Very yummy steak!!

This place is really cool! It was recommended to us by one of the front desk gals. You pick your own steak, thickness and how it is to be prepared, then you pick all of your sides. The food was really delicious and the service was bar none. It's not a fancy place and only has outdoor seating, but... read more

This place isn't fancy or have a great view but the food is great. The hard part is deciding what type of meat you want on the grill - you head up to the butcher's display case and it all looks very fresh and inviting. My husband and I had rib eye and the girls had fillets - all of... More

After reading reviews, knew what to expect and wow was I surprised. When they say to share what accompanies the steak they are not mistaken. Being from atlantic Canada I have never seen such big potatoes and along with them the portabello mushrooms and steak were all to die for. The price is unbelievable, one person cannot eat in Canada... More

We are staying at a AI in the area and decided that we needed something different. We have read about this place in TA and gave it a try. As in other reviews there was no issue bringing our own bottle of wine. Staff were great in walking us thru the whole process, pick your steak, cut and preparation....too easy.... More

This was a restaurant some friends took us to when celebrating my birthday. I have found that the Mexican and Italian food in Mexico is fantastic, but have had trouble finding really good steaks or other beef centered entrees. Sonora al Sur in Nuevo Vallarta solved that problem. You choose your own cut of meat including the thickness. One caution;... More

Casual atmosphere, You go to the meat counter and order what kind of steak, (tenderloin, sirloin, new York, t bone etc.) Then go pay order any extras , potatoes, salad mushrooms etc. pay the cashier, next thing you know there is your food. They cook it outside over a grill. Heck of an operation. Do not miss this if you... More

Pick your cut, the size, the sides (sides can be easily shared) how you want it prepared, pay for it and head back to your table. There will be salsa and beans waiting for you Although they do offer wine, you are free to supply your own

If you like beef this is definitely the place to have dinner, situated just outside the gates to Nuevo resort on the Valle Dorado road. You sidle up to the beef bar and order the cut & size of meat you want & there is ANY cut of beef that you desire. The man cuts you a slab off of... More

wow, what a place. Every time i holiday in Puerto Vallarta i MUST make sure i get time to eat at Sonora. It's one of the best steak houses in town. You must try the baked cheese as well as the baked potato, you can also bring your favorite bottle of wine if you so desire. Highly recommend this restaurant... More
