Some Mexican friends recommended this restaurant to me saying the steaks were great and were cheaper than they would be in most restaurants. It is located on the second entrance to Nuevo Vallarta from Puerto Vallarta, across the street from the Universidad Technologia. When you go in you go to the back of the restaurant where they have their butcher... More

You pick your meat in back with butcher.they weigh it,then you pick your side and pay.No one explained concept, so we were little lost. We Wanted wine, drinks,but you order that at table ,and pay again.they bring your steak in a styrofoam container they originally put the raw one in. Why not serve this on the plate? Didn't care for... More

We have eaten here before. This trip we had friends with us. This is not a fancy place. We were excited for our friends to dine here. No one was disappointed. The quality of the meat was great and the steaks were cooked to perfection. We had the mushrooms, salad, and potato. No one left hungry. The other couple felt... More

Good food, good service, amazing prices. Friendly atmosphere, but VERY NOISY if you sit outside. The traffic can make conversation impossible without yelling. But try it at least once for a very unusual dining experience

To be fair, there are 2 or 3 places in Puerto Vallarta that have decent beef but you'll pay through the nose. With the recent devaluation of the peso, we paid 18USD for 2 people for a vasco (sp?) (excellent) cut and a rib eye, both an inch thick, 2 HUGE baked potatoes (this is an a la carte place),... More

Great concept. Once seated (in or out) they bring you some warm beans in a cup. Then you go to the back where the butchers counters is. They have a list of a dozen or more cuts of meats. You order the type and tell the butcher how big a piece you want. Then you take it, to the cashier... More

The food was EXCELLENT!!! We paid $280 pesos for two people and ate like kings! The steak was good quality and delicious. Also the queso fundido was awesome! Good service and a close restaurant if you're staying at Bucerias or Nuevo Vallarta. You get to pick how much meat and what cut/type you want. Then they cook it for you.... More

Where else - not just here in the bay of Banderas but ANYWHERE - can you take three people out for a delicious steak dinner with a beautifully baked potato with all the garnishings, great huge plate of mushrooms sauteed in butter and garlic for UNDER $500 pesos. Our actual bill for the meal was $293 pesos and our 3... More
