This is a jewel of a place tucked away. It a very traditional and always packed with locals. The lamb chops were fantastic and you get about 7, the mixed grill was huge and the paella was great. We made two visits in a week, really worth finding and trying

Just a short walk from our hotel and attracted by the little fake cow standing outside, we went here for dinner. He had a T-Bone steak, resembling half a cow and I had steak in Roquefort sauce - both absolutely outstanding - thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff were really lovely, drinks were enormous and we were both surprised at how reasonably... More

We liked the look of this restaurant, not modern and pretentious but more traditional. We ordered a platter of meat and cheese as a starter followed by fillet steaks, these came with fries and a salad. Both me and my husband reckon the steaks were the best we have ever had and the largest - at least 12oz, my husband's... More

We visited for a meal while staying at the nearby Waikiki, both my husband and I ordered the veal fillet. Have to say they were the best steaks we have ever had absolutely delicious. The staff and customers are friendly and welcoming.

Visited this place on our last night and it was amazing! We ordered a cheesy garlic bread and 2 T bone stakes and I got a pud. We got Canadian potatoes with our mains and they were mega tasty. Was so flavoursome and excellent value for money, the steak melted in your mouth and tasted so good. We sat next... More
