A very lean steak (typically in limited supply, so a maximum of 2 can be ordered) with the full flavour and tenderness of the fillet.
A fillet tail steak is the thinner "tail" part of the whole fillet. It doesn't take too much cooking and is ideal for slicing and using in stir fries, for example.
Typical weight of one tail circa 300g priced at £7.50.
To be honest, I don't think fillet steak of any type needs too much fuss ... but, perhaps I don't try hard enough! There are lots of great recipes out there, for both fillet and fillet tails (see our suggestion below!).

First time I have tried fillet tails, it won't be the last. It made a very delicious dinner.
Dad said your fillet tails are always good, but these are the best to date, lean and succulent.
