    After this restaurant visit I asked myself: What do I expect from a Michelin decorated restaurant? Is it the ambience, the service, the special charm that this type of restaurant exudes? No, it is all about this special feeling of surprise to be able to enjoy a dish in a very own composition. The kitchen shares your soul with the guest. Unfortunately, I missed this feeling of bliss here. After many visits to Michelin Star restaurants, this is actually the first and hopefully the last time to have been so disappointed. No criticism without a recommendation for improvement: Basically, it's about the interplay of tastes, the consistency of the dishes is missing here. each dish in itself is confused and without soul. less frills, more taste and soul!

    This is, by a long way, the best restaurant in Funchal.

    We know several Portuegese restaurants with a Michelin star, where we doubt its validity. Not in this case *+. Everything in harmony, the excellent food the nice advices from the personel and all over the nice way they serviced us. Top!!!!

    We had a fantastic evening. We did hesitate because of a previous visit last year but this was so much better and a lasting experience. We will not hesitate again.

    Mixed feelings really. Some of the courses were great but the main of pork suckling pig was very average and the reduction was taken too far and produced a jus that was over salty. The service and wine pairings were spot on but overall we both felt the food was over seasoned and overall very expensive when compared to other Michellin restaurants we have been to. Overall is was still a fantastic night but I also felt some disappointed that the chef didn’t take the time out to visit his clientele., something we have not experienced before. At each restaurant we visited in the past, the chef had always taken the time to seek out his customers if only to acknowledge their presence. We both felt we we’re unlikely to return.
