Great steaks and kebabs, gets busy but well worth it if you want lost to eat. Service is good and drinks reasonably priced.

We'd been told Vaca Loca was the place for argentinian steak and had the time of our life! There is no booking system and with a wait for a table for 6 we enjoyed the freshly prepared mojito's at the bar. The choice of steaks and other delicious cuts of meat and grilled vegetables is absolutely excellent and we all thoroughly enjoyed, remembering to thank the owner and staff before leaving. Can't wait to go back next week over half-term!

Asked for solomillo & Entrecotte but only had solomillo. Well in actual fact it wasn't solomillo. Lots of gristle through the meat which solomillo doesn't have. My wife regurgitated most of her meat as so gristley. Enjoyed the wine, ambience and the staff. We visited the restaurant 3 years previous and it has gone from average to unacceptable for food quality. However as a hang out for drinks VG but go elsewhere for good beef. Tarifa is a sweet place and we will always return......

Visited the place after many recommondatios on TripAdvisor.
Asked the waiter for the best steak and we got two very differents cuts.
The first one was 6-7 cm high, the other one was flat and 1-3 cm high.
The steaks were prepared to our wish (rare) but were not tender at all. After the steaks were served nobody took any notice to us until we asked for the bill. May be they knew about the quality of the steaks?
We give 2 stars as the wine was excellent.
