New friends asked us out on recommendation from their recent visit. Traditional food though ambience reflected a canteen, standard service, opted for the traditional scabbard though 'rolled' instead of with banana as interested how it would be presented, it came with bones and nothing else...More

Used this restaurant 3 times during the week. Staff are lovely and very helpful. Food well cooked and steaks really good value - several euros cheaper than elsewhere and as good if not better. Well worth a visit.

Went twice for lunch. I had special which was fish in a perno sauce and my husband had pork. Very fresh and tasty and for 7.50 euros each good value. The house wine is good.

Bizarre evening waiting 2 hours for food, this restaurant kept reminding me of Fawlty Towers only I wasn't laughing. We were served by a girl in her overcoat who kept darting outside to drag unsuspecting punters in for a very long evening. The only chef...More

Not very busy when we visited, but good food, excellent service and reasonable prices. If you can not get a table at the Londres opposite, this is an interesting and cheaper alternative.

As others have said, a family run restaurant with fantastic, tasty home-cooked food. Not flashy, or smart, but with food served like this at these prices, who cares. I had the €12.25 3 course set menu & my husband went a la carte, which offered...More
