The restaurant is modern and large, seating is comfortable and as soon as you walk in, you can't miss the counter showing all the meat on offer. Steaks are enormous and very reasonable priced. we had the mistake before by having starters and ended up taking more than half the meat back home as we couldn't manage it all.. now... More

The food is good....when it arrives, but service is lacking. Meals are not delivered all together and if you ask for anything extra, you may get it and may not. It takes an eternity to get the waiters attention and then they are not attentive even then. Good food but painful service.

Love it here, very different to be able to view the meat on offer in a chiller cabinet as well as the seafood. Very spanish and plenty of seating which is quite modern. The bar area is fab. The menu is great with plenty to choose from it's not just a steak house but be prepared do not eat anything... More

Great place for meat lovers. Make sure you know the difference in the meat cuts but don't be afraid to ask the staff. Order a great bottle of wine and relax and enjoy the night. Book though and make a night of it. Small car park out the back.

Make sure you are hungry when visiting this restaurant. The steaks are huge(especially the t-bone and chuleta) but beware the thickness prevents the meat from being well done in the centre. 2 of our party had to send their's back for further cooking but do not let that put you off. The quality of the meat is first class and... More

If you want a big, succulent steak - this is your restaurant. The beef comes from the owner's own stock in Galicia and beef from this area is considered some of the best in Spain. When you enter the restaurant there are two counters - one with beef and other meat and one with fish. When we went in we... More

We visited on a November Sunday evening and were amazed how busy it was – clearly a testament to fantastic food and service Despite previous comments to the contrary , we found the table staff very friendly if you tried to interact with them – which of course is usually true anywhere The solomillo is to die for – and...

Our friends had posted pics of the meat here a year ago and ever since it was his ambition to eat the T-bone steak. We didn't book, struggled initially to find it (it has a large car park behind it just off the main road), and we like to eat early and it wasn't open! So we had a coffee... More

If you like steak or seafood this is a place to visit, if you like your steak blue or well done go here, try the T bone steak it must be of at least 30 ounces(2 kilos). When I go back I will try the seafood, the range on display is fantastic.
