Fabulous steak on a stone

Enormous chunk of fillet steak, cooked to our liking on a hot stone. Absolute heaven. Staff were very friendly and the whole experience was very pleasant. We will return!

First time here, what a gem of a restaurant!! 4 of us rocked up, seated immediately inside, the Mateus arrived soon after! One had filet steak cooked at the table on a hot stone, 2 had chicken curry - all amazing! Great service, great food all at reasonable price.

The staff were very polite and friendly offering advice on a selection of dishes on offer. The food was... More
