Was so excited to eat here from seeing reviews and was hugely disappointed. The food took so long to come. They forgot to serve our starters. And when the steak did come it was definitely over cooked! Horrible experience and won't ever go back!

This was the third visit - service is slightly "fawlty towers", but this just adds to the ambience. Superb choice for a steak of any cut - when other restaurants advertise as, weight before cooking, these babies come out bigger than advertised, such is the...More

Dined alone and very attentive but not intrusive service. Ate from the Early Bird menu - nachos and mixed fajitas - good quality and very tasty. Would certainly visit again.

A great meal. We had the mixed grill for two and, while there was some confusion over the wine list, the service was very friendly and helpful. The chicken in particular was excellent. Can't recommend it enough.

Situated in the cellar of the building across the road from the Novotel and Ibis hotels on Portland Street. The decor is basic but clean and gives the feel of a steakhouse which in essence is what it is. As is my normal practice, i...More

Party of 6 of us visited last night (Fri). The restaurant is below ground and resembles a Mexican courtyard, white-washed walls and wooden tables. Nothing too fussy or fancy, but a good honest, simple, rustic ambience. The staff were very friendly and polite and we...More
