Still as good as I remembered

I hadn't been here for several years and heard it had changed hands but although the menu has varied a little, the quality of the food is just as good as always. I always have the steak in pepper sauce and the quality of the meat is excellent. The steak was cooked to perfection too. There is a... read more

It is a bit difficult to find, but when you get there it is worth the looking! Very nice typical Spanish restaurant with regular shows in the summer and different plates on the menu. It is a very nice seated area with a pond with turtles in the middle of the terrace. Worth visiting while in the area. And well... More

The service started off really well, but as the meal wore on it got slower and slower.... More

Having visited every year for the last twenty eight years last Friday night whilst the entertainment was great the food disappointed. We always have the same slow cooked shoulder of lamb. It had not been cooked as well as it is usually and there were bits too fatty. There were wasps which staff were unable to deal with and an... More

Well worth the short drive and set in open land up a small hill- sets the scene for something a little different- Semi outside seating around an ornamental pond - really great staff and fantastic Spanish food and wines- Great steaks and a fantastic paella! There's plenty of space for the kids and a play area just down from the... More

When we first visited this place in 1999/2000 it was THE place to be. Now 15 years later it is only a shadow of the past. The Restaurant has been modernized inside and out, BUT the food has not ! The Steak was uneatable, full of grizzle and overcooked to what I ordered. I returned the Steak and ended up... More
