“Food great, serve needs some work”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Ate here last week as a family with two teenage boys. The food was great, between us we had two steaks, one kebab, one pasta and some salad. Nice touch is the meat cuts are brought to the table for you to pick what you want and cooking was excellent. Service was a bit slow (the boys got pretty bored), but maybe they were just understaffed that night. Quite expensive for Spain (about 95 euro for four main courses, two glasses wine and coffee), but the quality of the meat made it worthwhile for us.

“Superb Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Have been here many times and we are never disappointed. Not a good location but the food, staff and service more than compensate. Something for every taste served by wonderful staff.

“Fantastic Rib-Eye Steak!!!! Great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

We passed this restaurant and decided to call in with a view to booking and are extremely glad we did! A large rustic, wooden tabled, restaurant, great for large parties. Hot bread and dips and pickled peppers and onions were brought before we ordered, all were lovely. We ordered traditional Argentinian pasties, as a starter, between two of us. Two pasties at 2 euros each were more than enough. They did offer 4 pasties for 7 euros which would have been over facing. The beef flavour was particularly good and both very authentic. The speciality of the house is definitely the steaks.. the waitress brought a huge platter to show us the choice, which included cuts of fillet, sirloin, huge T Bone, rib-eye and others. We decided to go with the 300g rib-eye which came with roasted veg on a very hot plate. We were absolutely delighted, my husband even said it was the 'best' steak he had ever eaten, it just melted in your mouth, it was thickly cut and cooked on the BBQ, to absolute perfection!! And we are lucky enough to eat out at good restaurants all over the world. The meal also included chips or jacket potato. The chips were incredible!! and the jacket was served with a fluffy, light, garlic butter..delicious. We also ordered a small Hawiian salad to go with it at 4.50 euros which was lovely and fresh and included, ham, pineapple and cheese. We thought the steak was excellent value for 19 euros each. The house wine was good and draught San Miguel was great too. We will e back.. too right we will.. try it you will not be disappointed!!

“An Excellent Steak with wonderful service and very good price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Someone recommended this place for Argentinian steaks so we went for a drive. It is a bit out of the way, but easy to find if you have a car. The decor is rustic/wood/steakhouse with wagon wheel lamps, etc. The place was generally clean (except those wagon wheels could use a good dusting!) The bathrooms were fine. Enso, our waiter greeted us very warmly and seated us. As we were perusing the menus he brought a tray showing the cuts of meat he had available. Nice to see it before you order even if it´s not cooked yet. We skipped the appetizers, ordered a salad to share and two nice looking filets (didn´t get their proper names). The meat was really delicious. The salad was fresh, the potatoes hot and freshly prepared, and all the portions were generous. This was a truly delicious meal and we enjoyed it thoroughly. The price was in the twenties! All I can say is we will be back.
