When we got to the restaurant, we were told that they did not have the meat we had asked for. Reluctantly, I instead ordered a... More

This restaurant is one that you'll want to consider starving yourself for in preparation for the amount of food, and how delicious everything is!

I come every time I am in San Pedro and have always been delighted. The best restaurant in town with exquisite meat cooked to perfection. Nice decor, clean and friendly staff.

We had lunch with my wife and my daughter-in-laws father. They had the exclusive beef cuts which they visibly enjoyed. I had grilled chicken breast superbly prepared with all the right seasonings, rice and beans and corn on the cob. Simply put, this is one of the top restaurants in San Pedro Sula.

The restaurant is quite large when you first get to it. Try sitting near the bar as you will have the best air conditioning experience (SPS is very hot). The menu gets right to the point, meat. The meat is great, they cook it well and the service is quick and efficient. Can't go wrong here.

This is the best steak house in San Pedro Sula, it is a little bit pricey but the food and service are very good. I've been there several times on business travel in town, I've order a different cut each time and all have been very well prepared and delicious, you will not regret... cheers

The. Food is really good, the amount of food served is ok. I could say is one of the best places in San Pedro Sula where you can eat meat. The problem was the service, waiters were bot very friendly and food took a little too long to arrive.

I always travel for business to San Pedro and when i want a nice steak i always go to this place. They have a lot of local and imported meats, they have great entrees and desserts. The service is very good too and they have a huge parking lot.

The best we've found in San Pedro. First, the restaurant is secure with adequate security personnel. Dark, but delightful atmosphere. The service is exceptional similar to a great restaurant in New York City. The steaks are a great quality and flavor. We definitely recommend!
