We enjoyed an excellent dinner here which started with Limpets and included the Scabbard fish and Tuna along with their garlic bread and house wine. All was reasonably priced and the multilingual staff provided excellent service.

We had food here three times on our trip one of the more affordable restaurants in Funchal. The tomato and onion soup was my favorite in Madeira. Staff were always friendly too.

I rated A Bica as 'excellent' because it is excellent for what it is. It is the place where locals go for good food at a good price and a friendly atmosphere. It is not 'fine dining' in fact it's not even 'smart dining' but...More
