Not to miss spot to view the see, try the waves swimming and sip your ponchas while relaxing, reminded me of the Amalfi coast in Italy... very friendly personnel, great ponchas, try the fisherman one. Sit under umbrella or just in front of the buzzy bar, like a local. Combine with a fortress visit nearby. Enjoy the sun and Madeira!

Great little place just out of the old town up on the hill. Great views out to sea. Peaceful large pavement area to relax. Wine/beer cocktails and basic food. Very relaxing for an aperitif or afternoon coffee/snack. The lovely old street lighting and church next door make this feel like very atmospheric.

When we on holiday inFunchal recently, we came across a bar by the seafront called the Barreirinha.We loved everything about it- the location, the friendly, relaxed waiters,the agreeably chilled, studenty atmosphere, and the wonderful burgers.The prices,too, were very reasonable, with no annoying hidden extras. Having discovered the Barreirinha, we returned to it regularly during the rest of our holiday,and it... More

We came across this whilst wandering around Funchal and thought we would give it a go. Great position overlooking the sea, really good value for food and drinks. Sangria 2.50 per glass, mojito 4 euros, we decided to eat as so relaxed sitting there so had steak sandwiches with fries really delicious for 5 euros. It gets busy and seems... More

A genuine find with great views and great coffee. A 35 minute walk from Pestana Carlton hotel (add 5 for Reids or deduct 5 for Savoy) along the seafront past the Sao Tiago Fort. Great prices and service. Highly recommended.

One of my favourite locations in Funchal, but as it goes with all good places, is becoming more and more popular "unfortunately". Great for morning coffee but also for an evening cocktails.

Second visit to this bar, previously introduced by a Madeiran friend. Lunchtime , sunny and so was very busy. Drinks order taken quickly; tried to confuse waiter with some pigeon Portuguese. No need they all spoke excellent English. Drinks took a short while to come then we ordered the bolo steak with garlic butter. The technology of smart phone ordering... More
