Meat lovers only

If you like good quality steak, cooked exactly as you request - go here. We are real steak lovers and wary always of what we are going to get so tend to only order steak in a steak restaurant rather than a restaurant that does a bit of everything - and we got this one right.

Sat outside, really needed to as it was 30 degs. Very friendly lady serving us from start to finish, a real asset to La Portena. She explained the menu and gave great advise. My black pudding and sausage starter was simple but very tasty. The steaks were very well cooked and tasted lovely. The salad and chips made a great... More

Visited twice with family and friends during a two week stay. Superb, great atmosphere and very welcoming. Very good steaks. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for. Wonderful selection of salads. My daughter who is a vegetarian loved this place. If you read the prices on the menu you should not complain about the cost. It speaks... More

The steak in this restaurant cannot be beaten. It's absolutely beautiful but the accompaniments leave a lot to be desired. The salads are boring and I haven't found one I liked! The main problem with this restaurant is the price. It's way overpriced and you have to be very careful not to be talked into "a better cut of meat"... More

Great steaks! Came here with my boyfriend based on TripAdvisor reviews and I'm so glad we did. Steak was delicious and the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes. I'd recommend the cheese and olive empanada, amazing! I then had the rib eye steak and my boyfriend had the fillet. Our only complaint would be that the steaks... More

We first discovered this place in February when staying in Puerto Calero and gave it a go based on Trip Advisor reviews... Aren't we glad we did because it really is something special! So much so that even when staying in Puerto del Carmen in April, we made the taxi journey over to have a meal. It goes without saying... More

What a wonderful choice of meats and salads. We always want to try as much as possible different restaurants, wherever we go, so it's exceptional we 2 times go to the same restaurant. Because of the fantastic food and the great service we went back and i even ate the same: the flank steak was so full of flavour and... More

The hostess was utterly charming. The food and drink delicious. Its expensive but worth every penny. We would have gone back every night if we could have afforded it!
