“Good place for a beer and steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

La Pampa is a restaurant in San Salvador with three or four branches. While some have a great view of the city (Escalón), others are just next to the street. Regardless, the meat is tasty and plentiful, and beer is cold. A good combination. Also, the menu has great variety, and the value is on the plus side, but affordable. Breakfast is great also.

On the let down, perhaps the vegetables as a forced side dish (you can't choose another side dish without paying extra) limit your options, but there are nice others (like the plantain, cheese and beans).

Good choice, affordable, tasty. Recommended.

“Value for money.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

OK atmosphere, pretty good meat and well priced - good rather than average. I've been with friends a few times and never left feeling disappointed. Well priced - I'll go again.

“Great steak!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

Went here as a group of 8. Steak was excellent, service was very good, friendly, attentive. Sides pretty good. Overall I prefer hacienda real better but the steak was much better here. Spent about $30 per person with all including tip, a bit pricey but not too bad. Very high quality steak. For very good steak and service in san salvador, this is the place to go.
