The restaurant is discreetly positioned but once inside seemed bigger than expected. We went during the World Cup so the atmosphere was somewhat altered by that. All in all, the restaurant was very good. I had a mixed grill and it was great value and a joy to eat. The meat was very flavoursome and perfectly cooked. In all, the... More

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.
