“when in Rome”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

When in Sinaloa, eat beef. It was excellent. The trophy heads on the walls were a bit weird, but the food and service were excellent.

“WHAT A PLEASURE TO EAT EXCELLENT SONORA STEAK”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

This restaurant is stuck to the side of the Armida Hotel. While my opinion about the hotel is quite poor… I must say that this restaurant is fantastic. Best place in Guaymas, by FAR.

This is what I feel:

POSITIVE POINTS:
The MEAT!!!!!
WOW… what a pleasure to eat in this place. Having a small starter shared with my colleagues and customer, while waiting for the brilliant steak. A few bottles of nice red wine, together with the food was a plus.

The meat came, and it was simply cooked to perfection – exactly as I asked for. The taste of Sonora steaks are known all over Mexico, and this place does not disappoint on the quality of the food served in this restaurant.

The décor of the restaurant is quite nice… depending on your taste. It has a lot of “hunting trophies” that in my personal opinion adds to the feel of a GOOD typical Sonora steak-house.

The staff is friendly and qualified, and we were very professionally waited on.

After the brilliant steak, there was absolutely no space for anything else. REALLY enjoyed the meal, the wine and the atmosphere.

NEGATIVE POINTS:
Just ONE… but it is not the restaurant’s fault.
The place is relatively small, and when you have kids running around the place, screaming and bumping into everything… including me a few times, it can reduce the general experience. I cannot understand parents who allow their kids to do that – have they NO respect for other people???

SUMMING UP:
When in Guaymas, don’t give this place a miss. The food is simply outstanding. I have been here over the years that I travel to Guaymas… and I have never been let down by the quality of the food. So… COME IN… SIT DOWN… and simply ENJOY THE MEAT.

“Great steaks and great service”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

El Oeste serves some really great steaks and Mexican food in general. The service was great and portions were big. The restaurant is decorated with a lot trophy hunting mounts and is a bit dark but comfortable, Aside from the chips and salsa there is a small soup and salad bar, Definitely worth a try if in the Guaymas and San Carlos area.

“Best steaks in Guaymas, and they will specially cook other meat if you prefer not to eat beef.”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Wonderful established down home steak house with old Western flavor. Very welcoming to children even though a bit upscale.

“Best meat !!!”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

I love to go and have a good meat in this restaurant. They have a great salad bar and the service is excellent. The restaurant is decorated with nice trophies. If you go to Guaymas or San Carlos this is the best restaurant. Do not miss it!!!
