Ordered the beef tenderloin with foie gras. It was tasty but not the best I've ever had. If you like banana, order the banana dessert which is quite nice.

We returned to Les Faunes after assurances by the manager that they would make our evening wonderful after our previous visit. We were not disappointed, the service, food and atmosphere wer amazing. Nothing was too much trouble and we had a great time. Nelson the restaurant manager is a real gentleman, and showed so much care an attention to us and our daughters. We will definitely return. Expensive - yes- worth it - definitely.

We visited Les Faunes on the last night of our holiday and it was well worth the expense! We enjoyed a pre-dinner drink in the bar and then were taken through to the restaurant with its amazing views over the bay of Funchal. The restaurant epitomises old-fashioned comfort and service and you are made to feel like a valued guest. The food was sublime and the service was well- timed, impeccable but friendly. A fitting end to a very enjoyable holiday.

This was our forth visit to "Les Faunes" at Reids Palace. We were given a lovely window seat overlooking the harbour. The meal was lovely, but the service not as sharp as we had previously experienced. In the past, they topped your wine before you even needed it and were so great at anticipating your needs. This time, we felt hassled and rushed to choose from the menu, where in the past it was more relaxed - we were the first diners in there!! The prices are high, but you don't mind as the quality and service are normally so good. The children's menu is good value and our daughters felt like princesses being there and eating such nice food. We didn't really want a starter and said so to the waiter - he persuaded us to order some melon, which then appeared on the bill as 36 euros for 2 plates of melon!! We felt embarrassed to query it, but the waiter was good about it and said it shou;d only be 9 euros each - which is still a lot - but this is Reids - so the bill came back - another 18 euros higher than before!! It was a mistake and they then took the cost off for all of the melon, but it's poor form and very embarrassing. The food was delicious and the experience is worth every penny - but I think we had been spoilt the previous times.
