Friendly staff, good food and good service (no long waiting time). In the weekend it is recommended to make reservations for dinner (which usually is a good sign !!!)

We dined in O Chefe on our visit to Madeira in 2015 and enjoyed it so much that on the day we returned in July 2016 our first job after unpacking was to book a table for our evening meal.!.We was so glad we booked the table as they was very busy with orders but the waiters worked their socks...

We eat at least once a year in O Chefe. It is a great mid-priced restaurant with tables outside or in doors. We now pick in doors to avoid the smokers. The espada fish is lovely, with banana or prawn sauce. Nice house wine and very friendly staff. The boiled veg that comes with the main courses is a bit... More

We had another truly wonderful meal here as a family of four. We came last year based on a recommendation by friends. Tony is completely charming and his food recommendations were spot on. Absolutely delicious, freshly cooked food. Beautiful flavours, especially the prawns done in the most stunning homemade sauce - what a winner!! Steak on the stone to die... More

Thank you to Tony the owner and the Team for a lovely meal tonight. His recommendations were spot on and the prawns my wife had were stunning and my steak on the stone was magnificent. The location undersells the quality of the food. Our only challenge - can we sneak in another meal here before we head home!

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
