Argentinean
Vaca Argentina - Vallarta is an Argentinean steakhouse. This restaurant has been in operation for over ten years, and continues its success though its incredibly delicious cuisine. The interior is bright, with brick columns lining the dining room and bright red windows bringing a splash of color to the seating area. Asador La Vaca Argentina honors the famous tradition of Argentinean steakhouses by putting the beef and steak dishes front and center. The other specialty of the house is wine, and while Asador La Vaca Argentina has both French and Spanish varieties there are several Argentinean wines available too.

    Our server, Christian, was excellent! The top sirloin was cooked to perfection & bread, salad & asparagus was delicious. For 2 people, splitting the steak would have been enough for each of us. We will come back in the future.

    The food was good and portions were sizable, and the staff were nice, but we were served our main course before finishing our appetizer so there was no room for all the plates, especially because the salads came out at the same time as the main course. We noted in our reservation that one of the member of our party was having a birthday, but there was no acknowledgement of that and given this was supposed to be a surprise, we didn't or couldn't say anything when we asked for the check. We're very disappointed that our request wasn't acknowledged. It clearly says this was a birthday dinner in our Open Table reservation request. Below I've been asked whether I would recommend this restaurant and the only choices I'm only given are yes or no. I'm answering no, but my answer would have been yes if the issues above had been attended to properly. The better answer to the question is "maybe".

    We had a wonderful salmon appie. Wordered steaks medium rare. That definition may be diffent in Pueto Vallarta. They were almost raw just seared on the outside. I could not eat mine. Took it home and cooked it perfecly. It was delicous. The Argentinian wine was superb.

    This was one of the best meals I have had out anywhere in a really long time! The service was great and the food was amazing! My daughters fettucini alfredo was the best I have ever had as well and the steak was better than any Alberta beef where we come from

    We have been going to this place since opening years ago. Yesterday was our deception on the food and we had also companies with us. The potatoes were hard, not eatable, the filet mignon just like rubber to all 6 of us. It’s never been like this in past.

    Much of the time when you go out to eat your experience starts with your server, then food. All came together on our visit. Julio made every effort to make our night a pleasure. The food was prepared at a very high level. We had the octopus which is very large (definitely split) and prepared to perfection . Same is true for the bone in rib eye. Our meal was so good we came back and had same experience. Just as you expect, great on all accounts.

    The table reserved was right at the entrance when you walk in and of course nobody wants that one. I had selected the birthday option and was thinking they would consider this occasion but nothing happened. We have been numerous times at this restaurant and we believe that the quality of the food is no longer as good.

    Very good argentinian restaurant. Found the churrasco, the traditional argentinian cut a bit tough. The ribeye was better. Cocktail drinks ok. Great and attentive service. Hard to find the entrance due to lack of guidance signage, right or left from the center windows?

    Some of the best steak we've eaten and service was excellent. They certainly know their meat and local wines. Definitely a must-go for the meat eaters out there. "The VACA" cowboy ribeye was extraordinary!
