Excellent service from the moment we arrived. The bar area is well designed and the restaurant area itself is very impressive in what appears to be a converted church with high ceilings and an open kitchen.

Absolutely delightful. Expensive but well worth it. I’d say the drinks were overpriced but the food was outstanding and my steak was beautifully cooked. The music was loud enough to have to raise your voice in conversation but not overbearing.

Would 100% recommend.

4 of us came for a 50th birthday celebration so we had the best thing on the menu, a sharing platter EACH! Waitress came back and double checked we'd ordered the right thing. It wasn't a mistake and the 4 steaks were all huge and incredibly tasty. 1.2kg of steaks, a rib eye, a sirloin, a fillet and a rump. With chips, salad and lots of sauces. Amazing meal, no time pressures and constant due diligence by the excellent staff.

Extortionate price for what you get.
Should be more refined than this. Decor too white and black, toilets need revamp but food was served on time and steak cooked to perfection. There’s very few places that give you a proper steak! Probably won’t go back though. If you go just get the main course steak and go and finish the night in a bar or order desert in another restaurant and explore.

First of all it was very drafty. We needed to cover our legs with our coats. Our wine glasses were not washed at all. Mine was covered with lip marks and fat residue. Waiter was kind and he brought us a fresh bottle with fresh glasses. It looks cool but poorly managed. We will not go back.

Sadly service was not good, and seriously overpriced for drinks also got the order wrong and it was early and very quiet so no excuses. It was supposed to be a special evening sadly it didn’t deliver gutted and £250 out of pocket.

We was massively dissatisfied and disappointed with our meal. We spent alot of money on food that was tasteless, had very little flavour, a deep breath has more flavour and it was all actually burnt. The chips were practically inedible, they tasted as though they'd been cooked and then warmed up in the microwave and the burger was hard to chew!
To be quite honest, it spoilt our whole night.
Would not and will not reccomend at any level

Our previous experiences of Gouchos have only been in Amsterdam so we thought we'd try closer to home and visit Manchester. Initial impressions were very positive on arrival. Nice ambience in the bar area. Seated with table service drinks whilst we waited for the table. Massive surprise when we were taken through to our table in the restaurant. Very large, spacious dining area with amazing decor and architecture. Music was a little loud but not off putting. Our table host Peter was very friendly and attentive. The fillet steak was fantastic as expected but a few disappointments in comparison to our numerous visits in Amsterdam. The breadboard would have been improved with the addition of an olive tapenard. Would have preferred steak chips instead of skin on fries and wasn't too fond of the king oyster mushroom with garlic and thyme. Amsterdam's soy and honey dressed mushrooms are much tastier. Thought the prices of the food and drinks were a little expensive and didn't like that there was a 12.5% service charge automatically added to the bill as we prefer to tip as we feel appropriate. We did question this charge and were told it was optional. If this is the case then surely you should be made aware and given the choice before the bill is requested. Overall though, we had a lovely evening with the best tasting steaks we've ever had.

Wonderful attentive staff from the moment we arrived and had a drink in the bar to the table service, the wine recommendations were spot on. The Scallop starter (which we all ordered) were perfect. Goes without saying the steaks were stunning.

We had the set lunch menu and were disappointed overall, particularly with the main courses. The Salmon dish was tepid and lacking in size. It would have benefited from a small portion of potatoes/fries/rice. The steak was cooked perfectly but presented entirely alone on the plate. A garnish would have improved the presntationation massively.

Having eaten at the restaurant on a number of occasions, and loved the food and service, we decided to book again for a special occasion.

It should be noted this last visit had been a Monday, the previous visits usually had been at the weekend.

No real interaction via service.
No explanation about meats and cuts available, as has happened previously.

Beef had been undercooked for the Sirloin, having requested medium. Fillet over cooked having requested rare / medium.

Sadly on this occasion, it was very much over rated and far too expensive for the overall experience.

Voting with our feet and locating and a an alternative in the future.
