Juan Caldarado provided superb entertainment during our excellent meal at this small family run restaurant. Whenever we come to Madeira this is always a "must visit" for us and has never disappointed.

Authentic Madeira restaurant situated in the old town, very smartly decorated in a warm and comforting atmosphere. The menu is good with plenty of choice. the dining experience is only enhanced by the guitar playing of Juan Calderaru who is superb to listen to.

The Casa Portuguesa was established in the year 2000 by Anabela Nunes who continues to run the restaurant with her family. The restaurant is small and intimate, located in one of the back streets in Funchal's Old Town, traditionally decorated with hand painted blue and white tiles, tables covered in hand made Madeiran table cloths and lit with tiny wall lights giving it warmth, character and an atmosphere of dining in a real Portuguese family home. We have a free pick-up service from hotels or apartments if required.
