Description: Vaca Loca - A small casual restaurant with a wood/charcoal grill. We take pride in serving a fresh short menu of the best quality meats possible in generous portions, Argentinian beef (Or better), Iberian Pork, N.Z lamb and chicken and also vegetarian dishes. Open every day of the year 18:00 to 01:00 and In summer (July-sept) our kitchen is open all day/night from 13:00 to 01:00. We don't take reservations so come early as we can be busy, but will try to be as accommodating as possible.

Before eating here! Went twice and had the chicken and the spinach quiche, my husband had the pork and the steak all absolutely delicious and huge meals!!! Staff are very friendly. Great place to eat but not much seating inside.

The solomillo here is absolutely excellent - so is the mixed grill. Huge pieces of tender meat. Side dishes are a bit so-so and it's one of the priciest places in Tarifa... overall worth the value although the huge T-Bone that we shared wasn't as tender as the prime rib they also served. Busy outdoor seating, place doesn't take reservations and on a weekend night the wait can easily be an hour or more.

Specialises in steak but has other dishes of a regional variety as well.Steak was high quality and other meals excellent. Recommend if you want a break from garden variety tapas.

Small variety of dishes, overcrowded, you need to wait for 20-30 min to seat there even in a low season. But for a high quality value for money steak the place is definitely the best in Tarifa

The food here is amazing. It is very small inside but when the weather is good there is plenty of seats outside. The portions are huge and you get to see the food being cooked in front of you. We go here every time we are in Tarifa and we have never been disappointed. Any time I eat steak I always compare it to the meal in Vaca Loca and I can never get as good.
