Located in one of the nice parts of the city. The restaurant is offering a wide range of dishes. Nothing is bad but it's not more than something to eat.

We hadn't realised that lots of Funchal restaurants close on January 1st, so were pleased when we eventually found this one open. Funchal waiters usually have a good grasp of English, but we suspect that the older man who served us probably did not. My husband ordered & received chicken piri piri, a vast portion. I ordered espada ( the... More

We had a realy bad experience here. The food was of a really low standard. The espetada - beef skewers- were like chewing gum and were abandoned. The roast chicken was mostly bones and I would say that it was thighs. The owner saw how much was left and asked if did not enjoy it ... we said no and... More

When we visited this restaurant it was very quiet. Others were busier which was a shame because it was lovely. Food was delicious. We were cold so ordered soup. I had traditional tomato soup - it was excellent. Pork main course was also very good. we did not have pudding. This appeared to be a family run restaurant. Food was... More

The hosts knew their food: it's actually unusual for folks to know whether their chips were gluten free, which these guys did (it was not). There was a family atmosphere. We both ordered piri piri chicken. The meal itself was flavoursome and quantities were great! However, Nando lovers should note that this place's piri piri chicken is not flame grilled... More

Quiet night as Portugal were playing football. We ate tuna steak covered with sauce, and I had lamb chops, both came with chips and salad. Portions were generous, and well cooked and fresh. The carafe of house red was great value for 8 euros. The 'speciality' of cabbage was interesting, and something we could eat due to being full. A... More

We chose this restaurant because of the specials listed inside the window and it was crowded...always a good sign! The older male server was very nice, gracious and hospitable. The woman server, not so much. She made us feel like we were putting her out or bothering her! No a/c here! Nice selection of wine but most sold only by... More

Nice place, friendly welcoming but was let down after ordering. Starter was good as was my wife's meal however, my prefer was wrong as I'd ordered a mixed fish spit grill but got a grill of chicken and ham! We were given free samples of raw black pudding (local delicacy) and sweet fried potato which was a nice touch but... More

This restaurant had a trip advisor sign and we tried it out. There was a lot of local food on the menu and we decided to try espetada which is beef cooked on a skewer in the local style ... the hosts were very friendly and let us try the local sausage that looked like black pudding ... our main...
