“Not Like the USA - Do Not Go There!”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

This Outback is directly across the street from the Icon Vallarta Resort and the Hilton. Went in for a steak dinner. Asked for a salad and specifically asked that my steak be cooked AFTER I ate my salad. well, the steak came within about 3 minutes and the salad had not yet arrived. I complained and they took the steak back. I knew what was going to happen. I ate the salad. They then brought out, yes, the same steak that arrived early. It tasted like shoe leather. You guessed it. They kept the steak warm until I finished the salad and served it to me right after.

Service was terribble even though they had an abundance of staff, some just standing around talking and laughing and flirting. In fact, they were overloaded with employees but no service.

Bottom line, food was lousy and service was unacceptable. Don't go there.

Food is excellent! I love their Salmon! Service is great and very accommodating. My husband always has the steak. He says it is always done to perfection.
