The meat is great, properly cooked. Ask for a big peace to really notice de difference. Good service, efficient and naturally polite. Could improve the choices of wine. And excellent desserts.

A icon of beef well deserved in reputation. Stanish our excellent server guided us through the menu. Superb Tannat suggestion. - Q-Trip: We split the Premium Master Baby Beef at 500g. Perfecto! - Q-Trip: Go with the sweet potato. Brilliant.
