We visited this restaurant recently on our visit to Funchal. The restaurant has changed, there is less choice on the menu, but the food was very good and well presented. We were disappointed with the range of starters; when we went to the Paradise restaurant 2 years ago, we really enjoyed the starters and in particular the Avocado starters. However... More

Having visited the Paradise Restaurant for many years now it was a shock to see a new name over the entrance and lots of new staff. However we are glad we gave it a try, the food and wine was very good and reasonable priced. The deep fried vegetable starter with tartar sauce is a must try as is their... More

The second year we have been here although it has changed hands this year. The setting is lovely overlooking the Atlantic. The food was delicious but not a huge selection. Try the pink lambrusco sangria, full of fruit and low alcohol if you want to have a steadier night!

This was one of our favourite restaurants last year, but not this year. It would appear that it is now under new management. The menu has been revised, and is less attractive, and has less choice than before. Change is not always for the best.

On Saturday nights the restaurant provides entertainment with traditional Madeiran dancing on the terrace overlooking the bay. The setting is very nice but the food and service were poor. Soggy chips and tasteless veg were served with total disinterest by the staff. When it arrived the bill was wrong but there were no apologies or explanation. Not a restaurant we... More

Tried this place because it looked good and in an great setting. Although the food was good the staff and their atitude was very poor. No smiles, once we had our wine was expected to refill our glasses which I don't expect. Had to ask for coffee to be served twice. Wouldn't recomment this place simply because ot the staff's...

We ate here twice during our recent stay and had 2 lovely meals. The view was out of this world. Very friendly staff, will definately go back on our next visit.

We chose to eat here mainly based on the lovely sea views from the open air terrace. My wife had the scabbard fish, whilst I chose the pork fillet. Both came with potatoes and vegetables. Our meals were fine, particularly the fish which was served as a boneless fillet, unlike a more expensive restaurant earlier in the week. The desserts... More

The entrance to the Paradise Restaurant is quite understated, there's a blue canopy over steps leading down to the restaurant which has a fantastic view over the ocean, we were stunned as we approached and decided immediately that we wanted to eat there. We were so lucky, there were a few groups waiting to be seated but a prime table... More

We first ate at the Paradise on our second night in Funchal and after that we never wanted to go anywhere else. Even though the restaurant was busy the staff were pleasant and attentive, we were served our order hot and in good time. We were not disappointed with the food in any way, trying different dishes from the menu... More
