    Food was very good, I recommend the muscles as an appetizer, sharing and entrée and a few sides is the most economical way to go. Portions are LARGE!

    Food is absolutely amazing and they have greatly improved the service!!!! Get the mussels, the enrollada and definitely order a bottle of the house wine - best wine on the menu!!

    Really good meat, the skirt steak for $33 is huge and awesome. Avoid everything else! $8 for French fries? $17 for provoleta? No thanks

    Been coming here for 5 years, and food is always amazing. As everyone has said, La enrollada is amazing. House wine is very good as well.

    The highlight of the new menu is the 36-inch skirt steakLa Enrollada” -- so called because its length demands that it be served rolled up. Read more

    In unfortunate that a restaurant with such great food, would have such crappy service. It happens every single time we come, no matter the day or time. Wish they would get it together.

    Good beef empanadas. Consider sharing the main course as every steak is over 16 oz. The service is legendary bad. Still good steaks. Go during lunch. Laugh off at the bad service ;)

    As soon as you hop out of your car in the parking lot next to Las Vacas Gordas (translation: the fat cows), you'll smell the hot grill. Read more

    The portions are incredibly big, one is enough for two, but they will charge you extra

    Side- about 10 a piece, and steak is $30 and up for most. It was $150 for two

    Try the Parrillada For 2 - Beautifully seasoned but chewy steak, perfectly cooked.

    The ny steak was huge, sides are shareable! Overall good but our steak was undercooked, even after we sent it back again. It was still mooing

    When I think about it, it was my worst experience at Miami North Beach. If you want an argue with your partner because of table, choice, bill etc., so go there.

    Loved the old place prior to remodel. They seemed to have doubled the prices and now it's just overpriced.

    Service was slow, but nice. Food was excellent, though. Don't come here if you're not a patient person, but the food is waaayyyyy better than the service!

    Staff is not very friendly, but if you ever sit down and get your food, it's delish.... Worth the obnoxious attitude

    Call your waiter/waitress a "vaca gorda" in exchange for a special treat!

    This is a great place but they not only encourage over-ordering but overtipping as well. Bill includes tip then cc slip says Tip (not add. Tip) so most people will tip twice. Not cool.

    If you're hungry , order away. Otherwise, be careful as the plates are HUGE!

    Any dish can be shared up to 3 people but the waiters don't disclose when taking orders. That isn't cool but food is good.

    I definitely DO NOT recommend this restaurant. They're stealing people's money trying to be SLICK. And I know I'm not the only person who's gone through this. Shame on you.
