Over the years we have been to Casal da Penha several times and never been disappointed - this year was no exception. The food is probably the best we have eaten on the island and the atmosphere on the upstairs terrace is great - bustling, always busy but with friendly efficient service. We'll definitely be back!

We ate twice at the casual da penha and both my meals were disappointing. My chateaubriand was just awful. Crisp on the outside, no seasoning or sauce, badly carved and the bright yellow goo served with it was inedible. The night before my fish stew had little fish taste. My wife,however, enjoyed her salmon. Service is cheerful and the setting... More

The staff are very friendly and you get shown to a table very quickly. The dishes are varied and the staff honest in that the starter of Tuna or Sardine salad was fresh from the tin, although I forgot to ask where the tin was caught. I opted for chicken instead. Overall the portions are big! So big that we... More

This is a bustling family run restaurant. The staff are welcoming, pleasant and efficient. The food is tasty. And the wines good. It's always busy with people returning year after year. Thoroughly recommended.

The location is good with a lovely terrace. The food we had was very good and there was a nice choice. Staff seemed friendly too. It wasn't the best we had on our holiday so I didn't want to give a 5 star review.

We booked a table for here and good thing we did as it was fully booked for any walk ins! We got a lovely table on terrace and the manager on duty was quick and attentive, his knowledge of the food and wine went a long way! The starters came, very generous portions- garlic prawns and the piri piri squid... More

We didn't go all inclusive on this holiday as we wanted to go to a different restaurant every night but the food at the Casal Da Penha was so delicious that we went back 3 times in a week ! The fillet steak on a stone is just amazing , the fish of the day was delicious and everything was... More
