The Dining Room, Funchal, Madeira

In Reid's Palace, Estrada Monumental
Funchal , Madeira
Tel: 291 717 171's insider take:

With more waiters than diners and more chandeliers than the average royal palace, the main (if un-inventively named) Dining Room at the prestigious Reid's Palace Hotel is every inch Edwardian splendor, with dancing every Saturday evening. Fun for celebrity spotting, but don't expect sublime food. Men must wear jackets and ties (you can buy cheap silk ones at stalls down by the harbor).
