We saw this restaurant on a walk around the old town during the day and decided it was a bit away from the touristic restaurants and worth a try. Unfortunately the food was very ordinary and tasteless. I had the cauliflower soup for entreé and it tasted like barely flavoured water. One of the worst soups I've ever had. The... More

Walked up here for lunch, and had a table at the edge with views down over the sea. We found the service was acceptable, and the food was also very good. Not expensive as a standalone, but more expensive than eating in the main body of the Old Town where competition is prevalent. It's woth a visit for the view... More

Quite a nice experience. Food was very decent and creative, service was attentive. And the view truly spectacular. Worth a visit.

This was a meal of varying success, one starter was great (coconut prawns), the other was (goats cheese and pesto) terrible - nearly all pesto, tiny slither of goats cheese. One risotto was better than the other (Parrott fish was excellent...bland risotto sadly) . Quite pricey for the quality of the food at €85 ex service for two starters, two... More

The beautiful cliff top setting caught our eye and persuaded us t o visit this restaurant. Boy were we disappointed. I had the Cauliflower soup which was bland and tasteless. The restaurant promotes rice dishes form around the world. I chose the beetroot and goats cheese risotto - very watery and bland. There are so many good restaurants in Funchal... More

We read about this place in our guide book and were so glad we went. The food was fantastic as was the wine and service, the staff were very friendly. Absolutely nothing to fault. It's such a lovely view too.

We were tempted by this place a year ago, when we were first time in Funchal. This time, as we were staying almost on its doorstep, there was no excuse to not book a table :). Menu sounded very interesting and we were not disappointed. I have ordered beetroot risotto with goat cheese and the flavour was ... ehhh..I could... More

Just had another superb meal at Riso. Coconut shrimp and duck carppachio to start were exceptional. Filet steak and veggie risotto was sublime. Last Saturday in the month is candle night to respect the planet. Nice touch though we did have to look on TA photos see how good the dishes looked under normal lighting. It didn't detract from the... More

The risota was Great, the Madeira Tiramisu was Great and the Aperol Spritz was also great. The only thing that wasn't really up to the standards was the table setting (snack bar unstylish mood). The view compensares for that

Great views and a novel concept to base a menu on a humble grain but it definitely works! The food was lovely and my duck course was stunning, absolutely delicious, as was the dessert of mango sticky rice The setting is lovely and the staff are nice. Sometimes you have to do a lot to attract attention but that's Madeira... More
