These guys know how to cook a steak. Possibly the best rib eye I've eaten outside the U.S.! Cooked on an open griddle with the best quality meat in Bonn. It's definately a place to return to. I just hope it is sooner rather than later.

The food is great and the restaurant takes you out of your routines for a few hours. Since the restaurant is in a basement, I prefer to come in the winter. The decoration/design matches the theme of the restaurant perfectly and adds to a great overall experience.

The steaks are fine argentinian beef - perfectly grilled and served at the same time at the table. Service is sometimes little bit slow but very friendly. The atmosphere in the restaurant located in the buildings basement is cosy but noisy. Even with your clothes smelling from smoke of the grill and the prices are little above average the steaks...

They have a wide array of steaks and side dishes along withe some great wines! The steak will melt in your mouth, and the atmosphere is great! I would advise... More

This is the first steakhouse I tried in Bonn, in 2003. The steak in one word... orgasmic! And the taste is still so good up until now. I always recommend this place. A bit pricy but well worth it. The place is in the keller and is small but comfortable. You better make a reservation especially on weekends and holidays.

I think this place serves the best steak available in Europe. I worked in Bonn for 10 months and was taken to this restaurant as my "welcome to the company" dinner. I loved it so much that I went here for a rib-eye steak every week during my time in Bonn. The owner Vicente is a charming host and always... More

Not located in the Center of Bonn - you need a half hour walk from the railwaystation. You can also travel by bus. The entrance is difficult to find (only one door at the corner of the street) because the actual restaurant is in the basement of the building. Staff is very friendly. Obviously, many steak choices by type and... More

I went to El Tarascon with my family because we gathered all in Bonn for a special occasion and it was an amazing experience. Food was great. I used to live in the States where there's plenty of great steakhouses, and I felt home :) Besides this, something really touched me. Regardless the little space they had, the manager (or... More
