“Great, unpretentious restaurant!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

If you are searching for a nice romantic restaurant, Lover's is the one you re looking for. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is quiet and relaxing. The food is delicious and portions are generous. The only downside is the parking. It is quite limited and you park on the street. There is security service, though.

“Great food, large portions and plenty of options”
Reviewed December 20, 2011

Lover's is the place to go if you are looking for large portions and plenty of options. It has an extensive menu with breakfasts, pasta, meat, fish, chicken and salads. Food has always been delicious and service is up-par to any San Salvador restaurant.

Tip: The restaurant often has live music performances at night. If you prefer less noise go there for lunch.

“Wonderful oasis from our busy day on tour!”
Reviewed May 28, 2011

My girlfriend and I along with our tour guide and driver had a wonderful dining experience, specifically lunch. We were very pleased with the selection, generous portions, quality of the food and service!
While on tour, "the Mayan route", our tour guide had us salivating with what he told us were the biggest shrimp we would ever see during our lunch stop later that day at Steak Lovers. He was not kidding! I had broiled shrimp and my GF had garlic shrimp. The shrimp were huge and tasty. The vegetables were also very tasty and there was fruit in the shape of a bird to go with the excellent food!
Our guide informed us that Steak Lovers was one of only two establishments that were approved by the ministry of tourism to take tourists. Good choice by the ministry! Bathrooms were nice and clean and it was a business crowd, so everyday people were dining as well, not just tourists. If you are in Santa Ana I highly recommend this place!

“If you want eat rubbish go to this restaurant!”
Reviewed February 28, 2010

My wife and I are frequent (once a year) visitors to Santa Ana, El Salvador as she is from that city. As this restaurant has recently open new premises conveniently close to the family home we tried it for lunch on Saturday 20th February 2010. Verrrry disappointing!

First of all, one is greeted by a cacophony of noise which makes it impossible converse with ones companions without shouting very loudly - the worst is the totally inappropriate music! The quality and preparation of the food is atrocious - I ordered a shrimp cevichefor starter. The shrimps had been over cooked and were very hard, there was no cilantro and thus no taste at all!

We both ordered steak main dishes which must have been very cheap cuts and was just too tough to eat.

We complained but to no avail. The waiters were willing but quality wise the food was rubbish.

Don't bother to go here!
