We ate there two times during our stay in Funchal. Every time it was great. Me and my wife we ate local food: fish soup, fish stew, fish skewer, black scabbard fish with baby prawns sauce, fresh tuna pasta, caldeirada verde. everything was great, the waiter explained us about every dish, it was the best food experience in funchal. I highly recommended to everyone who want's to taste local cuisine. Good value too.

We stumbled across this restaurant in Old Funchal. The food was so good and reasonable that we visited it three times. The restaurant is not overlooked by other restaurant. The service was excellent

Have always had the most marvellous meals and service at this restaurant. Food is always cooked from fresh and the staff are always so friendly and informative. You're never rushed and we've always had magical evenings here. It's slightly tucked away behind a church and not that easy to find but don't give up and carry on walking and you'll come across it. Don't leave Madeira without visiting this restaurant

Great food. Amazing service. Friendly and welcoming staff. I recommend the skewered beef and fish soup. An absolute gem in the old town 10/10

Friendly service and good food at a fair price. We ate there on two occasions which speaks for itself.
