“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

A very serviceminded and cheerful staff serves delicious courses and makes you feel at home :-) I had the most tender meat there I have ever tasted, with a very good port sauce. We were also surprised with a selection of their meats along with 6 different sauces as an apetizer. Simply delicious! We will come back someday!

“Excellent Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We were a family of 5 and treated with style.

Complementary aperitif, taster etc. Greeted by co-owner Esteban, a gentleman.

In two weeks on the island our best meal by far.

Meal for 2 adults & 3 children, 3 courses with wine came to €150 and worth every penny.

Compliments to the staff -- all attentive, pleasant and cheerful.

Heartily recommend, particularly the fillet steak au poivre.

“Best steak I've ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Was greeted very warmly, was seated to a very nice table and lowered a shutter so my partner could be out of the sun. Staff were very nice and attentive. Looked at prices first and thought is a little deer but when you have there food you get more than your money's worth. I recommend a grilled fillet steak to anyone, this is the best steak I have ever had in my life and I have had a lot. Anyone one that wants great food and loves there steaks this is the place to go.

“Excellent quality sizeable steaks. They strive to excel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We went for dinner and were warmly greeted and seated. The tables were set with linen tablecloths and serviettes.

We were given a complimentary welcome drink of white wine mixed with cava and also a free small steak skewer. We were later given a complimentary fruit drink between starter and main courses.

We ordered Chorizo and Manchego Cheese half racion for starters followed by fillet steaks. The steaks were excellent quality, very sizeable (we struggled to finish them) and cooked exactly as ordered - rare and well done with a pimienta sauce. They were accompanied by handcut french fries and salads.

The steaks cost €16.95 and €17.95 - excellent value as we we would expect to pay considerably more for the quality and quantity. We had a very good bottle of wine for €18.95.

We were served by several waiters - all of whom were very personable, charming and provided excellent service. The whole experience was excellent.

“Good meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Really enjoyed our meal here was a good choice on the menu which is a meat lovers feast. We never ordered starters but we still received a skewer of beef cube and green pepper it was a nice taste of what was to come. We had the fillet steak with pepper sauce and was lovely and a nice beefy pepper sauce. Would definitely eat here again when we visit the island.
