The Papa Manuel is situated on the coast path at Porto Santa on the outskirts of Funchal. The restaurant was very busy on both occasions that we ate there and seems to be a favourite with the locals which is normally a good sign. There...More

Great pizza, good reasonable price. Well worth a visit. We got a table and prompt service at 9pm on a Wednesday. The place was full of locals which made it a must for us.

We've eaten here a few times and it's always been really popular and busy. The Madeira steak is lovely and so are the pizzas. Food is all reasonably priced at about €13 for steak and the view over the water is beautiful.

Not very impressed. Spaghetti carbonara and pizza were both tasteless. Such a shame as the first visit was ok. Was very busy but that shouldn't make any difference to the food.

Located in a tourist area with very nice gardens and parks around, has a fantastic view of the ocean. Their outdoor seating is quite pleasant. Turning the best part, the pizzas are the best on the island, plus pizzas have pasta, regional dishes of fish and meat as the "espetada regional". The service is fast and friendly employees always ready to do whatever it takes, even to clarify facts about the island.
