Where do you start!! Quite simply one of the best dining concepts anywhere! So you go in get your table and from the off you feel right at home, self service hot and cold buffet for salad, chilie, breads etc.... Then the good bit......, You press the green light on your table for the waiters to keep serving and red... More

I've been with a friend on a couple of occasions, I then took my family and I will be taking my bf! The food is outstanding, including the drinks (red Shiraz especially) and the staff are extremely friendly and accommodating, they really put themselves out for you. It is definitely my favourite restaurant and I can’t see that I’d ever... More

Fantastic restaurant, All you can eat of meat! is basically awesome. You can order as much as meet as you want. Some is decent, some is very good. I suggest the lamb and the uruguayan beef. And the price is not that high, i would say is medium. Too bad is very far from my house. I don't think is... More

My wife and I had our first visit to El Vaquero today and we were very impressed. There was a good selection of fresh, interesting and well prepared salads and non-stop service of delicious meat dishes delivered by very polite staff. We would certainly visit again.

My boyfriend and I cannot get enough of this restaurant: love the food!!! From the food bar to the cocktails to the meat itself everything is delicious and fresh! The booking system doesn't leave room for disappointment either! A bit pricey but that's quality you are paying for :)

We went for dinner at El Vaquero in Whetstone last night, it was the first time I had been to this one as I had only visited the old El Vaquero in the equestrian centre Mill Hill. The restaurant is very modern and clean. Our table was booked at 7 but were told we may have to leave for a... More

It was with some trepidation that I discovered my friends had booked a meat restaurant as the husband is veggie. No need to worry. He enjoyed a sumptuous buffet of pasta and salads and was almost as full as his carnivorous friends who ate and ate and ate and ate.... We ladies ate slightly less but discovered that we could...

We had a birthday celebration here. As a vegetarian, I was concerned that such a meat-based restaurant would not serve my needs at all. I needn't have worried. The salad bar brimmed with many excellent vegetarian options. My friends - both carnivores - dined enthusiastically on the endless array of beef and lamb options. The servers were prompt and pleasant,... More

Looking for a place suitable for a range of ages - thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Started with cocktails - which were a bit like alcoholic slush puppies (not cheap, but we were celebrating). We helped ourselves to salads - a little disappointing, plenty of choice, but all a bit tasteless. The real star of the show is the meat -... More
