Proudly situated in the Hampstead Village community, with its quaint alleyways and perfectly preserved Georgian buildings, Gaucho Hampstead is a neighbourhood retreat in North London.

A stone’s throw from Hampstead Heath, our welcoming and contemporary interiors are the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed lunch, an after school treat or you can join us with the whole family on a Sunday for one of our legendary roasts.

One of our favourite features of the restaurant is our stunning, courtyard terrace with a traditional ‘Asado’ fire pit – where we barbeque in the summer and snuggle with blankets in the winter.

For all you Hampstead dog walkers, four-legged friends are always welcome for when you are snout and about.

    Provolone cheese was too hard to chew, beef was not the best. Too expensive. Gratuity is included as a percentage of the total amount. Won´t go again

    Always wonderful. We had steak tartare, waygu burgers and the fillet salad. All delicious. Even the cheapest wines are fantastic. Sometimes I love a restaurant because it is dog friendly. Gaucho would be five stars without. 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟.

    Fantastic experience. It was our first visit and it certainly won’t be our last . Our server was amazing, she showed us all the cuts of meat available, explained how they were prepared by the chef along with recommendations for on how to have them cooked by the chef. Best steak we have ever tasted!!!!!

    My partner and I have celebrated our anniversary and we chose Gaucho for this purpose. The atmosphere was very nice, we were made feel welcome by our host Sinzi and we followed her recommendations from the menu. They made our day even more special with a celebratory desert and prosecco. Our host Sinzi was very attentive and she made our visit to Gaucho a memorable one.

    My companion and I really enjoyed lunch at Goucho's in Hampstead on Sunday last. The food was excellent. The staff were friendly and attentive but not intrusive. The ambience was relaxed and pleasing and the restaurant though busy was not noisy. We will most definitely return.

    No where better for a steak. I’ve tried numerous times to replicate what Goucho can do with a good quality cut of beef but to no avail. This is where we come for a big celebration - on this occasion a zero birthday and they very kindly wrote a birthday message on our dessert plate with chocolate. It’s where we go to feel special and spoiled. Thank you G

    We were seated at a table for max 2 people. Totally unacceptable. By the time we ordered water, wine, starters, mains and side dishes it was impossible to fit everything in. Chairs were horrid. You couldn’t move them. SO heavy! And SO low my husband is very tall and when he sat down it was like the table was his chest level. Don’t think we will visit Hampstead Gaucho again soon!

    As always a 10 out of 10 meal and 10 out of 10 for service. We had an afternoon lunch booking. There was only a few other tables booked so the restaurant was nice and quiet. The staff were very helpful and friendly as always and a manager took his time to come and say hello to our table and to check everything was okay. The food was excellent as always and actually better than the Covent Garden branch we met at the week before.

    Our waitress was really rude, the moment we sat down she said we had a hour , rushed us, no smiles, added bubbly to our bill when we didn’t order. It was my son’s birthday,despite my notes when booking, we were made to rush , wasn’t personal. Good thing the food made up for the awful service.

    The chateubriand which was £110 had to be sent back as was cooked poorly and chewy and rare, quite difficult to do really. The sides were very poor the chips were cold and the mac and cheese was horrible and so was the spinach. The churros de lomo was very tasty but overall extremely disappointing considering the bill was £1000

    Everything from welcome to service to food was excellent. Only comment I’d make otherwise related to boring repetitive double bass noise in music. Ambience was great without it when occasionally it stopped. The buzz of satisfied customers created the right ambience. Thanks for great meal. B

    Restaurant was quiet on Saturday for lunch. Service was friendly and attentive and food was good quality but really impossible to justify the £300 price tag for two cocktails, two starters, two steaks, sides and a bottle of wine. Left feeling disappointed to have spent this much with a chain knowing that a Michelin tasting menu would have been similar.
