“Not as good as they make out!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

We visited the steakhouse on recommendation from our rep and because a few other English guests in the hotel were talking about it. We got there at about 6pm and it was not good from the start. The waiters ignored us and when we eventually got a table (there were plenty of other empty ones) it took what seemed like forever to be offered a drink and for our order to be taken. While we were there all that the staff seemed to do was stand and watch tv, bar 1 chap who was cleaning the floor. He came and cleaned right under the table without asking for us to move which we found very rude. The food was not brilliant for what you pay. At the end of the meal we heard staff saying don't forget your waiter basically asking for a tip. We found this rude and had not experienced it anywhere else.

“Great Food”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

If you like place and are in Tunisia this is your place to visit, don't get me wrong I'm sure there are other steak houses in Tunisia but nothing like this.
Once we got there we got seated and given our menus asked if we wanted a drink and left alone to look over a menu which just made my mouth water i wanted everything on it ha-ha, but me and my wife both settled for a steak mine medium and my wife's well done, a funny thing happened before our steaks arrived thou a woman come over to our table and asked if we had had our order taken and if we where ok but in a Scottish voice it was then i found out it was actually run by a Scottish couple.
Our steaks arrived along with veg on the plate and some coos coos and everything was great steak the way i wanted it veg Alden tie and coos coos was lovely all in all a really nice meal an all for £30 English money for something back home you are looking at £60 easily.
If you get the chance go you will not be disappointed.

“Perfect steak”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Must have a steak! Really nice! Don't need to order side orders plenty comes with main course!

We went back a second time to have something different, had a lasagne, thought that was just ok.... Nothing beats the steak

“Wouldn't think it was English ran”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

This is an ok place to visit but considering it is English ran it doesn't have an English feel and can bacon isn't always available. Be careful to leave the correct change as they 6 dinar change they took as a tip without asking or leaving first. The service is average but this is one of the best places for evening entertainment

“Great find!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Took a break from the all inclusive beer and popped over for a nice cold Heineken! I have to say that it is a great spot. The waiters are polite and on the ball! Watched a bit of the Murray match at Wimbledon on the big screen and enjoyed a couple of ice cold beers. Not eaten there yet but have booked for Friday night for a Birthday treat. First impressions were very good though!
