We went at about 7:00 on a Wednesday night and it was not too crowded. We both ordered steaks medium rare and they were prepared just as we liked. Service was efficient and the only complaint was that our red wine was served chilled, but maybe that is the norm in San Salvador.

A group of 4 decided to go to Pampa el Volcán. We have previously gone to their restaurants in Santa Elena and Multiplaza and had a good experience. We ordered steak, shrimp, and hamburger. The food was hot and delicious. It was at par with the other branches we had tried but the prices were slightly elevated about $2-3 more... More

I was pleasantly surprised by our waiter who went out of his way to make our visit a good one. The food was hot and good, had a great wine and you can't beat the view in this place. Recommend going at night.

We went to La Pampa a Los Planes. It will not disappoint with great food, service and views. This is a higher end restaurant in El Salvador and great for family get togethers or special occasions. We went for lunch with four of us and ordered steak or fish fillet. The total was just over $80 with no wine or... More

Vast quantity of food. Decent meat selections. Located inside the mall so had to ask directions. Friendly staff and food was not expensive.

Was at this restaurant for a breakfast and it could not be a better place! Superb views, excellent food, nice atmosphere - all you need for a great time! Definitely it`s one of the best locations in San Salvador to visit for a great time and food. Will come here again in January.

This restaurant is located on the way to the volcano Boqueron. It offers a very nice view onto San Salvador. Food is good and the service too. Recommended
