The food was great but unfortunately, the service is not at the highest level. We waited 15 min for our drinks because apparently, they "forgot" about our table but I want to mention that it was only a few clients in the restaurant so wasn't that busy.

We booked for Father's Day but sadly were not able to use the special offer advertised, however the staff brought my father and brother-in-law (also a Dad) a free large bottle of beer to celebrate. The starters were great, we really enjoyed the chorizo in wine and empanadas. My meal was huge (chicken Milanese) but everyone else had steak for which there was plenty of choice. The only criticism was that the salad came with an oily dressing which would have been nicer without.

first time here and we thought it was fantastic the food was to die for and you couldn't fault the service the staff were friendly and were always on hand if you needed anything but what I like most of all is that you were left alone to enjoy your meal there is nothing worse than a waiter asking how your meal is when you have a mouthful of food,i would recommend this restaurant and will be going back there again,the only minor fault was that it is a bit expensive but you get what you pay for I suppose

Loved this restaurant: the staff were really friendly and knew the food menu and drinks menus well so were able to make suggestions.

The rib eye steak was lovely. I had this with creamed spinach as I don't eat potatoes. It cost me an extra £1.

The steaks only come with potatoes: chips or chunky chips - so you need to order sides, such as peppercorn sauce, vegetables or salads. This bumps up the cost.

The good wine is very expensive - but for a special occasion worth the money. It was really good.

The average food bill was £47.00 per person - including gratuities as we had a large party. Most drank soft drinks. We had one bottle of wine and 4 beers. The rest were Cokes, sparkling water, etc. The restaurant provided jugs of iced water with lemon for the table.

One of the party was vegetarian - and had the pasta.

Another had the fish as they don't eat red meat.

There is something for everyone on the menu even though its a steak restaurant.

If I could have changed anything it would have been to position the tables into a square - as it was difficult to get to speak with everybody on a long table. Also as it was a Sunday it wasn't busy so this could have been done.

Will be going back with our friends in a couple of weeks' time.

Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

This is the second time we have visited this restaurant and it is without doubt the best steak meal around. Rivalled only by another well known chain, this is quality beef from well chosen stock. It’s not the cheapest meals you’ll ever have, but certainly one of the best. Highly recommended this for steak lovers.

I have not experienced a restaurant that take your starter cutlery from the empty plates and relay it for the main course!
Couldn’t work out whether short of cutlery or washing up staff!!
Whoever the reason it felt very wrong.

My son chose this restaurant for his 18th birthday meal. We were a party of 5. Very busy all evening which I thought was a good sign. Waitresses very helpful although slightly forgetful in bringing drinks and one of our tapas was brought incorrectly. However steaks were good and the sides good also. The staff did provide a celebratory cake and candle for my son which was a nice touch although when the bill arrived they did charge for it! Fair enough but most places provide something complimentary! All in all we enjoyed ourselves and I would return

Last minute booking for a dinner out in Maidstone so ended up with a late table as was almost fully booked (always a good sign), was not at all disappointed, everything from the staff, to food and drinks were lovely, we all had different starters which were great, Fillet and RibEye steaks were perfect followed by just enough room for a dessert and coffee, brilliant value and by no means the cheapest but most definitely value for money, would definitely recommend it to friends !!

The steak was unbelievable. Cooked perfectly. I only wish I had gone for the bigger size. We also wish we had a starter too but the main and desert were amazing anyway. Definitely the best steak you'll find anywhere around Maidstone. Wasn't a large or over crowded restaurant which made for a better atmosphere. Great service and will be going again soon.

I don’t really write reviews and I’ve been here so many times I’ve lost count.

However this restaurant really is absolutely lovely! I’ve tried all the variations of their steaks and their all lovely. It’s like they melt in your mouth (but that may be due to the fact that I was really hungry that night haha). But seriously, the staff are amazing and really do ensure that you’re having the best experience when you’re with them.

They’re very helpful with explaining the different cuts to help you choose the best steak of your choice too.

So thank you to the staff and the chef for best experience as always.
