This is an excellent meat restaurant. Although they have a full menu, most people tend to order beef that is thinly sliced and brought to you raw along a very hot plate where you can cook it yourself the way you want. The quality of the meat is exceptional, and you really don't need much more than that.

This a relatively small restaurant, which always seems to be tightly packed, but they run it very efficiently and are very friendly and welcoming - even if you don't speak Spanish ;-)

This resturant is near the park in the city center.
We had dinner that was very good. The first dishes were local food that was great. The meat was super. Served on hot plates for you to cook the way you want.
Atmosphire was also good.
This is a place to visit again

Very good meat and service. The food very good and you can cook your own meat directly in front of you.

This place was recommended by a work colleague. We all really enjoyed the meal, went straight to the main and ordered 2kg of steak between the four of us which came with French fries. You cook the thinly cut slices of steak yourself on hot stones. Would recommend, nice atmosphere and a good night had by all.

absolute treasure; nicely situated near the Royal Palace, relaxing ambience, charming helpful staff, simple sensible menu
niche restaurant specialising in quality beef which one cooks to one's taste on an hot plate; charming sociable evening with a very reasonable wine list
highly commended (this would get a rating of 9 out of 10, nothing is perfect)
