Sushi at Lunch

About the restaurant Santa Maria Funchal

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.

Great meal with really good house wine. We chose the excellent sushi as a starter, followed by tuna on a stone. We were also impressed by the service.

Everything was excellent, especially the service. We were disappointed that the sushi bar was not open but apparently, it always closes on a Sunday. It’s our fault,we should have checked! However, we had lovely food and a good bottle of house wine so we were very happy. We will go again to eat sushi!

Good quality local food. Was recommended to us as somewhere where we could get Madeiran food. Situated in a nice street staff were very attentive. Food portions are large. But very tasty. Happy to recommend.

Great sushi in Madeira!!
Restaurant
Hello,
Thank you for recommending and reviewing Restaurante Santa Maria. Although we are a Portuguese restaurant since we have such lovely fish in Madeira we just had to try making Sushi.
We hope to see you again and we will do our best to surpass all expectations.
Once again we can only say thank you,
Santa Maria Team
