Does exactly what it says on the tin. Great value for money and great service. For the price you really can't go wrong! They stick to what they know and do a great job of it!

I had been looking forward to a visit to this restaurant ever since it opened, what was there not to like? Steak and lobster are my two favourite things! The restaurant was completely empty so we already assumed we were in for a good visit as the chef would only have our food to focus on! Firstly we ordered a... More

Had the rib eye steak with unlimited fries and salad! Can't complain it was lovely, but ran out of chips, as only a small portion! Asked for some more, but had actually finished our meal before they arrived!!

Lunch with work colleagues. We chose to dine from lunch menu. Steak focacia was delicious. Can't wait to come back to try the dinner menu. All washed down with a glass of merlot. For such a simple concept, highly recommend!

Food was lovely and Paulo was a legend. Simplistic menu makes it easy to choose - either lobster or steak. Unlimited fries and salad too what more could you want?

A very simple menu, but I'm not complaining! you chose from between Steak or Lobster and then get unlimited Fries and Salad. You can add on any further sides and some sauce (we went for Olives and I went for Peppercorn for my Steak). The only problem we found was that the staff, although lovely, were a little slow. Our...
