Cidade Velha, Faro Reviews
Wonderful meal. Service was very good. Monkfish rice stew was just superb. So good we plan to come back to try the steaks. Highly recommend.
Very good food and great service. I spend a few days in the neighborhood for a job and was here almost every day for a soup, sandwich or cafe. I also ate in the restaurant one night. Very nice indeed.
A superb restaurant with a large sea front terrace and delightful interior offering great food with excellent service. Michelin star levels of presentation. The very finest in Funchal's old town and unmissable.
Unfortunately this restaurant didn't turn out as well as I had hoped after reading some reviews. That was especially due to our waiter. Maybe it was more him rather than the restaurant and its personnel, because other waiters seemed less cranky. The waiter seemed impatient and would stand just one metre from our table, pressing us to hurry, after we'd asked to get a little more time. Also he didn't feel inclined to check certain ingredients for us with the chef after we'd asked because my girlfriend can't eat everything due to her pregnancy. The food itself was tasty, nothing to complain there, except for the fact that we were told to expect some sort of cake as dessert when ordering 'Delicia de Algarve', when in fact it was some sort of yoghurt cup. Also note that if you accept the offer to get some bread and olives as a small starter (which in many places is naturally provided and without charge), you pay for it per per person. So €2 couvert per person and also €3 extra if you eat some of the cheese they put on the table. Not at all the hospitable Algarve I know from experience.
delicious food, gorgeous location. I really recommend it
