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.

Way better than the Sonora Prime "Disco" at the marina. Great service, decent prices for what you get (share a steak and a side) . Will return

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.

Amazing good! We ordered too much but wanted to try a few things. Every dish was worth it. Note, if it is 2 people one app and 2 entrees or 2 starters and 1 entree plus 2 sides is enough. Amazing overall!

We spent several weeks in Puerto Vallarta and went to Vaca Argentina on two occasions .... once for lunch and once for dinner. Both times were exceptionally positive experiences although the restaurant is significantly livelier at dinner. They cook their meats to perfection, but it is important to keep in mind that their cuts are very different from what you may be accustomed to so it's important to ask for clarification. We highly recommend the artichoke appetizer. The atmosphere is very lively although it's a bit louder than I would prefer and I don't quite understand why they have TVs everywhere given that it's a higher end restaurant. As with every restaurant we went to in Vallarta, the service is fantastic.

It was bad service from beginning to end. We had a party of 6 and were celebrating a birthday and anniversary. We were seated and then no one ever came to check on us. After 10 minutes, I had asked who our server was. Someone then came and took our drink order. We then waited another 10-15 minutes for our drinks. Our waiter took our order and then never came back until the food was brought out. While we were eating AGAIN our server never checked on us. We had to find him and ask for the bill. We all paid separately and again waited a long time for the waiter to bring our change back. He never asked how we were, how was the food, if we needed anything…..nothing!! The way we were treated felt very racial and we will never visit again.

Everything was wonderful. Lived in Argentina for 13 years and the closest I've tasted. Even the beer. Would be nice if you had Quilmes, but still good. Only thing missing on the menu was empanadas. :)
