Lovely meal - would definitely return!

Great service & beautiful food. Two steaks had to be returned for a bit more cooking! It was done quickly & was no problem. The other two steaks were cooked just perfectly. Would thoroughly recommend. (Just wish it had a No Smoking policy)

Just "fell" in from the street, chose a chef´s recommended entrecote, and what a surprise! Lovely tender meat, a lot of it! Returned another day, still great food, but service must be vastly improved, very slow and you have to request the bill multiple times!

Be careful, full of african ladies trying to sell you their cheap bracelet, and scammers, trying to make you win tickets, which sends you to Puerto Rico Club with hard sell of borderline/fake timeshare. Be on the look out for all these scams. Also full of looky looky men trying to sell you cheap... More

Small restaurant in the strip by beach, ate here three times and had good experience each time. Friendly service, reasonable prices. Very nice steaks, kebabs and grilled chicken breast. Nice atmosphere. Better than others we tried along this strip well worth visit

Lovely sea view, friendly staff and steaks to die for! Large portions though so don't have a starter unless you are really hungry!
