. The food was very good, and the staff were very friendly though the service was a bit slow at times. We really enjoyed it, particularly the espetada. I was also a massive fan of the Laughing Cow-like cheese served with the bread before the meal. Thoroughly recommended.

We ate here on two occasions, both in the evening, as we found the food,staff and ambiance excellent. We tried the local specialties of scabbard fish with banana and the espetada along with a steak dish and pork - all excellent. The first evening we had not booked a table and although busy we were found a lovely table in... More

The first time we ate here at lunch it was nearly closing time, and they still were happy to serve us. This great service continued and on our second visit was even better. The food is ecellent, fish, meat and pudding all beautifully cooked and tasty. It felt really good value compared to other nearby resturants. I cannot recommend this... More

In a corner of the beautiful green and very centrally located Jardim Municipal is the 'Restaurante Dos Combatentes' (the Restaurant of the Combatants). I had been wondering about this unusual name for an eating-place. Maybe before there had been a meeting-place here of war veterans. The restaurant is in an attractive turn-of-the-last century building, inside the decor is modern with... More

This place was close to us so we decided to try it one evening based on TripAdvisor reviews. The food and drinks were very good. Although we made a reservation well ahead of time we ended up with a poor table. I might have given it 5 stars if we'd had a better one. It's difficult when you see a... More

All food was reasonably price and I chose the local delicacy scabbard fish with banana and it was delicious. My husband chose the fish screwer. Our... More

We were a group of 17. The staff were friendly and efficient. The service was great and the quality and quantity of the good was excellent. Most people had different dishes but they all arrived together and were hot and very tasty. I had scabbard which was one of the best I'd tasted. It was all very reasonably priced. I'd... More
