I won't forget this place in a hurry. Pity if you're a vegetarian lol. Your order any steak any size you want, then you tell them how you want it cooked and what accompanied vegetable dishes you want. All very well cooked all staff very attentive and disgustingly cheap.

This restaurant is perfect for anyone staying at the Grand Luxxe. It's only a 5 minute taxi ride away. We both ordered filets from the meat counter. The meat was then taken to a charcoal pit and cooked to order. The meat was so tender and flavorful. The side dishes are generous portions that you can share. We had a... More

It was an experience. When you get there you go to the back where there is a butcher you pick your meat and he slices how much you want. Then you go to your table where you can get beer or soda. Most of the steaks were very tender. You can order sides of potatoes, mushrooms and other vegetables. You... More

Great for us Carnivores! Indoor air conditioned and outdoor covered seating - Pick your cut and size from the butcher, order some sides and sit down to hot bean soup, crispy tortillas and choice of sauces. Order some beer, soda or water and relax. I haven't had all the sides (yet!) but do recommend the baked potato and the mac... More

Sonora al Sur was excellent and recommended to us by a taxi driver. Tons of meat and sides to select from. They also have wine and beer. The kitchen staff even let us try to make a tortilla! Our waiter was bilingual and was able to explain everything to us very clearly. Prices were more than reasonable and I would... More

Good meats, good porterhouse, but no so good ribeye. Good service! The Mac and cheese is average, the beans were very good!

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.

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
