This place came recommended. We queued up outside the restaurant 20 minutes before opening time. We were not alone. The first thing that strikes you is the table placement. Longtables. They cram the guests in. Probably a smart business move. A money machine. Now our...More

Very reasonable restaurant however the ceiling was covered in flies so not that appetizing. Got a bit Smokey too as all the steaks were being cooked in a tiny restaurant and the door wasn’t opened. Having said that meal was tasty but not the cleanest...More

Fantastic meals, we were for dinner for the first time but for sure not the last time. They offer us slice steak and codfish. We do not know what is the best. Also is a wonderful feeling when I prepare the meal for myself.

You cook your own meat on a very hot stone. It is delicious and affordable. Off course there is a wait, unless you get there when it first opens at 7pm. My check of 1/2 litter wine and the dish was €14

Came here on the recommendation of friends who came here the previous night. You’ll likely wait a little bit as this may be a well blogged about spot. Lots of tourists but it shouldn’t deter you. The steak you’ll cook yourself on a hot stone....More

A really nice place for good meat, smiling people. but be careful, when you don't know, they pu charcuterie and cheese on the table and it's not free. You will pay expensive for it. It's write nowhere. It's not good to do this.
