We had a steak meal. It was cold by the time it arrived at the table and I had to get the waiter to provide a hot plate to put the meat on to reheat it. The waiter then left the dining room and I saw him sat on a table in the kitchen chatting with other staff. He eventually removed our plates but did not return to see if we wanted a sweet or coffee. After a wait I went over the the female manager and asked for my bill. We have had good experiences with the tapas at the bar but we will not dine there again. The service was the worst we have experienced anywhere in our worldwide travels. It was inexcusable as the restaurant was not busy

Recommended to us by locals. We have since been there several times and would have gone more often but wanted to try as many new place as possible. It's always been a joy.Delicious food- We especially the buey (which is ox). Very tasty and served grilled until it is raw and served with a hot griddle so you can cook it to your liking. Nice selection of tapas like a stack of eggplant with a fried quail egg on top. There is also live music at night with many locals standing up from their table to join in the song and dance.

This restaurant is such a joy! The atmosphere creates the mood right away, and then the menu! Everything we have tried has been delicious and innovative. I love the buey you heat to your liking right at the stable with a steaming hot grill and coarse sea salt.
There has been a local band doing “gipsy king” music everytime we have gone, and the customers (usually locals, but not only...) always spontaneously get up and practice their flamenco moves, then the vibe really heats up, it us such fun! Don’t miss assorted dessert platter..wow!.. It is a place I can’t miss whenever we are in town, love the staff too, all very kind and helpful. You recognize faces after you’ve been there a few times, and they might recognize yours too.

This place was recommended by a Bar in Central Torrevieja. I walked out (around 20 mins from the port) and was met with a chill cabinet full of Dry Aged Beef. Gluton for punishment I had 1.2KG Rib on the Bone. Prepared on the grill and then brought to the table with a Searing Skillet. It was sublime. A salad and Potatoes completed the ensemble. (Oh and a bottle of the House Red - Very Drinkable) Excellent Service and then some traditional live music - (andalusian ? ) A great experience.
