A ten minute walk from the main square. Credit cards accepted. Good service. Excellent steaks. So good we went back a second time. They also did an excellent roast vegetable selection.

If you've ever eaten meat before, then El Viejo Jack is an unnecessary experience that will save you a considerate amount of money. The worst barbecue experience you can imagine will be fulfilled at this restaurant. We got the Parilla side of the menu.

It worked out about £7 each and was the biggest steak I've ever had. We definitely couldn't finish it all. The entire meal plus sides of creamy mash and... More

Had followed the recomm's of other TA users and went to this clean and friendly place. Professional service and good food. The atmosphere is rather cold, factory style big space with high ceiling. Certainly a question of preference only
