“super sardines”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

We had a lovely evening meal here. The service was a little slow at first, but the food was delicious. These were the nicest sardines I had had (and the cheapest). The meat and parrot fish dishes were also really good. The meals came with lots of nice salad and chips. We sat in the back street and the atmosphere was good. The menu is extensive and the set meal options are excellent value. We would definitely eat here again.

“GOOD FOR LUNCH TIMES”
Reviewed 12 March 2013

We had a couple of lunches here. The sardines were the cheapest we saw in tourist Funchal. There were 4 of them and they were very tasty, served up with chips and salad. The tuna sandwich is a roll filled with fresh tuna steak - also very tasty, and the house white, a Dao at 8.95 euros was also very acceptable. The service was efficient and polite, but not as friendly as some other restaurants.

“Nice Tapas menu”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

We were attracted by the menu which included 3 set Tapas menus and we wanted something a little different from the rather samey stuff on offer from the other restaurants in the vicinity. We had the meat tapas and the seafood tapas menus and shared them between us. Some items we liked better than others but the on the whole very much enjoyed the seafood, slightly less the meaty options. Tried a bottle of white wine, very acceptable, plus shared a desert. Overall happy.

“dont eat here”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

we tried other tourist menu options at other local restaurants in the old town and all were good but restaurant tropicana was terrible - all we can say is dont eat here - pay a few more euros and you will get a far better meal in the old town. The worst meal of our holiday.

“Nice food at a very reasonable price”
Reviewed 16 December 2012

This restaurant in the old part of Funchal doesn't look of much, and only one chinese waiter speaks reasonably well English, but 10.90 Euro for a very nice 3 course set menu - including an excellent fish soup, a choise of the "national dishes": the deep sea Espada fish, or the Espetada meat on the stick, and a nice fresh fruit dessert - definitely makes it worth a visit. We came back twice in a week :-)
