Description: 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.

I have eaten here on several occasions and can't fault this place. Pizzas are just the way i like them (thick base and crust). I go to Madeira on business nearly every month and make my visit to papa manuel everytime. Makes tasty pastas. Their lasagne is very good and comes very hot. Has a nice big esplanade which can get a bit chilly at times because the restaurant is located near the sea but its great during the summer. Prices are good for the location.

We were staying in a nearby hotel and chose this because of its position. We ate here twice- both times had a table nearest the sea and could see/hear the waves. 2 of our group had pizzas which they found too oily on the first visit. On second visit we all had tuna or espada fish mains which were v. good- you could choose between chips, pasta or milo frito (my favourite) with salad or veg. Not particularly inexpensive but portions were very large. Beers and wine by the glass were very reasonable. Much more atmosphere on weekend visit as it is very popular with Madeirans so service was slower which was fine by us, on the weekday evening it was quiet as it was early Dec. They are open until 2am!

Huge portions so choose the smaller option or share a big one! The restaurant is a short stroll from the Pestana Grand hotel. There was a great atmosphere on all our visits.

Looking for a casual dinner in the Centromar/Forum area of Funchal, the restaurant easily fit our evening. We were greeted at the table with a complimentary drink (local rum punch). After reviewing the extensive menu, we chose a starter and pizza.
We stuck with a simple pizza that we were used to instead of trying some local toppings; multiple pizzas had fish as a topping. You can also chose your own toppings in addition to the 30 or so options on the menu. Pasta selections and salads are available too.
Wine selection is limited, but the menu has cocktails and soft drinks as well. A few local families were at the restaurant and others were picking up orders to go...if the locals like it, you need to try it.
Four separate locations in Funchal.

We really enjoyed the pizzas and the seafront location. Drinks at the companion bar a good value too.
