.....and in accordance with that famous old Irish law having walked past in it heaps of times we finally tried it on our last night. But it was worth it! Ambience: rather bigger than it appears from the outside it has an open terrace downstairs with a dining room and glassed in balcony upstairs. For me the upstairs balcony is... More

We found this place by accident, having wandered around the area and not liking the more highly ranked eating houses. Closest to our hotel, we wandered back to it to be told by leaving guests that "it was the best place they had eaten'. Naturally, we then went in! It was a beautiful building, with a very pleasant atmosphere and... More

Based on our guide (du routard) which recommended this restaurant my girlfriend and I went there for dinner. She took a madeiran skewer (they improperly called it kebab) and I took spaghetti with lobster (affordable for 23€). We both enjoyed these dishes and especially the desserts which came after (banana cake and gratin of mango). Everything was tasty, they propose... More

Had seafood risotto which was excellent as was the swordfish starter. Setting is elegant and choice of indoor and outdoor eating with a pleasant bar to the side

We had dinner here while in Funchal, and it was probably the best meal we ate. The restaurant is an old converted house, so it feels extremely authentic and rustic. The staff were all very attentive, and service was quick. The food was fabulous, so tasty and reasonably priced as well. A real unique experience in Madeira, and one of... More

Finished up visiting this restaurant and bar several times at the end of March. It is a real gem of a place next to the Casino Park hotel where we were staying. Tried the dinner at the Casino hotel on the first night and were very disappointed. We happened to look out of room window and noticed the Casa Velha.... More

We went a for an evening meal. Friendly staff and food was impeccable. There is a bar area downstairs and we sat upstairs in the restaurant. There is a chap cooking in the middle of the restaurant for some meals which is fascinating in itself. Restaurant has a bit of an old school grandeur feel to it. Prompt service and... More

We ate here as it was close to our hotel. The old house converted to a restaurant serves good food at reasonable prices. The wines are a little overpriced (as almost always in restaurants) and the selection was acceptable. The food was well presented and tasty. Posrtions were sufficient without being too big. Service and attention to detail was good.... More
