We all had angus steaks and we all enjoyed them. As it was 20:00h when we arrived at the restaurant, we were the first customers and as a result the service was very personal and friendly. Because of the 50% offer on the whole card (except for the angus dishes which are 40% off), the bill at the end wasn't too high.

I somehow mis-mapped the place we were intending to dine and decided if we saw a pleasant looking place on our way back to the hotel where I'd again have wi-fi and could "re-map," we'd eat there.

Al Punt had a sign offering 50% off regular food prices and the menu and the property looked inviting. It worked out fine for us. An alternate title of this review could well be "too much food." Being only 8 p.m.we were the first diners and made to feel very welcome in the pleasantly appointed dining room. Service throughout was excellent.

Had we ordered one mushroom/scampi/brie starter to split, it still would have been too much food. Quite tasty as well, but 200 g. of melted brie cascading across the top of an already rich mushroom/egg/scampi concoction reminded me of a time in Missouri where a small mountain of deep fried chicken livers were a starter course.

When Pat ordered the grilled lamb ribs, we had visions of a first lamb of the year one Easter years ago somewhere along the Duero, where the chops were silver dollar sized and not much thicker, on ribs like lollipop sticks. The six or so chops at Al Punt were almost pork chop size with meat and alluring fat running down the rib for five or six inches. My grilled duck breast was well presented and the caramelized onions were terrific, but I'd forgotten European ducks are so "farmed" these days they've lost much of what makes duck special. It was again, however, a huge portion, for what that's worth.

Good wine selection at what seemed good prices to my Pacific NW eye, but it was our first night here so I have no way to know. The Argentine Malbec labels I recognized (and like) were half a dozen euros more than Riojas and Duero's so we opted for a Ciranza that was just fine.

In a city with 3700+ TA rated eateries I won't hurry back, but we had a very enjoyable European meal at distinctly bargain rates... had we known to order half as much food, it would have been a steal.

Disappointing

An anodyne place, badly lit. The dishes are disgusting, especially the signature dish: a steak drenched in blueberry jam. Don´t waste your money!
