Great Steaks

If you are meat lover then you should visit this restaurant, we had absolutely superb rib eye steaks here. The service was also excellent.

Great ambience and service, lots of little extras, and best of all, most excellent rib eye steak, the price of which will leave Londoners shaking their heads in disbelief (i.e. remarkably inexpensive). Spanish guitarist on Friday nights - good idea to book. Lovely outside for summer dining.

Had heard lots about it, but never been. So we went with a couple of friends. Great staff, always around and attentive. Food was great, obviously had the steak which was tasty and cooked correctly. Its a little out side of Javea main town, but certainly worth the little trip.

We ended up here after the restaurant of our choice was closed. The service was fairly slow and the menu not explained well. We had the set menu and you end up with soup as well as your ordered starter which as previous reviews was like dish water, the starter I had was nice but too large for a starter,... More

We have only ever been here once before and decided to go again last night as we were unable to get booked into the restaurant we really wanted to go to. It was Easter Saturday so we didn't know if we would get a table without booking. When we got there, quite early, the bar was full with a group... More

The restaurant has a great feeling and supported with good friendly and efficient staff. We had set menu which was much enjoyed by all, my choice was Ox Tail, my first experience and glad to say a good choice.

Wonderful meal, excellent service, i cannot praise the resturant enough, my son had the Galician? Steak, he had this meal last year and has talked of it ever since, we went twice this holiday and we were not let down. Wonderful food you must go.

Have eaten here regularly and have never had a bad meal. We always eat off the "Menu del Noche" as it is great value, the price determined by the main course you choose, which generally is the T-bone steak for us, but you get three courses plus a consommé and sorbet. The meat is of the highest quality and we'd... More
