“Meat Overload”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Although the meat was delicious, this was (for me) a completely unbalanced meal, in a room fogged up by the smoke of the hot coals. There was no room on the tiny table for the salad, chips, water and bottle of wine plus glasses. There is no doubt that the meat here is plentiful and certainly very nice, but as a whole it was for me, an okay, but certainly not an exceptional dining experience.

“Great dinner with friends”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

This is a really sociable way to spend an evening over dinner. The cooking on hot rocks is fun and you get unlimited salad and fries. Drinks are reasonably priced, so it all makes for a geat evening.

“Massive meat ”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Went here with my partner and brother and his new girlfriend and it was the best place we could have picked.
Excellent food, brilliant service and really enjoyed the 'Cook it yourself' theme.
The size of the cuts of meat were huge and great value.
I can highly recommend the tuna steak as that's what I had but thumbs up all around the table.
Going to head here again when were back on the island!!!

“Great fun”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

The food is plentiful - the members of our party had a combination of tuna, prawns and steak to cook on the hot stones. Some lovely sauces were served, particularly the bearnaise with the steaks. The fries are plentiful and the wine reasonably priced. The service was both efficient and very friendly.
