The Ritz Fresh Salads
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!

Our waffles have been described by a young admirer as falling ‘straight out of heaven with a magical sprinkle of glittery icing sugar’. Try your Ritz waffle with fresh, seasonal fruit and our homemade gelato. Our Cafe and Restaurant menu offer a wide range of special, delicious gelato desserts.
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.
