We went to this place 8 years ago on another visit and decided to go back. We are so glad we did. We had our best meal out in Funchal. It is cheap (9.50 plates of the day), the food is local, delicious and plenty of it and service is fast. It is amongst many other 'posher' restaurants in the... More

Had dinner here one evening. It was quite early and this place seemed to have the most people in so we thought that must be a good sign and decided to try the tourist menu which at €9.50 for two courses and coffee seemed good value. I had the soup followed by chops which were both decent.

Excellent value set menu. Highly recommend grilled scabbard fish. Freshly caught and cooked, accompained by natural, wholesome pulses, rice and fruits - all for €9.50 (including starter). Delicious house red wine, v.generous glass size. We ate here twice and had an excellent meal on each occasion. Friendly, attentive staff interested in serving good, local cuisine.

Had a really good lunch from the prix fixe menu of 9.50 euros. We weren't hustled by touts! Good tasty food at reasonable prices.

Visited Madeira for first time on cruise stop off. After exploring we decided to find somewhere for lunch. Having passed a number of touristy places we happened upon Embaixador Madeirense. Sat on pavement on Rua de Santa Maria we ordered both from daily menu, which was amazing value at €9.95, and standard menu. Food was gorgeous. Best salmon I've had... More

A restaurant that could be a good place to enjoy a meal, because the Cheff is a good cooker and very nice person. But the 'Shorty' Manager is an awful person, not polite and always cursing in Portuguese... Never to return. Be advised!!! :-(

This place has a cheap lunch set menu (Eur 9.50) that when we went was tasty and plentiful. The tables outside are squashed into a narrow street, and passers by are very close indeed. The waiter was having an off day, I'm sure, but was pretty forgetful. Getting past these points, the food was well worth the money.

This restaurant is again in the old quarter of the tow which is teeming with restaurants and as do many of cafe/restaurants they offer what they term as a tourist menu, which usually runs to a two or three set menu with an overall price, here it was 9.50euros for a three course meal. Food was excellent good atmosphere, we... More

We decided to give this restaurant a go, as it was in the lovely Old Town street of Rua Santa Maria. The tables outside looked nice and the tourist menu was very reasonable. My husband chose Scabbard fish, I opted for tuna steak and my daughter went for an item on the main menu, bolognese, We had soup to start,... More
