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

If you are a meat lover this place is for you. The wait staff was extremely welcoming and helpful from the time we walked in the door until we left. Our 1/2 order included 4 steaks on a grill on the table. It's open air at the front and fun to watch the traffic go by. Worth every penny or... More

A group of five of us wanted to eat off the resort - we had heard good things about this restaurant so decided to give it a try. Coming from beef country in Alberta, we know and love our beef and I can say we were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. All five of us raved about the tenderness of... More

I had dinner at the El Vaquero on the recommendations of a friend. A great recommendation it was. The rib eye steak was cooked to perfection. The service was exceptional and the ambiance noteworthy. Rather pricy but all considered, well worth the price. I will visit again when in town.

You must have their arrachera - steak made the Mexican way! It's fabulous. Rather than a baked potatoe with it, it comes with a cooked onion - delicious - and again, the Mexican way! There are two locations - one on the main street close to Walmart, and one further down the street towards Manzanillo. The one further down the... More

The steaks are very good. The portions are huge. We had leftovers for the next day. It is close to the hotels.

If you are looking for a great steak, look no further. Not only are there many steak choices from which to choose, whatever you decide, you will be a satisfied customer. The service is another thing that makes this restaurant a standout.

Ordered the steaks and the wine. The service was good so were the steaks, but besides that, nothing spectacular, simply a good steak and that's it. But what else would you expect to eat in a steak house? It's a little overpriced.
