About the restaurant Dona Amélia

O restaurante Dona Amélia fica localizado na rua Imperatriz com o mesmo nome, no coração da zona hoteleira e turística com ótimas acessibilidades e é considerado um dos melhores restaurantes do Funchal, com especialização na cozinha mediterrânica e pratos regionais.

O seu interior muito cuidado, acolhedor e com grandes janelões a deixar entrar a luz e a permitir apreciar a paisagem envolvente, proporciona uma refeição tranquila, onde a atenção e rigor do serviço são outro dos apontamentos dignos de nota.

Com uma ementa variada e de qualidade, o Dona Amélia possui alguns pratos a destacar, como o Espadarte fumado com molho Sabayon, o Bife de atum com fettuccini, os Medalhões de peixe grelhado com molho de abacate, a Lagosta Cardinale, o Entrecôte grelhado com ervas aromáticas, o Filet mignon, o Lyonnaise de fígado de vitela, o Chateaubriand… enfim, o melhor será mesmo reservar a sua mesa e perder-se nestas iguarias. Por seu lado, a carta de vinhos é sofisticada e variada, não terá dificuldade em conseguir o acompanhamento perfeito para a sua refeição.

O restaurante Dona Amélia é ótimo para uma refeição em família ou um jantar a dois, e caso esteja hospedado nas proximidades, não deixe de o visitar.

Came back to this restaurant for a second visit this week. I usually try to vary my dining options whilst in Funchal but have made an exception with this restaurant as the food and service is absolutely faultless. Will definitely put this one on my shortlist for my next visit to Funchal.

Our first visit to this restaurant and will certainly be on our list for a return visit. The food was excellent and the staff were really friendly and helpful. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone looking for well cooked food and served in a good atmospheric restaurant.

My main criticism is that, for my main corse, I ordered veal (medium to well done) and my wife ordered steak (rare). I received steak rare, while my wife was served steak well-done. All in all, considering the fact that Dona Amelia is supposed to be ranked in the top ten of restaurants in Funchal, all I can say is the standards must be very low.

We had to wait a little too long for our main course, but there were 8 of us.. Only two had a starter.. So this maybe the reason.. And the delay.. However we had a very pleasant evening. Thank you

The food was excellent. We had duck pate and prawns for starters and scallops and grilled prawns as a main with coffee to finish and complimentary Portuguese tarts.
Only negative, it was a Monday and restaurant was very busy and they did not appear to have enough staff, so we had to wait to be seated and there were long waits between meals. Apart from that the staff were really good and friendly. Would recommend.

We return to Dona Amélia every year because the food and service is constantly of an excellent standard. The staff are very welcoming and we especially enjoy the cheif’s surprise treats. Last night we enjoyed a delicious appetiser and a freshly cooked Portuguese custard tart, both on the house! See you again next year
