A word from Gaucho Tower Bridge
Directly located on the South Bank of the Thames, this stunning location is hard to beat in the capital. With views framed by Tower Bridge, The Tower of London and, in contrast, the elegant modern architecture of More London.

With this in mind, Gaucho Tower Bridge will make the ideal restaurant setting for a post City drink, client dinner or a relaxing Sunday brunch.

The restaurant and lounge are open 7 days a week from midday to midnight.

Diner Reviews
  • " We arrived early and the greeting was very warm and friendly. We went to the bar to wait for our son and his girlfriend to arrive but service was slow to take our order and very slow to bring our drinks - considering we were the only ones in the bar and the restaurant was not busy. When our son arrived again a slow service. However once in the restaurant service and food was excellent."

  • "We had a lovely anniversary meal here. Stunning views, great food and the waitress was fantastic - had mentioned it was our anniversary and she provided us with complimentary dessert wine and a lovely message on our desserts. I have been to a few of the Gaucho's, all great experiences, but this one will probably be the most memorable."

  • "I've eaten at Gaucho Farringdon before and had the best steak I've ever eaten plus fantastic service. Again service was great, they even gave my partner a (bitesize) cake on a decorated plate for her birthday (I had mentioned on booking) without the need for a prompt on the day. Sadly I just didn't think the steak was that impressive. Don't get me wrong,it was still nice, I've just come to expect to be blown away by Gaucho's beef."

  • "Well established chain and you get what it says on the tin - a decent, well cooked steak. One for the carnivores. "Fries" could have been crispier. House red (Malbec) was decent. Main issue was the level of the music - had to nearly shout over it to be heard. Scallops cerviche, was good but not out of the ordinary. Cheese for desert was above average with decent size portions and desert sampler was again pretty decent. Service was quick and possibly a little rushed but attentive. Great views from the first floor"

  • "Amazing Tower bridge views! Along with delicious food and very friendly staff. Sorry I'm vegetarian so cannot comment on meaty dishes, its speciality but according to people I went with, it is excellent. The ambience is a bit too dark at night but the bridge illumination compensates and makes the venue a very romantic or special occassions place."

  • "Well what can I say. It was last minute on Opentable, entrance was great, our server for the night was amazing, showed us the cuts and understood what he was talking about. The food tasted awesome! The steaks were perfect, great sides and amazing wine. Deserts were great. I ordered wines and our server suggested one was not the best but recommended an alternative, we got both and his knowledge was bang on the money. Only thing if i was picky, which i am, was that the music was really loud for such a packed restaurant so the ambience while there was just a little to much as every one was speaking over the music. I will most certainly be back, and a regular if the lady allows, when do you introduce a loyalty scheme??"

  • "Fantastic dining experience as always. Great food great service for that special occasion"
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "Service and meal was very good. Only downside was that they had run out of chicken (for a meal early Saturday evening) and didn't have the bottle of wine we'd ordered. The churrasco de chorizo was tender and was complemented well by the chips, mushrooms and broccoli."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "Great food and wine. Let's down by waiter’s laissez faire attitude. Waited ages for initial drinks and even longer for bread and olives. Table wasn’t cleared promptly, kept having to ask for stuff rather than be asked – such a shame as food is always very good."

  • "too much expensive. meat (piccana) wasn't so good. music too high volume tower sigth is what I appreciate most...but it does'n depend on the kitchen. not good for vegetarian"
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "The attention from the waiting staff was overpowering. A detailed description of each of the steaks presented at the table was unnecessary and incoherent. Constant interruption and questioning about the meal, more drinks etc. made the experience feel like hard work."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "Very impressed with the service, steak was sent back due to being cold however they were very apologetic and put it right as soon as possible. I would highly recommend."

  • "I made this reservation on behalf of Martin, and this meal was part of a company outing paid by the company (thankfully!) Good for steaks, but on this occassion I did not opt for a steak and went for a dish -whole plaice. The plaice was the smallest I've seen though it tasted alright; my cheesecake was the size of an egg. Apart from the steaks (which is ordered by weight, etc) everything else on the menu including starters and sides came in very small portions. This was not my first time at Guacho and everytime I've been there most of their diners appeared to be for business/office meals. Not value for money. Fine for business, but wouldn't go there as a family or with friends."

