“Food is Crime Against Humanity”
Reviewed 2 May 2011

Service was nice, but food was absolutely disgusting. Being 42 years old and seen some world - and restaurants, I honestly - and being totally serious - can't understand, why this restaurant can succeed in old town area of Funchal, if the quality of the food we ate is a standard. Me and my friends, we tasted every dish we ordered, couldn't eat any - and after this disaster decided to have another try. it saved the evening. we continued 200 meters west along the alley and found a popular restaurant with nice, friendly and swift service & excellent food.

“A little variable but worth a visit”
Reviewed 17 December 2008

We went there twice - better the first time - the second time we ended up with two waiters neither who could decide who was responsible for serving us and things appeared that hadn't been ordered, the bill was wrong etc.

Good fish soup, outstanding sea bass but the Madeiran tuna was rather white wine vinegary - reasonable salad and potato accompaniment and OK wine and beer.

Worth one visit but not two! Price of food was very competitive.
