Madeiran

in Funchal

Take a superb location on pedestrianised Rua da Carreira, a team plucked from top Madeiran restaurants and an inspired owner, and the result is one of the most authentic dining experiences in the archipelago. João Caldeira has a created a restaurant with perfect service, meticulous attention to detail and 100% Madeiran dishes using island-sourced ingredients as far as possible.

When choosing, your finger could do worse than land on the Madeiran tomato soup, belly of tuna and pudim de maracuja (maracuja cheesecake) for dessert. All the fish is fresh and local, and the herbs used in dishes are from the owner's own garden near Santana.
