Our group ventured out into Puerto Vallarta after a pleasant day in the sun. Tired of the resort food at the Grand Fiesta Americana, we tried Asador La Vaca Argentina on a recommendation. Absolutely no regrets. The food was amazing, wonderfully seasoned, and fresh! I...highly recommend the grilled octopus as one of your starters. We shared the porterhouse and the tomahawk, leaving nothing but the bones. They paired well with an Argentinian wine (a blend) whose name escapes me. Loved the mushrooms as a side dish. And do not forget the coconut pie for dessert! For a lot less than eating at the steakhouse on the resort property, you can't go wrong with Asador La Vaca Argentina. Honorable mention: Ruben was an extremely attentive waiter, so ask for him and you won't go wrong.More

The steak I had was very hard to eat. I ended up eating less than half of it cause the rest was tendons and too hard. All steaks comes with no sides except a pretty poor honey mustard salad. You'll end up paying almost double...if you want potatoes, veggie or any other sides. When I told the server my steak was not very tender he did nothing about it and asked me how much tip I wanted to leave. On a good note, steak was very tasty and the cooking as expected. The place looks good and they had soccer on the TVMore

Food/meat was very good. Service was very good until the waiter asked me out load in front of our table whether I wanted to tip 20% or 25% The very awkward and surprising question about the tip is lowering overall rating to 3.

Loved the music and atmosphere. A bit pricier than we are used to but if you want to treat yourself it is worth it. We had Mateo as our server and he was fantastic! We had the octopus and beet salad that was excellent and...Mateo recommended a Malbec wine from Argentina that was Fab! Would recommend to friends visiting Puerto Vallarta!More

We just returned from a week in PV and ate at the La Vaca Argentina twice. The first time we went, we shared the porterhouse steak and it was incredible. A few nights later, we went back and had the rack of lamb. The food,...including the sides (mushrooms are to die for!) were excellent. However, the most enjoyable part of our dining experience was having Fernando as our server. We happened upon his section the first time we dined there and enjoyed his service (and fun personality) so much that we requested to sit in his section when we returned. Between the amazing food, great wine, and friendly service, La Vaca will be a regular stop for us every time we return!More

Yes they do - also, you get salad with your main course so need to order one separately unless you want a special salad. And i think you can get refills of their side salad.
