This is such a fabulous restaurant, the steaks are absolutely huge and the fish is also large portions and delicious and vast menu choice. Been three times over the years and it never disappoints, the staff are very friendly and very attentive.

Don't be shy and share a steak, the portions of Galician steak are huge, more than enough for two. This time I opted for the grilled monkfish and regretted it when I saw my husbands fillet. He ordered medium rare and it was perfect. Chips cooked in olive oil are never good but the grilled mixed veg were spot on.... More

The restaurant is pretty big, but it is well worth reserving a table since even I was out of season, the restaurant was always quite full. You have a variety of meats to choose from which are grilled to your taste. I visited it twice, once I took the T-Bone steak and the other time the Fillet. I would recomment... More
