Saw great reviews and lived near by so decided to give it a go.
Staff were undertrained, both members if staff we spoke to told us they were new to the job and were figuring things out, when I saw them ask for help from the manager he simply brushed them off and stayed sat playing games on his phone (we could see from where we were sat).

Asked for tap water with our alcoholic drinks and were given bottled water which was £4 a bottle. Both of us ordered our food medium rare, after around a 40 minute wait, a waitress came over to say she had accidentally put our orders through as well done, she was sorry but he food had been cooked now so there was nothing she could do.

Overall taste not great. It’s unfortunate when the best part of a meal is the chips.

Just wouldn’t say it’s worth going to, the food was edible but nothing more and the service was all over the place.

We don’t set crazy high standards, but this just didn’t make the cut for us.

The meat is good and the steaks are tasty, however it lacks in atmosphere and if I compare the quality of the meat with Gaucho's, it is good but not as good as Gaucho.

Having been a few times we knew the food was upto a decent standard. It’s a good place to go either as a couple or a group of you. Service is pretty good, and the food pretty consistent. I’d say it’s a little pricey for what it actually is, but for the area it’s arguably the best place you can go to for steak.

Only thing I disagree to really is the service charge being added to your bill automatically. It says it’s discretionary but you always feel a like it’s awkward to say anything less. The server was pleasant enough but if I’m completely honest it wasn’t the best!!

That said won’t stop us going there again!!

Yet another lovely meal with excellent service, child friendly too which is a bonus! The restaurant was busy - however nothing was too much trouble and there was no pressure for us to rush

Visited today for the very first time. Immediately from walking in was greeted with a smile from the manager who sat us down. The decor is bright and welcoming. Looking at the menu I didn't know what to have but after asking for a recommendation I decided to try the Tira de Ancho spiralled ribeye. When it came the presentation was impressive but what really prompted me to leave a review was the flavour. This is hands down the best steak I have ever had. The flavour was so intense yet the char on the steak left a beautifully sweet flavour to it and was cooked to perfection. The chimmichurri complemented the steak so well.
Service was exceptional and was shocked to see the restaurant was so quiet with only 1 other table in. This place should be busier. Exceptional food, great service. What more could you want?
Absolutely will be returning again.
