I went with my girlfriend for a Saturday night out. Atmosphere was nice but that's where it ended. Service was horrible. Food horrible. Recommend Hacienda Real or Ruth's Chris.

My husband and I used to love this restaurant and we would visit it quite often. Had not been there in a while, so we decided to go there for dinner to celebrate my birthday. Wines are overpriced but we didn´t mind since the food was always so amazing in the past. This time though, the food was horrible! every single cut of meat (fillet mignon, ribs, lamb, chicken etc, etc) was a disaster. Every cut tasted as if it was past its prime. Not rotten yet, but getting there soon. Everything didn´t just taste bad, but it also smelled terrible. We had to ask the waiters to constantly remove the plates with the uneaten meats since we could not stand the smell from them. The only decent thing we could eat was the turkey. The restaurant advertises shrimp and lobster on the sticks as well but we didn´t get any of it. When we inquired about it they just said they had run out of it. The only thing I figure is that the world crisis has hit this restaurant and therefore they have lowered the quality of the meats and put it on the customer´s plates even if it is about to expire. Will never visit this restaurant again, I´m not making this mistake twice.

Dined here with my coworker during our stay in San Salvador. Overall it was an outstanding meal and it far exceeded our expectations.

Food: There is a buffet with all kinds of sides including sushi, sashimi, salads, rice, fruit, and so on. The highlight is the meat. Servers bring around several (approx 14 in total) cuts of meat (mostly beef) to your table on large metal skewers and ask if you wish to try them. The meats are cooked to perfection and are absolutely delicious!

Value: At $25 per person. I would give the value an 8 out of 5 if I could.

Service: Staff were excellent with attentive service throughout. One of our waiters, Cesar, was very accommodating and made the experience that much more enjoyable.

Oh and I can't forget to mention the dessert, cinnamon glazed roasted pineapple, don't leave without trying it!

The only suggestion I have is to offer a list of all the available meats at the table so I can eat in moderation and try all of them.

This is the restaurant in San Salvador where you will get the best service and great food. There is a bit for everyone not only for meat eaters! The meats are really good and there is also some cooed options, sushi, ceviches and vegetables and salads. The ambience is fun, great for business or friends.
