Consistently great meals. Staff are friendly, professional and saw to our needs. Tony was attentive, answered all our questions and truly was a great representative of the restaurant. The salads, soup and escargot were exceptional as were the perfectly prepared skirt steaks and sides. Great...Wine List. Don’t miss this gem. You will not be disappointed.More

This restaurant was easily our best meal in Puerto Rico, and reasonably priced too. I would definitely come here if in the Rincon area.

Excellent tapas, steak and pasta - we shared a little bit of everything and were not disappointed. Full bar with large selection of tragos, wine and beers. Overall a wonderful experience. Calling ahead for reservations is recommended.

The appetizers were good, but the quality of the steaks and the flavors were not worth the price. I ordered the skirt steak medium rare and it was rare. I don’t mind that, but the flavor wasn’t there. My boyfriend ordered the ribeye medium and...it was medium rare. We both decided that it was just ok. Another thing, we check the menu beforehand and the prices were not the same. My steak was originally $19 and it was $29. The ribeye was $32 and was $43 at the restaurant. The waitress was very nice but, she suggested, as directed by the chef,that we ordered the appetizers and the main course at the same time. We didn’t want to thinking that both were gonna come at the same time. The girl, again, not her fault, insisted that the chef knew when to serve. Well, we still had appetizers at the table when the food came. We complained to the waitress and she sincerely apologized. For a just ok steakhouse, not worth the price. But, the desserts were great.More

We arrived on time and were immediately seated, something that doesn't usually happen around here. Service was prompt, friendly, courteous and we never felt rushed. Appetizer was an order of its chorizo parrillero or Argentinian sausage and it was superb, juicy and cooked to perfection,...and of high quality. I had a ribeye which was cooked to perfection, well-seasoned and of good size. There are other cuts of steaks, with an ample selection available. One in our party asked for the skirt steak with the fat cap on. It was different from those prepared by other Argentinian restaurants (smaller, the fat cap was not as crispy) but it tasted well. The ambiance is very cozy and has ample outside seating for those who prefer the safety of the outdoors in these times of COVID.More

Parrilleria Vacas Gauchas was recommended to us months ago, but we were finally able to try it. It did not disappoint! You almost miss it when you drive by because it is hidden behind lush plants which adds to the vibe mod cool interior vibe....The food was excellent. We ordered the goat cheese appetizer and rabbit croquettes and the lamb ravioli. All amazing. For dinner we had the NY aged strip and the prime rib accompanied by grilled potatoes. All were expertly prepared and very tasty. Add a glass of the house made Sangria and topped off with the lavender creme brûlée and their gelato for dessert. Service was amazing. I would call ahead for a table. We will definitely be back!! Maybe next time we will sit outside.More

Made reservations and got there on time. Usual COVID precautions. Great locally made bread. My wife had skirt steak (churrasco) and I had filet mignon (bife de lomo) with fried yuca sticks. Girls had hamburgers. Everything tasted great. Girls had flourless chocolate cake and polished...it off. Great night out. Friendly service.More

The food was amazing! We were a family of four, with one vegan member. We ordered the skirt steak and filet minon, and the temperature was spot on, with no running juices at the table set. The side dishes were also tasty and cooked very...well. We moved on and ordered dessert, with similar results. Loved the service and the waitress attention to our detailed questions. Will definitely come back again when in the Rincón area.More
