We had an enjoyable meal here this visit. The dishes were well cooked, the staff were friendly and efficient. There continues to be issues with people objecting to being charged for bread and cheese they did not order, which is a shame as it feels uncomfortable. Although there is a statement about this at bottom of each page it is still not very clear

This restaurant is a family run bistro type. It is very friendly with good fresh home cooked food at very reasonable prices. Best to book it is always busy in the evenings.

I will describe it in list form:
Small venue
Cramped with just enough room to walk between the tables
Uncomfortable chairs
Unfriendly and non communicative staff
Bland food
Hidden charges on the bill

Very disappointed as some of the reviews on here were quite complimentary.
The flaming sausage was one...it was very unimpressive and cold...Had the canneloni for main which was dry and tasteless.
I know I should only comment on our food but whilst we we were there a table of 4 had a bad experience with cold grilled prawns...they had no apology and no discount offered off the bill...they were very disillusioned as once again this place was recommended to them.
It's a big shame as there are so many better restaurants in the area....avoid this one!

My wife and I have just had dinner here as it was not too far from our hotel and we did not want a walk into funchal town. As it is an Italian restaurant we both had pasta. The food took about 20 mins to arrive which we thought was a bit long, the place was quite full but a couple of tables who ordered after us were served before us. The food was tasty and portions were a good size. The service however was not with a smile, food was put on the table without a word and we had to ask for a couple of things more than once. To cap it all we were charged 1.25 for a couple of bits of cheese in addition to the 3.00 cover charge for bread, no mention was made that the cheese was an optional extra. It seems that if you go several times the staff get to know you and you might better service but we will be giving somewhere else tomorrow.
