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.

Made reservation to include birthday. Confirmed with hostess on arrival, mentioned to waiter (Fernando) about birthday. Waiter was not focused on service to us. He spent majority of his time at another table since they sent food back to the kitchen. Fernando presented bill without any birthday dessert while other tables were given birthday dessert. He presented bill which was not correct. After much discussion, he corrected the bill and still no mention of birthday. At this point, my birthday guest left the restaurant. I asked for manager. He made a small adjustment in bill but no apology. This ruined a 70th birthday celebration.

The restaurant was great, the steaks were awesome, serving sizes were large. Service was nice, and they even brought out a surprise dessert for our anniversary. I'm not giving it five stars across the board, because I believe they should have a no smoking of any kind policy. The table next to us had a woman who was vaping and it was gross.

The steak was one of the most flavorful tender steaks I have ever had! My husband and I shared the Vacio for two. More meat than we could eat. Paired with the potatoe and mushrooms it was fabulous.

This place is a favorite and never disappoints. We all prefer different temps for our cuts. The server recommended fbe perfect cut for us to share, which arrived on a steaming hot rock that would continue cooking your meat, if desired. The carajillos are delish!!

The staff was great. The food was mediocre. Not very flavorful. For the price you pay the food should’ve been outstanding. I preferred the food park next door for about half the price.

Lamb good but over cooked should have sent them back Vacio steak excellent, tender and well cooked. Wait staff excellent. Traffic noise from adjacent street was very distracting and made our experience less than perfect. We will probably return but will insist on an inside table. They did have one table available inside but it was directly under a blasting cold air conditioning duct.

Food and drinks are always excellent here. We look forward to coming here and enjoying steak.

:Love the cheese appt with peppers. Ribeye was delicious and huge, just could not get it done the way I like it, surprisingly. Pittsburg rare or Black and Blue.... only rare.medium or well done. Nothing else-disappointment. The lamb chops were amazing as was the Bone Marrow. Definately come with an empty tummy

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Lentil Bacon soup was amazing and their house salad & dressing salad was refreshing. The table loved their Shrimp, Steak, Salmon & Pasta dishes! Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

Great rib eye and New York steak, extremely flavourful. 500g / 18 ounces., and this was not the biggest cut you could get! The cheese cake was amazing and unlike any I’ve had before.
We chose to stay on the patio which is right beside the highway so there was a lot of traffic noise, but this was expected. Inside is very quiet, Prices are higher than other restaurants but the value is strong for what you get and still a good deal from a Canadians perspective. I highly recommended going to La Vaca.

Simplemente increíble..! Para los que somos clientes de La Vaca en Guadalajara ir a La Vaca Vallarta es una muy grata sorpresa... la misma calidad pero supera expectativas.. La carne igual de buena pero aves y mariscos muy superiores, y de los postres ni hablar..! Más grandes y mejor presentados... el lugar está precioso... La atención es estupenda... Muy muy bien...

Some of the best food we’ve had in PV. Large portions, big flavors, great Argentina Malbecs! Wife and I went here on a date and spent $3,000 MX and could only eat about half of the food. Definitely recommended for parties 3+ so everyone can have a wide variety of food without feeling overwhelmed.

As with many great dining experiences in PV, set aside at least 90 minutes to fully enjoy your meal and the experience. I rated the noise level as moderate (3/4 bars) but it was quiet when we ate there at 2:00PM.

The beef isn’t from Argentina, it’s U.S. choice angus. That was definitely a disappointment, and We would have gladly paid extra for the option to have an Argentenian steak with all of the nuanced flavors of a steer that is grass fed “and beyond.” Even so, the meat was very well cooked. They bring it out on a heavy, hot cast iron and sear it right in front of you, allowing everyone to have their meat exactly how they want it.

We will be going here again, it was a great experience overall and worth the 5* rating.

This place was amazing! Everything we tried on our two visits were exquisite. I had the Vacío 2 nights in a row medium well. One night with steamed veggies which were broccoli, cauliflower and carrots. We shared a plate of ravioli with pesto. The next night I got the Vacio again this time I ordered the roasted asparagus appetizer and they were so delicious and perfectly seasoned and cooked. My friend ordered the shrimp and they were the best I had in a while. They were perfectly buttered sautéed with garlic that just thinking of them made my mouth water! Also had a bowl of lentil soup with bacon that was delicious. That night I decided to get the Creme Brûlée and it was also delicious. The service both nights were great and made our dinner that much more enjoyable.

La afluencia de la mayoría de restaurantes depende principalmente de la técnica que mercadeo que se maneje, de forma secundaria el sabor, y la vaca argentina no es la excepción. Muy buen trato, atención y calidez del personal, ambiente y concepto; respecto al sabor creo que es de buena calidad, sin embargo no excepcional. Un lugar recomendable al que se asiste por el concepto más que por la comida, en donde no puedo más que felicitar al chef es el punto de cocción, pues en las Bahia parece ser el único que lugar que sirve el corte al término que se pide y no al que se crea conveniente. Invitado a volver para pasar un momento ameno.

While we did not get to enjoy most of our meal due to a medical emergency, the service and genuine concern the staff delivered was simply amazing. At the very start of our meal one of our party members got a piece of food stuck in her esophagus, the staff assisted her to the restroom, the manager who has some medical training monitored her and provided us with updates, they packed up all of our food, gave us directions to the nearest medical center, helped us get a cab, and really did everything in their power to assist us with the situation. Our waiter even gave us his cellphone number if we needed anything since we are not local. When everything was resolved at the local hospital and we finally got to eat the food, everything was delicious. When a reheated steak tastes amazing, you know it’s great food. Kudos to Fernando and his team members, you are great people that truly care. You made a terrible situation much easier and it is something we will always remember.
