We had an excellent dinner. Good starters, mussels and marinated (Gravad lax) salmon. Tuna and a very tasty salmon pasta rosata as mains. Relaxed atmosphere. Not pretentious , but just focused on quality! And for a good price….We booked straight for another return day.

We visited on Easter Sunday & hadn't booked but Lily was able to find a table for us at her busy restaurant - full of families out for Easter Sunday lunch. There was a set Easter lunch menu which looked very good. My husband &...I both chose the fish & Lily offered us another fish dish off the menu which suited us even more! The fish was the best I've ever tasted - cooked to perfection - melt in the mouth! The accompanying vegetables were extremely tasty too. We were made to feel very welcome. We'd love to go again if we had the opportunity.More

We went to Machico (and Canical) for the day to visit the Whaling Museum (very interesting) and Lily's after we saw it in a guide book and liked the TripAdvisor reviews. So glad that we made the effort! The views were great and the food...even better. Fish soup, French style squid and cheese and salami starters all very tasty and beautifully prepared (great local garlic bread too). My tuna tapenade was super, as was the grilled fish fillet of the day, both served with lovely veg and sauteed potatoes. The homemade pasta with tuna was equally flavoursome and absolutely packed with fish, tomatoes etc. We didn't have room for dessert. Service was great (including a tip to visit Pico do Facho - which we did, thank you!) from, I assume, the owner. We are so glad that we based our day around this, what a treat. And, although not 'cheap', so much cheaper than most restaurants in Funchal... and therefore an absolute bargain for those of us used to UK restaurant prices. Thank you to the whole team for a great lunch.More

Very nice restaurant with lovely food. The service war also very friendly. We enjoyed our stay very much. The home-made paté was delicious, the beef with Madeira wine excellent. Thank you for the hints with the Miradouro da Portela and the Miradouro do Pico do...Facho, amazing views! Thank you so much for this wonderful experience!More

The food was really great, just perfectly baked steak. We were there at night so could not see the view but it should be nice cause its up a hill (you do need a car to get there). The ower served us herself and was...very kind. Prices: more expensive than in other good restaurants we had dinner but still affordable for Europeans.More

White tuna was delicious (day's speciality, not on menu)! Food made with love. Owner was sympathic. If you are in this area, give this place a shot.

We enjoyed our dinner here. Fresh delicious fish of the day. Good service. The only bad thing is location. Great view but you need a car to get here.

Most incredible lamb stew found anywhere in the world (the fish was also perfect). Lily was a most gracious host and our server was wonderfully. The wine selection was incredible. So glad we stopped!!

It is a little way out. No problem if you have a car. We took a taxi and believe me it was worth it even though there are lots of other nice places to eat in town
