This place is always packed especially with locals so you know it's a good sign. The food is delicious and the portions are huge, the mixed grill in particular. The onion soup starter is amazing and the omelettes though simple are fantastic and very authentic. Highly recommended

A very fine restaurant if you like BBQ. There are plenty to choose from and the mixed grill plate is a lot of food. Great place to eat.

I had the Filet Mignon and my partner had the T-Bone. Cooked just how we asked and was so tender and succulent. I love a good steak and I'm a really fussy eater, and I mean fussy. €18 for mine and €19 for my ladies, and worth every cent. Definitely coming back for another one before I go home. Excellent...

Four of us visited for our last meal of the holiday before heading home. We hadn't done any research so just took a bit of a punt after having a drink near by, and spotting the meat kebabs on hanging skewers. They looked great from a distance, and were actually superb. The other two had a lasagne that he was... More

The meat was amazing and the service great. We were three persons having steak with Roquefort sauce, steak with mushroom sauce and steak with bearnaise sauce. We also had Irish coffee which was really good. We really loved the friendly and service minded staff that played jokes with us. We would definitely go here again for some steaks. But there... More

After spending 9 nights at a All in inclusive mediocre hotel, we popped in here with high hopes of a nice meal!! Got to say the quality of the food was amazing! From the T Bone steak to the paella (for one) to the tasty deserts and free shots. Lovely staff, wonderfully environment and an amazing night. 5 out 5... More

Me and my partner were a bit lost when we first arrived in Playa del Ingles and we sort of stumbled upon the restaurant as it was only 2 minutes from our hotel. It didn't appeal to us massively from the outside but as we didn't really know anywhere else we took a gamble and came in. Best decision in... More
