Argentinean

Vaca Argentina - Vallarta is an Argentinean steakhouse. This restaurant has been in operation for over ten years, and continues its success though its incredibly delicious cuisine. The interior is bright, with brick columns lining the dining room and bright red windows bringing a splash of color to the seating area. Asador La Vaca Argentina honors the famous tradition of Argentinean steakhouses by putting the beef and steak dishes front and center. The other specialty of the house is wine, and while Asador La Vaca Argentina has both French and Spanish varieties there are several Argentinean wines available too.

Salmon was delicious and one order was enough for two. They graciously served it in two plates. Traffic is noisy when dining outside but we prefer it there.

We celebrated a milestone birthday. Everything was top notch and everyone enjoyed themselves. Initially was worries it will be too casual like as sports bar, but it was nice inside and food was very good. Would highly recommend the place.

Everything was outstanding. Our server was tentative and friendly. One thing to note is there is no shortage of staff at this restaurant, everyone was super on top of it and very quick with service. Food highlights are the bone marrow and lobster special! It was our anniversary and we were treated to a lovely molten chocolate cake with sparklers. Could not recommend this place more.

Me dejó mucho que desear el NY steak que pedi termino medio y me lo trajeron crudo y creo que ni un grano de sal le pusieron a la carne ya que no tenia sabor de nada.
La verdad no vuelvo a ir.

Great atmosphere, good menu options. Ordered the NY strip and shrimp. The meat was prepared under the temperature for what we ordered, but it was also not tender. Food portions were great and service was on point!

The food was fantastic. Portions were large and we ate way too much as everything was so good. We had the Ceasar salad, salmon, baked potatoe and mixed veggies. The music was also really great! Highly recommend!!

The food at this restaurant is excellent. We have come many time and also to the one in Guadalajara. The plate sizes are very large and with the excellent bread it is a lot of food to eat, but excellent food. Next time we will skip the bread so that we can enjoy our delicious meal even more. Gracias Amigos!

High quality meats, but mediocre prep and presentation. I've been multiple times, and service is slow and unfriendly. It took 20 minutes just to get a menu, and had to ask multiple times for more chimichurri. At their price point, I expect a much better experience. I won't be returning. There are plenty of other places to get exceptional steak in PV.

After 5 years of visiting La Vaca, we still think they have the best steaks. We wish they would make the side orders in 1/2 portions, we would take a bigger variety with less servings.
Yes we always recommend La Vaca to everyone.

Here is the reason it did not receive a 5 stars.
Meat was excellent- cooked the way it was asked to be served.
Waiter was trained and performed well, at safting, serving and removing dishes, opening a bottle of wine ( could have offered the cork to the host-instead he dropping it on the table), poured correctly, the right way). however, when it came to ordering the food, it would not hurt to inform the guests that side portions are large.
The place had mostly Spanish speaking guests, and it got full soon after we arrived- so reservation is a good idea- and we made one.
Price is expected for US guests, but it is not a place for everyone. Expect to drop $125- $150 dollars for two steaks and a bottle of wine.
Overall, it was a nice place to visit and enjoy a meal. Should we ever return to PV, it would be one place we would return.

We were staying at an all inclusive resort and wanted to treat ourselves to a really good dinner to celebrate our honeymoon. The staff was really friendly from the moment we walked through the door. We ordered a steak for 2 which was so huge, it could have been good enough for 3. At the end they gave us a complimentary cake that read “congratulations”!. We loved the food and service. Great place and also great value!!

Really enjoyed our meal. The waiter was great as he was not entertainment but facilitated the unrushed service. I would not order the artichokes as it was a lot of work, but everything else was perfect.
