Had a delicious 'steak on a stone' here. Brilliant steak and a delicious pudding to follow. Lovely restaurant.

Stumbled across this restaurant, drawn in by it being the only one we had come across serving fajitas. The food was lovely, staff were very friendly and welcoming and spoke English well. Salad cart available and aperitif after. Couldn't ask for more. Would highly recommend. Seemed to be very popular with the British tourists (review by late 20's couple)

Been there for the first time and what a pleasant surprise it was. The staff was very professional and attentive. Ordered a sirloin steak w/fries and had sangria to drink (very well made). Food was served with 4 different side sauces, and came out very quickly. Good price for the quality of the food and great service. Recommend and will... More

Gutted we only went here the night before we flew home. I would urge you to visit here at the start of your holiday. The best food I had all fortnight. Lovely warm and welcoming service. The steak on the stone is just a great experience. It's a shame there's no outdoor area as it was very hot in there... More

We have been visiting this restaurant as a family for over 15 years and we are yet to be disappointed with anything other than a fantastic meal. The steak on a stone is huge, with lovely pieces of meat. My favourite is the swordfish steak, among others. The chocolate mousse is a must, but make sure you leave space as... More
