    We knew we had to here again for dinner, after having lunch on our visit of summer last year. The food was even better this time round, if thats even possible. The fish and seafood is phenomenal, and clearly very very fresh. What makes it even more special is the flavours and combinations of ingredients they make here at Akua. We shared codfish tacos, a giant grilled prawn (really, more like the size of our lobsters back home), and snapper ceviche, before our mains of seared tuna with clam risotto and seafood fideua. This here is something truly special. If you're in Funchal, this is a must visit.

    Interesting restaurant with a limited and very different menu. Dishes we had were cooked perfectly and nicely presented, although a couple of ingredients were not to our taste. However, it is very popular and always busy so highly recommended for seafood lovers. Booking probably essential.

    The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was lovely and I’m not a lover of sea food. If you can get a seat at the food bar all the better, watching the food being prepared.

    As the #1 rated restaurant in Funchal we expected to be wowed. We were underwhelmed. The fish dishes just okay. One in our party had the beef loin and really liked it. But since seafood is what Akua is known for we weren’t impressed. We prefer the sister restaurant Kampo.

    Recommended by friends from home who were here two weeks ago and love their food we knew we were in for a treat. An innovative and interesting menu. I loved the scabbard fish in squid ink tempura batter with banana and passion fruit purée. Sounds bizarre but it’s delicious.

    Be prepared to sit outside even if you have a reservation, so wetherproof gear is essential. Staff forgot the water, had to ask for it. Food was ok but not special. Overgrated I think.
