Excellent steak house in a small street. Kind staff and tasty well-prepared steak. Pleas note that this is a steak only house, so no sea food at all. Just very very good steak dishes. Please try it!

Very small place, Husbond and wife only, husband cook, wife serve. Speaks good english. Perfectly grilled meat and vegetables, especially the pork was fantastic ! Order 3-4 meals one by one and share them as tapas. Good wine at fair price. Go there !

The restaurant is simple, no frills, but has great food and friendly staff. We ate outside, but the place is old fashioned and has tables inside.

We ate outside, and the waitress helped us go through the different types of meat available. Our Argentina Malbec was perfect for the meal as it gave it more taste. Overall, we had a good meal and a nice time outside.
