“Good steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

Don't mind paying for good quality food, but was a little disappointed when charged for bread brought to the table which we did not ask for ... A little cheeky! Good quality food, too much fuss from the staff but that is pretty much the same in the area so don't let that put you off.

“Poor!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Had really high expectations due to grand setting and aesthetics.

When we booked we got told to expect the best steak we had ever eaten far better than in England.

Unfortunately not the case at all! One of the worst steaks I've eaten in years - tough as old leather and it took a whole lot of chewing! Side orders were barely warm upon arrival also.

Service really poor eventually managed to get additional drinks!

Premium prices low quality product.

“Was expecting more!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

We booked into this restaurant after reading the menu and talking to one of the waiters, he was very passionate about the quality of the food, the atmosphere in the Restaurant and overall really sold it to us.

However we did feel disappointed at the poor quality of the steak, we ordered fillet and it didn't live up to its billing! The Restaurant is very nice looking - we were recommended to sit outside which was cooler, but the white plastic patio furniture let it down.

Overall I wouldn't rush back.

“Good but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

Location. Excellent; great views of the beach and surrounding areas.
Service. Average; we didn't eat during a particularly busy period, however the waiters were almost going through the motions. From witnessing other tables service, it would appear that those who speak Spanish as a first language benefit from a more attentive service.
Food and drink. Good; starters were ok nothing fancy, main courses were better - simple. It is a steak restaurant and the steak was therefore good, but I have had better. Good variety of drinks.
Atmosphere. Lacking.
Price. Competitive for the area.
Summary. A restaurant that on first impressions promises everything, but by the end of the meal I was left underwhelmed. It is missing something which is a shame as the potential is there.

“great meal and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We come here as we are true carnivores and for our 1st wedding anniversary.... This Grill restaurant looked great from the outside, so we thought we would treat ourselves. First impressions, interior was nice,the waiting staff were polite and friendly. We reserved a table for 730pm which I might add was not needed. But we had a choice where we wanted to sit outside on the terrace or indoors, we chose indoors (as it was still hot outside) we sat by the window which had a great sea view. We ordered Chateaubriand for 2 to share, roughly 40e for the dish...as we are steak-on-the-stone fans, we were overjoyed to see the succulent slices of fillet steak and a small hot plate for us to 'sizzle' our steak to our preference with the sauce it was perfect. With main course, 3 sides, bottle of wine, water, dessert to share and a coffee and 1 very large JD the bill was around 96e. Wine list was great and you get help ordering a nice wine without being told to go for an expensive one too! I could not fault the food it was the best food we have tasted and we were glad we come here for our special evening.
Its non smoking but there is a table you can relax at outside on the terrace if the urge arises to smoke. Ps smart casual dress no need for suit or tie!
Also, big thanks to TONY who waited on us all evening and made our experience more enjoyable with his great sense of humour.
