    Having walked past here a few times we always thought it looked a little bit too up-market for our tastes and therefore possibly a bit more expensive than we would usually want to pay. But pay no attention to this - the welcome and the service is great and the costs for a main course are no higher than you'd pay anywhere else around here. My chicken dish was really lovely, but on reflection my wife was disappointed with the prawn tagliatelli - there were only four prawns and the sauce was a bit runny and tasteless. However this won't put us off going again on our next trip.

    Although very quiet we still had a lovely night at this local restaurant. The tables are set beautifully and although there is a reduced menu there is still something for everyone. We thoroughly enjoyed our black pork cheeks, seafood linguine and chocolate fondant dessert. A pleasure to eat here, hope it survives to next year as we’ll definitely be back.

    Food with Music on Friday evening. The Menu and the vine list are very, very small. It’s a restaurant only for older people

    Really lovely little French restaurant in Madeira, the sea bass fillet was superb, as was the shrimp in the seafood linguine. The red wine from the douro region (forget the name) was delightful, we had it served chilled "as the locals do" as the maitre'de suggested and did not regret our choice.

    Really nice meal. Menu different from the rest and food quality excellent. Recommend the beef carpaccio and the pork cheeks. We’ll definitely be back ????

    My third visit to the restaurant and much prefer the previous set menu. Little consideration for Coeliac customers. Only one choice of wine which was dry.

    A bit disappointing compared to the last time we went to Goya as the food had been exceptional but there was a very limited menu this time but felt very welcome and hopefully as more come back to the Island things will improve

    So disappointed with our visit to Goya last night. It has always been my favourite restaurant in Funchal and, I understand that times are difficult, but that doesn’t excuse mediocre food. We went for the Concept meal as usual. There was a reduced menu, which was fine but there was no amuse bouche, no palette cleanser between courses and the food that did come was just ordinary = no flare at all. They charged €41.50 a head but it really wasn’t good value. Really sorry to have to leave a negative review.

    Lovely setting and first class food. We are disappointed that we are unable to return to Goya during this Madeira holiday - but we SHALL return in the future.

    Superb! From the warm welcome, the generosity of the service to say nothing of the fabulous singer and accompanying pianist. The food was both a delight to see and delicious. The whole evening was a triumph. It was our 3rd visit to this wonderful restaurant and we have never been disappointed with anything. Have already booked to go again next week.booking is a must as the place was filled to capacity on a Thursday evening.

    Though this Valentine meal was good, we have eaten better food at this restaurant in the past. Bearing in mind that the meal was a set menu, I felt that the chefs were making the food easy to prepare. e.g. the amuse Boucher was cold and also the soup which followed. However the octopus tentacle was cooked to perfection as was the duck in the main course. The lemon meringue was the most flavoursome part of the meal.

    An attractive venue a bit above the rest, food excellent, staff friendly and helpful. Music very enjoyable. With a 30% discount having booked with Fork was helpful.

    Great food. Menu needs some indication of any allergens present as I am allergic to shell fish and lactose intolerant. Staff were however very helpful.

    Staff were very friendly, attentive, courteous and polite. The restaurant was full with a lovely ambience which was further enhanced when two musicians (on piano and violin) arrived halfway through our meal to provide wonderful entertainment. The 30%discount was an added bonus.

    As regular visitors to Madeira, my wife and I always enjoy a romantic dinner at Goya, especially on Thursday evenings, which is a delightful combination of fine dining interspersed with musical entertainment, provided by renowned soprano, Maria Ferreira and her piano accompanist. Operatic arias and songs from well known shows create a memorable ambience, and Goya's customers invariably leave with a smile on their faces. The restaurant offers a concept menu (including regular topping up of wine!) around the 40 euro mark; alternatively you can opt - as we did on our most recent visit - for a starter and main from the a la carte. Both are very good value ….Enjoy!
