Excellent Meal on a Roof Top Terrace

We ate at this restaurant last night and had an excellent meal in a great location. Definitely recommend. The menu has lots of choice and the food is of excellent quality and the prices are very reasonable.

Lovely restaurant with high quality ingredients and service. We had a mixed grilled fish plate which came with a variety of vegetables as sides. The personnel was delightful, hospitable and helpful. We visited the restaurant twice during our stay, and remained equally pleased both times.

We ate here on our first night in Funchal and now I think we're in trouble because we'll benchmark every local cuisine restaurant against it. The fillet steak was incredible and at €17 it is simply unmissable. The beef skewer (esperada?) was also fantastic. They could justify charging twice what they do. We will be back this week.

We only discovered this restaurant late in the holiday, so unfortunately only visited once. The food was excellent, and the service was first class. The friendly and attentive staff contributed to a relaxed and very enjoyable evening.

We went to Casal da Penha for dinner twice. So good - the atmosphere is excellent -and once we were seated downstairs outside and once on the upper terrace, both were great. The food was delicious and the service both friendly and attentive. Highly recommended. Make a reservation if you want a terrace table.

We've been coming to Madeira for years, cannot believe we haven't been here before! Found through Trip Advisor, best discovery of the holiday. Just down the road from Pestana Carlton, sitting on a beautiful, spacious terrace, the food was excellent, so accommodating to all requirements and children's tastes... You can order anything from the menu as a child's portion, my... More

Visited Casal Da Penha based on other Tripadvisor reviews. Excellent meal at a moderate price (30 Euros a head incl drinks). We all had fish, Tuna and Espada and all enjoyed our meal.
