Have never eaten at the restaurant - we go later for drinks and to hear the singing. Be prepared to share tables and enter into the spirit of the place. Great to see the family working and singing together. You will leave smiling!

Whilst on holiday this summer 2012 we went to this restaurant twice. Had a really good meal with fantastic local Portuguese singing. Well worth a visit and the staff are so friendly. Very good atmosphere.

We were visiting the downtown of Funchal and I consider we were lucky to find this unique restaurant. It is operated by a family that is really living singing Fado while serving the dishes. A special note for Pedro, the mandolin guy ;)

We highly recommend the restaurant for at least one dinner!

We stumbled across this little family run place while wandering through the old town and were intrigued by its authenticity so decided to have dinner. What an experience! The food is not cheap (although that is typical for Funchal) and it was very tasty, especially the passion fruit pudding.
What makes this place so special however is the service, ambience and entertainment that the family provide - they all sing or play guitar and take it in turns to perform while you eat in the candlelit room.
Special mention should go to Silvia, possibly the nicest and friendliest waitress on the island and by the time we left we felt like old friends.
A lovely evening out, great for those wanting something a bit different.
