We have dined in the top reviewed restaurants on our recent trip to Madeira but stumbling here on our coastal walk was our highlight. Service & grub was brilliant, no rushing, great atmosphere and broad mix of people. The view is simply the best and you feel away from it all. Really surprised at how good the food was here... More

After a poor experience on a recent visit, we reluctantly agreed to accompany some friends. If anything, our second visit was worse than the first. The food was rather dry and stodgy, some of the rice was tasteless. The staff were officious in directing where we, and other people, could sit and the atmosphere was quite unfriendly. They seem to... More

For risotto lovers with a great variety of recipes and tastes. And the view is just wonderful for fans of sea waves.

Lovely spot perched above the sea. Menu features various types of rice cooked many different ways. Different and modern with a romantic feel. We were a group of 4, 2 of whom loved what they had and 2 who didn't. The beetroot risotto with goats cheese and the chicken and prawn curry were terrific. The duck dish less so. Service... More

Had dinner and lunch at this amazing restaurant on a trip to Funchal just after Christmas - great food and beautiful location with the sound of waves crashing and a beautiful view. Excellent service too.

Situated just above the Old Town this restaurant is slightly hidden away. You can tell it must be good by the lack of touts. The restaurant has unobstructed views of the sea. You can hear the waves crashing on the rocks below. I had a fish sandwich for lunch, very simple but perfectly cooked and seasoned. We ordered puddings off... More

We enjoyed an excellent meal with good house wine. Staff were very helpful and the location was beautiful and as we ate we could hear the waves crashing in the rocks below. You need to enjoy eating rice, but there are so many options it is great to try something new.

Two years ago, to the date, we dined at Riso and we're amazed by the risotto's, the wines and the view. Nostalgic as we were we went back this year. You know how they say, never go back, it spoils the memory. Well I'm super glad I went back. More risotto's on the menu, even more creative and tasty. Great... More

Very nice location but, unusually for Madeira, not a welcoming place. All rice-based dishes of course but not as tasty as we hoped. We have had far better risotto in other restaurants in Funchal. Service was very slow even though the restaurant was not busy. Food is unusual, but not in a good way, and comparatively expensive. Could not recommend

Thank brianandpatricia2015
