Probably need to book to get table upstairs but worth it - great food and service - restaurant where you can order steak rare without worrying about quality

The restaurant was perfect for the first night of our holiday, just 50m away from our hotel and served the most delicious paella that we have had for many a year. The staff were most friendly and welcoming and we would definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone on any day of the week.

It's not so easy to find, somewhere hidden behind the Casino and a large construction site between some of the last low rise houses and huts of the area and still there are quite a lot of vacationers finding their way to the Casal Da Penha. What you get from the menue is the usual mix of seafood and meat,... More

There are a lot of restaurants at this end of Funchal, between the Casino and Reid's Hotel. We've eaten in quite a few of them and, in my opinion, this is the best. It's a "smart casual" sort of a place, with the restaurant spread over an indoor room and a small terrace on one floor, and a large open... More

This is a lovely restaurant with a nice atmosphere and superb staff. The menu is impressive with plenty of variation for most tastes. I would certainly recommend any of the fish dishes, which also come with superbly prepared vegetables. Well worth a visit!

This place is busy every night so might be an idea to book, food was tasty but nothing special, quite pricey too. Maderia cake with hot honey and wine sauce was amazing as the dessert.

We visited Casal Da Penha as it was situated next to the hotel we were staying at (Quinta da Penha de Franca). I'm glad we did! The food was excellent and the service from our waitress (karina) was superb, explaining many things on the menu and helping out with choosing a wine. We ordered 2 steak on the stones, which...

Excellent food. Fresh fish, excellent steaks and perfect lamb. Very hard to criticise anything here, both food and service are top drawer. Book ahead if you want to dine on the terrace (which you absolutely do).
