Without doubt the best tasting tenderloin beef we have ever tasted. Great value for money. It may be a bit touristy for some people but ...... the steak is fantastic. Good value wine as well. What more could you want.

Visiting San Telmo market on a Sunday. Had been told that Desnivel was a mix of locals and tourist, but beef was good and price was outstanding. Had also read about some poor service, but convenience overcame hesitation. Glad that was the case. We arrived...More

locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee
hours of the morning. During the day, the antique
