“Disaster”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

We were a group of 4 pax for dinner , it took 5 attempts for 3 different waiters to get a vodka and soda right , we spoke in Spanish also . The house wine was off and taste awful. Next I had a bottle of tonic thrown all over me with a feeble apology " sorry lady " ice bucket leaking water all over the floor , an accident waiting to happen . No body cleaned up or took notice . Food came after 1.45 min and was not hot and average in quality . Ceased salad sent back . A bowl of lettuce with 2 small pieces of ice cold chicken thrown in . Never again .

“Great steaks!”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Friendly service and fantastic steaks. Perfect location right in the heart of puerto banus. Perfect for a late dinner before a night out.

“Excellent lunch in the marina”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This restaurant is in Puerto Banus, Spain...so I hope it's the right place. Many lunch places from which to chose...among the Ferrari's, Maserati's and Lamborghini's. Had a great grilled hanger steak, excellent gazapacho. Service was good. Only downside were the guys hawking purses and sunglasses that would invade your space every few minutes.

“Don't go here”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

We was 8 persons who planned to have final dinner after a nice week, turned out to be a nightmare. Some stake was over cocked, some didn’t get the right meet, some had to wait for a long time, but the side dish was served and had to be eaten cold. The smell/smoke from the grill was so thick so we had to wash all our jacket and clothes the day after. But the worst thing was that the “owner” Homyerto Gacioppo didn’t care at all and was very unpleasant to talk to could not see or understand what we as guest felt during the visit.
Don’t go there !
