Gaucho City is one of London’s hidden gems. The restaurant is set in the historic gold vaults of the Old Bank of England, right in the heart of the Square Mile across from the historic Leadenhall Market. Our menu features big Latin flavours, incredible Argentinian steak and impeccably curated wines.

Descending from the bustle of the banking district, join us for a more speedy set lunch or a long languorous steak dinner in our elegant private dining room. Venture a little further down to our candle-lit cocktail lounge which is the perfect spot for those after work drinks or for a spot of weekend escapism.

City is perfect for all of your social and corporate events with a plethora of dining rooms, AV and conference facilities.

It was the first time since I have been going to Gauchos City that I ever had cause for complaint.
My steak was overcooked, burnt on the outside.
The chips were dry and no one showed our guests the steak board. We had to ask for the bread and the service was very slow.
When we told the management they could not have been more apologetic and did what they could to speed things up.
I will be going back as every one makes mistakes and in general I would recommend the restaurant on past experiences alone.

We enjoyed a date night here and were both really in the mood for a superb steak. Our waitress was so friendly and professional. We both had The Lomo fillet steak which was cooked to perfection, 225g was more than enough and my steak, which was medium was spot on.
Sides were delicious ours were carrots and chips with a delicious salad all washed down with a Rioja. Perfect evening really.

Steaks were excellent and the Malbec we chose was amazing.

a bit of mix up on the steaks , mine came rare and theirs medium when we had ordered the other way around,

Good ambient noise for a business meeting, until someone decided it needed to be louder and we were near the speaker so this rather spoilt the meeting, as we had to raise our voices to be heard

Gaucho never fails in meeting expectations. The food quality is outstanding and the wine selection exceptional. Combined with their friendly, engaging staff it makes Gaucho the go to for me whether on business or for pleasure.

The food was delicious, the best steak I’ve had in a while, perfectly cooked. The set menu was very good value.
The only downside of the evening was sitting next to a table of 12 blokes

Awful food, inattentive, impersonal service which you're charged through the nose for... I'd never visit a Gaucho again, esspecially with clients... absolute embarrassment.

No wonder this place is going down the pan!

From when we arrived to when we left we were treated so amazingly. The hospitality of the staff was incredible and they staff were very accommodating and made us feel so welcome. The food was unreal and definitely worth the price. Great wine also. Would definitely recommend Gaucho. I have also been to their Electro brunch which was wonderful. Very happy.

Thank you for an excellent dining experience last Friday lunchtime. We both had the Rib Eye (Medium) and it was absolutely delicious.

Service was excellent. I also really enjoyed the bread!

Great value for money! I will definitely return.

Thanks Again, Martin

This was my first time visiting but my partner has been many times before

My steak was very uncooked they advised they can re cook but myself and my partner would have to eat separately

My partner had to send back 2 fillet steaks that were very fatty not what you expect when ordering fillet

Will not return

Really disappointed experience. The restaurant is in a basement without windows which is not clear from the picture you can find online.
The waitress started by mistaken the still and fizzy water...The starter (empanadas) was frozen, not fresh and not homemade. The quality was poor. The only upside was the steaks (rump & sirloin) but the sides were as disappointed as the rest. We didn't even bother looking at the dessert menu.
This is way too overpriced for what it is and would not recommend it. This was the first and last visit !

We came to Gaucho City for our wedding anniversary. We had a fabulous time! The service was attentive without being intrusive and the food was superb. Our server, Pauline, was outstanding and Gaucho made us a special dessert. We loved it.

Hidden in the city, this underground restaurant was a great surprise. The ambience was a bit too dark for me, more akin to a club than a restaurant, but overall the experience was outstanding! The beef is of course fantastic, but so were the empanadas and aides. The Argentinian wine list was to die for... The service was very friendly, helpful and super light touch. I was very surprised to receive 2 glasses of Prosecco as a birthday gift when we had not notified them of the occasion! Would return in a heart beat.

Very good steak although pricey. The restaurant was a little too bright for dinner. Our waitress was very attentive and personable although she forgot to bring sauces we had asked for and the restaurant really wasn't very busy! Overall not cheap but pretty good.
