To be fair, the meat served at Gaucho must be the greatest meat ive ever eaten. It was tender, juicy and overall a great food experience. Would recommend the house wine, worked well for our party of 8 with different cuts of meat. The dessert also had high quality, would recommend both the cheesecake and Fondant. We will visit this restaurant on our next trip to Manchester 100%

Steak is delicious.

I would not take Vina Patricia 2008 next time. Would look for younger versions or other wines

We were disappointed with our experience at Gaucho; not because of the food or service, which were very good; moreover it was the clientele which let the restaurant down. Most of who would not have looked out of place in McDonalds. We had to ask to move tables because the two “gentlemen” we were sat near were drunk and their language offensive. The staff seemed powerless to address their “singing” especially when it’s not an inexpensive restaurant to visit. We wouldn’t therefore recommend and we won’t be returning which is a shame as the steak was amazing!

Steaks and main courses excellent and decent value for money. Starter choice average and quite pricey. Ordered the sharing sausage starter, cost £20 for 3 sausages, expected more.

Very limited halal options which meant that we couldn’t enjoy the full “Gaucho” experience; this could be made clearer during the booking process potentially? We only had the option to have one item from the menu.

This was a gift for my partner. He loved it and also plenty of choice for myself as I don’t like steak .

For the food yes I would recommend Gaucho to a friend, however for the atmosphere and setting I would say there are much nicer places to visit in Manchester.

Absolutely amazing experience from start to finish. The staff are the most welcoming and respectful I’ve ever witnessed and even one of the hostesses kept me company during my short period being on my own. The food was outstanding, couldn’t have got much better for the whole experience!

Will 100% return

The restaurant is beautiful, the place is very nice. The empanada we ate at the beginning was horrible, but the main course and dessert really delicious. The girl who attended us was very kind and always smiling.

We loved our food and our service was excellent.
The restaurant lacked a little atmosphere but I think that’s Because it was Valentine’s Day.
I had emailed and informed your staff over the phone that it was my daughters 21st but was disappointed with the lack of attention for her .

Really good service (12.5% gratuity automatically added) and high quality food. You won't be disappointed by one of the best steaks in Manchester. Really good side dishes too: personally recommended the sautéed mushrooms and grilled longstem broccoli.

Valentines meal but overpriced and food wasn’t as value for money as you could get from Miller & Carter. We usually order a chateaubriand and we did at Gaucho yet we paid nearly double what we would usually and we don’t feel like the food was worth double the price. The starter was luke warm and we were the first guests there for lunch so no reason why the food wasn’t hot. The service charge of 12.5% is excessive and not a reflection of the overall service received. I think the service warranted £5-10 tip not £20. Decor and ambience was lovely.

Realised Thursday evening is one of the best time to visit; The live music performance is just perfect for whatever occasion and it covers all genres of music. The food was succulent, the service was amazing and the restaurant was immaculate!

Such an amazing restaurant... I use to work for the sister company CAU before it closed down and have to say Gaucho is far better. Staff were lovely and food was amazing. Steak melted in your mouth. Live music was also great and just the right volume for valentines day meal.

I would recommend Gaucho to every steak lover!
The acoustic band was brilliant as well. Lovely atmosphere x

Myself and my son really enjoyed our meal and the drinks we had. I would definitely come back and would recommend to friends. It’s been 1 of the best restaurants Iv been to and the little birthday treat my son received at the end of our meals was so nice just topped our night off

I cannot fault the ambience as it is classy and sophisticated. However, the music was too loud we could not hear ourselves think or talk to each other. We were having to shout. Maybe because it was a Saturday? Not sure since it was my first time. I ordered a medium rare 400g Ribeye Steak and was disappointed as I was given a medium well and it was too chewy for me. I did not bother returning it as I could see the kitchen was very busy. I totally understand as my husband is also a chef. Our server Anna was wonderful and paid attention to our needs. Overall, I don't think the price was worth it £40 for an Argentinian steak with peppercorn sauce. Disappointed.
