Carnivore heaven!

We came here for a family birthday and I think I was one of the few people in our party who hadn't been here or to this type of restaurant before. I loved it! For approx £24 you get a buffet of hot and cold accompaniments (salads, vegetables, sauces, rice) and as much barbecued meat as you can... read more

I'm very please with service in this restaurant & food choice. Staff makes you feel very welcome & special. Highly recommend. Went to many Rodizios, but this is trally great. Quality & choicd of meat is the best. No need to wait or requesr, staff will take care of you very well.

A party of 4 of us visited here Saturday evening. Having visited an Argentinian restaurant in Tenerife several times which is run along the same lines of self-service salad/vegetable buffet with meat brought to and carved at the table I was looking forward to our meal. Unfortunately we were rather disappointed because the food was not up to the standard... More

Having been to El Vaquero a few times I knew what to expect. But this visit was the best visit so far. The food kept coming over. The light system is a brilliant idea. Green for keeping the food coming and red when you want a break. The salad bar was amazing and you can help yourself to as much... More

Fantastic experience, great good, great service. Eat all you want price, but there were other bits on menu, such as fish. The salad bar is amazing, as was the bbq steak meats, chicken and lamb, with spicy options in between. You had green and red buttons which you pressed throughout your meal, indicating you wanted a break, or to continue... More

Our Brazilian neighbour introduced us to this restaurant last year. We liked it so much that we went there on two further occasions when my relatives came down to stay with us. They loved it too and I can't wait for my fourth visit! The restaurant offers a fixed price menu which is an all-you-can eat meat barbecue and salad... More

Great restaurant with a continual flow of various meat dishes on skewers brought to the table. You can eat as much as you like! Good atmosphere and good service. Always busy.
