Atmospheric restaurant, with excellent food and service

The restaurant has a vast selection of dishes, we had espada fish. The food was tasty and the dishes looked lovely. House wine (red) was also to our liking. We had three waiters serving us, all were very friendly.

Great Evening! Nearly perfect service. Great fish food with Individualität service. WE, couple around 50 spent a quiet Evening in the lower terrace under blooming trees. A perfect dinner. WE made a reservation for a birthday dinner next week.

This restaurant was recommended to me so I set out to find it. Shame it is tucked away on a side street. Bigger than it looks, very friendly and welcoming staff, food and service were excellent and the portions very generous. Well worth it.

We had a very nice dinner there, massive tuna steaks! The service was a bit slow, but friendly. And the view from the terrace if nice.

Ate here twice whilst on holiday and both times didn't disappoint. The welcome and ongoing service in this restaurant was by far the best we experienced whilst in Madeira. I believe this is family run restaurant and the young man who appeared to be 'running it' on the two occasions we visited was so sincere with his greeting and absolutely... More

We arrived in Madeira on a Monday evening - same as many travellers - and were armed with a short-list of restaurants to visit. Casal Da Penha was on our short-list but we did not visit until the fourth night of our stay - how foolish we felt! We returned on the final night of our stay just because the... More

From the road, this restaurant looks like a tiny place but it has two terraces and indoors the restaurant is surprisingly large. The staff were charming and more than happy to explain the dishes. We went for lunch and it was relatively quiet but even though we had tried very expensive and quite expensive restaurants before this one, we really... More

My wife and I ate here 3 times in a week, and every time it was just superb. We ate at other restaurants in the top 10 on trip advisor, but none were as good as here.

Extremely busy the first time we visited but the staff coped. The food was well prepared from an extensive menu. We had fish and could only praise the meal. Staff always obliging despite being under pressure. Attended a musical folk evening on the second occasion. Again well done and not intrusive on the diners.

This was our choice for our last dinner of our holiday and we weren't disappointed Whilst a little more expensive than most of our other dining choices, we didn't feel out of pocket Menu choice to suit most tastes, although we didn't notice any special dietary needs, but given that the staff were very helpful, particularly the maitre d, then...
