Beautiful steaks

Cannot rate the food highly enough- I ordered the 12oz sirloin steak and it was cooked exactly the way I ordered it, and despite the restaurant being full I didn't experience the long wait others have talked about. The wedges with cheese and the cous cous stuffed bell pepper were also perfection.

Came here due to friend's recommendation. We were not disappointed. Steak cooked to perfection and the variety of sides we shared were delicious. I have also now been converted to eat black pudding as their starters of black pudding balls were delicious.

If your a bit bored of the standard pub style of steak this is a really good choice. Really good seasoned South American style steak and some really distinctive sides and starters.

Visited on Saturday with the family and the food was incredible, however I was upset that after 2hrs we were asked to leave the table as the next party had arrived. We hadn't been told there was a limit on the table. We then had to stand in the entrance to finish our drinks. When we are paying £200 for... More

Hello customer apologies for the mix-up here it is policy on Friday and Saturday night that tables booked before 8pm will be required back within 2 hours - you obviously weren't told that so we are totally to blame and apologise wholeheartedly. There is a bar area where I believe the staff said you could move to to finish your... More

Good steak in this Chilean based restaurant, nice waitress but the chef, unfortunately placed at the entrance appears to enjoy being unpleasant to clients, evidently wants to get a reputation for surliness. Small restaurant big steaks. Be prepared for a long wait eg 45 min plus which makes their free childrens meal offer tricky with young ones. Generally tasty fod... More

Hello customer apologies for your unpleasant experience this chef in question had handed in his notice that morning and I believe his rudeness was a deliberate attack on the management. Don't worry if you come again you won't see him!! More

If you like steak then this is the place to visit. You have a range from an 8oz sirloin to a 40oz porterhouse, not tried this yet!! Cooked to perfection on an open grill in the restaurant. Rodrigo and Gloria who own and run La Vaca are fabulous hosts and hands on working, not just being a boss!

I deliberately found out La Vaca having read the good reviews on TA and it certainly didn’t disappoint. The steak, 12oz ribeye, was so succulent and more tender than most fillets, more like a Kobe, accompanied with a green salad and grilled tomatoes, followed by the chocolate brownie and ice-cream - delicious!. This was swilled down with a large glass... More

Went here again last night. The new menu is fantastic. More cuts of beef and new starters. This is the best steak I have had in the UK. It is AWESOME! Good staff complements the amazing food. No negatives at all. Just hope that they don't change anything now or start putting the prices up anymore as I think it... More
