Went here for a steak and our expectations were fully met. Oversized, deliciously grilled ribeyes served with sides of our own choice (mixed salad and french fries). Tender and cooked as ordered. Rich wine list with mostly US wines of high quality.

Steaks done to perfection, and the one that wasn't - was promptly dealt with by the Manager (we didn't even complain really). Overall and excellent experience.

We considered ourselves lucky when we found Bobby Vans just up from our hotel. Caters for most meals with quick classics or more formal options. Service was quick and friendly and food quality excellent.
