We stayed in Pestana Carlton to celebrate my 60th Birthday and decided to eat at the taverna Grill. We order Arroz Gammas (Prawn Rice with sea bas fish) and Legumes Grartin (Chicken with veg dish) dishes- the Veg in the chicken dish was uncooked and it was uneatable- My wife did not eat. we mention to the waiter and the manager offered the desert as a complement. This was a bad experience. While we were there two other guests also complained about there food. Hope this was one off bad day for the chef and not a regular occurrence.

Always visit when we’re in Madeira. Great venue, looks very authentic. The staff are always very professional. Needless to say the food is great and a huge choice.

We arrived at the hotel on a late flight but were pleased to see that this restaurant was still open (at about 9:40 pm) The food was excellent as was the wine and service!
The bill for a 2 course a la carte meal with wine, water, bread and coffee came to only €68 which is amazing value for a restaurant in a 5 star hotel. Strangely, it is only open from Thursday to Sunday so we did not have the opportunity to eat here again.
Would recommend eating here

The Second Coming

Lunching in the Old Quarter of Funchal is sometimes a difficult choice to make. The narrow streets with its numerous restaurants, cafes and bars are all too inviting. That’s why they always have staff outside luring you in. The best we found was Taverna Real. Paolo draws you in and the good food keeps you coming back! Twice for us, in fact! His antics and animated personality are too much to ignore so do sit down and take your time pouring over their extensive menu. However, if you are still undecided as to what to order, go with this bit of advice. Close the menu and order their Cataplana. Be careful, though, what you say. If you agree to ‘for two persons’, you will get a single pot and true enough it is for two persons…times two!! What they mean is that you are two persons and you have each ordered one dish which they make it look like one order. Never mind, though, the taste will keep you going back to refill your bowl….over and over and over again. By the time you finish, you just know you will be back for a second meal like we did!!
