My boyfriend and his friends stumbled on this place before going out round Sheffield and we have been going since. The first time me and my boyfriend went we had the sharing meal parrillada for £17.50... Bargain you get loads! 2 x 8oz Stirling steak, chorizo sausages, morcilla, pork ribs and chips. This is more than enough for 2 people,... More

I read the informaton on the website before I went and was expecting a little piece of South America in Sheffield, but if I hadn't read that, I would not have realised it was particularly a hispanic atmosphere, it was just a small place with an average menu. The food was good, but nothing out of the ordinary, certainly not... More

Steaks came perfectly cooked in the range of different preferences we had. The sides were lovely and flavoursome and there was plenty of them to go round. We did wait a little while for the food and find it a little difficult to get server attention after food had finished but they were nice pleasant staff who seemed happy to... More

Great again last night. As it was on the 28th June although that evening was nearly spoiled when a well refreshed lady, to the obvious embarrassment of her fellow guests, who i believe tipped generously, threatened staff with the police to secure her half price meal/free wine/free food/anything as long as its free! La Vaca take heart from the overwhelming... More

If there was an announcement on the news that the world was going to end tomorrow at 5pm, I would go to La Vaca to eat there one last time. And then probably go home and see my family.

I've just walked in from a lovely night once again at lavaca. I've visited this restaurant at least ten times and every time the food and service have been excellent. You literally will not get a better steak in Sheffield. I am shocked to see some of the reviews that say anything other than excellent. It proves people will moan... More

My second trip to La Vaca and I only wish id been back sooner! Nothing complicated just amazing steak, tasty sides and great value wine. With friendly staff and the owners always happy to chat I would recommend to anyone.

I can't understand the negative reviews below? I've ate her quite a few times and very recently and the food and service have always been excellent. The place makes you hungry as soon as you walk in, the smell of the open fire cooking delicious meet makes you instantly hungry. There are a great selection of sides and the meat... More

An average meal, overall. It was unusual for the side dished (halumi and spicy chips) to have been the most memorable part. The steak (sirloin) was cooked as requested, but a rather poor cut - stringy and not that flavourful. Wine was decent (and cheap to a southerner). The decor was poor, the restaurant feeling like a place that used... More
