“Nice place inexpensive”
Reviewed 13 September 2013 via mobile

We only wanted light lunch for 3 and ordered Tapas no1 which proved far to big for 3 and only €15, and with bolo do caco garlic bread and a litre of wine and coffees came to under €30 including service

Tapas had king prawns,whelks,winckles,mussels,green lip mussels , crab,limpets cockles all in different sauces plus dips.

Very nice, decent price.service relaxed and won't suit all but suited us!

“Nice place for a quick bite”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

We stopped off for a light lunch after stepping off the cable car. Service was friendly; shellfish tapas was very tasty and large portions. Garlic bread was home made and decent. Stopped off for a drink an another day and again the service was efficient and friendly.

“Great budget option with tasty traditional dishes”
Reviewed 8 December 2011

This was a no frills place on the front, and it was refreshing not to have someone badger you to book a table or look at the menu. The food is really well priced, simple and tasty. I especially liked their soup to start (tomato and egg).

“Lil terrace restaurant perfect for light lunch or late afternoon snack”
Reviewed 28 August 2011

After touring Monte and Monte Palace Tropical Garden in the morning this was a short walk from the cable car that took us up the mountain. Outdoor terrace seating allows for no shortage to people watching in the Old Town. We orded grilled Sardines and Scabbard fish and 1/2 liter of local wine, they brought grilled garlic bread to our table which we didn't order, but it showed up on the bill (minimum charge) and it was good. The staff was warm and welcoming...therefore when we found ourselves back on this side of Funchal we stopped in for another small afternoon meal (this time without the bread).

“great value for money and good food”
Reviewed 14 August 2011

We dined in Arco Velho two nights in succession.Excellent standard of food on both nights, very good value and friendly service. In a very c ompetitive area of the old city this restaurant stands out as one of the better ones.
