This is a restaurant we have visited many times and the food is always freshly prepared and tasty. Strongly recommend the limpets and the crepes.

International menu with service minded staff. Felt a bit too touristic for us. We had spinage tortellini which was good and shrimps king George that was interesting to try but way too expensive.

Was not the best meal we had in Funchal though that is judging it against a generally high standard. Service was a bit or miss though they got there in the end. There are many others to choose from in that area.

Many years since we have eaten here, it used to be a regular eatery when we were in Funchal on a Sunday. Now the restaurant is much bigger but still some of the same waiting staff, so it must be a happy place to work....More
