The meat comes from a big open grill/ fire. We tried a burger and chicken, both super tasty. Especially the burger was nearly perfect!

Great and friendly service, the food is delicious. We always eat here when we visit. All their meat, cooked on an open fire, is cooked to perfection. Our kids loved the chicken.

This place is awesome. They cook your dinner over an amazing large open fire. The service is fantastic. So friendly. I have been twice. Had chicken the first time and steak the second time. Both super tasty. Good value for money for the portion size...More

Had a steak 🥩. They really do their craft like an art form. Watching them cook it was almost as good as eating it. Came w mashed potatoes and salad. Excellent job. Highly recommend.

Steak and grilled meat here were excellent as were the smoothies and the staff were friendly. My only grumble was that is was quite expensive, but excellent quality.

Stumbled on this restaurant when we were passing by and searching for a place for dinner, and it ended up being a highlight of our dinner dining experiences in Malpaís! Casual dining space (think checkered tablecloths and plastic chairs), mouth-watering steaks. We also loved the...More
