Great Steak at a great price including wine! worth a visit if you like your meat! Staff could be a little better trained but they have been there for years so it is understandable

Based on the reviews, we were expecting something quite special - but the whole experience was rather disappointing. The restaurant was reasonably busy but we were not made to feel very welcome. A previous reviewer used the word "surly" to describe the staff, and that was a good description. Everything is very efficient, but rather clinical - no warmth or... More

Really great steaks, with perfectly cooked chips. The best steak I've eaten for a long time and really great value too. The desserts were brilliant too, the best desserts we had during our whole two week holiday. A must for food lovers.

Amazing steaks and meat grill. Nice grilled fish. Great value nice staff. Informal and fun, our toddler had a little wander round looked after by the staff. You can see the steaks hanging in the glass refrigerator in the window. Proper charcoal grill. Some of the best steaks you will ever get. Fantastic salads for starters. I could go on.... More

The entrecote was very well value, the pepper steak was not a big hit. The wine they recommended (Rioja) was not amazing, but all are we diffrent. The price on aöö courses here are really a bargin. You won't find cheaper and better meat. The wiev is nice to, not amazing but a bit fun.

After reading that the waiters say stuff like "I keep the wine list in my head" I just knew I needed to try this place! Our food was good. The service was good. The waiters are all over the place and I never needed to wait for anything. But the tables are almost on top of each other. I had... More

while staying across the road at the Riu Papyas we decided to try El Carreton as it always seemed a lively restaurant. They did not disappoint at all, myself with a really tasty sirloin steak in peppercorn sauce and my wife an excellent fillet. OK no wine list on offer but you can get a glass of wine with your...
