We went to this restaurant three times in a week as we absolutely loved the food! The restaurant itself was nicely decorated and clean, and the staff were really friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and will return when we next go back to Funchal.

Good service without fuss. Delicious food and lots of choice for vegetarians. Well worth the walk up from the city centre.
