New favourite restaurant!

We saw this on TripAdvisor and thought we'd give it a go because of the good reviews and we weren't disappointed. We had limpets to start followed by steak and the stone and fillet steak with prawns - all were excellent, and with very reasonable prices. The location is good too but what really sets... read more

We read good reviews about O Chefe before coming. Her Indoors was not impressed by the arrival at a supermarket car park. However once seated outside looking at the sea and enjoying excellent food and the company of Tony and his team, she was converted. My fillet steak on a stone was exceptional - it must have been as we... More

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
