Staff were very friendly, food was good and we enjoyed looking at the great view. Parking was ok in the street, but Google Maps took us on a scary drive to get to the restaurant!

Came here for my boyfriend's birthday and firstly we was seated in an amazing seat looking over the best views by a lovely man who couldnt be more helpful and friendly. Then he showed us to the roof terrace where we was greeted by the owner who was very friendly and made us feel welcome. We then went back down for dinner which was incredible. Both me and my partner really enjoyed it. If you want a friendly envoriment and to eat amazing food with the best views you can ask for then this is the place to go. Highly recommended.

Amazing view. There was only waiter on shift and I think he struggled to handle 5 tables by himself - also because he wasnt writing things down - he got our order wrong a few times.. But it was still a lovely evening. Highly recommend the orange cake & chocolate mousse with lime & cookie topping!

Service was great but everything else was somewhat a let down. Food was too dry for our tastes. The view was amazing, probably what you really come here for. We were the only ones in the restaurant so the mood was peculiar.

Terrific meal here last night. Service was solicitous and very prompt. My wife had the tuna and I had the Tbone veal steak. Both were among the best meals we had during our stay in Madeira. The views from the dining room of the city of Funchal and the sunset were spectacular. I would not miss this place during a Madeira vacation.

Amazing views and food!!! Hidden up in the hills but worth the trip for an out of town relaxed meal!!!
But do take a taxi or bus, but trust the views and food are worth it!

This restaurant is located up in the mountains near Funchal which gives excellent view over the city from the dining table.
We tried the Mirandesa Veal which is a special portugezan cattle, grass-fed pasture raised which both of us enjoyed. You could really taste the quality of the meat.
The staff and service were on point. Even the owner came by the restaurant which happened to be part Swedish and we ended up having a conversation with him that was meaningful and profound. The owner cares about his staff and the food that they put on their plate which added to the experience.
Can recommend this place for anyone looking for quality meat and views.

Best Regards, Simon and Jessica

The views are spectacular and the service good so we were very disappointed to find the food was terrible. The cod was very overcooked . The chips had a strange taste . The garlic bread was delicious . Badly sourced, badly cooked. I have never given any restaurant a bad review before .

I booked Planka because of the view but the food was as good or even better than the view experience over Funchal.
The service was great, from beginning to end we were very well looked after.

Definitely returning in the future

Superb view of Funchal and the harbour. Excellent food - veal steak cooked to perfection and the fish soup starter was well executed.
