We dined here several times during our holiday and enjoyed every meal. I enjoyed the steaks with different sauces on offer and my wife thought the lemon sole was excellent.
The restaurant could do with a better selection of wines by the glass.
Pleasant serving staff and very good cooks who work in a surprisingly small kitchen.

Thank uptheshots

This small restaurant on a little quiet back street opposite the Pestana Carlton hotel is a total revelation a ' Gem in Madeiras crown' . My husband and I had the most wonderful meal here . The staff are friendly and so helpful and deciding what to eat from their varied menu was so difficult. The steak Rossini was cooked to perfection and we have vowed to go back and experience their wonderful fish range while still on the island.

Always pleased with food here, high quality food and wine..

We chanced upon this restaurant on our first night in Funchal and went back each night after. When you find something this good, why look anywhere else. Three courses and a bottle of wine for 85 euros was very reasonable. Portions were not huge, but quite sufficient and beautifully presented. Staff were very friendly and spoke enough English to understand us. Looking forward to going back next time

Just around the corner from my hotel I found this little gem of a restaurant. Superb service and excellent food freshly prepared.
