“Fabulous!!”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

The ambiance of this restaurant outside overlooking the Atlantic is stunning in itself, add to the fact that the service is fantastic and the food is superb and you have yourself a really lovely dining experience. OK the prices are a more expensive than many restaurants in Funchal but take my word for it, for a special occasion you will struggle to better this restaurant. But make sure you book a table outside overlooking the sea............enjoy !!

“World class”
Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

We began our holiday dining here on our first evening in Madeira at the Villa Cipriani and it was simply fantastic. In fact it was so good we dined here on another two occasions. Tonight was our last evening in Madeira & we chose the Villa Cipriani & once again we were not disappointed. The service from the Maître d - Tony and his impeccable team really is first class, they are totally unobtrusive and complete professionals. On each occasion we have had the privilege to be attended to by Renato & Vasco who are both superb in their skills in understanding the food menu & the wine list. Of course all of the staff members are trained to exacting standards and that is what sets this restaurant apart from the rest. Above all the ambience of this restaurant is an experience in itself. The setting is exquisite and if you are fortunate enough to secure an ocean view then please just consider this as a gift as it is truly magical. The food is without doubt superb and each dish is executed in the most artistic and appetising way. In fact each serving is presented as a vision to savour with the eyes & mind before the tastebuds even sample the kaleidoscope of flavours on the plate.

The wine list is excellent & there is a grand variety that will appease the most discerning palate and once again the expertise of the sommelier is there at hand to advise.

To be perfectly honest this is a restaurant that ranks as one the best I have ever come across. The phrase 'fine dining' is well deserved but really does not do it justice because this restaurant is all about a cherished experience, the company, food, wine, quality of service & music from the ocean alone makes memories that will stay with me forever.

“Returned again Simply Fantastic”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We visited last year and came back again as a 50th Birthday treat from my wife.
Again the service simply great. We both had wonderful starters of prawns in lobster sauce with light pasta and the fish soup with fish ravioli. For the main we had the beef fillet with vegetables . Tasted amazing. For afters the Taramsai simply light and refreshing followed by Italian cheese board selection to share. The setting over the Cliff edge with wonderful views over sun set with the light of the candles.
Once again lovely romantic evening and we will be returning again next year. ( A habit our Polish friends introduced us too!)

“Views, Luxury and Great Food”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

This is a great Italian Restaurant with the service you expect being linked to Reids Palace. The staff were so attentive without feeling too much. My wife is a vegetarian and they made a special meal of her liking and taste.
They have a great cellar and menu choice. There are fantastic views with a great setting. Recommend for a nice romantic meal.
