An honest restaurant serving well cooked simple food that has built up a loyal clientele. In warm weather has a nice outside terrace and a cozy bar. The menu includes snacks and omelettes too at lunchtime and a formal restaurant. Waiters are friendly and knowledgable. Not for gourmet food but good none the less.

This restaurant was next door to our hotel, looked very nice, and recommended by previous reviews. We were not disappointed. Lovely atmosphere in the upstairs "conservatory" and very good meal and service. We did not book and got in ok but it was very busy.

This is a small restaurant, but the food and service are excellent. We enjoyed a variety of entrees and they were all tasty.

We had a lovely evening here with friendly attentive service and great food. It's a popular place to eat so may be advisable to book in advance. Every table had people eating, but rather than feeling cramped, there was a lovely cosy ambience. We loved it and will return next time we're in Funchal. Recommend the saddle of lamb for... More

Too attentive staff, and an uninspiring menu. No views and it turned out a rather ordinary meal for quite a high price.

We were happily surprised at the variety of the menu and the tests and tastes proved to be successful: I really liked my lobster and avocado salad and my mango gratin. Not to forget the service friendliness and efficiency.

This is a fine, classy restaurant oozing old world charm, with proper traditionally trained waiters and excellent food. Very close proximity to the Pestana Casino Park hotel, so one of the top places to visit if staying in the nearby area. Try and get a table in the glass-fronted orangerie and sample such delights as swordfish and octopus carpaccio, foie... More

Close to hotel, visited on off chance. Ordered Chateaubriand and wasn't disappointed - the accompanying fried potato and veg (sliced green beans only - not the expected artichoke or at least asparagus) being a tad basic. Service was good, House Red fine, atmosphere pleasant, prices reasonable. Would visit again

Thank Bob M
