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

We went to this little place in the Larcomar shopping center for dinner and it was delicious. If you want some amazing steaks get the Argentine beef- it's grass fed and delicious. Everything we ate there was really delicious, the chorizo, the salad and especially the steaks. I also had a pisco sour made with some sort of high end... More

It's hard to select among Lima's great restaurants, but la Vaca Loca makes it easy! Wonderful viands in a festive setting. Don't miss it!

We visited a week ago the three of us had Lomo Fino, baked potato and salad. The steak was done to perfection and we ordered rare, medium and 3/4. The salad was of a good portion and the dressing was light not too heavy. The only thing that was missing was the view but the food was excellent.

You may think a restaurant in a mall is not 5 stars but this one is working well. We tried the "chorizo argentino" which costs around USD 50 but worth it. Try the potatoes with onions, never tried it before, healthy one! They offer great wines from Spain as well.

We were dying for some steak and happened in to LVL. Unfortunately they said their charcoal grill was out because the smell was going up though the stores above it. So they broiled the steaks and they were mediocre. Food was fair at best. Wouldn't come back.

Let me begin with the comment that my husband and I had no expectations, other than when we saw this restaurant in this high end mall high on the cliffs of Milleflores, it was packed. We chose it because we saw a hibachi-like stove on a few tables with grilled meat and every table had a bottle of wine on... More
