“Disappointed”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Both had the steak and it was a bit on the tough side, the jacket potato wasn't cooked all the way through and they use frozen vegetables. However the bread with a spicy sauce that they serve 'on the house' was very nice.

“Argentinian restaurant”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

We went at lunchtime and started with a plate of cheese and bread to share €7. We both had novillo steak (€17 each) which came with vegetables and a choice of potato - baked, fried or patatas a lo pobre. A nice touch was that the alioli garlic mayonnaise for the baked potato was served as optional, on the side. The steaks were cooked as requested "al punto" and "medium to well". The steaks were large in size and the quality of meat good. The vegetables and potato were rather disappointing as is often the case in Spanish restaurants.

Even though the restaurant wasn't that busy, service could have been more attentive. We didn't have any cutlery, no-one checked if we were happy etc.

For wine we had a good bottle of Ribera del Duero roble red wine which was good value at around €14.

Total bill including sparkling waters and espresso coffees came to €60.

Incidentally Fogon del Pibe also offer a Menu a la Brasa for just €7.90 comprising of two courses plus dessert and bread. This seemed quite popular with some of the locals.

“The best steaks in Torre”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Consistently fabulous steaks at Fogon Del Pibe pull us back for more than one visit during our holiday stay every year in the Torre del mar area. We always recommend this super restaurant to our carniverous friends as the steaks are "melt in the mouth" wonderful. Look out for the Empinadas as well - highly recommended!
