Perfect location - very nice service - food has starcook-level - casual and uncomplicated. Wonderful view over the harbour. Within last two-weeks-trip we have been there three times.

Don't expect traditionally-clad waiters. Do book, do enjoy it, we certainly did! We chose the fixed price Sensation Menu which at EUR 55 each we thought was good value with non-stop matched wines. Great to to go such a modern place in Funchal.

Nice place to relax while you have a drink and enjoy the sea view. Nothing else to add. Why am I required to add more and more? This is more than enough. Thanks.

This place is absolutely a hidden gem in the marina of Funchal. On the way to the terminal of the cruise ships, you find this restaurant with stunning views, very nice food and friendly service.

We're suckers for the original and unusual, so had to try the design centre. All in all, a very good selection of interesting dishes; a few hits, a few misses, just what you'd expect from a chef who's trying to push some boundaries (lichen hail...More
