oh dear - when you put steakhouse above the door, you better make sure you know how to cook a steak. My friend did better a couple of nights later. I do better pretty much every week on my BBQ. We ordered the Wagyu - one of the more expensive versions. My girlfriend never leaves steak. She loves it. And... More

Visited here recently during the world cup. I had a Wagyu steak and it was tasty, one of the best steaks I have had. The side dish selection was not great but they did taste good. I thought for what we got, it was a bit expensive; there are other restaurants that serve exactly the same for less. I would... More

My Husband arranged the evening a birthday surprise, which was spoiled by the restaurant telephoning while we were driving there and asking us if we were still coming. The call was taken on hands-free speakers as my husband was driving. The food was not very hot and the 3 times fried chips were very poor. We didn't stop for a... More

Small and intimate place. The steak was great. I ordered "Blackmore 100% Fullblood Wagyu Beef" and it was very good. However, the portion is so small (100 g) that I ordered twice the size! The "Loaded Baked Potato soup" was good. The "Curried Black Cod,“ as a starter, was a disappointment, a bad choice and very small quantity. Service was... More

Very small restaurant. The food is of excellent quality, probably some of the best steak I've eaten in the Middle East. However, the portion sizes of the sides are just harsh - very small and an almost thimble-sized portion of mash just doesn't cut it. Increase the sizes 50% of the sides and this would have been a 5/5. Service... More

Had dinner here recently, mainly prompted by reviews. On the positive, the service was very good, staff couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. Starter was lovely. Liked the decor in the restaurant. Lovely bottle of red wine. However the evening was let down by the following points. Don't know if it was the acoustics in the restaurant or where... More

Nice set up. We were there for dinner after business meeting. Venue is nice and welcome is warm. The menu is correct with all the various meet cuts and quality you would expect from a steakhouse. Wine selection is good. One little disappointment: i am a rare meet lover. I have specifically requested my cut "blue" and any decent steakhouse... More
