I went to La Hacienda during a visit with one of my vendors in San Salvador. The restaurant is very nicely decorated, like a hacienda, with a beautiful tile floors and nice layout. The service is superb and the food delicious. We had the chicharrones as appetizers which I mistakenly thought they were pieces of fried pork fat because that... More

Nice restaurant with great service. Food was tasty and the restaurant staff very accommodating to our tables requests. $$$ of 5 by American standards (approx. $25 to $35 per person). Worth a visit if you are looking for a nice place to take the family or a date.

You will not regret going to this place. It's a tad pricey ($28 per head at the very least with a drink). Their specialties are beef cuts. I've been there a couple of times and have been happy with it. One of the times we went, we had their wine special which was okay. I definitely agree with the others... More

I recently visited Hacienda Real with a business party and the experience was a pleasant one. First, the food was excellent as always. I had not made up my mind between choosing between a steak or seafood (seafood at a steak restaurant, you might wonder?). Since I like seafood very much, the waiter gave me the option of a mixed...

Wonderful restaurant in San Salvador. The meat was really, really tender and tasty. Perfectly cooked with nice sauces. Great chimichurri. A lot of options at great prices, at least for Europeans.

I already visited Hacienda Real at Tegucigalpa and Guatemala City, so i decided to visit this restaurant in El Salvador... same quality as the other restaurant, services was great and the food excellent. Hardly recommend it.

My experience is limited because there was no english menu and noone spoke english and my spanish doesn't extend to different kinds of steaks, so I didn't order one of the more expensive ones. Look, the food was good - the sauces were nice and the soup to start was good but I don't think it was overly special.

Probably the best steak in town. The Entrana Real Tipico is a delicious meal with regional flavor. The bar makes a tasty Michelada! Service is prompt and friendly. It's a good restaurant for a crowd or an intimate dinner for two.

Not as good as the original restaurant from Guatemala. I ordered a puyaso, medium, and received a rare meat, crude. The same happened with another person in our table, but with the entraña. The portions are really poor, one would think they serve more for what they charge. The prices are too high for what they offer. Not woth it.... More

I was recently in San Salvador for business and was my first time to El Salvador. When in a new city I always head to Tripadvisor to see the suggestions of other travellers. As one of the top ranked restaurants in San Salvador this seemed like a safe bet for the first night. This place well and truly held up... More
