Wonderful ambiance and food. Best steaks grilled to perfection. Dine in open air or climate controlled comfort.

We visited El Vaquero a few nights ago. We arrived at 7:00 pm, which is early for Mexico, and were promptly seated. We ordered some margaritas and waited for our friends to arrive. The meals come with a bean soup, which the server tried to serve us before anyone else arrived. We indicated that we would like to wait until... More

We were brought here by a friend that lives in Manzanillo. The steaks were delicious. Staff was great.

We didn't really have a meal there -- just appetizers and drinks when we met up with my brother. But it was excellent service and a beautiful restaurant. We're going back to Manzanillo in February 2015, so we'll have to go there for a nice meal.

This is the place for MEAT. The steaks are large, they are tender, fixed to your specification and oh, so delicious. Prices are about what you would pay at a good steak house in the states (not one of the Ruth Chris or other big name sports star types). Prices range from around $19 to $29 US depending on the...

The food was absolutely awesome here, a true meat lovers paradise. The restaurant looked good with a small band playing in the corner, service was good. But when we got the check, everything was written in Spanish and the price appeared to be way too high. They had added 3 extra main courses and around 5 drinks to our order,... More

We went there as a party of 8. We chose to sit on the 2nd floor which is open to the outside with a view of the bustling street. We were set up and placed drink and food orders and then the mosquitos came! We asked to be moved downstairs and inside and we were accommodated quite quickly without any... More

The restaurant looks good from the outside, nice ambiance in the inside. Especially on the first floor! Nice live music and a view on the avenue. The food/meat is very good, service is also good. We had two dishes in our group that were a little bit too spicy. Without hesitation they food was prepared without the peppers. Everything comes... More
