The meat they cook over an open wood griddle is superb and always of exceptional quality. I've eaten there several times and never been disappointed. The steaks are Argentinian with a lovely flavour. The 'freebies' that they supply between courses are also good.

Very good grill restaurant with fantastic steaks and also fish. Nice ambiance inside and friendly service. In the summer season make a reservation as it is very busy and make the reservation to have your dinner in the garden as inside is hot because of the large grills.

Went here for the evening with friends. So pleased they recommended it as it has to be one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. The service was 1st class and it was busy so you need to book. The tables were nicely spread out so you aren't on top of each other. Everything about the evening was amazing... More

This restuarant is in the Montgo area of Javea, just on the road to the village of Jesus Pobre. We were staying with friends nearby underneath the Montgo, so were pleased to see a highly rated restaurant close by. It was very atmospheric and had a ranch type vibe to it, also it was packed on the evening we visited.... More

Absolutely terrific - excellent quality of steak, delightful atmosphere including live music that doesn't drown out conversation. Will always rate this as a favourite even though it's a bit pricey. Make sure you book !
