I went with my family on a Sunday night. As soon as the waitress came she explained the meat cuts, so far so good, then we ordered a bottle of wine that was $40, her face changed completely maybe she was expecting us to spent more. She took the order and we shared parrillada and skirt steak (portions are huge)... More

As frequent travellers to South Beach we decided too go with 4 of us to this restaurant. It really is a shambles but nevertheless still a popular place , i do not know why. We were hesitant because of some of the negative reviews but decided to still give it a try. The music was too loud , it took... More

The worst service and stressful experience. Besides the hard to find parking, all this place care about is your money: they will do whatever takes to overcharge you, make you order more food than humanly possible to eat, will apply any gratuity they want ( but don't deserve) and no matter how reasonable you try to be, they will never...

Its a good place to have dinner, but every side dish is charge separately. The waiter didnt care to much about us purchasing the house wine. She really want us to spend more money on another wine. But the house wine was $32.00 per bottle and it wasn't bad.

... but by all means go to las Vacas Gordas if you are into disgustingly huge portions of shoe-leather beef and side dishes equally large and poorly prepared. If a cow is going to give up his life to end up on a plate - it shouldn't be at this restaurant. Not to be outdone by the poor quality food,... More

Group of 4 went here and loved it. We both got the rolled up steak and it was perfect. Rice, fries were great. We can't wait to go back!

Ate here with a party of 4 the night Argentina made the World Cup final, so it was a fun atmosphere to say the least. It's a small, loud place so if that's not your bag go somewhere else. We were with someone who had been there before, so he ordered two beef rolls for a party of 4, and... More

The food was decent, but very overpriced. Customer service was terrible; the server did not speak any English, and "assumed" I wanted the more expensive provoleta, without explaining to me it was the more expensive item on the menu. I clearly pointed to the plain provoleta and she brought the other one instead. She accused me of not telling her... More

We love this restaurant and eat here at least twice whenever we are in Miami. Huge portions, reasonable prices, delicious food, and a great place to celebrate a birthday. For a birthday, eat inside for the full experience. The red Sangria here is a must and if you like chimi churi sauce, their homemade bowl of sauce that is on... More
