We were charged for bread and cheese we didn't ask for, the waitress decided to choose the type of tea we wanted for us, giving us fruit tea. She then marched off when we said it's not we asked for and had the cheek to charge us for that too. Plus their risotto was like a tin of mushroom soup... More

This place promised great steaks by checking the menu. Actually everything was disappointing. The meat tasted disgusting, old, tough and not fresh. They offered a salad which we thought was for free (that's how they make it sound) and then they charged almost 5 euro for a salad that I wouldn't even feed to my rabbit. A total waste of... More

Let's put it like this - if you've tasted the water from the Dead Sea, you're getting close to how salty the meat is. It is unbelievably. I ordered the meat medium rare, my girlfriend ordered medium rare and my girlfriends brother ordered medium rare - we all got extra well done. A Michelin tyre is more tender. Also, it's... More

Good service but not good meat quality. Ordered sirloin medium rare and gave me well done :( They charged without explaining appetizer of cream and bread. Not recommended, not good food for value.

Steaks are nothing what they have shown on the menu. Tough, over cooked, tasteless etc. waiter was good though, that is why I gave 2 stars.

We visited due to the extensive menu. Steak was okay. Fish was not cooked all the way through and not all edible (fed to street cat). Bread and cheese were good (it states on menu that you need to tell them if you don't want it, otherwise there is a cost).

This restaurant seemed to be pretty expensive by comparison to other places that we visited, perhaps its location in the centre of the main tourist strip doesn't help? We just went for the more affordable civapi which were fresh and tasty and the serve was huge, although did not come with any salad accompaniment whatsoever, just meat, diced onion and... More

This place has a great atmosphere located near the fountain. There is a wide selection of steaks, lamb, etc and the meat is served on a hot plate, cooked to perfection. The staff is very friendly and open to changes to the menu. This place is definitely worth a visit.

I felt we were caught out on the cost. I thought the menu said complementary cheese and bread to start, we were charged. We were charged for bread. It was supposed to be no smoking but this was only upstairs and what does hot smoke do? It rises, very unpleasant.
