Returned here this year. Once again the steak was of the best quality accompanied by great side dishes and drinks. Well worth a visit by anyone looking for a night away from their hotel.

Everything about this place is great! The meat is some of the best. The side dishes are wonderful and the concept is perfect! If your looking for a good steak at a good price this is the perfect place in Nuevo Vallarta.

If you're a carnivore, you will love Sonora Al Sur. These are not pre-cut steaks. The butcher cuts your steak, to your size and you pay by the the pound (kilogram actually). You tell them how you like it grilled and pick your sides. They have every cut of steak imaginable. As for great value, we got four nice sized... More

Interesting but good place for dinner. You walk the back of the restaurant and pick out your steak, and from there head to the cashier to pay for it. They then cook your steak and bring it out to your table. You then pay your servers separately for drinks, chips, beans, and sides once the meal is over. A little... More

From the outside you would not venture in! Do not let this put you off, the steaks are sensational, without doubt the best steaks anywhere is NV/PV. You choose your cut of meat, the amount you want, then they cook it as you like it, simple ! Went with my wife and 2 grown up children, had starters, massive steaks,... More

What a fantastic break for the repetitive nature of staying at a resort. IMO if you're going out for dinner, this is a place to do it for sure!

A local steakhouse, so don't expect prime ribs and fancy decor. That said - the service was solid, it was air conditioned (a big plus for a local place), and it's EXCELLENT value for the price. You can bring your own wine and there's no fee for corkage, they'll pack up your leftovers (and there will be leftovers!), and call... More
