The Ritz Madeira

The Ritz Madeira is one of the oldest grand cafes in Funchal, Madeira, located on the main street opposite the beautiful fragrant municipal gardens in bloom 12 months a year. The Ritz open-air esplanade and 1st floor terrace both overlook the enchanting colourful gardens with the backdrop of the majestic Madeira Mountains.
Our varied menu caters for all palettes with a selection of food & drinks, light snacks and upstairs our restaurant with live cabaret show and dancing every Saturday night.
Our homemade Italian Gelato is not to be missed and available in 32 delicious flavours, all made daily by our Gelato Chef with no preservatives or additives.

The Ritz Madeira serves one of the best traditional English afternoon teas, and you can book a table to enjoy it any day of the week between 13:00 and 16:00.
