Chef is a minor character in Guest House Paradiso. He is played by Steven O'Donnell. In the film, Chef has a violent rant at Richie for not paying his wages, and is met with a threat from Richie that he will have his Visa revoked and have him deported back to Romania. Chef subsequently retires to the kitchen and goes on an eating binge, throwing whatever he can't eat down the waste disposal leaving the hotel without anything to feed the guests. Chef and Eddie do not get on well, and have a fight in the kitchen which results in, presumably, serious injury or death on Chef's part. He is never seen again after the fight, in which Eddie describes how he "hit himself on the head with a frying pan seventeen times..."
