They don't mess around much with fancy food here. Order a steak and you get a steak. A side dish of grilled onion is... you guessed it: a grilled onion. In very rare (!) occasions you get meat of such a high quality that it really almost didn't have to be cooked at all. This was one of them. I ordrered a medium rare steak, and got a piece of meat that I would have sent back to the grill 99 out of a 100 times. But one tries first, and it was just melting in my mouth. The french fries was the best I've had anywhere.

We were seated with direct view to the grill, and that is always a good sign. They know their meat here, and don't pretend to be anything but a steak house. Recommended!

What a delightful experience after spending all day trying to locate this place! It is tucked away and looks very unassuming from the outside. We booked a table for 9pm as it was my finances birthday, glad we did as the place was heaving and people were queuing out of the door. The service was Impeccable and extremely polite. New chose sausage for starter and a fried cheese, followed by a steak that you cook at the table yourself - great fun experience and very tasty along with the French fries and Canadian potatoes. The bill came to around €44 euros and that was with a bottle of Spanish cava (friexenet). 2nd visit 1 week later, we booked again and couldn't get a table until 10pm. This time we has oxtail soup - fabulous, thick and tasty. We both thoroughly enjoyed the con loom steak, beautiful tender piece of meat with no fat.

The ambience is intimate and personal, great atmosphere, would thoroughly recommend this place for a super steak.

You must must must go to this restaurant if you like steak it is amazing from the moment you are welcomed in ans seated it is a unique experience. It is run by Family Mother and Sons I think and everyone seems to greet you. The food is simple but delicious, the beef the best I have had but it's more than that it's the ambiance in the place never been anywhere like it. Would say it was the best meal I've had all year can't say more than that!

This Uruguayan restaurant is hidden away on a back street near the beach - opening the door is like stepping back in time. Old school waiters in white serve up absolutely delicious cuts of meat cooked to perfection. Most of the menu is very good value although be careful not to be up-sold a pricier cut if you're on a budget.
