We started our week here as it was over the road from the hotel and raved about it so much that we finished the holiday off here as well. As other reviews have stated, the portions are very large but no complaints from me on that score. When we next go back, I know where I'll be heading for a good eating experience.

On our first night in Funchal we went to the nearest restaurant and went back every other night as the food, service, friendliness, cleanliness, ambiance and prices were so good. Watch out for the ponchas digestif, it is strong. The house white is excellent.

We tried this restaurant on the first day of our week long holiday to Madeira. The food was flambéd in front of us and it was good to watch! We chose to have garlic bread too, Maderian style which was delicious. The waiters were really friendly and the food plentiful and tasty. We will return before the week is over and definitely if we return to funchal. Good value for what you get too as great portions. The restaurant is really close to the Pestana Promenade, Melia and Enotel Lido.

This is an excellent example of a Madeiran restaurant. Both meat and fish are to be recommended, especially the chef's special duck, and the mixed fish grill. Their fruit flambe is a desert to die for. Good, reasonably priced wine list. Excellent, friendly service. Superb value for the quality of food and wine. We ate there twice and will certainly go on our next visit to Madeira.

We stayed at the Eden Mar suite hotel across the road from this restaurant. We were enticed in with a 10% discount voucher and it was well worth it. The restaurant was spotlessly clean, well set out with space between the tables so you weren't sat on top of each other.

The food was excellent. I had the house speciality, fish with banana which was really good. My hubby had steak and again it was cooked to perfection. We found the staff to be very helpful and firendly and enjoyed it so much so that we went back again the next night.

Would definately recommend.
