The menu (available in many languages) was very good with lots of choice. The prices were also good and the food wonderful. The manager was very honest about what to order and what was a better value for money on that day. A short walk from the Cliff Bay. Would recommend.

We visited this restaurant on a recommendation and probably would not have found it otherwise. Situated just a short walk up the hill from the Eden Mar Hotel in Lido area of the Hotel District in Funchal, it is surrounded by several larger, more prominent tourist restaurants. Prices compare very favorably with them but this is a small stylish bistro with a light airy feel and a relaxed friendly atmosphere where the food is fresh, excellent quality and well presented. We ate quite early and were the only diners there when we arrived and got a friendly welcome and were able to discuss our selection from the menu with the owner before opting for the Catch of the Day - a selection of freshly caught fish at a very reasonable price. As we ate a number of other diners came in and all seemed to be regulars. A very pleasant evening.

We picked up the name of this restaurant from a review of the hotel we were staying at.
We found it a cut above other restaurants we tried in the area. The waiters were friendly and knowledgeable and the service was prompt.
The food was top notch, better prepared and better presented than elsewhere, with a sense of home cooking when compared with the large "food factory" restaurants which surround it. Or put another way - quality rather than quantity.
With hindsight we should have eaten here every night as all the other restaurants were a disappointment.

We went here on the basis of this restaurant's placing in the tripadvisor listings.

The food is very straightforward, some might say plain. For example the salad was just a few basic components without any dressing. The service was OK, but again nothing above that which one might be entitled to expect in such a place.

I was disappointed overall, probably because some of the reviews seem to me to be a little over the top for what is a simple place. Prices were very reasonable, but you can do better for the money eg. PVP-Pao Vinho e Petiscos which I also visited and have reviewed.
