The Ritz Madeira is delighted to announce its new kitchen and award winning team of chefs. From fresh pastry to homemade Italian gelato, our chefs will be sure to carry their passion for the cuisine straight to your table; however, sharing our secret Ritz recipes may take some persuasion!
The Ritz offers a wide selection of light meals, afternoon teas and coffees on both the esplanade and the 1st floor terrace which both overlook the fragrant gardens.
Fresh sandwiches, croissants, quiches, omelets, scrumptious large salads and tasty pastas are all made daily in our brand new kitchen. A selection of vegetarian and wheat free meals are also available.
Madeira is of course famous for it’s original Madeira Cake, a recipe handed down through the generations, which you can now enjoy at the Ritz Madeira. Beautiful, home made cakes have been the pride of islanders for generations. The Ritz celebrates these specially guarded recipes with a wide variety of delicious and decorative homemade cakes that are artistically displayed in our glass display right next to the esplanade. In true Portuguese tradition we certainly believe in offering our guests generous portions!
Enjoy your choice of fresh cakes with a pot of the Ritz’s fine tea collection, which includes Earls Grey, Green, Vanilla, Lemon, Linden, Melissa or fresh Peppermint Tea, to name only a few. Otherwise a Classic Latte, Cappuccino, Irish Coffee or the special Ritz Royal Cognac Coffee.
Our Italian Gelato Chef produces a vast range of fresh gelato daily using the finest ingredients including fresh fruits in season and fresh milk with no preservatives or additives. He also produces two flavours of low fat frozen yoghurt daily, which is available with several, delicious toppings. Madeira grows organic, sweet bananas all year round and these are freshly picked at the islands banana plantations for our homemade banana gelato. The Ritz is now the largest producer of fresh Italian Gelato in Madeira with more than 32 flavours.
