    Found this place off trip advisor and I can certainly say that it exceed all expectations. Staff were incredible and the food unbelievably amazing. I’ve never had such a tasty asparagus risotto in my life, left me wanting 2 more servings. The food presentation is pure art work. You have to try this place if you ever visit Funchal.

    The staff were very professional and very polite and it felt like a nice place to be inside. Food was great but a little expensive for how much you get in portion size. However you do get chef specials for free which was also very nice! Would definitely go back and service was top class

    We loved the food here. It's was our second visit and the food and service was excellent. The atmosphere is great too. Would highly recommend the fish soup and the ceviche. Top marks thanks for another lovely meal

    The food was quite disappointing the raviolis were undercooked and the octopus was chewy and just not cooked well with a purée that was overly sweet. The service was remarkably slow even though there were 2 servers and only 3 tables. Wouldn’t recommend.

    We walked past this restaurant in the day and thought the menu looked amazing, it did not disappoint and was one of the best meals we’ve ever had. The service was really good too, even bringing out different wine than we asked for because it went better with the food we had ordered!

    Picked up this restaurant on Trip Advisor and it thoroughly deserved its high rating. The food was excellent and presented beautifully. The service was first class. We will definitely return when we are in Madeira next year. Beware! The canopy may drop down so you need to be a good catcher!!????

    Excellent food and service. A very minor point, the passion fruit macron dessert was lovely but the macron a little too hard!

    Excellent food and very timely service. Only slight negative was that the bin lorry came to empty the bottle banks halfway through! Otherwise a top quality meal and evening

    Small menu but top quality food. They also offer a choice of wine flights. All good value and a lovely setting in a small courtyard. The waitress Sandra is a human dynamo! Charming efficient an absolute star.
