Despite hearing good things about Gauchos our experience wasn't great. My £50 ribeye wasn't a ribeye at all. I butcher my own beef and I have never seen a cut like it. It was full of sinew and I could only physically eat half of it. It was also under cooked. Our waiter was pleasant but spent most of his time talking to a friend who had come in to see him. The live music was good but too loud. Not the best experience!

This has to be one of the best bottomless brunches I've ever had...
Even though we were over half an hour late (Parklife traffic!) the staff made sure we were able to eat and drink as much as we wanted in the time we had.
The food is just fantastic, so tasty and moreish, we had 4 puddings and didn't even feel bad about it they were so good!
The drinks available were fabulous and so much better than the watered down cocktails you get elsewhere.
The music and atmosphere was fantastic and we had the best time.
I'd definitely go again and will recommend it to all my friends next time we want bottomless brunch.

An absolutely thrilling and fantastic experience. Went with my other four friends for our last meal out before uni and it just felt like the perfect last meal. Impeccable service complemented with a thriving and uplifting atmosphere that consistently ran throughout the night to make it that bit better. I would recommended most highly.

We spent our wedding anniversary here. The lady on reception wasn’t exactly welcoming but both our waitress and the maitre’d were exceptional. Warm and chatty. Both were friendly. The bread starter and steaks were great. The lemon meringue was forgetful and over priced. The decor is a little outdated but still has an element of grandness. The music was ok. Some of it a little too dance themed. The restaurant was busy and we could see the chefs cooking the meals. We didn’t drink alcohol. The cokes were a little bit tasteless. Overall we enjoyed the meal and I’d say a 4*

Ordered the steak platter at £100, all the steak came completely unseasoned and 3 of the steaks were left due to being undercooked, unseasoned and quite tasteless. Only place I’ve been to where the bill comes to £270 (£30 additional service charge non-discretionary) and the salt and pepper comes in sachets.. (again, necessary if you want any flavour) .. left feeling totally deflated and overall disappointed as didn’t feel like what we had was worth nearly £300. £5 for table water and £6 for steak sauce is quite laughable when ordering a £100 steak selection.

Really nice place, very friendly and service was good.
Food was very overpriced for what it was. Basically Miller and Carter with a better atmosphere and better service.
Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the food but I’ve had way better steaks for similar price or less.
