We have been here before and are familiar with the formula! The service is very friendly, welcoming and attentive. Most guests seem to arrive at once so main course food service can be a little slow. You are warned of this when you arrive!! The food is great however which is the main reason for coming alongside the friendly staff.... More

We came across this place while out walking during the early evening. It was deserted when we came in but soon filled up and we now know why. Good service and excellent food, we went for the filet steak and tournedos both were very good. Most surprising for us was the value for money. If you are in the area,... More

We went over to this restaurant from our apartment hotel as it is close by and we were looking for somewhere after our welcome cocktails. It was a busy evening so service was a little slow as lots of people arrived at the same time. When it came the beef espetada was tender and well cooked and the chicken was... More

I've been lucky enough to eat in many good restaurants over the years - for food and service, this is amongst the best. Espatada a Chefe was great but Steak on a Stone was superb - highest quality ingredients allowed to speak for themselves. Not flashy in terms of ambience or location but truly great food and a warm welcome.... More

This restaurant offers excellent fish and meat dishes at a good price. But for any vegetarians, like many places in Madeira, the choice is a little limited. But that aside this is a very good restaurant.

I went to O Chefe with my family and we all really enjoyed our meal, all the meat was tender and good well and the fish was cooked to perfection. For drinks we had wine ( matus rosé ) it was very palatable and crisp. Our main waiter, Tony, was extremely kind and made sure that we were all happy... More

We ate there last week. Price/Quality is very good. Very friendly personnel. Nice sea-sight views. The French fries are almost Belgian quality :-) A good experience.

We would not have gone to this restaurant if we hadn't seen the great reviews on trip advisor. It is above a shopping center and from the outside nothing special. As soon as you walk in you realise you have misjudged this place. The service was great and the food was superb. I had red snapper, which was cooked to... More
