Don't be fooled by the front room that faces the road. Walk through this and you enter a charming garden with a charming garden room beyond. We went here on a Sunday night and it was lovely and quiet. We had the grilled squid and the lamb chops. Both were excellent. The selection of half bottles of Portuguese wine was... More

This was an unexpected pleasure in a street full of restaurants. It is a deceptively large place, with seating on the street, indoors in the front part, in the garden or indoors at the back of the garden. The garden has various trees to sit under, one of which on closer inspection turns out to be a truly giant cactus!... More

Our hiking group (15 people) liked the place so much that we visited it three evenings in a row! It has a few tables outside, an inside part, but the highlight is the peaceful backyard garden. I very much liked tomato/ onion/ egg soup as well as espada fish with banana and with maracuja sauce. The tuna steak was slightly... More

What a discovery. Off the main street, through the indoor area and out to the back courtyard. Under the trees and with the lights on in the evening this was a very relaxing place to eat. Service was quick and not intrusive. Decent meals and desserts.

Option for outdoor or indoor dining. Most people are outdoors but subject to smoking so better indoors to avoid smoke. Decent meal for lunch. Ordered tuna steak with polenta which was ok but the steak was very dry and had 1/4 of the plate full of peas - a little too many for my liking. Also ordered lapas and they... More

I think maybe this place looks better in the evening with lighting etc. Not for us. They were not busy when we arrived and we waited nearly an hour for lunch. The food was ok but nothing special. What We think was the owner must have spent over 45 minutes crashing chairs and tables about in the room next to... More

Had to come back here as we were so impressed 2 years ago when we came. Very reasonable in central Funchal. Highly recommended.
