“Great Steak, Lovely Setting, Awesome Staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We ordered steak (each got a different cut, both great) and grilled vegetables and it was delicious. The staff was extremely friendly, and among the best we encountered in Spain. The steak quality is on par with any good steakhouse in the states. Last but not least, sitting outside at twighlight next to the cathedral made for an amazing setting for dinner. We highly recommend!

“Great grilled steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

If you like a good piece of grilled meat, go to this restaurant near the old town hall. Very tasteful Spanish beef, carefully grilled on oak wood. They also have a variety of high quality tapas. Friendly service.

“Amazing service and great local ingredients”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Visited as a family for dinner. Restaurant was about 20% full. The staff were amazingly friendly and accomodating. They speak perfect english and coped with our sketchy spanish with great patience.

The food looks terrible on the menu with photo's but the taste is great. Very typical andalucian food with the majority of ingredients locally sourced. The chorizo tapa and the pepper salad were both great. The pork skewers were lightly spiced and cooked perfectly. The chef came out to discuss one of our daughter's food allergies and was hugely accommodating. All sauces are made from scratch and they were happy to make changes to cope with gluten/dairy etc free.

Food prep was a little slow, but the quality of the ingredients made up for it. Would definitely visit again.

“Nothing spectacular”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

We visited this restaurant for my husbands birthday. Overall the food was for me average. It was a Saturday night and we and another couple were the only ones eating in the restaurant. My daughter had a pizza which was out of a packet, not freshly made. My husband and I shared a main course which was for two people. Different selections of meats and potato. I didn't like the attitude of the waiter. He was obviously a head waiter and he kept picking on a junior member of staff or that's what appeared to be going on. I won't be going back.

“Good food and friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Highly recommended! The food was excellent and the service very friendly and fast. Definitely a menu for carnivores: we greatly enjoyed the baby goat chops ("It's baby goat, Lisa, not A baby goat!") and the pork skewer.
