About
A envolvência da arte com o requinte da cozinha francesa dos anos 50 e 60. O Restaurante Goya é uma verdadeira surpresa arqueada à arte e à pintura. Todo o espaço está enriquecido com afrescos realizados pelos pintores Wolfgang Lass e Alexander, sendo um dos afrescos uma réplica de um dos quadros de Francisco de Goya, pintor espanhol. Nos armários forrados de tecido adamascado dispersos pela sala estão colocadas coleções de pratos assinados. O restaurante dispõe da sua própria garrafeira, o que possibilita aos clientes escolherem os seus vinhos. O Goya é um espaço que fascina quem lá entra. A decoração de requintado gosto é uma das caraterísticas que contribui para o encantamento da casa. Já

It took three years to re-visit Goya and write a new review. So, this time we visited Goya twice during our stay. Both times we were more than happy with their dishes and service. The interiors are stylish and service runs smoothly with smiles. The...courses are placed aesthetically on the plates. Perhaps our favourite number one was sauteed prawns with citrus brine - which was an absolutely delicious starter. As mains, we had roasted pork, duo of fish, filet steak and chicken cordon bleu. All of those were tasty and it is impossible to say which one is our number one as a main course. Same problem applies to our fondant, brule and souffle desserts. During our first visit we enjoyed their concept menu, which was a very wallet-friendly solution. During our second visit we benefitted from Fork special price, which, with some extras, made the visit unbelivielably economical. It is easy to recommend Goya because of their very good price/quality relation. Our only comment is that during our first visit we sat on the terrace and the noise from by-passing cars is strong - especially local buses are loud.More

Similar to one or two other local restaurants in that it offers a concept menu with choices of anything from the main menu. Each course is accompanied by wines too. All very nice quality. The atmosphere is very pleasant indeed, perhaps even slightly more-traditional than...many (classic artwork on the walls, chandelliers instead if bright modern lights) which adds to the ambience. This restaurant is always on our agenda when we visit Funchal.More

We went on a Thursday which is the night the soprano and her pianist were entertaining the diners. The food was delicious and free show topped up a great evening. We came here 3 years ago and will definitely be coming again next year

Goya is a very comfortable restaurant with interesting ‘oldie world’ decor. Service by Maitre D’ Jose and three smartly dressed waitresses is impeccable and our request for a 15 minute break between courses and very hot plates for main dishes was meticulously observed. We chose...from the Concept Menu. Bonne Bouche. Croquette of sausage…okay but nothing special. Starters. Carpaccio of tuna with salad and walnuts. Tuna was a most unusual grey colour Sorbet. Intensely well flavoured mango sorbet no bigger than a small marble. Mains. Confit of duck with a caramelised red berry sauce properly cooked but run of the mill vegetables of Brussels sprouts and carrots were dull . Desserts . Vanilla ice cream and sliced mango and a rather heavy Tiramisu were just okay. Wines. This is our area of greatest concern. Both white and red wines were liberally served but were pretty sharp and acidic We later discovered that they retail at a very cheap price. We do not expect top rated , expensive wines on a Concept Menu but would strongly suggest that Goya offer higher quality wines than these. Overall an enjoyable evening and would probably return but only subject to an assurance of better chosen wine.More

We were looking forward to returning to Goya for the concept menu and diva evening after a long absence due to covid. We weren’t disappointed. The decor, ambience, food, wine and entertainment is still as good as ever. The service is impeccable and unobtrusive. The...entertainment is second to none. Thank you to everyone at Goya for a wonderful evening. We look forward to returning next year. Definitely a place to visit when you are in Madeira.More
