The steak ordered was very good. However given the price Gaucho seems a bit pricey.

Really disappointed that you offer a Sunday lunch and advertised it “served until 5pm” however even turning up at 3:50pm and being told we don’t have any roast dinners available and being told we should have got here earlier doesn’t help the situation. We then ordered a steak instead and couldn’t have one of the sides again due to being sold out. Not a great experience considering this was booked back on the 12th April.

For an outside dining experience, it was one of the best so far, even with the weather not being so great, they had umbrellas for cover, heaters and the staff provided blankets, which was a nice touch.
Cloudy bay wine was superb aswell as the steak. Staff were also attentive.

We booked Gauchos for my Fiance's 25th birthday. When we got to the restaurant we were told we could not sit under a parasol with a heater and had to sit somewhere else, with the chances of rain (and the wind was VERY bad!). Although we were offered a hot water bottle, it was FREEZING and the whole meal there were at least 2 tables free with the heaters and parasols! The manager then told us it was the restaurants policy to not move customers to another table!!! It was too cold to even order a glass of wine to celebrate my Fiance's birthday! We ordered food and it came up with TONS of hair strands in .... one strand.... i thought i'd ignore this... but 6-7 strands found became unacceptable in a chicken breast meal.... so the waitress took it away. I then waited for over 30 minutes for my meal back. In the meantime, my fiance had finished his meal, and all of our side dishes were cold! This was one of our worst experiences at Gauchos. We are regular customers and certainly will not be rushing back anytime soon!!

very disappointing that it was not possible to change the table and sit under the heater. It was very windy and we were freezing. a few tables got free and at that point, we didn't even order food so it would have been easy to move us but nope, we have been told it was not possible! Also, it was not mentioned anywhere that it's 'mandatory' to order a main EACH! We wanted to share several appetisers ( in the end we would have probably ended up paying more than the mains) and we've been told we were 'forced' to have a main each? WHY? Also, if that's your policy specify it! Despite that, the staff was super accommodating and the steak was good despite having to eat it in the wind which made it cold in 5 sec. Too pricy for the quantities and crazy expensive for the service charges. I thought was a rip-off but as the staff was very nice I decided to give them some credits. Not the greatest experience. I won't be going back.

Not enough heaters or even covered tables - not great on cold rainy day.
Blankets were available not not enough - heaters and fully sheltered tables should be available.

The service and the food was really good. We asked for our steak to be “welldone” and it was totally juicy and not burnt . The Mac and cheese was lovely so was the prawns. The service was really and our waiter made us feel totally comfortable. I just wish they had overall provisions for tent and heaters outside as we didn’t get a seat under the tent.

Food amazing. Service - pretty good. Let down: it was freezing and they didn’t provide blankets until much later - ran out, and only 3/4 tables had heat lamps. They should at least have had enough blankets for everyone.
