Really Good!!

Soo we went there to celebrate my dad's anniversary. The decoration and atmosphere was great, the food was really good and tasty. The salmon I ordered was soft and melted in my mouth! The only thing I can criticize and which really bothered me was the attention, it was kinda poor. But aside from... read more

Absolutely waste of time and money, very bad service, had to wait 15 min. although Restaurant was empty, first choice of meat was no available, no reason given why, had to choose the more expensive Angus Baby Beef. American Baby Beef full of fat, could only eat a third of the meat spending over $30. Don't waste your money in... More

We went there in order to have just one more weekend lunch, we didn't go with a high expectation about the place, although we know they are good with steaks. When we entered to the restaurant nobody was in the entrance, no host there, is this possible?the rest was almost empty, so it didn't offer you a kind of security.... More

For a city that has so much seafood, finding a steakhouse was a pleasant surprise. There were a lot of families, however this was perfectly suitable for a business dinner. The service was outstanding and for non-Spanish-speakers, the waiters were fully bilingual in English and Spanish. The steaks prepared just right. Even better, it was a terrific value, and both...

What a great restaurant. The food was excellent and the waitors went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to answer any questions we had. We went for a selection of meats served on a hot plate, along with a selection of sides. Try this place - you won't be disappointed.

Amazing steaks (try the Cuadril), great salad, and even the relishes are a notch above. Superb quality at a reasonable price, and friendly service.

My husband and I moved to San Isidro a few months ago and we came across Baco y Vaca one evening when looking for somewhere for dinner. We have been back a couple times because the high-quality, well-prepared food, the nice wine list, the fair prices, and the nice atmosphere (better than other steak houses in the area.) You won't...
