Enjoy a cool beer al fresco in the stunning coast and sea view seating. Good food for reasonable prices.

Probably better for lunch than dinner although it is very popular and therefore often busy. Food is ok but nothing special.

This place is lovely for a tuna on the bolo and a beer at lunchtime, on a sunny day looking out to sea, but for the nighttime I would give it a miss.

We have eaten here several times both for a full evening meal and for drinks and snacks during the day. The restaurant has a lovely outside terrace which looks right over the sea. Food here has always been good and we always go back when we are in Funchal.

sometimes we just like to walk and see what we come across...this was a small place with the menu on the board outside....the food was very good, it was full so you need to get there on the early side. Not expensive and very casual.

Dropped in Atlantico with no reservation (based on the menu board out on the main street) and were very lucky to get the last free table over looking the sea view (I recommend booking unlike we did!). The views are stunning and the food is superb. We skipped starters but got the garlic bread which was really good. For main... More

Found this restaurant tucked away along a steepish path. The restaurant overlooks the sea. The food was very good. We skipped the appetisers and scabbard with banana, herbed mashed potato and spinach: delicious. My husband had the salmon with herbed mashed potatoes and broccoli. Had a good bottle of red wine for €16. For pudding I had the chocolate and... More

We visited this restaurant after a gap of two years. We found the decor fresh and the organisation changed. Service was good and the staff pleasant. Our starters were delicious but we were disappointed with the main course. We both had steak Parisienne and it was served with a mountain of 'french' fries - more like crisps than chips. The...

Bit of a quandry, this one. I visited the restaurant with my wife and 2 friends in April 2013. Very pleasantly situated down a little lane, with excellent views of the coast. It was our practise to "review" and "mark" our eating experiences whilst on holiday in Funchal and I recall that this restaurant received one of our lowest aggregate... More
