    Worst dining experience of my life , food totally inedible and service poor . The only plus was the wine I ordered was superb well In fact the wine I ordered wasn’t the wine that was served to me . They brought out another which was twice the price and still charged me for it .. so all in all I ate nothing and just had the over priced wine I didn’t order... avoid the joke of a restaurant at all costs????????????????????????????????????????

    We were unaware of set Valentine menu but Mr.Baptiste ensured to accommodate our request for a steak..and was himself very courtageous all the way through the dinner. floor staff was disappointing despite just only about half restaurant full...few waiters/waitresses served us at the same time what made a big mess.Asked many times the same questions,not getting answers. No one ever asked how we want our steak(but ok). Waited 15min for they clean the plates and serve desert-the only very tasty and well presented part of the meal. More over,steak was tasteless, so was sweet potato pure. Waiters ignored our request to clean the dirty glasses no longer used and generally were just passing us with ignorance. Most of attention was given to elderly clientele only. Restaurant has a great potential but lacking of execution and properly trained floor staff and in my opinion chef who season the meals accurately. Having good location and great view is not enough to pretend gourmet dining. All in all it was a bad experience.If not politeness of Mr.Baptiste it would be terrible. Going through the back(parking)side it was like entering some dodgy secret club not a restaurant. Clearly have not seen it all...

    Excellent evening, food and wine. Decided to go for a selection of glasses of wine and found their wine person very good in recommending right wine for each course. It was so good booked a table for tomorrow night

    Soufle was not cooked correctly and still raw. Was corrected and cooked again properly Glasses too big for a woman to hold and very strange cutlery which was going to be changed in the near future

    Excellent food, presentation, service. Good selection of wines by the glass. Make sure you try the bream - out of this world

    A really good menu, a very good wine list and great service. What would pull it one more step is to have a more obvious Madeira connection and a vision between the wine list and the food. Even more so between Madeira wine and the food. Still a high recommendation!

    First and last courses were very good but the main meat course ( pork with blood sausage) was dissapointing visually poor and bland on the palate. Service was very efficient and polite.

    Excellent location, great view, food could be a bit more honest, sometimes they overcomplicate...my opinion

    Lovely setting with views over the city and very friendly and helpful staff. Reasonable vegetarian options although one of the choices didn’t work! The mix of flavours in general maybe a little rich and unnecessarily complicated. Wine top end prices Meal not cheap, so check the menu for your tastes before you book.

    Food was 5 star quality and did not disappoint at all. Pricey but worth it for special occasion, as was our case. Would definitely recommend.

    So nice of the staff to arrange a vegan menu for us. Really delicious wines for the food. The three courses were good, albeit the sweet potato soup was a bit too sweet and lacked acidic balance. Four out of five stars. See you again!

    For a member of the leading hotels of the world they need to retrain the restaurant manager. If a customer says that the fish is over cooked it is not for him to challenge and cause embarrassment. I’ve been visiting UVA and the Vine for many years now. Not again there are many better high end restaurants in Funchal now.
