Service was very slow - took 45mins for the starter to come. The prawns were dry and tasteless. Waited another long time for the risotto which was barely warm and nothing special. Overall very disappointed - had to check that it was the regular chef...More

Sat outside under heaters. Had cream of cauliflower soup to start followed by tiger prawn risotto, and both were truly delicious. The service was excellent. Highly recommended.

By the old lido. Great views during the day – lunch time menu offered and atmospheric at night with great food. Eat outside if you can.

The food was great and the view from the veranda was wonderful. The service was generally good and helpful. 2 minor buts: Every where else in Funchal we were able to get a jug of tap water but here we were told it was “not...More

Not sure we just walked in off the street. They have a menu outside you can read if you don't want to go in. Alternatively they have one at the reception bar as you walk in. All very friendly no pressure to eat.
