Have been eating dinner here for five years and can't resist their fillet steaks, perfectly cooked to your choice and so so tender every time. You can get steaks a couple of euros cheaper in playa blanca but we've tried them and they are not quite as good. Only improvement I can think of is a few more veggies please.

Yes a nice restaurant, I would recommend this establishment. food is cooked in front of you, which I like, staff are friendly. Sangrias was excellent !!.... However I did feel the portions were rather small.... however all in all, I would return to this restaurant.

One of the better restaurants in Playa Blanca the sirloin and fillet steak were excellent and cooked to our requirements. Chicken good and vegetables were OK.Service was good and desserts were OK. Wood recommend this restaurant for a meal be it for lunch, dinner or evening meals

Ate here a couple of times as it was on the way back from town towards our hotel. The service was good and the restaurant clean. Menu was in Spanish,English and German and the prices fair. Toilets were also of a reasonable standard

I don't want to sound pretentious but if I was walking past this joint, I wouldn't have chosen it in a month of Sundays. We chose this due to the reviews when searching for an Argentinian steak restaurant, the restaurant it self is very plain and nothing to write home about, it's not on the beach front and doesn't have...

Every year we come to Lanzarote in early March and every year we have our first meal here. The menu is wide offering meats/ fish/tapas and pizza all done very well. The service is always spot on and you feel well looked after even when it is busy. Well worth a visit

If you like your fillet chargrilled to perfection accompanied by a delicious pepper sauce, here's the place to come. Fernando and Julio run this extremely popular restaurant on the 'high street' in Playa Blanca and aside from the excellent steaks, they also serve an extremely quaffable Sangria, made to their very own recipe. Worth booking in advance to get yourself... More
