“NicE food but missing the point”
Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

We came here for the 'menu del dia' lunch for 10 euros a head which on reflection was good value for the food, the ' del dia' menu is quite tight with only two choices per course and one desert on offer, but, my food( salad followed by steak) was absolutely fine, the steak accompanied with a selection of dips and sauces was a nice touch, the atmosphere was cold and at times we felt like we were intruding on a business meeting. My four year old daughter loved her burger but couldn't come close to eating it all as it was adult portion as they don't have a kids menu which tells me they're not welcome?!?!
The waiter had a shaking issue thatade us quite nervous!
I think this restaurant has good intentions but is missing the point slightly, more friendly/less stuffy, and you'll go far in this lovely village.

Thank you for the review and the helpful remarks. The Lunch Menu is changing weekly and always has two choices for the starter and three for the main plate. Also there are two choices for the dessert. But of course we also offer all our dishes of the standard menu card and so everybody has quite a choice of many different offers. Children are always welcomed. Today there have been several young guests with us for lunch and on request we can offer different plates for all ages. But please talk with us. I am nearly always present and will solve all your problems and will try hard to fulfill your requests if possible. Hope to see you again in the near future!

“Best Steaks in Benalmádena!”
Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

I have to say I've eaten in a lot of steak restaurants but this is by far the best rib eye steak I've ever eaten! The restaurant has a lovely ambience and the service was impeccable. The owner and he's staff we're very welcoming and made you feel at home I cant wait to go back! If you visit Benalmádena you have to go here!

“Saturday evening meal.”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

A very rewarding visit, excellant food, cooked and served to the highest standard. A bottle of house red that complimented our steak meal perfectly. The owner and staff were excellant and ensured our meal and evening was enjoyed to the full. The menu was comprehensive and much to the wife and I liking. A friendly, proffesional and complete restaurant that can not do eneough for its diners, I will certainly dine here next visit and recomend it to all my friends.

This review is very surprising and also iriritating to me. We nether serve cold meals and never use old oil. The difference is only that we use Olive oil for frying the potatos. And of course we take meals which do not please our clients off the bill. We do never discuss with our clients, it is their decision. But this review is very different to all the others but we are still the same restaurant, every day. So may be the competition should use better ways to compete with us but writing this kind of review. So everybofy is invited to test our quality and talk with us about it!
