With class being finished for the week we all decided to get together for dinner to celebrate
We all pretty much arrived at the resturant at 8ish and had to wait until it opened at 8.30 before trying to get a table. Thankfully Paula's daughter came along and she speaks pretty fluent spanish so we sent her on a mission to get us a table at 8.30pm. Unfortunately just before she could get to the hostess another group of ten showed up and cheeky buggers managed to get the only table that could seat 10 in the whole resturant. No problem said the hostess - if we wait another 30mins or so she should be able to get us seated. Lovely we thought, half an hour ain't that bad so we waited, and waited, and waited, and waited. And then waited some more. Now the wait was eased by them providing us with free champagne and nibbles while we waited but we did not get seated until 11.30pm. Mark and I by this point were wasting away and thankfully the wait was worth it (well maybe not 3.5 hours but it was pretty amazing).
La Cabrerra is famous for two things - the steak and the size of the portions. Mark and I on firm recommendations from Paula decided to share a steak and i'm sure glad we did it was huge (see picture) - saying that Mark probably would have made a good attempt at going solo but I'm glad we decided to share. The meal was fab, the company was entertaining - especially Ben giving us a full blown account of why he is obsessed with Micheal Jackson. However, despite the most gorgeous steak ever, the best part of the meal had to be the giant lollypop tree that they brought to the table at the end of the meal. Genius!!
All in all a lovely evening!!!!
