“Passionate About Steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

I tried this place as a result of reviews and it's great. They are fanatical about the menu they offer and it's costly but not expensive. It's on my list of places to go. Great food and service.

“Best steak we have ever had !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

We plumped for a random night away and then looked on trip advisor for a reasonable restaurant.
We stumbled across this establishment! WOW
We loved it the service was impeccable explaining the menu regarding the steak options - I realise this may seem simple but it's not merely steak and how ud like it cooked!

The food was delivered at good speed and very well cooked. It seemed that the ingredients were superior and then cooked very well.

My boyfriend had the fillet steak and it melted in your mouth. I had the rib eye with peppercorns and again it was amazingly tasty.

We ordered a side salad, tomato and onion salad and sweet potato chips - these were also very good - but we were glad we didn't order actual potato chips as you only need something light with these amazing meats.

I will try everything I can to get back here. I admit it is a special occasion requirement as it's not "chain" prices but well worth it

“Superb Steaks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Went here after leaving a booking late for a Haksmoor, and being unable to get a table. Really glad we did. Nice smallish restaurant set over 2 floors. Nice decor. All good. Good attentive service, help with the menu options and the wine list. Nice short wait for drinks and then starters. Some Aubergine and bread to nibble on before the starters came out.

Starters were good, not ground breaking, although a couple of our party had the BBQ'd king prawns and said they were superb. No complaints other than perhaps being a little pricey. (prawn starter was £15)

Steaks came out, cooked absolutely perfectly how we had requested. Most of us had the Ancho A La Pimienta Rib Eye. It was delicious. Thick, large and juicy, all the flavour of a rib eye, but almost fillet tender - Superb. Sides were a little uninspiring, but tasty none the less, some grilled vegetables, spinach, sweet potato chips, and potato chips. Again, the sides were perhaps a little pricey for what you got.

Wine list was extensive and of course focussed on Malbec, and blends of the Malbec grape. There was a wine to suit all budgets, and we pushed the boat out a little and had two stunners, which complemented our steaks perfectly.

Overall I loved this restaurant. The only reasons for not giving it 5/5 are the starters and sides were quite uninspiring, and quite expensive. But please don't let that put you off, go and have a big fat rib eye and a glass of Malbec, life's too short.
