We ate here 1 lunchtime and had omelette,, this came with chips and salad. The omelettes are very tasty, and we enjoyed our meal. We also ate here 1 evening, the meals were great. The restaurant is located in the old town, and is in a good location. Look forward to coming back, the next time we are in Funchal.

Loved this place - after trying a few other restaurants, I wish I've eaten here more often. The chef is fantastic, and I was particularly impressed by the octopus. Respect :)

First impressions leave a lasting impact, and restaurant host, Loes, was the greatest asset that the Marisqueira Tropicana can have! Loes cheerfully greeted us and welcomed us to the restaurant with great friendship and wonderful, colorful stories of his beloved Funchal. What a delightful dining experience thanks to Loes! We dined here initially upon recommendations from numerous people, and the... More

We dined at Marisqueira Tropicana both nights we were in Madeira. We went back the second night because we loved it so much. Loes (the maitre-d) and the staff were incredibly friendly and made us feel at home during our stay. The restaurant is well-situated near the waterfront. The food was delicious, and they also gave us a complimentary glass... More

It really depends on whose shift you go there. We were there 3 times during our stay in Funchal - first wast good, second so-so and third awful. First two times there was a bit older waiter (grey hair, in glasses) in charge, last time someone younger. We chose the place for the mentioned waiter/host, who was inviting guests in... More

We ate here twice during our week's holiday. Very friendly and attentive staff. Before ordering we were given a madeira wine to start us off. We didn't have starters because we saw the size of the main courses. The beef dishes were cooked to perfection and the chicken dishes were spot on as well. The staff were interested in our... More

We stopped at this restaurant to sample Portuguese Madeira food during our cruise stop in Madeira, Portugal. What a mistake. Our food took forever to arrive. When it did arrive it was so overcooked it was inedible. Even the waiter commented how bad it was. Since we couldn't wait any longer I tried to eat it. Just gave up finally.... More
