“Great food, great service, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Visited La Vaca last night and had the best food combined with the best service I've had in a long time. Great starters followed by a sirloin steak which was perfectly cooked with amazing seasoning and side dishes to die for. The staff were happy to oblige our poor attempts at speaking Spanish and were both patient and friendly.

Cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you for a great night!

“No Frills Establishment But a Great Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

Went hear on the spur of the moment. At that time the place was quiet and they fitted three of us in. The place livened up quite quickly and was soon quite full with a reasonable atmosphere. The layout and furnishings are cheap and cheerful as if to represent a South American taverna but it's clean and tidy. We went because we wanted a nice steak and we weren't disappointed. You can see your steaks cooked on an open grill and when they arrived they were spot on. The staff were attentive and pleasant and the bill was reasonable. This isn't the place to go if you want posh but if it's a great tasting cut of steak at a fair price then head on down and enjoy

“Not as good as previous visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We were so impressed on a previous visit that we arranged our overnight stop this time to revisit. The steaks had a very nice flavour but we think they were rushed. We were very surprised that they arrived so quickly - my wife's 'medium' steak was bleeding, and when cooked a bit more it was very tough. Not at all like last time. We had noticed a young chap doing the cooking whereas on the previous occasion it was someone older. We wondered if he was standing in without adequate knowledge / skill. Disappointing - and the prices had gone up. Incidentally, the sides were very good, especially the chips.

“Great steak night!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Recently went to La Vaca where we had a 16oz T-Bone and 12oz Sirloin. Beautifully cooked tender steak perfectly seasoned. You have to pay extra for sides but the chips complement the steak and a salad adds the finishing touch. Didn't try the wine this time but the Estrella Damm on tap was good.
Limited dessert options but the creme brûlée was good. Friendly service that wasn't too pushy but efficient nonetheless. Recommended!
