“Awesome meal, meat well cooked”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

It is a simple concept that works well in a very cosy and intimate building.


Just go up to the counter right away and point out what skewers or cuts of meat you like, and how you want it cooked. Then try sit down and order wine.

Lots of fun and relaxing dinner.

“Disappointing.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

The meat wasn't well prepared, the service was poor, the side dishes were dull. Price per value is clear, if you want meat, look somewhere else.

“Not quite as good as before”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This was the fifth visit over a period of a couple of years and we were generally disappointed with the quality of the meat and the service. The concept is great but maybe they are getting complacent.

“Meat, Meat and more Meat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013


This restaurant is for Karnivors- quality meat lovers.
At the street you might have trouble believing that this is a restaurant - in front of the city police headquarters and heart of sooty industrial area, but as soon as you enter, you will find yourself in the space of an old Arabic house, with vaulted , tall ceilings.
After the excellent appetizers, access to the butcher and choose the meat slice that that will be roasted according to your request.
Don't give up the excellent halvah parfait for dessert ..
