Real Canoa


The Restaurante Real Canoa is situated at the far end of the Estrada Monumental road in Funchal and is a little distant from the line of hotels found in the lido zone. A very popular restaurant among new visitors but especially returning visitors to the island. Interior is traditionally Madeiran as is the menu. Serves very good meat dishes including specialty Espetada and steak cooked on a hot stone (at your table). Also specializes in traditional seafood dishes. Portions are generous and food well prepared and fresh. The wine list is also pleasing. Service is very friendly and welcoming with the restaurant owner as the main host. English is spoken well by all staff as well as some other languages. Offers occasional live music and entertainment. Includes patio for outdoor eating. Restaurante Real Canoa is ideal for all types of dining but the atmosphere is better during evening meals. A value for money restaurant.
