“Best ever Steak on the Stone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Best ever Steak on the Stone. We had this restaurant recommended by a local and she was absolutely right. The steak was the best ever. Get an extra plate for your steak and cut into pieces and then cook as required. That way your steak is always cooked to your liking. There is a buffet for your vegetables and salads, etc. which was very good.
We went to the one at Estrada Monumental (west of funchal) and could highly recommend it.

“Amazing steak on a stone!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

Brilliant! Don't overlook this restaurant (there are two). It may be 'cafe style' but the food is fresh and wonderful. we ate there almost every day as the food at our hotel was bland. It is also inexpensive and serves very good quality wine and beer. A glass of wine is always very large, and one glass of the excellent red will get you quite tipsy!

“There are two of these restaurants...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

The other one is at the bottom of Camino do Amparo, at the junction with Estrada Monumental. We were rather disappointed. The Garlic mushrooms were barely warm and floating in something like cold tea. The Steak on the hot stone was very good, However it was the atmosphere which let the restaurant down. The lighting was so bright, it was like eating in an operating theatre and the smoke from the smokers sitting outside the restaurant was blowing inside - really not very nice.
