Great restaurant for a relaxed family meal, food was amazing, staff are great with the children and very reasonably price. Would definitely book a table though as very busy.

We have been before and had good nights .. however we feel we are now being robbed as tourists / owners of properties. 3 Malibu and cokes they now charge as doubles ( nothing was told, everywhere else we go we get usual Spanish measures).... They even had the cheek to charge us for ketchup!!! Already spoken to friends etc ( all live out here) and they agree it’s a joke. Some have already said they won’t be going to this restaurant… shame really but don’t take the p1ss out of tourists..More

Have visited La Estancia twice on this holiday. Fantastic restaurant. The staff were great, very helpful and fun. Possibly the best steaks we have ever had. And we have had a few! Great ribs too. Well worth a visit for all the family. You will...be well looked after at this place for sure. #LaEstanciaforlifeMore

Have been here many times and it never dissapoints. The only place that actually serves you blue (bloody) if you ask for it. Good quality, nice people and good wine.

Argentinian steak house with tasteless and chewy meet. We were mer with friendliness and effectiveness, orgsnizing a tanke for several families. It was crowded and the waiters were busy. The starter was given within respectable time, and was tasty ( grilled goatcheese), but only one...of twelve, had a starter, the rest of us waited for our beef’s.We told they could serve the maincourse whenever, after one hour We asked why it took so long. They told us a lot of huset, but in 3 minutes the food would come. We waited another 30 minutes, then said they had to be honest about time because We were very hungry and needed to find other options if they could not deliver. They then promised the food in 15 minutes, and that promised came true. I had the most expensive beef, but it tasted nothing. It was the chips and the sauce that added flavour. Others in the company, had rumpsteak which was very chewy. When the bill came, they charged us the full amount, but gave us after asking 10% discount- and a free bottle of wine at our next visit!!! The long waiting time,was due to technical problems with the oven. Everyone seemed to work hard, and I think the chef had a very stressful working day. The restaurant was ful, many waited very long for the food. The waiters told they were not used to this large amount of guests. But it should be better to adjust the amount of guests according to the capasity of the restaurant, that would have given a better experience for all parts. It seemed like they wanted as many guests as possible, have them wait for very long without any information or extra service ( did not Even Ask if we needed more ester) serve them tasteless and chewy meet and Charge full price. Maybe the ovners just do not care, as we are all tourists going there and we stay here in a limited time and will most likely never return. But after travelling for 12 days in France and Spain, having all dinners out with only good experience, this was a really bad experience and a tourist trap. Do not go there! We ordere, It took 1,5 hour to get the meal. They also charged the full sum.More

Heard good things about this place so figured we'd give it a try, as the area nearby is seriously in need of a good steakhouse after Grill Rancho (rip) went under. We went there without a reservation, got promptly seated and were handed the menu,...which was pretty basic - pil pil, caesars salad, you know, the standard appetizers and salads you'll find in all the local tourist restaurants. But I was not in a search of a fine dining experience anyway, I was there for the meat. As we were dining out late, my missus felt eating light so she settled for the Caesar salad (which was an aquarium sized bowl!) which she devoured while I was waiting for my meat. The staff was all over the place. They didnt seem to know what we were eating because they tried to take the salad away while eating and brought meat utensil for my wife although she only ordered the salad. Forget about someone filling your wine glass when empty also, this is self service. For the desert we ordered drinks from two different waiters, unfortunately they never arrived but we got billed of them anyways. I mentioned this to the waiter, they apologized and brought the drinks for us free. Nicely done! My wife was not a fan because of all these mishaps, but I felt this was an honest to god steakhouse. Sure you can order fancy wines and eat rabbit food here, but that is not where this place excels - I recommend you to come here belly empty and order the biggest steaks in the neighbourhood, wash them down with your hand poured wine and pay the man. You can come here as you are, be well received, served (ultimately) and billed. Then you leave and you'll be back because you love meat, and here is where you'll *meet* it at their best. Ps. First time you should try the ribeye.More

Our favorite place to go when we want to treat ourselves with a little extra, when in Riviera Del Sol. Fantastic steaks, nice sides and sauces and delicious deserts. A little expensive, still worth every cent! Glad the place is still what it was before...covid.More

Hi Craig, They take American express card. If you are in Calahonda you must go to La estancia. The food is amaizing and every Friday night they have a Latin night they have a summer menu out too.
