4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Cannot understand the recent 2* review! Hug variety and all options are delicious in my humble opinion!! Friendly service, and a good supply of delicious food. For 5*, I'd like to see them grow the salad buffet a bit and work on a more steady flow of meat being brought out. It can sometimes be a little inconsistent : too... More

Had a fantastic 50th birthday meal with the family. Food was excellent, great service and a nice birthday touch with the cake and sombrero 😀. Will definitely be revisiting.

novelty place which definitely would not visit again, it sounds amazing for £25 per head and eat much as you can but how quality the meat could be when its given to you without limit also the 15 types of meats that are given only 2 of them are decent

Other reviewers have covered most of the bases, but you don't have to have meat, meat and more meat. My husband and I chose the fish option for just under £20 fixed price. We were asked in advance whether we wanted sea bass, salmon or sea bream. We both had sea bream which was brought to the table with a... More

The food here is lovely, it just keeps on coming until you switch on your red light to show you are full or taking a break. Waiters come around with huge skewers offering a wide variety of meats and even barbecued pineapple which is actually delicious! With an extensive salad bar/buffet this restaurant surely caters for all. The only downside... More

We have visited this restaurant a few times before but not in the last year, still doesn't disappoint, great atmosphere, we were here to celebrate our son's birthday, he loved it especially when they bought him out a cake and sang him Happy Birthday, plus the cowboy hat he got to wear, lots of fun. If you enjoy your meat... More

We've never been to a restaurant quite like this and it was great fun! In a modern setting El Vaquero is South American themed. A set price menu based on meat gives you access to a well stocked salad bar which you can visit as much as you like and then providing you have your green light lit on your... More

Not much more to say. The meat keeps coming, so make sure you starve yourself for a day before going for dinner. Everything tastes great. Quality of the produce is high and the service is very good. Everything is explained and you are never left waiting. Great choice for a night out for a special treat.
