“Should be higher up in the ratings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is amongst many others but on the night we visited it seemed to be the most popular. Think linen table cloths, linen napkins, candles and attentive service and this is what we got. The food was delicious (i had the chefs chicken dish and my husband had steak) and the iced coffee was amazing. Defintely a must and I don't know why this restaurant is not higher up in the ratings on Trip Advisor

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

The service at this restaurant was excellent and the food was amazing. Very reasonably priced and the Baileys coffee was to die for :-) we were staying across the road from here and from our balcony we could see that there was always plenty of diners so this proves to be a popular restaurant. We would definitely visit again in the future.

“Excellent”

Excellent food and the steak was superb. One niggle is though that I ordered tiramisu for desert. The cream was sour and it was changed for a fresh one. I was still billed for it.

“Great Steaks, Excellent Service and Lip-Lickingly Good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

Liked this restaurant so much we returned to eat there three times in one week. The welcome and service were classy, without being pretentious. The menu is typical for this area with a speciality in Argentinian beef. Prices are reasonable for this tourist area, coming in at around 34 euros for 2 steaks, with all the trimmings, a half litre of wine and bottle of water.
Steaks were lean, tender and cooked perfectly. Canarian potatoes and mojo sauce were the best we've ever had and vegetables well presented and cooked 'al dente'.
The meal was finished off with a complimentary shot of a delightful, local liquer. Lip-Lickingly good!
