GAUCHO SET MENU 12–7PM: Two Courses - £21.00 | Three Courses - £24.50

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.

+ excellent food
+ friendly Service
+ georgeous ambience
+ stylish furniture
- music much too loud
- very drafty due to open door, which has not been closed despite several requests
- plates have been taken away while others were still eating
- one of our coffees looked like soap water, how can this be served?

Always a great night. Service is fantastic, food is great (although not quite at as high a standard as it was on previous visits) and it just has a great feel. Dimmed lights, good noise level without being overbearing. Great place to celebrate special occasions.

Loved this restaurant for a really relaxing, but elegant dinner with my friend. The staff are really friendly and helpful, they clearly know the menu and the wine selections and are attentive without being disruptive.

I was impressed with Gaucho City and would really recommend this venue for any occasion!

Delicious steaks, probably more for a special evening occasion or expensed business lunch considering the price point. Staff very knowledgeable and respectful of our private conversation. Lots of room and toilets were immaculately clean.

I went for dinner at Gaucho City on a Monday evening and loved the whole vibe, decor, food and service. The noise level was too loud (it was a Monday) and we had a lovely time. The food was brought out fast and Joanna was very friendly and informative. Will definitely come back!

The waitress honoured the price fixe menu despite it being Valentine’s Day and them not being supposed to do it - this wasn’t clear on booking so it was kind of them - and such great food at excellent value. Thanks Gaucho x

Nice welcome, good ambience. Pushy staff, constantly filling wine glasses when asked not to. Had the rump steak and sirloin set meals. Pleasant enough and well-cooked but small and came with just chips. Nothing else. Not even a garnish or salad. Bottle of water was delivered and charged for; also requested tap water but this never arrived. Total for 4 people having the early evening 2 course set meal plus 2x cheapest bottles of red wine was 162 pounds. The waitress was disappointed that we didn't increase the added 12.5% service charge.

Great 21st birthday dinner for my daughter. Amazing quality steak . Fantastic service from a Francesca . Brilliant deal on Mondays where you can take your own wine and there is no corkage charge . Loved it and would definitely recommend.
If you like steak go to Gaucho !

You pay for a bread basket and it wasn’t really much of a choice, 1 sliver of white bread and 2 tiny cheese hard rolls. The waitress brought the still water to the table with it already opened, it should be opened at the table. The chips were limp and warm not crispy. They also had the skins left on but also had the black bruised bits. Major put off.
The only saving grace was the steak and peppercorn sauce.
The dessert was labelled as a lemon tart but in fact was a lemon meringue tart. No decoration on the plate or even a spoonful of cream offered.

Went for a special meal, so suspended my usual frugal nature. It was a wonderful meal in and of itself, the wine selection was great.
Be aware the side dishes are far from generous.
The meat is cooked superbly.

Overall a great meal out if not trying to avoid bill shock.

I have a dairy allergy and in-spite of informing the restaurant when booking I was not catered for. We were eating on the special offer set menu. As I have a dairy allergy I could not have the bread, only one choice of starter with no dressing, no dessert and there was no allergens menu. The staff were guessing whether there was dairy in the food which is not acceptable. After talking to the Manager we did get about £15.00 off the bill. However I would have preferred to have enjoyed my food rather than have to complain and not been given a choice. Steak was delicious.
The law requires all restaurants to now have an allergens menu - why does Gaucho not have one? Staff did not care or understand the consequences of eating dairy.
The restaurant could have contacted me to tell me they could not cater for me.
A very poor experience.
