Just returned from this restaurant, superb. Steaks cooked on hot stones were delicious and great value for money.

“Quality steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

As this is a fairly new restaurant on the carihuela the reviews are obviously only now starting to filter through. We ate here only by chance as we were encouraged in by another diner whilst perusing the menu. We're so glad we did as it was a memorable meal. The hot rocks may appear gimmicky but if you're a steak lover you'll love the quality of the meat, cooked how you like it. It takes literally two or three seconds to cook each mouthful of meltingly tender beef due to the heat of the rock. Service was efficient and friendly and the bill was value for money. This restaurant deserves lots more reviews!

“Brilliant!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Great restaurant, friendly helpful staff, lovely clean areas, sea view..brilliant food!
They specialise in 'hot rocks', whereby you get meat and a hot rock, on which you cook your own! Had steaks and chicken, both lean and tender...will definately return next year!!

“Great new steak restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

A brand new Argentinian restaurant on Carihuela beach. Food was fantastic - when the raw steak arrived within 2 minutes or ordering I was a bit concerned. However, the unusual method of cooking soon changed all that. You cook the meat to your taste on a very hot granite block, which keeps hot until you have finished your meal. The wine was excellent and not expensive. The owner (Nancy) is always on hand and is extremely able and efficient. Went twice within a week! Go and try it.
