Reids has a famous history and has a high well deserved reputation for quality. We visited for cocktails and these were served in the bar with a splendid view of Funchal as the sun set and as a piano played soft music in the background. The drinks were accompanied by canapes and some dishes of nuts and crisps. We could... More

This is a good place to go for an afternoon drink and spend some time relaxing and admiring the views. The service is impeccable, the drinks are priced based on the standard of the hotel so there is no surprise there. Very good standards...

We went to Reid's hotel to have a beer and look at Winston Churchill artefacts. We were made most welcome and allowed to look round at pictures etc. The beer was service on the verandah that Churchill sat ... very special. The service was excellent and were not chased off

Sip your martini on the balcony where Churchill took his evening cocktail. Stunning harbour view and attentive service

My friend and I had dropped in for cocktails and sat out on the terrace overlooking the sea. It was beautiful. The staff are so very friendly and stopped to chat which was lovely considering we were mere visitors! The cocktails were delish although the frozen daiquiri wasn't frozen it was runny with some ice on top and should have... More

While staying at Reid's we had pre-dinner drinks here, lovely view down to the harbour and very attentive and efficient staff, I recommend the champagne cocktail while my husband would score the daiquiris highly!

Now this is a bar. The ambience is perfect and the drinks and service sure better. Treat yourself and pop in for a cocktail or three you won't regret it.

Here you can try a wonderful variety of cocktail, with an amazing view! I preferred non-álcool cocktails. Beautiful cocktail decorations.
