A hidden gem

Tucked away in a side alley not far from our hotel, this restaurant was the best we found in Funchal. The food was fantastic as was the staff and the service. Shame we found it at the end of our holiday!!

Tucked away just a few minutes from my hotel, I went twice to this lovely, friendly restaurant. The welcome was great, as was the food, service and value for money. Prawns in avocado and beef medallions were my first nights choice with beef stroganoff for my return meal. No disappointments with either. Always looked busy so I would recommend a... More

We made our third trip to the restaurant in February. You are always greeted with a tremendous smile from the owner who is charm itself. My wife had steak on the stone- the perfect way to control the cooking of your steak and also keep it hot as you gradually eat your meal. It was fabulous. I had beef stroganoff.... More

Excellent restaurant with fantastic traditional food and great service. It's around 10min walk from central Funchal. The young owner/manager is enthuastic yet professional. Would highly recommend a visit here.

We go here at least twice every year and it never disappoints. Lovely atmosphere and fabulous staff, all so happy and willing. Food is a good standard and served with a good selection of vegetables, potatoes and salad. Prices are very reasonable. Always very busy so make sure you book.

Visited on third night of our trip, due to good reviews. Steak Diane pretty good and the staff were pleasant but only just above average as far as both of us were concerned. Obviously quite popular though as plenty of people eating there.

Found Casal da Penha by luck, tucked away in a side street, on our first evening in Funchal. We were warmly welcomed and were fortunate to get a table as the restaurant was busy. The food and service was excellent. Beautifully presented and not overpriced. So impressed that we returned a few days later to sample the good food and... More

Everything spot on, great service, funny and kind. Brilliant food. Steak on a stone might be the best steak ever for me. Good wine and complimentary drink as well.
