Stunning food, good service and freely flowing wine. A great concept. This was our favourite restaurant in Funchal. All dishes were beautifully arranged and tasted great.

We had a very nice time at Cris’s Downtown. The food and service is great. The three course set menu with plenty of wine at €37,50 is great value. I recommend it for adults. No childrens menu.More
