We chose this restaurant as we didn't fancy venturing too far from the hotel that evening. We weren't greeted with warm smiles, in fact the waiters didn't seem too friendly at all. When I asked a question about a main course he responded very abruptly....More

There is a nice seating area outside and nice surroundings but lacks atmosphere and the waiters need to smile a bit more. The food was average compared to what else we have had in the area.

Great little restaurant, very well established specialising in Portuguese dishes. We had seafood risotto (excellent) lobster and spaghetti (lobster was tough) and grilled prawns (ok) as mains.

This is a favourite place for me to have lunch in summer as the outside seating area is lovely. The waiters are attentive and efficient as always and it is quiet and peaceful for Funchal. The minute steak,Chips and salad were delicious.

Excellent service with very welcoming and accommodating staff. Both traditional Madeiran food and 'international' dishes offered which overall were very good. Situated in a relaxing garden setting.

We sat in a kind of sunken garden with bananas growing above our heads! The food was very good but the service was rather slow.

Regret to advise this restaurant is most unsuitable in view of the stairs. There is an Italian restaurant on the opposite side of the road which would be fine. If you are in town then go to Amadeus it's a great place to... More
