4 of us dropped by in he afternoon and shared two of the driest, unappetising cheese and ham toasties we have ever paid for. Service was OK and we sat outside under the canopies. This place was recommended to me for evening meals but we struck it of our 'to do' list after this offering. Dining area looked lovely so... More

My husband and I went for lunch and then booked for an evening meal. The setting is wonderful, overlooking the sea, and we found the staff very helpful. Lunch was fine but the evening meal was fabulous. Special mention for the chicken stuffed with spinach and a couscous accompaniment. Oh and I couldn't resist a dessert of black rice, mango... More

Most restaurants in Funchal have similar menus. This promised to be an outstanding exception and an unusual dining experience. The imaginative menu is based on rice, with variations in the type of rice used and the accompanying fish, meat or veg. The ambience is modern and bright with a sail-like ceiling above the restaurant and a terrace that juts out... More

Service was a bit lacking, but everything else was divine. The view and chicken paté were icing on the cake.

There are many good restaurants in Funchal and here with a very good location and view over the sea, the menu is on varieties of Risotto. Everyone said their meal was good. I enjoyed the local fish and banana risotto. We had some excellent Portufuse white wine.

We saw this restaurant on a walk around the old town during the day and decided it was a bit away from the touristic restaurants and worth a try. Unfortunately the food was very ordinary and tasteless. I had the cauliflower soup for entreé and it tasted like barely flavoured water. One of the worst soups I've ever had. The... More

Walked up here for lunch, and had a table at the edge with views down over the sea. We found the service was acceptable, and the food was also very good. Not expensive as a standalone, but more expensive than eating in the main body of the Old Town where competition is prevalent. It's woth a visit for the view... More
