I've visited La Pampa since I was a little kid and I absolutely love their food, it has great taste, and the service is super prompt and courteous. If we have a special celebration, we always consider this restaurant as an option.

I was served a fantastic steak with a great view of the capital city and at this higher elevation on the side of a dormant volcano it was cooler than in the city itself

This is our favourite place to eat in El Salvador. The views are amazing, service great and the food superb. I'd definitely recommend it. El Salvador is a wonderful country.

Dined here with a large group midweek and the restaurant seemed busy and full but not overcrowded. The views were nice and certainly worth the ride above town. The staff was very accommodating but were obviously challenged by the size of our group. I really enjoyed my meal but I noticed my colleagues had to wait a long time for... More

We went at about 7:00 on a Wednesday night and it was not too crowded. We both ordered steaks medium rare and they were prepared just as we liked. Service was efficient and the only complaint was that our red wine was served chilled, but maybe that is the norm in San Salvador.

A group of 4 decided to go to Pampa el Volcán. We have previously gone to their restaurants in Santa Elena and Multiplaza and had a good experience. We ordered steak, shrimp, and hamburger. The food was hot and delicious. It was at par with the other branches we had tried but the prices were slightly elevated about $2-3 more... More

There are several pampas in El Salvador some of them are in very good places like the one in Coatepeque lake or San Salvador Volcano. Is the most popular steak house in El Salvador. For me is like I said overpriced and overrated. Steak is good but some of the sides are too oily. In a steak house you expect... More

Can get LOUD & busy. Best to go weeknights. Never had a bad meal there. We will recommend Manuel for his outstanding service & ATTENTION ! I also shared that the pork ribs here are very good. If you like well done the will separate them. Otherwise keep them as a rack. Coffee and deserts here also well done. You... More
