I booked this steakhouse for my husband's birthday meal, not knowing that most people in Funchal were going to see the local carnival, which made it nice and quiet for us so we had lots of attention from Tony on our first visit! Food excellent, recommend the Steak on a Stone, and AvocadoPrawn salad. The only downside was the taxi... More

Jackie and Elaine would like to thank Tony and all his Staff for looking after us last week during our stay in Funchal. The food was reasonable, well presented and delicious. It was obvious that all the other customers thought so too as we saw the same faces each night and all the plates returned to the kitchen clean.

We have visited this restaurant both in it's old premises and this new one for the last 14 years. We are always welcomed like old friends and the food and service is excellent. We never go any where else as the choice is so good and we have never had a bad meal.

As a dedicated Trip Advisor enthusiast, before we try out any new hotel or restaurant, then your reviews are always browsed through to help us avoid making terrible mistakes. It was through the rankings for Funchal restaurants that we came across the O Chefe Steakhouse and Sea Basket! A bit of a mouthful for a name but it aptly described... More

We cooked superb fillet steak on the stone with great sea views. Very tender and the vegetables were cooked just right. One minor problem was that vegetables got cold whilst steak was cooking on stone. On a return visit I would ask for vegetables to be served later.

O Chefe has been a favourite when we visit for years. The premises have been revamped and are quietly stated with a relaxing atmosphere. If anything the food has improved which was very difficult to imagine. Whatever you decide to eat you will be amazed at the quality. Dealt very well with my wife's Gluten Inolerance and she never had... More
