We called here for a snack whilst out on a walk, as we had done several times on previous visits to the island. We ordered drinks and food. The drinks came quickly even though the place was busy. It is clearly a popular place as each time a table was vacated it was immediately filled again. We noticed drinks always... More

As many others we were just walking through the Old Town and found it by accident. After which we revisited several times. It's usually busy, the food and drinks are good and reasonably priced. The service is a little slow as each time we went there, there was really only one waiter who was managing lunch time service by himself.... More

This is a really nice pavement cafe away from the hustle of the touristy restaurants on Rua de Santa Maria. Service is friendly and efficient. The poncha was the real deal, too! It also has the benefit of being very near one of our favourite restaurants in Funchal, o Tasco, so perfect for an aperitif. We came here several times... More

Came across this little cafe as we were about to turn around and head back towards the old town. We sat over the road with a view out to sea. Just had coffee and PCT's (pastal de nata). Everything you would want. Efficient and friendly. Will come back if we wander by this way.

This is a small bar/restaurant with tables inside and on the other side of the street. It is good to stay here in the afternoon when the sun is shining. Good prices, 33 cal beer was 1.50€ in December 2016. We didn't eat, but the smell from the neighbors table was fabulous.

Happy that we found this place close to the see with a beautiful view over the harbour. The drinks are really good. Can highly recommend the Madeiran cocktails! We will be back!

Stopped in part to shelter form rain, but we had had good reports of this place. Service fairly quick but with the view and being on holiday a wait would not hAve mattered. Both had very good toasties, not dry but plenty of filling. Chips a bit soggy but tasty, service with smile. Lovely place to call for a quick... More

Five minutes walk from our holiday apartment, this street cafe was one of our favourite places for a drink or two (sea view and crashing waves below!), or a snack lunch (who craves a "toastie" on holiday? These are so good that's exactly what we did - so much so we made them our "last lunch"!!!). The staff were great... More
