Great place: the food was excellent (we had the 250g fillet steak which was superb!!), the service was really attentive and friendly and the restaurant has a very good atmosphere. I would definitely recommend it!

The food at this place is average at best. After the 45 quid extra the Madame tried to add on to the bill for nothing my rating slips to poor!

Went there twice during our 6 day stay. Yes it is small but the steaks are exquisite. A little chaotic when busy but you always get a friendly face.

Me and three friends were looking for somewhere in Holborn to eat but I'm not normally enamoured with the area for eating. However, my friend Googled the area and came up with this place.

The food here is incredible, the steaks are nothing like I've experienced. We ordered a number of items to start, chorizo, empanadas and for main the 350 fillet. Incredibly cooked with a beautiful garlic and herb sauce brushed on top. There is a reason this gets such high ratings on TripAdvisor.

Work really nearby and wanted to find somewhere great for lunch, checked TripAdvisor and saw the wonderful reviews and decided to give it a go. I wasn't disappointed, service was prompt and friendly but most importantly the steak was absolutely spot on. Will definitely be back!
