We loved the menu - if you are after some of the best steak you will have ever eaten then come here! Be sure to book or get here early. Also the portions were very generous, but there is nothing wrong with that! Loved the whole experience, if you in the area it is worth a visit.

Visited this restaurant twice during our stay in Javea as the setting on the outside covered terrace was beautiful. Staff dressed the part with leather "chaps". The steaks melted in the mouth and food presented well. We were given a sorbet palate refresher as an extra course which was lovely and fruity and cool. A nice touch. Located on the... More

This restaurant is hit & miss when it comes to service but on this occasion not only did we get good service we also had amazing sirloin steaks! Melt in the mouth, juicy and tender with tons of flavour! The way it's served with the scrummy baked potato and the grilled veg is also spot on. The fact the already... More

This was my second visit having had Christmas Day lunch, here. The steaks really are delicious. The portions are most generous and come with a wonderful medley of vegetables which you don't always get in Spanish restaurants. I have a hearty appetite but really struggled to eat all my food. However, I got there!

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.
