Such a treat! Great steak, perfectly prepared. The burnt couscous salad is a definite! The restaurant is intimate but lively, staff attentive and on point. I have yet to have had a bad meal here, and the price point is perfect!

We both eat our steaks medium well and this restaurant did them to perfection. They were tender and flavoursome. Food arrived quickly and service was very friendly. The salad was nicely dressed and fresh. The chips were definitely hand cut and a pleasant change from...More

Probably the best steak you’ll ever eat. They serve a steak called picanya (similar cut to rump). Suitable for two adults to share. It’s unbelievable. I’ve eaten here multiple times and am pleasantly surprised each time. The manager & staff are attentive and talkative. Really...More
