I have been hear on several occasions and have never been disappointed. Top class steak house, my favorite meal being the butterflied fillet medium, also the T-bone is HUGE at least 40 ounce! Be aware the steaks can be a bit under cooked to what you might be used to in the UK but just makes my fillet even better!

Spanish steakhouse with top class steak cooked as you like it. The fridges are in full view and have more meat and fish than the supermarket. Fillet steak is to die for if you like rare meat get the full fillet but be warned it is about 2 inches thick so will be really rare, but don't worry about sending... More

Spanish restaurant specialising in steak. Nothing outstanding really and probably milking its reputation a bit. It is just ok, although service was a disappointment compared to other restaurants in Pilar . We wouldn't go back to be fair. Hopefully you will have a better experience than us.

Great for huge succulent steaks. Vast range of seafood and fish. Fantastic food but slow service. Could do with more waiters/waitresses.

Staff rushing about, very noisy, yes big steak and value for money, if you like your steak rare this is all you get, if you don't well!, be prepared to slice it up yourself and send it back for more cooking, sometimes on more than one occasion Ask for black angus and you will get a better cut. Garlic prawns... More

Impressive as you enter and observe the fridges. Selection of beef and seafood. The service is... Hectic however we were prewarned so found it entertaining. Acoustic nightmare but again, we viewed this as entertainment. Not a romantic ambiance. More party and fun. Very reasonably priced. And nice wine. The steaks were massive, perhaps too big. Next time we will share... More

So very crowdy and loud cafeteria. Entering you will see in the coolers all kinds of meat and fish. This gives a first good impression of the quality of the food. So here we go....quality of the meat and the fish is top!!! Quality of the fries,salads and sauce is crap. Service was chaotic and as i am a frequent... More

Nice place shame about the food. The steak was enormous and tough (supposed to be fillet) I fought the steak and the steak won! Perhaps we were just unlucky or the Chef got it wrong, either way we won't be going back.
