    Extremely clever cooking with sublime flavours and textures. The shellfish soup was the best one I have ever tasted and the crisp black scabbard fish with lime risotto, absolutely fantastic.
    It is great service, great food and a price that will not break the bank. Give it a try at least once on your trip to Madeira.

    Ate at this bistro and the food was really excellent. My fish was cooked to perfection and the duck was delicious. My son thought that the chocolate fondant desert was one of the best in funchal. Just to make life even better, I enjoyed their no smoking policy which made the experience even more enjoyable as I could taste and smell my food so much better. Thank you for such a lovely evening.

    Brilliant front of house made you feel special. Service and attentiveness first rate. Beautifully presented food cooked well and tasty. We have also had lunch here and it was exceptional value. This restaurant is definitely on the list when we return to Funchal.

    Really enjoy the food at Principal especially the foie gras starter, the quality of the food is consistent. The atmosphere and service is always very enjoyable and the food and wine are good value for money

    I came here a year ago & enjoyed the food, but this time I was very disappointed. The "tempura" soft shell crab had batter so thick and heavy that I couldn't taste the crab at all. My steak was overcooked and dry, while the potatoes were also dried out. The wine as also below par.
