I went with my cousin and partner for dinner. We ordered bread (not worth, small pieces of pita bread and a little "empanada"), a couple of "anticucho" sticks (skewers of beef heart deliciously marinated), a "small" sirloin steak piece each (huge, 300 grams) with rice, french fries or salad, and one beer each. The bill was very reasonable ($120, including... More

We stayed at the JW Marriott in the Miraflores section of Lima and inquired about recommended dining establishments nearby. La Vaca Loca was suggested to us. Interestingly, it and many other restaurants are located in a very upscale mall across the street from the Marriott. More interestingly, you cannot even see the mall from street level, as it is built... More

If you are a beef-addicted, here you will find some excellent meats and steaks, served in a nice ambiance by a welcoming staff. Strongly suggested.

A nice, tinny and delicious place to eat. Good steaks. The best "mollejas al limón" in Latin America and of course a beautiful hostess. What else you can ask for!!

In spite of La Vaca Loca being an Argentinian restaurant specialising in meat, I chose grilled Octopus. I was glad I did as it was excellent, though the salad with it lacked any imagination. My wife was not so lucky. Her meat dish did not offer the quality of beef normally expected in an Argentinian restaurant, and was not very... More