  • "We had a fantastic steak and the service was excellent. We had not been to this type of chain for many years and were pleased standards were still very good. A very relaxed atmosphere."
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "Waitress showing us to our table didn't know where table 11 was, as she commented 'I'm not quite sure where it is'. We were offered the obligatory water option which was fine but within 30 seconds the waitress was hassling us for a decision on drinks and we had barely sat down. When you are out for a meal you have a chat about the day/restaurant etc but our waitress seemed determined to interrupt that at every moment she could. When we were forced to order drinks we just wanted cocktails and she commented 'so you are not having wine'...'no we aren't'...'really' was her reply as if it was a prerequisite of the meal. Food was awesome but we were hurried out of the door and had to ask the manager to fill our water up."

  • "Perfect service at Gaucho. Staff were friendly and attentive. Ate the best steak I've ever eaten. Drinks were rather pricey though."

  • "my family came to Gauchos on saturday 21st June as a 50th Birthday treat for my husband. we have been once before but this time was even better everything was perfect and the meal was extraordinary.Thanks so much"
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "Lovely restaurant and service, however, steak had to be sent back 3 times which resulted in us eating separately, which rather spoiled it."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "staff and meals are very nice. we liked so much in the restaurant ambiance. Steaks and wines also good."
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "If you like your night-life and you want to get "in the mood" beforehand or want to organise a group party and go somewhere for the ambience and the view then this is the place for you. Hip surroundings, friendly attentive staff, quick service gets you fed, out the door quickly and in a good mood. However, If you like your food and wine or want a romantic and quiet conversation then go elsewhere. The music was loud, the wine choice expensive and limited and the food average to good. I didn't feel like I had a bad evening, the staff were fantastically attentive but at a £150 plus tip, I would have expected more from a restaurant overall."
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "I went to Gaucho with my girlfriend for a romantic dinner during our weekend escape in London last Saturday. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very nice and the personal very polite especially the Aziz who was taking care of us during this evening. I've booked a table for two online and called the restaurant a few hours before to change our arrival time for a later one. My request was accepted without a scratch. We were first seated downstairs which allowed us to order a first drink then we've been taken upstairs to I believe was the best table for a couple, with a direct view on the London bridge. The presentation, the food and the wine were perfect - we share a delicious 800g piece of meat to share. I would recommend it to anyone!"

  • "I went with a party of 4 to celebrate my birthday and none of us left disappointed. The main reason you go to Gaucho is for the steak and this lived up to the hype, in fact I wouldn't hesitate in saying that it was the best steak I ever had. The meal wasn't cheap, but if you like steak you have to give Gaucho a try."
    dined on 11/06/2014
  • "Last minute looking for an anniversary location. Heron Tower and Shard were all booked up and had been to gaucho before so decided on Tower Bridge one. Asked for window table so could have Tower Bridge in the view and was accommodated with request even with such short notice on booking. Staff also aware that this was anniversary meal and all congratulated us when we first came in and throughout our meal at different stages. Hosts were nice and waiter gave the usual steak lesson about the different cuts. Steak was really nice, chips hard and had to ask for new one, rest of the food was all good. This is not the place for romance, more business meetings and casual dinners at a price. Not the type of place to revisit, once is enough."
    dined on 09/06/2014
  • "This restaurant enjoys an enviable position with view of the River and Tower Bridge. The service is somewhat slow, but we weren't in a hurry, happy to sit and enjoy A relaxed Sunday lunch. What I can't understand is how a specialist steak restaurant, can't manage to serve 7 steaks and 5 portions of Chips that are all HOT! Our starters were fine, although I think that £8 for a single Chorizo sausage is excessive! The chips came up piping hot but the steaks? Well, they varied between tepid and stone cold and the whole lot had to go back. Then they came back in instalments! By this time, we had eaten all the chips, but they did give us more without being asked, and the manager provided free deserts as compensation. It wasn't worth the cost."
    dined on 08/06/2014
  • "We went to Gaucho Tower Bridge as a celebratory birthday meal and it j was simply amazing. The food and service is superb and the location at tower bridge is just beautiful.. If you are lucky enough to get a table by the windows you get to enjoy the view as well as the fanastic dining experience. I would strongly recommend to anyone wanting to enjoy a special evening that isn't too pricey. "

    dined on 05/06/2014
  • "Table was available when we arrived. Service was attentive. Food was fair/good but unremarkable, given the cost. Wine selection was broad and varied. No complaints."
