“Um misto de sensações, num único espaço”, assim se pode descrever Casal da Penha. Uma restaurante que se encontra rodeado pelo imenso azul do mar, que cria o ambiente acolhedor e ideal para desfrutar de um serviço de excelência e sereno. Aqui, pode contar com um espaço interior extremamente requintado e dois espaços ao ar livre, onde pode degustar as especialidades da casa debaixo das estrelas.

A cozinha do Casal da Pinha assenta na gastronomia tradicional, internacional e mediterrânica: uma versatilidade que conquista os mais diferentes gostos e paladares.


A carta do Casal da Pinha é extensa, variada e conta com verdadeiras iguarias que farão as maravilhas ao seu sentido gustativo. Para tal, aposte, por exemplo, nos Medalhões de Filet com Vinho Madeira. Se por outro lado, prefere uma opção de peixe, não hesite em experimentar a Zarzuela de Mariscos.

    Very Relaxed Restaurant serving top notch food, excellent staff, very efficient, great food choices plus specials of the day. I only found this restaurant by chance in the summer and have visited about 10 times during my 2 holidays in Madeira

    The food was fine, but nothing special. The vegan option was rice and vegetables for 15.50 and the soups, veg and sauces were mediocre but lacked flavour. Some seasoning and creativity would have been a great addition. The service was average/a little brisk, with lots of emphasis on upselling and questioning our order choices which felt forceful and a little disrespectful. The view is nice enough and staff did try to be friendly at times, e.g. bringing us a digestif to make up for mistakes throughout our order. A decideldly average experience.

    Great Restaurant, very friendly attentive staff, wide varied menu with the addition of “Special of the Day” even during Covid the restaurant is busy, so I would suggest booking first.

    This time we had quite a disappointing experience. 3 different staff members asked us separately if we already placed the order, then we had to hand wave them to order deserts and remind of our drinks that were not coming. Then the same to get the bill, which did not include the fork discount. Overall they became too popular and don't care too much when it gets crowded.

    This was our second visit and we were as pleased as the first time. The place has a constant stream of guests, despite the shortage of tourists currently. The Fork discount was applied with no problem, and made the meal a bargain.

    Very good restaurant but the fork discount is misleading, it does not apply to whole ala carte items like starters and deserts, only main dishes that are ala carte as well... Also only one vinho Verde in a seafood restaurant is a bit disappointing.

    It was the best restaurant I've been in Madeira so far. We came back for our farewell dinner because the food is amazing and the staff always made us feel welcome. I really recommend this place!

    We went here because of the recommendation by Michelin, especially for its traditional food. Since we have family on the island we went to many restaurants for traditional food and this one is good. It was not the best we had, but good for a night out. We missed some typical flavours in the food. The place is a typical Madeira place, good location. The service is good, but the atmosphere could have been better. They didnt speak english that well and a bit of joking and fun was not on the table. Would have made the contact warmer.

    Booked a last-minute meal after a long and challenging walk. At 16:30, I was the only guest and had the entire terrace to myself. The waitress was extremely friendly, noted my food intolerance and gave recommendations accordingly. The grilled calamari was one of the best I have ever eaten, tender and full of flavor. Fish of the day was also tasty and came with 3 sides. I was more than satisfied with the meal and the best part was the impeccable and warm service.

    Our second time here within 3 weeks. Wanted to bring some friends to enjoy the great food and service of this fantastic restaurant. The second visit did not disappoint in any way. We will be back.

    The staff are so attentive and personable. The red mullet fish was quite possibly one of the best fish dishes I have had in a while. Excellent food and service at affordable prices!

    The best fish in town. Great selection of fresh fish that are perfectly cooked. You are being taken care of by a waitress that is highly professional yet creating cosy atmosphere. :)
