Whatever you eat here you are going to want to go back, my son had the mixed grill twice, I had steak and proper home made fries. I wish it was round the corner from home.

Me my wife and a Couple, have been there in 2014 and 2015, the two times we've been there, the service was excellent, and the meat 5 stars, fresh and tender. (Try de T-Bone if you can eat it all), also gambas al ajillo to start with garlic bread. Hummmm

Fantastic food and very friendly staff. The t bone is highly recommended for those that are very hungry! We went as a group of 6 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food. I would recommend for anyone wanting quality stake on their holiday
