Nothing wrong with the food here. Fresh fish and shellfish and a good selection of wines.

But somehow the waiters makes you feel like a dumb tourist from the first minute. The service/show is way to intrusive and the prices are to high.

My best advice would be to go elsewhere.

All the restaurants are after your custom, but this is well worth visiting. Great atmosphere, lively friendly staff and great fish selection. Wine list very good with sensible prices for good wines. Visit the old town area in Funchal and pay this restaurant a visit, I'm sure you will return!

The food is very simple, just down to grilled fish, simple side dishes, good wine, served with a huge smile. The price is attractive and that lands the 4th star. Two visits mid-October, both memorable. If you prefer elaborate menus, a quiet meal, ample space and complex food, this is not your place. The clams and shrimps in garlic are a must. Good wine recommendations at affordable prices.

We passed by here and were persuaded in by the waitress who turned out to be a gem. Seating outside is a little cramped but atmospheric. You know what you're getting when you walk down this street!
Nothing on the menu really tempted my wife as a vege but they made a one off spaghetti dish that didn't touch the sides!
I had black scabbard fish just plain grilled. Fresh tasty veg on the side. Plain but lovely in a way fresh food well served is.
A half bottle of Green wine, fresh and young, complimented things nicely. A nice way to spend an hour or so.
