Ate here last night with family. Decor hasn't changed in years but it is a good reliable restaurant. We got there around 5 and had no problem getting a table (we had no reservation). However, when we were leaving, all the tables were taken and there were people waiting to get a table. One had the chicken maryland which was delicious. The childrens menu was good value too. I had the surf and turf - 8oz fillet service with some battered scampi. A choice of potato dish was included. However, I felt this dish was somewhat over priced - there wasn't even a mushroom or onion garnish with the steak - side dishes of these were around the €4 mark which would have made an already expensive dish even more expensive. The food was very tasty indeed but overall a tad expensive.

Ordered a 20 oz sirlion and a fillet,both medium rare to medium,when the steaks arrived they looked burnt,blackened..sirlion was well done so sent it back,15 mins later both steaks arrived back,this time the sirlion was raw in the middle(also noticed the sirlion had been cut in the middle ) a proper chef never cuts a steak to check it) and my wifes original fillet was cold and tough as boots..paid for our drinks and left,people rave about this great steak house but its a large souless dining room and the chef,well i wouldnt let him cook for the dog,will never return

Its steakhouse with reputation for excellent steaks. That reputation is well deserved, the rest of the menu is ordinary and somewhat expensive for what you get. Good for standard lunch.

Love this place, steaks are delicious - excellent quality meats & the side orders are good too.
Leave room for desserts thou, the home made éclair is yummy.
Great to see they have cut their prices too now it really is good value for money.
