This has grown into quite a large restaurant. Nicely done out. Very friendly service and good food with plenty of choice. Only complaint was that it is busy and service seems very slow.

Had dinner here 3 times in last couple of weeks. We have been eating here on many occasions over previous years and it never fails to disappoint. Excellent steaks perfectly cooked and with good fresh salad and chips. The scabbard fish was also cooked to perfection and of excellent quality. The soup and limpet starters were both excellent and reasonably... More

After reading previous reviews we were looking forward to our meal at O Chefe two had steak on the bone which they said was good but they had eaten better, two had pork which was tough and luckily had ordered a mushroom sauce which helped the dryness of the meal, one had Espada which looked and tasted lovely, all the...

Visited here beginning of September. We had fillet steak on the stone which was succulent and delicious and Espada with prawn sauce which was very tasty. My husband had home made chocolate mousse which was delicious and lots of it. The restaurant is situated over a supermarket car park which for me spoilt the ambience when you have people with...

We were in Funchal for 11 nights and this was the only restaurant we went back to. Don't be put off by the location over a shopping centre, the views are good and the food and staff make up for the car park. The prawn starter is amazing, not sure if I can replicate it at home but I will... More

One of the best meals I have ever had. Amazing steak on a stone. The most tender meat you can imagine. Nice outdoor seating, good atmosphere and good service. Excellent!

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.
