We had a lovely dinner at Char at Christmas Eve. Staff was very friendly and efficient and the food was good. We ordered a nice bottle of red wine and got to witness a flashy wine pouring to the carafe in our table. Very entertaining. Definitely worth visiting! Try the online booking, it worked well. They even sent a couple of confirmation emails in advance.

The only reason they have got two out of five is due to the service we received from the waitress. If it wasn't for her, then it would of been less!

Seven of us in total, ordered starters, salt and pepper chicken wings, no flavour at all! Other starters were okay but only two out of the party didn't have wings.

When it came to the mains, we ordered on reccomendation the galician ribeye for two, and other various steaks. Ribeye for two had to be redone due to us asking for medium, was more like rare. Second attempt was at best medium rare which we could cope with. However, hardly any meat and just mounds of fat! When we complained about it we got told the spanish like fatty steaks, well this was not advertised as a fatty steak and an apparent steakhouse could not even get the cooking of the steak perfect! The other steaks were also fatty and chewy, worst steak the whole party had ever tasted!

Spoke to the manager and all he said was "okay, sorry" then disappered. Considering the whole meal cost over €500 before they knocked 30% due to the poor meal, it was the worst steakhouse we have ever been to!

If you want a decent steak go to La Martina, argentinian steakhouse. Char is not a steakhouse and should be ashamed to call itself one.

Staying in the village for a week arriving Christmas Eve we booked dinner here in August! Glad we did as they were booked up into January 2017! Immaculate restaurant, impeccable service and fabulous food. The squid starter was delicious and amazing steaks!

Fantastic starter and great service main course was good but lack of vegetables just took the edge off an otherwise excellent evening
