This was a lovely restaurant on the edge of the Old Town. We sat outside and enjoyed the chilled atmosphere and delicious food. We ate here twice and both times were happy with our food. I'm a strict vegetarian and it's worth noting this is one of the few places in Funchal that caters well for those with special requests.... More

We had several nice meals in the Xarambinha. The number one seller in this restaurant is "Steak on the stone", which is indeed high quality beef served sizzling hot on a stone with garnishes and baked potatoes. Do not miss it. Pizzas here are high quality too (and big variety), and the sizes are healthy enough for two people. Service... More

Very lovely restaurant and such good food! Do try the steak on stone, you'll love it! The people working there are so kind and welcoming; this place even became our spot to get our night cap. One of our favourite places to go to!

We don't normally leave reviews but felt the need for this restaurant. Visited twice, the pizza is excellent and the steak on a stone is the best. Hope to visit again before we leave.

Visited the Xarambinha restaurant for dinner. Ordered the steak on a stone. The dish was served with baked potato and salad and the hot stone allowed you to cook the steak to your exact liking - really neat and very tasty.

A great little Italian in a little square in the old town. You will walk past a lot of restaurants with people trying to get you in, it is worth walking past them to this place! The pizzas are amazing, loads of toppings! The steak on the stone is also wonderful.

Big variety of food, to me the best was Italian food: pizza, spagethi. Pizza was saturated with a lot of cheese and ham. Staff was really friendly and the service was good and fast.

I wish we'd read the reviews before going. The food was tasteless and totally underwhelming. There are so many good, well run restaurants in Funchal with tasty food, don't waste your money here. We told the head guy we thought the food was poor, and he did nothing to appease us, in fact, we were completely ignored afterwards. What with... More

I was there for a family gathering and the service and food were great. The tuna steak on the hot stone is a remarkable experience.
