This old school Santiago steakhouse never fails to deliver top quality steaks, fine wine, and impeccable service. With its warm, rustic atmosphere and exceptional food, it is clearly a favorite of santiaguinos.

This place gets crowded even during the week days, we visited it two times and we loved the variety of meats they offer, highly recommended to visit, it is in downtown Santiago and a taxi can take you there easily.

We were at LVG on a week night but the place was getting crowded by 9:00 pm. It's primarily a "local's" restaurant and the quality keeps them coming back! One of our party had lasagna and pronounced it great. The other two of us had...More

There's a lot on the menu for all tastes, including vegetarian even though Las Vacas Gordas is known as a steakhouse. Our visit, the first in the 8 years I've lived here, was great, with well-cooked meat, excellent sides, and attentive (if cold) service. Prices...More

Las Vacas Gorday is a "must" when visiting Santiago. It's been 8 years or more since my last visit - but it was as good as I remembered. The food is fantastic, the staff friendly and helpful and everything is reasonably priced.
