A word from Gaucho Piccadilly
Tucked away in a little known side street off Piccadilly this Gaucho Restaurant provides a bit of the Pampas and Buenos Aires relocated to the heart of the West End. As you soon as you enter the restaurant the aroma of meat sizzling on the open grills hits you. As well as steak we do offer a selection of other dishes including fish, chicken, ceviche and vegetarian options.

At Gaucho we pride ourselves on the basic philosophy of provenance. To us this means authenticity, assurance and rigorous attention to obtain the finest quality ingredients at source. This dedication ensures that every time you visit us, you experience the true essence of Argentine cuisine. Its food, its wine, its culture and importantly the passion of its people.

Decked out in cowhide, mirrors and chandeliers we offer a full range of Argentine cuts of luxury beef, including the tender Bife de Lomo, aged for six to eight weeks and then flown in from Buenos Aires.

Diner Reviews
  • "The usual high quality food, with a high level of service along with the usual high prices, although to be fair I hardly ever get a chance to munch on a decent slab of meat so it's a price worth paying for. Our server was equally as tasty as the food, unfortunately my style was cramped by the company I chose to dine with on this occasion. He will remain nameless (Stephen), but drinking red wine to him is the equivalent of downing a pint of tap water. No sooner had the wine be poured, Stephen was hoovering it up as though he had insider knowledge of an impeding global grape shortage. The conversation deteriorated as fast as his red wine lips appeared, so any chance of me exchanging numbers with the pretty blonde serving us were sadly gone."

  • "Went for my birthday and the service was great from as soon as you reached the front door to leaving... the staff there were friendly and knowledgeable.... the food and wine was lovely and although we splashed out and spent a lot of money you could on the other hand have a reasonable night there should you wish. Would definitely go again"

  • "Definitely recommend Gaucho if you love steaks! Sides' portions are very small and the wine is unfortunately overpriced! However overall we had a great meal!"

  • "They are very proud of their steak, and rightly so. All were succulent and full of flavour. Not only the food but the wine from their own vineyards in Argentina were smooth, rounded and not too heavily surcharged. Lighting was a little too low to read the menu(thank goodness for the iPhone torch), I noticed a few other customers struggling with the light, and later the lights were notched up. Lastly I asked if they had Spinach as a side, I was directed to the beans with spinach. A bettersolution would have been for the waitress to check with the kitchen as to whether they could accommodate my request. All in all a great night out, would certainly return for another special occasion."

  • "Felt more like a nightclub than a restaurant. Music was too loud, lighting too dark for my tastes. The food was very good but very expensive. Probably better for a younger clientele or group of friends."
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "I booked this for mine and wife's 10 year wedding anniversary. I have been to a Gaucho’s before and so knew the service and food would be top drawer. However, the music during the meal was rather loud and meant we spent much of the meal asking either other to repeat ourselves. When we had finished the meal we went back upstairs to the bar where the staff kept getting my wife's drink order wrong (Martini and Lemonade!!). Overall i would, on reflection, prefer the Gaucho's in the City."

    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "The food was excellent from start to finish but the waiter rushed us through the meal, forgetting the starters and a drink order. At the end of the meal he then was no where to be found to get the check. The food was good but the service and atmosphere didn't measure up."

  • "Our dinner was absolutely sensational, the service was very warm and friendly but didn't interrupt your dining experience. The steaks were cooked to absolute perfection and the speed of service was excellent"

