Formally known as "La Portena" but it still is a Great place for delicious beef, only the name has changed. Cooked to the perfection for your palette. I salivate as I type. They have a chimmi churro that I could use on more than beef. I even dip my bread in it and add some to my baked potato. Hubby... More

Once again we were happy to return to Buenos Aires for great tasting steak, nice wines and exceptional staff. The vacio steak is tender and flavorful. It is also a great place for families with young children, there is a play yard on site. Prices are reasonable and servings are generous.

The steak was very good - not excellent - the red wine was served much too cold,the bread was fair at best and the overall atmosphere was very nice. Overall it was a very pleasant experience.

We absolutely LOVE this place, have been there many times. The meat is delicious and the huge play area for kids is perfect, both indoor and outdoor opcions to eat, a beautiful koi pond and EXCELLLENT PRICES. Our kids love it. Adult menu most plates under 200 pesos.(approx 15usd) for excepcional food. Highly recomend as a "must" in Vallarta!

We are back in Nuevo Vallarta after being away for six months and couldn't wait to have the vacio steak again. It was as delicious as we remembered. The service was attentive and friendly as usual. It is our favorite restaurant.

My mom (55) me (31) and my son (3.5) ate here this evening. The service was impeccable. We started outside as my son loved to play in the playground and see the fish and turtles in the pond. We ordered a pizza and split the flank steak dinner (came with baked potato and salad). We moved inside when food arrived... More

We loved our meal at this restaurant. It is a little bit hard to find (the taxi driver had to call dispatch - but he found it) but worth it. Had little meat tostadas (can't recall the exact name) to start, then they brought out the tray of meats to choose. I had the Argentinean filet and my husband had... More
