Our concierge suggested this steakhouse and we were not disappointed. The ordering process was a bit tricky as you read the menu on a screen, then ordered your meat from the meat counter. The butcher sliced off the appropriate meat portion and you took the meat to the cashier. Next you paid the cashier for your meat and whatever sides... More

Then you walk over to cash reg and tell them what sides you want. You then pay for everything. The... More

Had dinner on a suggestion from a friend. Asked fellow vacationers, all had good things to say! We entered and found the place very busy, got seated right away. The waiter informed us to go up to the what seemed a deli counter to pick your meat, and how large of a portion you wanted. Then you proceed to the... More

Some people we met at the pool, told us about this place. Next day, others mentioned this place. We went the next night & we're glad we did. Popular among locals. You pick the type of steak you want, T bone, rib eye, filet, porterhouse...many others to choose from. Tell them the thickness, they cut, weigh & price it. Take... More

We have always gone to another steak restaurant while in Nueva Vallarta, but our hostess recommended that we try this one.....wow, so glad she did. It was half as expensive. We each ate a huge steak (the Vacio) and a huge side dish.....for less than $10 a piece. It is an interesting concept also. You go in and actually pick... More

This is a very popular restaurant among the locals. Easy to see why. The steaks are excellent and the prices are so reasonable. We went there twice. Is a little different experience. First you visit the butcher and choose your cut. Then you go to pay and order your sides. Then, if you want a drink or wine you order... More

But don't let that discourage you. 6 of us, Porterhouse steaks, filets, five sides and drinks with tip $65.00!!!!! Just go there. It is where the locals eat. You can eat inside or outside. You go up to the... More

Took the family here for dinner based upon several recommendations from other resort guests. Short taxi ride from any property in Nuevo Vallarta. This is a very unique format, great food, great service and an amazing value. You start off in the back at the meat counter where your steak will be selected and hand cut to your specifications. You... More
