This was the best meal we had while we were in Nuevo Vallarta! The prices were great. You can bring your own wine. The staff is wonderful and takes great care of you. If you are staying at the Grand Mayan hotels, you must check it out. It is very close to the hotel.

This was by far THE BEST meal we had here and the prices were fantastic!!! We ate here 3 more times and brought our own wine. They even sang happy birthday and provided me... More

I love Sonora. My wife and I have a place in Nuevo Vallarta and we make it a point to come to Sonora on every trip. When you arrive, you get your table. Then you walk toward the back of the restaurant to the butcher shop and pick out your own steak(s) from the shop. Pick cut, size, and how... More

We had the best meat and very helpful service here. We took our own wine and had it corked there- no charge with a smile. We tried the salad- located at checkout in to go boxes- it was plenty for two and it was really good. Wished I would have bought another to go and had it for lunch the... More

Cannot believe the quality, quantity, taste, tenderness and priceof the mea we just had here. Unfortunately we just discovered this place yesterday otherwise we would have eaten here several times. We each selected our cuts of beef and cannot say enough great things about what we ate. All cuts were tender and fantastic. Sides included mushrooms with a garlic sauce,... More

Like many reviews on this restaurant - fantastic. Seriously you can take your own wine, pick your own steak, share sides with friends. One of the best steak dinners in the area. We will now make it one of our go to places when we visit Nuevo Vallarta. Staff very friendly. Restaurant clean and the atmosphere is great. Three of... More

People say you can't get a decent steak in Mexico, this place will destroy the myth! Go there with fun in mind as you go to the butcher and select the cut and size portion of meat you want. Then go to the checkout, order your sides and pay for it and go to your table. A cup of bean... More

We come for the experience of choosing our own steak from the butcher and then adding a salad and baked potato. We share both the salad and potato as the are huge. We add our own bottle of wine that we can bring and they do not charge a corkage fee. I believe they do serve beer but no other... More
