Best steak ever

Excellent little restaurant. My wife loved the chicken and the steak was the best I've ever tasted. So good we went for a second visit!

We came across this restaurant by mistake when we walked too far down the street looking for somewhere to eat. It's definitely going out of your way to visit this little eatery as we had the best meal of our holiday here. Our chicken and steaks were so succulent and there was plentiful side dishes, we couldn't finish it all!... More

We've been coming to Madeira and this restaurant for years. We ate here four times during our two week vacation. Steak on the Stone is great but so are other things. My wife particularly likes the passionfruit mousse

Don't let the view of a car park or the fact this restaurant is over a super market put you off. Lovely food, extremely friendly and attentive waiters. We can definitely recommend the steak on the stone, one of nicest steaks I have ever had.

Were wandering along the promenade looking for a place to have dinner" got to the end of the stretch and was about to turn back to the nicer looking restaurants when we wash this one. It doesn't look that good from a distance as it is above the supermarket with a view of the car park..... Not that great, however... More

We always enjoy visiting O Chefe, it's very convenient to where we stay in Madeira and the staff are very accommodating. The boss, Tony, is a very humble and polite man and his son, Tony Jnr, has settled well into the business and does a good job. The food, prices and atmosphere are all very good. See you next year...

Had a good first night dinner here - it's a good fish and steak place. Locations not great (over looking a car park) but.....good staff and food make it all okay. Oh - and past the car park is the Sea.

We eat here 3 times on this trip, one lunch and 2 dinners, good food, nice friendly staff and great wines. Does get busy in the evening at weekend, so you may have to book, but its worth it.
