It was my wife’s birthday and I brought a small cake in and asked for the staff to come out later with the candles and sing happy birthday, which they did beautifully. Very much appreciated the effort from them. Thank you so much for a lovely night. Can’t wait to go again.

We went for my partners birthday meal. The staff are really kind and helpful. We were so hungry so we ordered burger and chips with some veg. And the burger was so bland the chips were nice. We ordered quite a few cocktails which tasted like toilet water. Really watered down with little taste but nice to look at. Although got you drunk very quickly. Felt horrible after. Wouldn’t recommend although my partner said was ok

I had dinner here with my sister and we both really enjoyed the whole experience- the service was exceptional, our starter and intro were served in about 30 minutes after ordering and our main came a while after that, we shared a bread board, some empanadas and the Buenos Aires sampler which is a bit dear, but definitely worth it if you want to find out which steak you prefer the most! Anyways the steaks were all cooked to the chefs recommendation and they turned out beautifully, that I don't think I've ever tried to savour a meal so much before! I'll definitely be eating here again

Have been going here for many years now and it has always been a very good, if a little expensive, experience.

Tonight, although the food was good, the service was distinctly below average and not what we were expecting.

Waiters forgetting to bring out our starters order and then expecting us not to be bothered and wanting us to rush straight to our mains!!! Sorry, no and we asked for what we had ordered to be brought out although it seemed too much trouble for the lady in charge and she took forever to bring them.

Completely forgot about us with our desert menus and rather than wait any longer than the 10 minutes we already had, I asked for the bill!!

The head waiter was somewhat surprised when I asked her to remove the service charges that she had already added to our bill!!!! Unbelievable! Maybe she should read this review back!!

Won’t be going here again, which is a shame as it used to be so very good. Not any more I’m afraid.👎👎

Stunning food as always, top quality meat, the steaks are phenomenal. The staff were all very friendly and attentive. Although they were fully booked and it was Valentine's day, it wasn't too noisy and loud.

During dinner a strong pungent smell permutated through the restaurant on making an enquiry i was informed it was a type of Argentine cheese being cooked , is there no extraction in the kitchen ?? it may be an aquired taste to some, but it was most offensive to my party otherwise all was perfect.

We've been coming here for a while, and it was one of our favourites. Expensive, but always great food, and just always really well cooked. This might be really picky, but they've taken fries off the menu and only do thick chips. We love fries, especially the ones you used to do here, there was just something about them that was great. The thick chips were so oily that we didnt really eat them. I feel like you've also changed your peppercorn sauce, it just wasnt as tasty.
A little disappointed, and there are a few other restaurants in maidstone that might just pip you to the post now.

We were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and with 5 children we saved hard for our night out i wrote amd told them it was a special night and would appreciate maybe some petals or anything on the table.... we areived early so we could enjoy a drink before when the floor manager came to day we could sit at our table àt 7.20 even tho ours was booked for 8 she was not impressed amd huffed off..... she was rude to her bar staff whilst one was trying to train the other.....
Rheb when we were seated our starter came which was tiny and not being rude but our waitress absolutly stunk of BO we then waited 45 mins for our main and it was not nice.... beef was so chewy and my partner chicken was so dry we didnt even bother with desert all the while the waitress was hovering and really putting us off the food with the cleaniness.... really disappointed and upset

Great food. Service was slow at times, Our table water was forgotten and we had to chase up the sauces we requested. Not enough to ruin our meal, but there is room for improvement

The steak was amazing, melt in the mouth, service generally was good although a bit rushed/flustered. One waitress came after us as we forgot our jumper - thank you!
The only criticism is the blue cheese sauce, it tasted more like cream then blue cheese but apart from that the food and wine was amazing! Thank you

Sat at table next to front door and every time someone came into the restaurant or walked past our table we got a gust of freezing cold air which made our visit uncomfortable. The food was lovely and service was good too. Definitely would go again but would request to sit further into the restaurant.

This is a beautiful Restaurant with amazing Steaks to offer. The atmosphere is relaxing and calming.
The prices are rather high but your paying for amazing steak what else do you expect. This is a place to take your other half for a birthday or something special.
The Cocktails are rather nice also. I do recommend.

Really good food and friendly staff. However would say it’s pricey. Also don’t like how a tip is automatically added at the end of the bill.
