If you like fish and meat this is the place to be. Be warned you will have to book this time of year but you may be accommodated close to someone else but at least you can practice your Spanish while eating sounds cramped but it's ok Honest very good prices also

Great steaks and excellent service. Whilst there's no children's menu our 2 kids (11 and 8) both had the cheapest steak on the menu and to be honest they were just excellent - and at 8 euros each tremendous value!! Don't over order and make sure you're hungry on arrival as the steaks are absolutely huge (no starters required). Definitely... More

I have seen many reviews on Trip Advisor regarding bad service. I can say that the service was excellent and the food was superb. We ordered 2 starters between four of us and we all had steak. They were all cooked to our liking.

Have been here several times and have eaten steak, fish, rabbit and shell fish. All have been good but I suppose the big attraction are the huge great value steaks. Family members invariably have T bone, which are massive and often undercooked (which I prefer to overcooked). It is very Spanish which makes a nice change in the area which... More

Happy to be going for a second time. No airs no graces, full on Spanish. Big steaks, perfect fish. Please don't expect it to be fluffy. We're in Spain. Todo muy Bueno!

Recommended to this restaurant by friends whilst staying in nearby Villa martin. Certainly worth a visit if you are a big meat eater. Steaks were so thick we asked for them to be butterflied and for what you can't consume you can take home.

Good restaurant with great food. Unfortunately our waitress was very stressed and unfriendly, which ruined our experience. We'd rather eat at a place where the staff has more time to give the guests a great dining experience.

We had a meal here with friends on Wednesday night and as always, top class food at the most amazing prices. Our guests from the UK could not believe the quality or price. Service was very good and all the steaks we had (sirloin and fillet) were exceptional. There is also a huge selection of fish available.

Probably the biggest steaks ever: I would have given this a miss had I not been with eight others; my third visit and pretty much as expected. At best the steaks were of medium quality and, as before, they needed to go back due to undercooking. We all ordered our steaks cooked two notches up on what we would normally... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant whilst visiting family on holiday. And want a meal, I have never seen a fish counter & meat counter like it, not to mention the huge bottles of wine. I had a T bone steak that was the biggest I have ever seen. It was cooked to perfection. All in all a great... More
