The Klos is a restaurant for true carnivores that's been around for around 20 years! The straight forward menu serves up large portions of quality meat with simple sides of jacket potatoes and salad. The focus here is definitely on the quality of the meat – everything else is just for the idea that you're getting a balanced diet. The clientel are a mix of locals and for some reason English tourists and expats. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal, and if you're alone you can happily sit at the bar without feeling self conscious. It won't be long before someone starts to chat – including the charming bar staff. The menu can be found on the back of the tee-shirts of the waiting staff. The only downside is that, as a result of its popularity, the queue waiting to be seated can often give you the feeling that the staff are trying to move you on, but I'm sure it's just that they're being super attentive.
