    The location and decoration is nice, however the quality of the food and service is unfortunately the worst we have had in Madeira. The staff made mistakes with our order (incorrect starter) and were rude when this was pointed out....initially suggesting that it was our error. My steak was very overcooked and the quality was generally very poor. The adjacent table also had to send food back to the kitchen. The staff need a lot more training. Unfortunately this was our last meal in Madeira, which was a shame after such a wonderful week.

    The staff were nowhere to be seen. We had to flag them for juju a menu. A horrendous musician then started up so close to us we couldn’t have a conversation. We didn’t get to try the food As we left the restaurant, as the only good thing bout it was the view.

    Location, decor, food, wine and service were impeccable. Would thoroughly recommend this fabulous restaurant in one of the cities historic buildings. The concept menu is well worth the price and we treated ourselves to a lift home in the Austin 12 - great fun!

    We’ve eaten at the Forte many times when in Funchal. The food & service on our visit this time was of a good standard, and we enjoyed our evening.

    Excellent all-round.booked for my wife's birthday after reading the online reviews and did not disappoint..food was beautiful and well presented. Wine with every course included with the set menu option we choose,staff were extremely friendly. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Funchal. The ride back to the hotel in a 1930s vintage open top car ( at extra costs) just topped off a exceptional evening. 5 stars all round and would definitely visit again!!
