This unusual and interesting restaurant is situated in St John’ street in Gardens and is run and managed entirely by a team of outstanding chefs who love to connect with the customer. The delectable food is freshly prepared in an open plan area and although the daily choices are limited- everything on the plate is free range, cooked on the grill, generous in quantity and delightful in appearance. The restaurant opens at 12 noon and closes at 9pm from Monday to Friday with the kitchen closing at 8pm.


The venue is very open plan with lots of light, minimal décor, practical wooden tables with friendly chefs wondering around. One orders at the front desk, after pursuing the day’s options, on an iPad. Payment may be made when ordering or at the end of the meal. The meal arrives quickly so there’s no wasted time while placing orders or dealing with waitrons. There’s a lively atmosphere and clients can hear and see what’s going on in the kitchen at all times. There are no bookings taken at CHEFS so one just arrives, chooses the meals and selects a table.


Each day the menu changes and there are always 3 options – one meat, one seafood and one vegetarian dish. Meals are served in trays. There is also a dessert option on offer. CHEFS offer a choice of red, white or rose wine with meals and beer on tap. Filtered still or sparkling water are offered with all meals.
