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.
