We are regular visitors to Madeira & this is one of our favourites. Steak on a stone, you can't beat it, like everything else at the restaurant quality is the name of the game. We can't speak for the other dishes but when we were there everybody seemed pleased with their food. Go there

Situated in the old town but nearer the Fort. This could be easily missed as it is past the lanes closest to the cable car. Recommended in a hotel conversation, this was well worthy of a visit. Good food and prices. Ideal setting with outdoor and indoor tables. Lots of atmosphere created by locals and tourists. Clearly advisable to book.... More

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.
