If you decide to visit them in rush hours expect some delay in your order. Food is good tough, so you might think the wait was worthy. The area is really nice and well distributed. Parking lot is reduced but the vallet parking service is a good option.

Beef is great and very well cooked as well as served with a variety of side dishes. Prices are reasonable and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I've been to the Santa Elena restaurant several times and I've never been disappointed. However, it gets pretty busy on weekends and bank holidays.

Nice views, friendly service, and great food. We only found it strange that, after ordering 8 oz steaks, we were told that they only had 10 oz steaks left... The steak was however tender and tasty.

WOW, Came here for a farewell dinner before coming back to the US as a first time tourist in ES. It takes a lot to achieve this kind of caliber in the steak business. The Location is just historic, The ambiance was phenomenal no matter where you sit. A huge wooden fireplace in the middle of the hallway, you eat... More

Last week, I had lunch with some friends at La Pampa, which is located on the skirts of San Salvador's volcano. We ordered "entrana steak" (skirt) and it was delicious. They have a very nice selection of Chilean and Argentinian wines, and the prices were very reasonable. The view of the city from this restaurant is simply extraordinary. You may... More

You might as well go for the venue, they have invested a lot on having these restaurants built on exclusive locations (Lago de Coatepeque, Boquerón, Bella Vista). Service is really good too. However, food is overpriced and not impressive at all, steak cuts you can get at the supermarket for a 1/3 of the price and have them seasoned as... More
