Came here for lunch. We had the concept menu which is amazing value at 42€. We had prawns and foie gras for starters and wellington & duck for mains. All were very good but the best was the chocolate fondant - best I had eaten. The complimentary wines were excellent. The service was very attentive and friendly. We sat outside... More

I was recommended by friends to visit this restaurant on my next visit to Madeira. We decided to go on our wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed. From our arrival until our departure everything was perfect, I have nothing negative to say. The food was delicious and well presented. We had a variety of wines and found them to be... More

First visited 3 years ago and had a fantastic time so we were keen to return on our holiday to Madeira this year. Once again we had a brilliant evening with wonderful food, my husband had the fois gras to start which he described as worth the price of the whole meal! Great service, friendly and helpful. The wine flows... More

The staff had gone to great lengths to create a festive and romantic atmosphere with red and white table settings and scattered rose petals. The food was excellent and beautifully cooked and presented. Wine had been chosen to complement each course. We were not hurried through each course and we felt the staff enjoyed the evening as much as we... More

I went with my husband and 2 older teenagers. The food was good but not amazing. I'd say good value compared to other restaurants in Funchal as you get wine, beer and soft drinks included for €42 per person for a 3 course meal but depends on how much you drink. The food was presented very well and was a... More

We were recommended to try this by a number of people. We had to book as it is very busy. We did the total dining experience which gave us our own choice of courses from the a la carte menu and a different wine with each course( never an empty glass!). Fantastic food and service a must visit place if... More
