Myself and my boyfriend from Essex visited this restaurant last night with some friends from the area and must say, this was definitely one of the best meals we've had out in a while! The salad buffet bar was delicious, however don't feel yourself up too much with all that! The meats started coming round and were amazing, the chicken wings, chicken legs, lamb sausages, chicken chunks in different flavourings, the steak! All of it was lovely. However something else which made this place special were the staff. The passadors who carve the meat and the waiters/waitresses were so friendly and probably the nicest set of staff we have come across in a restaurant in the UK. Even the manager came out and spoke to us for a while to make sure everything was OK. We felt like we were on holiday with the way we were treated. Nothing was too much trouble. Can not wait to go again...Just need an El Vaquero in Essex now!

Went to this buzzing restaurant the other evening with a bunch of old friends,none of us are exactly young,and it was an unusual pleasure not to feel out of place.
The restaurant was really busy,but we had booked a table for 8 people,and it was ready for us on time.
The food is great,the salad bar spotless and continually topped up,the staff friendly.You can read lots of reviews about the "all you can eat" concept and the meat on skewers coming to your table untill you can't eat another thing,but I just wanted to mention the whole evenings experience,which was terrific

Love love love it here !!
The only thing that lets it down is that there is no waiting area as we were slightly early for our table
Food is always spot on and the waiters are always friendly
Such a good price at 23.95 per person and most of the time the service charge is well deserved
Will be returning very soon!
Meat eaters heaven

What a difference 10 days makes. We heard a rather different version of Adam F's experience from the Manager who said that the reservation was not made in accordance with El V's policy and was sorry that it was not possible to resolve the differences with his customer....but we don't know the facts and are are sorry that Adam was unable to enjoy the restaurant as much as we did. The formula of having a super salad bar or other buffet starters followed by constant servings of barbecued steak, chicken, lamb, pineapple and more on Sword-long skewers by very friendly staff ticks all the boxes and could be bettered at the price. It was our fourth visit to an El V but our first at Mill Hill....so we shall return. No need to go to Rio for the World Cup when you have this 'Brazillian' experience on your door step.

Rudest staff I have ever met. Arrived there having reserved for 10 and sent us away on my birthday for no apparent reason than the manager being really arrogant who refused to have us despite having a reservation
