    This restaurant, in Funchal Old Town has a lovely terrace overlooking the water. The meal was well cooked and very tasty but would have benefitted from some potatoes and a few more vegetables! As always, the service at Cidade Velha is friendly and efficient.

    What a lovely restaurant. Attentive, friendly staff who met our every need without being intrusive. Fabulously tasty food, beautifully presented and with elegant touches - way and beyond what we had in all the other restaurants during our 5 day stay in Funchal. And an excellent wine recommendation - at a great price. If the saxophonist could just have stayed to play for a little while longer it would have been utterly perfect! We recommend this Cicade Velho as THE restaurant to visit in Funchal.

    Lovely little restaurant the staff are efficient, smart & accommodating especially pandering to my allergies & whims. The food is very good - not too many choices so everything is fresh. Well worth a visit afternoon or evening the atmosphere is good

    Wonderful, atmospheric restaurant slightly off the beaten track but next to the beautiful fort. Delicious, authentic Madeiran cuisine served by passionate, thoughtful staff. Highly recommended

    This was a new year meal costing 120 euros. It consisted of several courses all of which were inadequate in amount. The food was tasteless, homogenised, pretentious. It was not the gourmet experience that it was pretending to be. Very disappointed.

    I'm an average size man on 177 cm and 75 kg. I didn't get enough food. Especially when you think about that we gave 120 € per person. I was still hungry when we left and when asking for more food the waiter told us they were out of all food. Really? I honestly think we were just unlucky with the day and the waiter, but they still deserve critics for their product.
