Oh wow, those espetadas are delicious... they nailed it on the medium rare, neither over- nor under-cooked. And the fillet steak on the stone is to die for! As others have said, don't be fooled by the exterior, this place has some good food.

It was my first time ever having the dish despite regularly having fillet steak and wow! It comes with sides and sauces and didn’t disappoint. Was wonderful and the service good too.

The outside of this restaurant does not reflect the qaulity of the food they serve. We had been recommended to try the place which was packed when we arrived and this helped create a nice atmosphere. The food and service was very good - well...More

We watch a lot of Gordon Ramsay, and sometimes during our visit at this place we thought: Chef, you've given up! The food is simple and average, we suspect a lot of frozen ingredients. Known for steaks on a stone and fajitas, please be aware...More
