Great and vibrant ambiance, nice decoration and friendly service. We order appetizers, queso fundido con chorizo, good portion, order the local churrasco at 3/4, means medium well by the waiter suggestion since the medium means more rate cocking. Tender beef good service and nice decor,...definitely worth a visit.More

Amazing! Food and service were great! The portions are big and the beef soup they give you in the beginning is a surprising highlight. The quesadilla appetizer was great and the frijol that comes with a lot of the dishes was extremely flavorful. Server was...really attentive and provided excellent service. Would definitely come back again.More

Had dinner my last night in town because of the reviews and wasn't disappointed. My server was great. He spoke some English and I spoke some Spanish, so we worked through it just fine. I usually like my steak medium, but he advised it get...it medium well which was cooked perfectly. The soup starter was a great addition. Would highly recommend.More

Every time I visit El Salvador, Hacienda Real is my go-to restaurant. From the moment I step inside I am swiftly acknowledged by the super-friendly host. As you are escorted to your table every staff member that you walk by greets you like they were...expecting you. The service staff is very courteous, attentive and ensures that you have an exceptional dinning experience. Wilfredo has waited on me multiple times. He’s a highly experienced and professional waiter. He always goes above and beyond to make sure every detail of the dinning experience exceeds expectations. Also, the food is always fresh and delicious. I usually order the grilled chicken or pork. I do not eat beef so I can not comment on the beef entrees. They have a wide variety of European, South American and U.S. wines. I usually order a bottle of Italian Col di Sasso, Banfi for $22. Yes, only $22. It’s a dry red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon / Sangiovese grapes) from Tuscany. If you need a recommendation from a wine expert, ask for Nestor. He’s Hacienda Real’s sommelier. He’s very knowledgeable about wine and will find a wine that delights your palette.More

Been to the one in Cayala in Guatemala several times, so very familiar with the brand. Food was great but the covid "protocols" were so over the top my wife and I couldn't stop laughing. We're used to the walking with a mask on, but...can take it off when seated (nonsensical and illogical, but whatever) but this place had plastic partitions between each table, waiters wore two masks and face shields and on top of that all silverware was wrapped in saran wrap (talk about an environmental waste) and all meals and drinks came in these giant cake protector covers. It was so absurd we were laughing so much, we didn't realize that we got a free comedy show with dinner. We mentioned this to our waiter and he was so embarrassed too. It's been 2.5 years guys, let's get on with our lives already.More

My family and I had dinner at the La Hacienda Real in San Salvador. The reception we got from the minute we walked in was incredibly warm, friendly and courteous. Our waitress was Carolina Montoya and the waiter was Guillermo. They gave the best service...anyone could ask for: courteous, friendly, and so attentive. We had the skirt steak and a parrillada. Everything was cooked to perfection. One of my favorite places ever.More

I went with my girlfriend to have a great dinner and the experiences was one of the best we had, the waiter Yohalmo, super professional attentive and took care of everything. The restaurant was beautiful, but unfortunately the night wasn't all magic, once the manager...Alberto reached out to our table he took it as a personal task to make us experience the worst time while we were dining. The waiters and the place are great but the managers really leave a lot to think about......More

This is by far the very best steak restaurant in the country. It is located close to the biggest and most important malls and hotels, so location is premium. The food is amazing, and not only steak, but also sea food, chicken, chorizo, etc. all...dishes are a poem that the chef writes for your stomach and leaves it in love and craving for more. Now, all this sounds pretty good, right? Well, the very best thing is the service. This place really takes customwr service seriously, waiters are very well trained and will treat you like royalty. Hacienda Real is great food served by great people.More

Went to the Hacienda while in El Salvador on business. The service was amazing. Very friendly staff. Started the meal off with a warm cloth to wipe your hands off. Then a warm bowl of a beef broth which was exquisite. I had the filet...mignonette which was cooked to perfection. The price was stupid cheap. We will absolutely be back and definitely recommend having a meal or two here if you’re in town.More

This is a meat and wine restaurant with a touch of Guatemala influence. The meat is great, the side dishes delicious and the service is great, all inside a ranch-like low-light environment. Great for couples or a special occasion.

I generally like Hacienda, but on Thursday night they were a mess. We met a friend for dinner and while they started out ok, by the end of the meal we were wondering what the heck happened to Hacienda. Service was off, even though they...weren't all that busy. While I appreciate that the waiter noticed we were talking, it would have been nice if he'd come around again after delivering our drinks to see if we were ready to order something to eat. We had to flag down another waiter to order our food. Given we hadn't seen our friend in a while, we all decided to splurge on the ribeyes. They came out underdone, and one of them was *way* underdone. They weren't attractive either - though they had grill marks on them, they had no char and didn't taste as if they'd been cooked over the wood fire. It was really disappointing. I'll go back as Hacienda is generally the best place in town to get a steak, but next time I will send the steak back if it comes out like this again.More

As a meat lover this was a dream come true they have imported meat from the US of Prime quality, the highest grade the US Department of Agriculture gives out. It was so good we had to come back a second time. The feel of...the restaruant is charming and warm. The service is exeptional. If you are american be warned that some of the names the steaks have may not correspond to what we call them in the US. For intance what we call the New York Strip or Kansas City Steak they call a Sirloin, which is an entirely different cut in the US. A minor detail which might be overlooked by most but for a meat lover is a bit irksome. Consult you waiter for additional tips. If you are in El Salvador you MUST try this place out. The prices arent too bad expect to pay about 70$ for a dinner for two including tip and a dessert. If you can only visit one restaruant in San Salvador, it should be this one, and ive been to quite a few.More
