We ate here 1 night after passing on several occaisions taking note that the tables were usually full. The tables are placed outside in a quiet street under large unbrellas and are nicely presented. Restaurant Murcas has a varied menu and the food is freshly prepared to a high standard and at very reasonable prices, the tomato and onion soup being one of the best soups I've ever had and the steaks very tender.
Although described on here as a snack bar, this is a resraurant and was equal to some of the better establishments in Funchal. We would recommend to anyone and you don't need deep pockets to eat like a king!

This little restaurant in the middle of Funchal is an absolute delight , We ate out quite a few times during our stay in Madeira and this little place was better than some of the more expensive places we ate at.
The tables are placed outside and on a warm night it is a lovely setting to eat your meal with friendly waitresses and very good value for money .Should we return to Funchal we would head for here without hesitation Top Marks !!

There are tables outside in the street. No cars, no noise, about 25 places. Murças offers a wide choice of meals: fish, meat, pasta, vegetarian food and some specialities of Madeira. I've liked very much the tuna steak with chips and salad. Enjoy the unique atmosphere and the likable waitresses: Thank you so much for many wonderful hours in your restaurant!
Tip for all customers: Please, don’t forget to test Poncha!

Classed as a snack bar but the food was as good as any restaurant we ate in. I think we ate there 10 out of 14 nights because of the nice and peaceful location and the quality of the food. The staff were always welcoming and helpful. Don't be put off by the words "snack bar". the food is excellent.

A very nice small restaurant located in the center of Funchal just behind the Cathedral.
They say they are snack bar and restaurant, but the food is exactly as in a restaurant.
Good choice of local plates, fish and meat fresh.
Prices good.
I'd recommend the Picadhos typical plate made with stuffed pieces of beef.
