The setting of the restaurant is excellent. A view at the ocean, the food is good with good service. The biggest disappointment are the bright lights in the restaurant. If you look beyond this, you can have a good dinner.

Matching wines at good prices. We had barbecued ribs and fish with a delightful passion fruit sauce. Apple tart was good. Don't miss out. It's a must go to in an... More

This is the second time we (three adults, one toddler) have dined here. The food and service was truly wonderful on both occasions. If only we were staying longer in Funchal we would surely return.

We always visit this restaurant the staff are attentive without being intrusive. The food is always good altho' this time I tried the Salmon on the Stone and found that the fish had become a little dry towards the end of the meal. We've yet to try the dessert menu finding the starter & main course plenty for us.

Wonderful food and very attentive staff. The only reason I have not given 5 stars is that the TV was on in the restaurant, which was uneccesay as no one was watching it. Very reasonably priced.

We had a steak here last year and went back with friends to find still the most tender and delicious steak on the stone at most reasonable price and with an excellent and moderately priced wine list. The staff are friendly and attentive. Find it on the balcony above Pingo supermarket down at the Lido. Great views. The paired restaurant... More

We have already had 5 nights in Madeira and have visited many of the top restaurants advised on trip adviser, however this restaurant has to be the best so far. Very attentive and professional service, the food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. Don't be put off by the location.

We visited the O Chefe after reading the reviews on TA. The restaurant is very well laid out with the table settings very crisp and precise. We ordered a bottle of house white which was very pleasant and the mixed grill. The plate consisted of a piece of steak, a piece of chicken breast, a piece of pork and a... More
