    This is such a lovely restaurant, staff can't do enough for you. We went with the Eur 40 per person menu which includes everything, wines, starter, main etc. One of the men in our party prefer to drink beer and they had it on tap, we asked if it would be a problem for us to buy bottled beer instead, they had no issues with this and instead sent someone off to buy it and we still got charged the same. Food is absolutely stunning. I had the beef tartare, to die for and the fish stew, I asked if they could swap the potatoes for rice again no problem and it was delicious. It was so good that we had been once before, myself and my partner, and as we had bumped into another couple we knew from back home we suggested going back, the other couple especially the gentleman said it was the best meal he had had in the 2 weeks of being in Madeira, I have to agree.

    Starting from a warm welcome you can tell you are in a special place. The food is on par with the best we've ever tasted. The service is attentive, quiet and unobtrusive. The waiters look immaculately turned out and are friendly and humorous. They have an innovative way of providing the wine. They choose. This way my wife was served dry white with her fish whilst I enjoyed a fruity red with lamb. The glasses were special, they never emptied. The bill was very reasonable. We enjoyed the whole evening so much we booked again for our last night on this lovely island.

    Concept menu gives you a free choice of a 'la carte offerings plus quite free flowing wine. Beef tartar and lamb leg were very good. Music performance approached concert level. Especially the violinist was a virtuoso.

    Well we left the best to last. Lovely food in a friendly atmosphere. Staff were friendly and attentive. My steak was cooked perfectly and was delicious. My wife had the lamb which was equally praised. Sunday was a music night which was very entertaining with violin and guitar. A highlight of this visit to Madeira. Look forward to visiting Cris’s place again next year.

    Wonderful attentive service. The €40 menu is an absolute bargain with the wine constantly flowing. Food is delicious and fair size portions, beautifully presented. Tonight there was live music and a fabulous atmosphere

    It was really nice. The atmosphere and the live music was great. The only positive feedback I can give is that after the appetizer the main course came a bit fast. But the overall experience was really good. Nice staff. Beautifull food. Wonderfull ambiance

    We chose this restaurant due to all the excellent reviews but were sorely dissapointed. The food was mediocre with the same puree coming out with the starters and main courses and the fish did not seem fresh. Beautifuly presented and excellent service but sadly bland.

    This was a favourite of ours 3 years ago and it was lovely to return. The staff are lovely, well presented and professional. The food was amazing, the wine delicious and a special mention to the chocolate fondant. An outstanding dessert, so glad we just about had room. It’s inclusive priced menu may be a Euro or two more than other restaurants in Funchal, but it is worth it. Look forward to next time.

    Excellent as usual. This was our 5th visit over the years. Chris’s Place never disappoints. The food was presented in a very attractive way and was good value for 40 euros. You had a large choice of starters, mains and desserts, paired with as much wine as you could drink. It included an appetiser and sorbet and coffee afterwards. The entertainment by a guitarist and violinist was excellent on a Sunday evening which was the last day of our holiday in Madeira. We will most definitely be back again in the future.????????

    We are never disappointed when we visit this restaurant ! From the moment we walk in to the time we leave we are made to feel like valued customers The Ambience is calm and and always relaxing Staff are attentive but never intrusive . Food up to its normal standard both in its presentation and quality . We were pleased to be able to visit and continue to support the restaurant after the difficult time they had in lockdown but nothing of it’s charm has been lost The set menu continues to offer exceptional value and highly recommended Look forward to returning here on our next Madeira visit !

    Food and wine was brilliant. Suggest you go for €40 a head meal and wine - great value with generous portions of wine. Only slight downside - they tried to sell you a glass of bubbly before you sat down at your table

    Absolute gem of a restaurant. Amazing food, great service. Being honest, found by accident but very glad we went. Fully booked on the Saturday and reserved and went on our last night. Probably one of the best meals I’ve had in a restaurant. Highly recommended

    We had a wonderful evening, I made a mistake didn’t realise Cris had 2 restaurants and we went to the wrong one having a reservation in the other one.but we had no problem Cris organised a car for us and gave us a glass of bubbles while we waited and we were driven to his other place. When we arrived to another glass of bubbles and we sat on the terrace the service was impeccable as was the food beautifully presented and very enjoyable the wine was included and the coffee, and the whole experience was wonderful, will definitely go back and will also try his other restaurant too. Very professional Restauranteur.
