    So pleased we found this stunning restaurant. Tables were laid beautifully outside on the cobbled street , staff were all so welcoming . We arrived at 7.30 but within 1 hour every table was taken . Great menu and extra specials,, we chose the tuna tartare which was outstanding and made in front of us . The ginger risotto with red snapper was delicious as was the shrimps with Moçambique curry . Loved it so much we have booked another night .

    What can I say that I haven’t said after each visit to La ao Fundo! This restaurant, in Funchal Old Town, is totally different from the tourist restaurants in Madeira. The food is wonderfully cooked with spices and flavours from Mozambique! The wine is reasonably priced and the service, exceptional and friendly! It is always busy at La ao Fundo so it’s wise to book a table!

    Awesome food, charming setting in a small historic street, clearly popular and for good reason - a real taste of Madeira, with a bit of a modern take on the best traditional local cuisine. Certainly the nicest meal I had on holiday here, by a long way.

    One of our best meals in Madeira. The attention to detail, the extras just added that extra touch to make the experience and food amazing. Prices were fabulous too. Food was tasty and delicious. The service and atmosphere impeccable. Another MUST while in Funchal.

    The Ginger and saffron risotto was one of the best risottos we had in years, the mozambique style curry with giaaaaant shrimp was incredible and the chef’s selected amouse bouche was so amazing we could not stress enough they should have it as a dish. We met Lá ao Fundo in our 2nd night in Funchal and we knew we had to go again before returning home. So we drove 40min each way in our last night to taste their such flavors for one last time. 5 stars.

    Everything was right - from the setting to the attentive service to the imaginative and well cooked food. The house wines were good too. We ate there twice. We walked past a number of restaurants with staff trying to tempt people to dine - something we find annoying. No need for this at Lá ao Fundo. We were impressed by the waiters and also by the chef who same to speak to diners.

    Your review grades don’t work. But the restaurant was brilliant, and the staff were so attentive, unlike your star rating selection. Please try harder.

    Set away from the bottom of the cable car in Funchal, you have to walk past several other restaurants before you come to this place but it is worth it. The food and the service were excellent. We couldn't fault a thing. The menu is a spin on the usual sea food and local dishes and this is due to the family having connections to Mozambique and Goa. Highly recommended.
