Lovely evening at the O Chief Steak House. Good food, we had the seafood platter which was delicious, lovely view of the sea, even though there is a car park below, I suppose it's how you view things, for us it was great. Staff really friendly and professional, especially Ellio, who understands customer service and first impressions.

We tried this place as a gamble as it didn't look appealing from the outside being on top of a car park but you soon forget it's even there as you have views of the sea and some of the friendliest staff going! We loved our visit so much that we came again the next day. Day 1: we both... More

We visited here to celebrate our daughter's birthday and our party consisted of 6 adults and 4 children. The food and the service was excellent and they certainly went "the extra mile" organising a cake with candles at very short notice. The steak on the stone was amazing so was the espada, chicken with bbq sauce and my sirloin with... More

Situated above a supermarket and looking over a car park you don't expect much. Prepare to be surprised. The food is excellent especially steak on the stone. Service is impeccable and prices are very reasonable, and with a glimpse of the sea. Always a favourite when we are in Madeira but this year started to need to book as it... More

Every year we say we have never had a bad meal in this family run restaurant and it's the same this year. As the name suggests they are adept at serving quality steaks or fish. We chose them for our first night and enjoyed pork €11.95 and fillet steak €14.95, which came with choices of jacket or chips, salad or... More

Decided to try here after reading the reviews on trip advisor, which read it sits on top of a supermarket, don't let this put you off it has lovely views out to sea, even if it sits next to a car park. On visiting I had a mixed grill which was lovely, but when I saw the wife's dish of... More

I had the sirlion steak which was delicious, my girlfriend had the mixed grill which was OK, but the specialties seem to be fish and steak. Service was OK if a little unengaged, but apart from that no complaints, would recommend paying a visit.

Visited with 2 hungry teenage boys and weren't disappointed with our choice of restaurant. Lovely views overlooking the ocean, very attentive staff and the service was about right. Food extremely tasty with plenty of choice. Will be going back again 😋
