“was ok but didnt live up to the hype on tripadvisor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

After reading so many positive reviews i was a little dissapointed in person, I ordered a fillet steak to be cooked medium but when it arrived it was well done and lacked any sort of flavour, My husbands steak was cooked better but he wasnt blown away by the quality and didnt thin it was value for money,infact the steakhouse was our most expensive meal all week and we only had main courses whereas elsewhere we had a two course meal for less and was more enjoyable.. Maybe just a bad a day or a wrong meal choice.

“Most visited”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

This is the place we just kept going back too.
Great food and excellent friendly service.
The fillet steak was amazing. For €17.50 I got a huge steak with pepper sauce. The portions really are bigger than we are used to in the uk but the quality does not suffer at all.
My advice would be to stick to steak as it's a steak house and you won't be disappointed.

“Scrumptious !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

Just came back from a week all inclusive in costa caleta and visited this restaurant 3 times in the week!! Have been here on previous holidays and the food is still as good and very reasonable. The leg of lamb is a delight, delicious Canarian potatoes with mojo sauce, great fillet streak. Very generous portions. Friendly staff, bread on arrival with garlic butter, lovely sangria. Wish they had one in England!

“Brilliant Food - Excellent Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

The quality of the food in relation to the price at Fado Rock is fab. We went with a party of 9. The place was (unsurprisingly) buzzing yet we were seated and served with great efficiency. The staff were friendly and coped with 9 of us asking questions about both the drinks and food menus. All drinks arrived speedily and food orders taken quickly. Main courses chosen and delivered in good time included Fillet Steak cooked at the table on a hot platter for 2 (Chas and me), Chicken cooked in a brick, Chicken Maryland and Calzone Pizza. All were excellent and delivered with a choice of baked potato or fries and salad. The choice of meat, chicken and fish/ seafood is extensive and other diners seemed happy with their selections too. The staff are good natured and enjoy a bit of banter with the customers. The food is great and the atmosphere is lively. We enjoyed it so much we returned later in the week as a couple and were just as pleased on our second visit.
