Tucked away up on a hill about two blocks from the Civic Center and the Artisanal market is this fine restaurant. There are only about 10 tables inside and a handful outside. Dinner service begins at 8:00pm. From the lime-green windows to the wooden tables...More

We had dinner at Alto el Fuego. I had steak, my wife had pork. Both were out of this world. I don't think you can get a steak like that for $50/lb in the US. The portion was almost 1.5 lb, and I swallowed it...More

Booked a table for this restaurant and were glad we did as it was very busy. This is basically a meat restaurant with mostly beef but also pork, chicken, lamb sausages and sweetbreads. It is a simple menu but you come here for the steaks....More

I don't remember any purely vegetarian entree's but like others said, there were veggies as sides that you could order several of. I did have a salad but it was not entree sized.
