“a night away from the All Inclusive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Our hotel food was, well, hotel food. We needed a meal away. We looked up the top steak houses and this was one of them. It was great! The shrimps were BIG, the steaks tasty and the wine was perfect. I didn't want to go eat dinner at the hotel again :(. I saw some reviews about price...you have to spend money for good food.

“The Best Steaks in N.V.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We visited Primo on our last night, which was a great idea. We both ordered the rib eye, which was one of the largest, and best cooked I've ever witnessed. The service and atmosphere were worth the trip alone! Make sure you take a trip to Primo 159.

“Share your steak, save money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

A decent steak that comes in large portions (14 oz.), so my wife and I shared a New York steak at 280 pesos. The waiter had no problem dividing the meal into separate plates. We also split an included side of garlic mashed potatoes and added a tasty mushroom side for another 80 pesos. Throw in large bottled waters and we ate well for about $35. The service was prompt and the atmosphere was quite nice, with outdoor tables overlooking water near the marina.

“Mediocre and Expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We were a party of 4 and went to Prime 159 because we had a coupon for a 1000 peso (around $80) discount. Two of us ordered the filet which was good and prepared well, one of us ordered the sirloin which was a little fatty even for sirloin, and one of us ordered the prine rib which was inetible because even the "lean" areas were riddled with fat. The sides which accompanied the beef were worse than mediocre. And the bill was $160 even after our discount (and no one had much to drink).

The service was excellent and the setting is nice, but there are much better options in the area.
