Reviewed 8 June 2017

We have been coming to Madeira for many years now and this restaurant is always the first one we head to. We were only there for one week but we visited the restaurant twice. The pizzas are so tasty and delicious, the size of the pizzas are huge and are definitely made for sharing. We have also had pasta dishes which are very good. As soon as you are seated you are given a glass of poncho and olives to nibble on. Service is very efficient, the restaurant is always busy and the waiters are very friendly and always buzzing about. We like the fact that this is clearly a favourite with the locals. The meal is finished off with a complimentary liquor. The only downside is the the seats are not very comfortable, but the food certainly makes up for it. It is a small restaurant but in our opinion the best Papa Manuel restaurant. Looking forward to our next visit.

The place is loved by locals and has good prices. Pizza is also good compare to other places in Madeira. It is something in between Italian and American pizza, so start with sharing and not order a normal one for yourself only if you do not eat a lot.

This restaurant was recommended to us as a great restaurant for pizza. We ordered pizza and salads and enjoyed them on the patio. The atmosphere was friendly and casual.

At the base of our flat was a Papa Manuel pizza shop. We had read that this was the best pizza in Madeira. There are a few of these pizzarias in the Funchal area and we were hoping that this was true for all (especially ours).

We were not disappointed with the medium sized Bella Napolli (10.90 euro) or the Popeye (10.40 euro) pizzas. Both pizzas would stand up to the best in other parts of the world. On another occasion, we had their chicken and it was also very good.

If we are back in this area, we will definitely return.

This is a great family restaurant with hospitable staff, great pizza and a friendly atmosphere.

When me and my friends arrived here they put the football on for us and poured us very generous amounts of vodka.

You are spoilt for choice when choosing your pizza and toppings although I think going classic is best, as after trying a few their margarita was simply delicious.

They have attempted to go for some sort of Saloon theme at the bar and not quite pulled it off however it doesn't take away from the charm of the place.

We will be back in the summer!
