We called here after a boat trip as the terrace was in the sun. The owner/manager served us and he was lovely, as was the service and the food. All quite cheap too!

We have spent many holidays in Funchal over the last 10 years and always come back to this restaurant in the Old Town. Consistently great food and service. Reasonable prices too. One not to miss for anyone visiting Funchal.

Stopped here on our walk around Funchal. Glad we did. Delicious cakes, not many to choose from but would certainly recommend.

Sorry I,m afraid I can't remember either. All of the food was delicious and going by how friendly and helpful the waiters were I think they would be able to accommodate you.

It is open from midday every day until about 11pm. We have never booked but it is advisable at weekends and holidays if you are wanting an evening meal.
