We have been visiting Madeira for some six years and always manage to fit this restaurant into our itinerary. We both selected the steak cooked on a stone. Very tender and most enjoyable. Followed by the chocolate mousse - a must. Service as ever was very good. Excellent meal, great value and a most enjoyable evening.

Great food and a nice view by the sea! The service was from another planet(in a positive way, that is) : we came here between lunch and dinner time so the chef was not present. The owner of the place saved our day by cooking us food anyway! <3

This lovely restaurant was just down the road from our hotel. Made to feel very welcome when we arrived and allowed to choose our table. Food was delicious and waiters were very pleasant.

We had been going to Funchal for a couple of years before we ventured to try O Chefe. Well a restaurant above a supermarket does not immediately fill you with confidence but we listened to some recommendations and are we glad we did. On our latest visit we were able to dine on three occasions the first time on our... More

You are never disappointed at O'Chefes. The meals are excellent and the staff attentive without being in your face. How they remember all the regulars who return year after year I don't know but they always place you. Tony, Helio and their staff do go that bit extra to help their customers. AS my wife is a Coeliac, they ensure... More

Came here upon recommendation as we were told the food is superb. This is true the food was excellent if a little on the pricy side! We had grilled limpets for starters, fillet steak cooked on the stone, and 1 desert of crepes. Half a bottle of house white and a bottle of sparkling mineral water. No coffees and a... More
