Gaucho Manchester is a majestic, multi-level restaurant and cocktail bar set inside an old Methodist church.

With the original organ at the helm, this is a venue steeped in history. From the open kitchen to the Art Deco glass panelled ceiling, it’s a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds.

Pull up a pew on the stage area and enjoy the sight of glittering chandeliers, or try the mezzanine for a bird’s eye view of the kitchen. After you’ve eaten, soak up the atmosphere with a drink in the relaxed bar area.

Food excellent as always - we have been to Gaucho a dozen times.
From the starters - bonbons and sweetbreads to the dulce de Leche classic cheesecake- of course, the steaks were perfect - we really like the marinaded sirloin...
Everyone who served us was very helpful - special thanks to the sommelier for helping us select a 100% Cabernet Franc that we would not have thought of ourselves.
Expensive but worth it..

Amazing quality, was very surprised when I looked at the bill, wasn’t anywhere near as much as I though it would be for the quality of food served so that was great. The service is to the highest possible quality with greeting from every member of staff passing no matter how busy it was. Definitely the best place I have been to eat:)

Went here for my wife's birthday / wedding anniversary (it's the same day). Food was fantastic, I had one of the speciality cuts and couldn't have been happier. It's not cheap but everything about the service, atmosphere and food was worth the price so I'd say it's very good value.

The steaks we had were superb but sadly the chips were very poor.They used to serve fat chips but now you are given thin chips including a number of small ones,less than 1inch long.You get better ones at Burger King and McDonalds.No whole mushrooms were on the menu only puréed.The eggs were also a bit on the hard side.Management was informed and said they would take our comments on board.We were not charged for our eggs or desserts.

I though it was a very nice meal.. I didn’t get the table that I wanted. I felt like the service could have been a bit quicker quiet hard to get attention from a waiter when needed. Overall I would go again I believe in second chances :-)

We had the electro brunch, the electro part is a DJ who was playing a lot of funk and disco earlier on then changed it up, quite loud but not so much we couldn't talk. Service was really good, we had all you can eat food and drink, it was busy but the waiting staff were still ready to replenish our food and drink as soon as we'd finished the last so felt like we got our money's worth.
Food was tasty, the churros especially good.

Absolutely amazing!!!! We had a drink in the bar first which is the classiest bar I’ve seen in Manchester, the receptionist told me numerous times I could be a model which made my day, she had bright red lipstick on and was so welcoming! One of the nicest receptionists I’ve met! All the waiting staff were amazing and even let us move table, I think our server was called Lauren or Laura but she was amazing! Recommending bars for us to go to after food, the food itself actually blew my mind we sat there for 15 mins in silence as we were shocked with how good it actually was. Can’t wait to return !!!!

The churasco de chorizo was inconsistently cooked and full of sinew/grissle. The chips were so over cooked you could carbon date them. Spinach was like a lump of mulch. The staff were outstanding but the food was average pub grub and I’m being polite!!

The food and service was absolutely spot on. We had a wonderful time. The only criticism would be the volume of the live DJ in the main restaurant, which was novel. Could be because we couldn't get a table until so late on a Saturday evening, but it certainly didn't spoil our experience!!

Once we've saved up again, we'll no doubt be back!

As always a good meal with excellent and hospitable service
Only negative is the menu change. Always enjoyed "fat chips"
A good thing to see fish has been added.

Only other comment would be the quality of the menu card used.
Always found Gaucho to be a little upmarket with the bound menus.
Now seems like any other establishment and has lost the unique feel.
