“Good food and good fun!”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

This is a place to go with friends as it is very entertaining as well as serving good food.
As all the food is cooked in front of you and quickly cooked on a steel plancha the quality has to be good. The chef is a showman and keeps everyone entertained.
If you do not want to go for this type of meal they also have excellent Sushi.
We have been 3 times since the opened a couple of months ago and it has definitely been added to our list of regular restaurants.

“Try it.”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

I have to admit that I was not too keen to go to this restaurant, but i'm so pleased I did. We sat at a table around a large metal plancha and watched chef prepare our lunch. There are quite a few set lunch options and 2 of us had the salmon followed by beef and 2 of us had chicken followed by beef. As part of the set lunch first we had prawns in tempura then a lovely light salad. Then came the chicken and salmon with veg followed by steak with egg fried rice, all done on the plancha. All for euro 17.50 per person. It was fun to watch the chef do his thing and I have to say that the steak is the best I have eaten in Spain.
This restaurant does not look exciting from the outside and there are lots of other restaurants on the same street, but give it a try. I'm really looking forward to going back for delicious food cooked just a little differently.
