Best meal by far on our trip- the hype over the steak on the stone so true it delicious, garlic a bread is divine and choc mouse was delicious but impossible. Tony our waiter a pure charm. Going back for our last nite that's how much we loved it.

Whenever we are in Madeira we return to this restaurant. Took us a few years to find it so we are now making up for lost time! Food is excellent and cooked to order. We tend to eat the picanha and chicken and this trip we tried the limpets for the first time. They were so good we went back... More

There was a genuine warmth in the welcome , for an real treat try the steak on a stone and cook it yourself . We have never been disappointed and the portions are a spot on . A happy vibe flows through the restaurant , good food , good wine and excellent service.

Took my mum out for dinner tonight, after being recommended by the Pestanna book, that this was the best steak ever. We had a starter, it's really not required, as when the steak comes, it really is the best steak ever. Restaurant very clean and presentable, service was excellent, very attentive.

The restaurant doesn't look so good as it is. The personnel was extremely friendly and the service was great. The best part of the dinner was steak on the stone. My wife took fish on the stone and it was also very good. But the steak: Big bite of excellent steak that didn't need anything else. I don´t remember that... More

This was our tenth trip to Madeira. On the first we were fortunate to be directed to O'Chefe's. It has since become our favourite. The staff welcome you like long lost friends, The service is excellent and the food prepared as you wish. As a bonus, their sauces are Gluten Free so my wife can enjoy them. This year, she... More

Do not be put off by the appearance of this restaurant and its location above the supermarket. The service is excellent and the food is always reliably delicious. Reservations are advised as it is popular with those of us making repeat visits! The steaks are really tasty and tender and all the other traditional Madeira favourites do not disappoint. There...

Found this restaurant last year, and vowed to come back this year. We did, and were not disappointed. All the traditional dishes are on offer, but the food is all excellent. The steak on the stone is high quality food not to be missed. Last year we reserved a table outside on the balcony as the weather was hot. This... More

We always look forward to returning to this restaurant. Unlike others it is fully lit and looks a bit like a cafe but don't be fooled, the food and welcome is the best! As always I have Granny 's fish pie ( not called that but they know what you mean). It is delicious and something you won't get anywhere... More
