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.

We got our hotel to make a reservation for us, and that worked perfect. Our table was ready for us, and we had a great experiance from the first minute there. Very good food, and great wine. The sidedishes were also very good! The owner came over to our table serveral times and made us feel very welcome. The best... More

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

A good argentinian restaurant with simple staples focussing heavily on beef. Service was friendly and informal - almost a family run feel to it - made for a pleasant experience. Food was good - simple, but well cooked. I had a chili con carne soup starter, which was nice and spicy, and a filet steak cooked rare (correctly) which was... More

We went there with a party of four on a Friday night with reservation. The food was ok but with the waitresses behaving more like wardens (do not expect smiles), the air being very smoky and the room located in the basement and totally cramped with tables the whole atmosphere was tight and unfriendly. I don't quite understand the fuss... More
