No Idea, but I want the deal Pickwick got, its phenomenal! Going back in a few weeks and will give it a go. The alcohol alone comes to €100, amazing deal especially for a Saturday night

I reckon Pickwick must have got €100 off in return for the good reviews he has given them. Looking at the menu from Wolf's web site and comparing it with what Pickwick's group had it looks more like they didn't get charged for any drinks. I find it difficult to believe that a Saturday night special can give such an enormous discount - if it does then small wonder it was busy.

Had another great meal less than 2 weeks ago. We had rib eye on the special. Think the main is €18 with chips and salad. Cannot recall how much hubby paid with drinks and starters. I was absolutely stuffed, even my son in law couldn't eat any more and he has hollow legs. My husband would never pay over the odds, anyone would think he wasn't typically English. Lol

Shock - Horror !!!

Went to the Wolf for dinner last night and came away early and disappointed.

The restaurant was quiet, indeed the staff outnumbered the diners even at 8.30pm.

Tempura prawns excellent

Steaks excellent

Seafood dish of the day (Sea Bass) dry, overcooked and served with limp reheated veg and potatoes

Wine - absent. None of the wines we ordered were available - out of stock due to change in supplier ???? There are ways of managing this process without disappointing customers.

Staff, very efficient but we were over hosted to the point that we felt uncomfortable and had to politely tell them to back off.

Result - Pudding, cheese & some wine of our choice in Terroir across the road, a good move in the circumstances.

Such as in what locality as we haven't found a comparable rib eye. Defintely Argentian the tastiest.

Well mur1963 where is better value??

I agree with Licy the Agrentinian rib eye after the curried prawns as a starter are hard to beat. Will be back in CVO in a couple of weeks and will be frequenting the Wolf as it is BY FAR the best in CVO for a great steak.

Didn't know that, other than Sunday Brunch. We will be eating at the Wolf soon, but will also try some other restaurants that we have not before. We don't go out that much as we prefer to save the euros for another visit, albeit we are about to a long period as a taster for retirement. Chuffed.

It could have been brunch as it was after church.

Licy

Try Le Cro opposite the Wolf too! Really good tapas like dishes and wine matches for your selection of tapas. Tell Hugo and Marina I sent you and that I recommend the lemon/oreo cheesecake! I was the official cheesecake taster there for a while!!!!!
