We were out for dinner that evening and sought shelter from the rain. The restaurant wasn't too busy (probably because of the weather) and because of this we sat under cover with a great view of the sea below. What a great place to sit and watch the world go by under different circumstances. We chose a sandwich and shared... More

Situated on the seaside walkway below the Enotel Hotel in Sao Martino this is a great place to go if you are hungry and /or working to a budget. Service is crisp, friendly and fast. Portions are 'over-size' - a regular Pizza will deal with most man sized appetites. Good selection of standard starters such as Bruschetta and Garlic Bread... More

Situated underneath the Enotel, overlooking the bay with lovely views, this Italian restaurant pleasantly surprised us. The service was quick and efficient, a nice touch being the complementary poncha on arrival. Pizzas were very good too. Warning: the normal size is more than enough. Would go back.

This restaurant is popular with tourists and locals – deservedly so. We shared Tagliatelli Mediterraneo and Pizza Paparazzi, both of which were excellent. Pizzas are available in Small, Medium and Large sizes – for most people Medium will be big enough. We also had Chocolate Mousse, which was also very good. Beer was ok but not great. We would return... More

We always go here a couple times each year. Although this is a pizzeria by reputation, I would have to stay their Picadinho is one of the best on the island. The portions are huge, we asked for 2 large meals and rather than just take the extra money the waiter actually advised us to go regular or share a... More

Very busy place, with very efficient staff. Great pizzas, only tackle the large pizza if you are starving or going to share. The normal size is big enough! Great coffee too all at a reasonable price . Highly recommend.

I had an omelette and chips, my partner a margarita pizza. Both were tasty and fresh, with good portion sizes. Service was friendly and the restaurant had a nice atmosphere. Given the location and view this place is great value.

This is beyond doubt the best pizza/lasagne restaurant I have ever eaten in. An informal setting overlooking the sea with lovely views and NO passing traffic noise, just the sound of the waves crashing into the rocks. Used by the locals, the food and service is excellent. Very friendly and attentive staff . The meals are very competitively priced and... More

One of our favourite restaurants in Funchal. Good position overlooking the sea, eat inside or out. Informal but comfortable. Fabulous range of pizzas but the full variety of fish and meat dishes as well. Exceptionally good value. Great service. Delicious desserts. Recommend.

We love it here, sitting outside overlooking the sea & they have the best garlic bread in town....add to that excellent pizzas & the tot of poncha & you have a small local place where you can eat reasonably with a lovely view.....well worth a visit, particularly at lunchtime.

Located in a tourist area with very nice gardens and parks around, has a fantastic view of the ocean. Their outdoor seating is quite pleasant. Turning the best part, the pizzas are the best on the island, plus pizzas have pasta, regional dishes of fish and meat as the "espetada regional". The service is fast and friendly employees always ready to do whatever it takes, even to clarify facts about the island.
