    From the outside the restaurant looks empty, until you walk to the back where there is a beautiful terrace. I feel this might put some people off, which would be a shame! The staff were very friendly and helpful, and suggested some great local gins! My boyfriend had the grilled steak, which was cooked to perfection. I had the sushi, which was fresh, delicious but also different to what I usually have (this used fresh fruit in the dish which made it quite sweet). We had the dessert where you could have three from the menu. The chocolate mousse is a must have!

    We were there in a group of 10 people and the food, the service and the ambience at the back garden were incredibly good! Best restaurant we have been in Madeira so far. Really recommendable.

    Excellent food and wine in a wonderful enclosed garden with great service from a lovely, friendly team. I would highly recommend Santa Maria in Funchal.

    Good Realisation of Social distancing. Friendly staff. Reduced menu, we missed our always preferred desert, the Santa Maria merengue. The atmosphere in the garden is still amazing.

    We felt very welcome here. There was a good range of dishes with many Portuguese specialities. The dish my husband chose was too salty for him and immediately it was changed for another dish. All the staff were really helpful and I would recommend the place and the food.

    Everything was OK, I only can recommend, especially bife na pedra and salmon, but also frango. It's my third visit in one week and I'll come back again!

    Always a good meal at this restaurant. We chose, on this occasion, to go on Wednesday for the all you can eat sushi plus delicious soup. The staff here are always very efficient and pleasant and everything is always delivered in the right time frame. It’s obvious to see that this is a very well run and organised restaurant

About the restaurant

Located at the charismatic Santa Maria street and set in a former elementary school, it retains its original centenary architecture and sits in the heart of Funchal´s old town, within a 5 minute walk from the city centre and the beautiful seafront.

Our menu offers a wide array of delicious food, from regional Madeiran and traditional Portuguese gastronomy to well-loved international cuisine. All made with care and making use of fresh local produce, try our homemade bread while you choose from the menu. With plenty of seafood from our seas and an excellent range of juicy meats, local delicacies and traditional best sellers mingle perfectly with daring re-imaginations so everyone will have an amazing experience. We pride ourselves in the diversity of our kitchen where every detail counts, you can see as everything is prepared as the kitchen opens into the main dining room with a contemporary air and a decor inspired by traditional fishmongers.

A second dining room aiming to be a place for a more casual meal is available. Beyond the dining room secluded and at the back of the building you will find a lovely private terrace unique in the area and in high demand by Madeirans. We are open every day, the “Santa Maria Hostel and Restaurant” has become a must stop destination in the old town of Funchal.
