Great food, excellent menu and service. Unusual location but well worth the visit. Enjoyed a seafood platter for two with bream, salmon, red snapper and prawns. Delightful. Always a warm welcome.

The first thing to note about O Chefe is the service. One of our waiters, an elderly gent, is possible the politest person I've ever met, and his dedication to his craft was impressive. The other waiter was impressive too showing supreme calm in the...More

HI there. It’s actually quite a long way from the cr7 hotel and probably not walkable but well worth making a trip to it as the food is really good. By taxi it would probably cost you about 5-7 euros to get there. Hope this... More
