If you have fish, as you always should there, you'll get a top-quality meal. Additionally, the staff are friendly and enthusiastic - they seem to love their job! I went twice and will definitely return if in Funchal again.

This has got to be the best fish restaurant we’ve ever been to. The location is superb,sitting above the sea on an elevated dining area. We’ve been to this eatery at least twice every trip and the food has always been superb.

We walked by here many times over the last 3 journeys. Not so much this last trip because the tunnel was closed. The food board is huge (many languages) and has always looked inviting. We knew that we would try it, given a clear evening...More
