Having just returned from two weeks in Madeira and many visits to O Chefs steakhouse, have to say we have never been disappointed with our meals. Steaks great so is fish and so much to choose from. Sometimes have to wait a while for food but the wine and ambience make up for this. Will see you again in September... More

Came here as a group of 4 for my husband's 70th birthday. On arrival there was a bottle of sparkling wine and canapes on the table compliments of the house. We had a wonderful sea view table and Tony (the owner) and his team certainly looked after us that night. I have eaten here previously but return because of the... More

However I think we’re being honest in saying that we were slightly disappointed. On both occasions the main restaurant was full both... More

This is a small restaurant with a great view over looking the sea the food is of a very high standard with a very limited wine list( I have been assured this is being addressed.) This is a restaurant that you need to allow time for I think that due to their continuing success sometimes you appear to have wait... More

The staff were frendly attentive and because the portion was large we had leftovers. At the end of meal chef asked us if we were happy as we hadnt eaten it all. We... More