  • "Lovely dinner, hadn't visited this branch in a while. Great food, service started off as fantastic. We cracked jokes with the manager and the waitress, who I guess got a bit tired by the end of the shift and didn't want to take our photo, otherwise we had a lovely time. The Malbec was out if this world - we will be returning!"
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "Nice food but very dark(bring a torch to read the menu!) and food arrived very quickly-2 courses arrived one after the other-too rushed!"
    dined on 15/08/2014
  • "We went here post a theatre matinee and have eaten at this chain on many occasions before. The restaurant is going through a refurbishment. The chairs are very low and the lighting is also poor. Our steaks were ordered medium rare and came medium well. The waitress was very apologetic and we were given a couple of free glasses of wine. Overall it was quite enjoyable but for the money you do expect exceptional!"
    dined on 14/08/2014
  • "A really lovely time, really good food. First time in a while I have eaten inside tyhe restaurant and I think I still prefer the outside."
    dined on 13/08/2014
  • "We needed to have a quick dinner before a show and the staff were very informative and efficient. The steak was delicious as always. We had the tasting plate which had some great steaks of great quality. The only quibble is that it's just barely light enough to see the menu- maybe a little more light would be good."
    dined on 12/08/2014
  • "Disappointed, Steak was fatty and over cooked, Normally one of the Best steaks in London I would say its much better in the evening I wont go back for Lunch"
    dined on 12/08/2014
  • "Had yet another excellent lunch at Gaucho Piccadilly. Food, as always, excellent. The service was outstanding and our waiter both informative and friendly. Overall a great experience. I have never been disappointed with the quality of the food and the ambiance at Gaucho. Long may it continue."
    dined on 11/08/2014
  • "The food was good, my steak was perfect, I was quite disappointed that my wife's steak had to be sent back to the kitchen three times because she wanted her steak cooked wel done. I would have expected a restaurent such as Gaucho to be able to cook a well done steak. But when they finally got it right it was good. I know everybody can make a mistake"
    dined on 10/08/2014
  • "I booked a table for me and my husband for 9.15pm as I thought this would give us plenty of time to eat comfortably then make our way to a Comedy show at 11pm afterwards. However, a table was not ready when we arrived. I understand that this is a busy time so we were willing to wait a few minutes until a table was ready. We sat outside and no one came to get us for a while so we went back inside to ask what was happening, a table was still not ready. At this point we decided to sit inside where they could see us! A table was ready after a few minutes. Unfortunately we had to eat quickly as we then had to walk to our next destination. Apart from this the food was as always delicious!"
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "Had a great birthday meal here, the staff were absolutely excellent, asked when we were seated whether there was a special occasion, and our truffles came out with a candle in them at the end of the meal. Really knowledgeable about the menu, and the food was just amazing."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "Took my nephew for his birthday and he loved it - super food (especially for fussy teens) great atmosphere and helpful staff. I will recommend to all my friends."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "Lovely food! My steak had a lot of fat init though which was disappointing for a £24 cut. Over priced but the food was nicer than most other resturants I've ever been to."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "I always enjoy visiting GG Piccadilly.. I think I have been coming since 1997. I estimated I have been over 100 times and it rarely if ever let me down. Very reliable and although not cheap if you keep things simple it won't break the bank."
    dined on 07/08/2014
  • "Phantastic dinner, even though a bit loud in the Restaurant but that is something that is probably normal those days"
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • " Food was cold and too many staff served us not knowing whether we had already ordered"
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • "Coupled with imaginative cocktails and informative service."
    dined on 29/07/2014
  • "I booked this restaurant for my partner for his birthday and was first disappointed in the lack of communication, I emailed them twice and received no response in wanting to organise a candles and happy birthday on the dessert for the night. In the end I called and was advised it would be arranged. On the night, the staff were friendly and lovely and the cocktails were yum, the food was superb and all the meals the waitress recommended was delicious, the steaks are cooked to perfection and it was great, only disappointment is they forgot about the candle and writing and ruined the surprise when I had to ask for it, but overall was good."
    dined on 28/07/2014
  • "There was a huge stink outside the restaurant from the drains. Although not in Gaucho's control, they should fill the area with fragrances and ensure no one sits near the problem. We sat outside to have a drink (which was where we discovered the smell). The table needed a wipe and carpet needed a vacuum and no one came to take our drinks order. During dinner in the restaurant our waitress and the food were both very good although a commis lent across my eating guest to take an empty plate from me. The restaurant is claustrophobic with poor lighting so I didn't notice I had been overcharged by £126.40. When I rang later to speak to a manager I was initially told to call back but I insisted I speak to someone who arranged to credit my card."
    dined on 28/07/2014
  • "Really enjoyed my time at Gaucho. Lovely steak and sides! Nice ambience & friendly staff. I would definitely visit here again. It is quite pricey, so best to go for an occasion."
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "Great food, superb service ( attentive without being intrusive) and very decandant decor - great place for groups to meet up and enjoy the perfectly cooked steaks. My only minor teeny gripe was the music was a bit too loud to enjoy the conversation - but otherwise can highly recommend"
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "Gaucho Piccadilly is typical of the chain, with its modern feel, darkish lighting and buzzy/noisy ambience. Not the place for a romantic encounter, but if you're looking for a juicy steak, well cooked, it does not disappoint. It occupies a useful middle ground between cheaper places and the really high-class steak joints in central London."
    dined on 23/07/2014
  • "Unfortunately this time around I was rushed. I had barely finished chewing my starter when the steak appeared, clearly this had be cooked before I'd finished eating the first course, as one plate went the other was immediately placed on the table. As is normal dining alone can be a mixed experience, this time wasn't so good."
    dined on 20/07/2014
  • "Booked for my mums birthday. I was impressed that they gave her a complimentry glass of bubbles. Lovely meal and ambiance :)"
    dined on 20/07/2014
  • "This is a very cool place to eat and the service here was amazing!"
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "One of the best steaks I have had for a long time, which is surprising as I have lived in New York for the last 3 years. I had the trio of medallions, and even the rump steak was tender, melt in your mouth good. The setting has the wow factor too. The wines are on the pricey side, but the selection is decent. Cannot wait to go back!"
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "The steak here has to be the best I've ever had! Great service with knowledgable waiters, the only issue was the lack of lighting. You needed a torch just to read the menu."
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "Just off Piccadilly you´ll find Gaucho, an Argentinian fine dining steakhouse (more towards the ´fine dining´than the ´steakhouse´). The service is friendly and welcoming right from the start. When I was a bit unsure about the choice of wine, I was offered a taste of three different wines to help me decide. The food was excellent both in presentation and taste. We truly enjoyed ourselves. When it started to rain just as we were leaving, one of the head-waiters ran ahead and secured a taxi for us! We will be back!"
