Great food and attentive staff. Try the steak-on-the-stone..the best steak I have ever tasted. A little cramped outside on the balcony and the food more than makes up for the view overlooking the supermarket car park.

Over my four holidays in Madeira there has not been one time of going to Chefe for dinner that I have not enjoyed. Love the food and the staff provide great customer service. Steak on the Stone is a personal favourite. I also like their homemade desserts. Service is not particularly quick but it is efficient. I also feel a... More

We visited this resturaunt twice during our week stay in Lido as it came highly recommended by a friend. We thoroughly enjoyed our nights out here. Our second meal we had steak on the stone and salmon on the stone - absolutely delicious. Will highly recommend this resturaunt to anyone visiting Lido.

He is famous for his steaks. Some years ago his restaurant, in the middle of a shopping mall, with no view at all, was constantly full and overbooked. Quality of the meat, fish, desserts (try the passion fruit mousse). But now recently he moved outside, you now sit on top of the shopping mall overlooking the bay of funchal, marvelous!... More

Ate here twice during our week long stay in Funchal. We even chose this place for our meal on our last evening. The restaurant is located above a supermarket and a pleasant sea view is visible beyond the car park below. Do not let this put you off unless you aim to impress your partner during a romantic evening out.... More

Although a decent meal, nothing special and seemed over priced. Maybe we ordered the wrong thing. Service was good, but the view over the supermarket car park left a bit to be desired!There are nicer places in Funchal.

Went along with two daughters and husband and was very pleasantly surprised. My 8 year old chose steak on the stone and a good sized piece of steak was given to her. I ordered salmon on the stone and it was wonderful. Spotlessly clean, lovely views of the sea. you wont be disappointed

Best restaurant on the island. Fact. I have been to this restaurant for many years an it never falters, the owner and staff are wonderful and the restaurant itself is fantastic. The food is amazing, all fresh with fantastic flavour with amazing value for money. You must go here and something I must stress! Eat the chocolate cake for dessert... More
