Set up in a high end food market, sort of like a deli, the restaurant's seating plan has chairs and tables in various nooks and crannys throughout the store. And it is family run. We chose the 'chuteletas', the steak that comes seasoned only with...More

Casa Rufo was an insider tip - an old-fashioned restaurant that doubles as a grocery store stocked with Iberico and cured meats, canned goods, wines, olive oils, a variety of confectionary and homemade breads. We dropped by on a Tuesday evening around 9.30pm for dinner,...More

We found this special restaurant on Trip Advisor and booked a table a Friday evening. We had the special basque meat 'chuteletas' and loved it. Juicy and tasteful meat served on a hotplate. Desserts were also nice. Service could have been more cheerful though..

This daytime deli morphs into a splendid restaurant at night. It is deservedly famous for its T bone steaks. We had one and it was good, but there were other enticing options on the menu. Our starters of smoked salmon for my wife and foie...More

This small cozy restaurant has two exceptional things: 1. exceptionally good food 2. exceptionally unprofessional and impolite personnel This does not sound like a recommendation but believe me, after you try their meals (both meat or fish) you will forget that they did not treated...More

Lovely cosy warm atmosphere and interior with great steak. We arrived on a Friday evening at opening and were very lucky to get a table as others were turned away. We went for the T bone steak which was delicious and arrived sliced on a...More

Great restaurant but you WILL NEED TO BOOK A TABLE. It is small comfortable and cozy with great ambiance. You'd come her for a T-Bone Steak which they will serve 1-1.2kg size for 2 people. It comes salted & Rare on a hot plate, so...More
