Really good food, but sometimes incredibly slow service. The last time I visited I had to wait almost two hours for the meal to start. Will go back again though, will just have to have my "chill " head on.

Great rib eye steaks!!! Flor is a great host and her husband Leo is an amazing cook. Meals there will be memorable - the Argentinian beef and wine choice is excellent, but do not eat there if you are in a hurry - good meals take time.

We read the trip advisor reviews of this place before we went and every review mentions the amazing waiting staff that work there - and is quite true. They are lovely people and very attentive. But don't go if you're in a rush! This is certainly not a criticism, go, relax and enjoy. The food is to die for. Every... More

Visited this restaurant twice whilst away with my boyfriend. One of the best steaks I've had. The side dishes are also delicious and they definitely don't skimp on portions! The lady that works here is so lovely and can put a smile on anyone's face! She also comes out with little cow blankets when it gets a bit chilly which... More

My boyfriend and I ate here as a special treat the 3rd evening of our holiday (we were all inclusive in the Hesperia but fancied a change). It was the best decision we made all holiday! The whole meal was delicious and was the best steak I've ever had. The owner was a lovely lady who showed us to a... More

My hubby organised a birthday Meal here he made a reservation while still in The U.K. A little slow to respond so plan early but from start to finish the staff the atmosphere and the food were out of this world and to top it off a birthday cake made by the chef highly recommend a visit

Our last night in Lanzarote...could not have been spent better. By the light breeze of Puerto Calero marina, a great Argentinian/Uruguayan steak house. Excellent food, impeccable service. On the expensive side but worth every euro cent
