Set menus was delightful. Starters where served as platters for the table giving you the ability to sample all on offer. Main course was a choice of meat, calamari and a vegetarian dish. The Rump I ordered was done to perfection. The veggies where very tasty. To top it off we where treated to a tour of the kitchen and a quick lesson in different ways to cook meat. The guide has a real passion for food and what he does. The service and atmosphere was exceptional. Highly recommended if you want a good night out with fantastic food

I always go back here to recalibrate. The steaks are great, but there's much more on the menu worth having, including the calamari and heads. The sauces are excellent - try the trio of sauces for variety, but the steaks can really be eaten straight off. Desserts are excellent - again the trios are worth having. A fine wine list. Highly recommended.
PS: ask for the tour behind the scenes.

Amazing food with generous portions. My wife and I shared the grass fed filet and the ostrich. This was the best steak I ever had and the mashed potato and onion ring sides were great additions. The ostrich was really good, too! Our server, Filippe, was very knowledgeable and helped us make a few choices that we really appreciated. He guided us through the menu and ensured we had a good time. Great service and great food. I would definitely recommend this place.
