Outstanding service. Food and cocktails were amazing. The best starters we’ve had at any restaurant (tuna and sea bass), steak was perfect and they made my boyfriends birthday perfect, even a cute little dessert with a candle to celebrate, can’t wait to dine again soon!

Thank you to the chefs and all staff at Gaucho

Great food, excellent choice, cocktails were delicious. Shame they were vacuuming around customers when it wasn’t necessary - but it didn’t spoil the evening.

My meal was fantastic but my husband’s sirloin was very chewy and we took it away in a napkin to dispose of so we didn’t offend anyone but considering the bill of £160 not too happy

I'm an enthusiast for the Gaucho brand; I think they generally do offer a taste of Argentina, a view I base on a fair few trips to that great country and visits to many good restaurants there. Steaks are usually well above the generally rather ordinary level found in the UK. The wine list is better than good and currently contains a number of top rate examples of Malbec (of course) and also the underrated Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay which Argentina does so well. The Manchester branch as so far impressed me with the location, room (so much better for an aged gaucho than the London equivalents) and friendliness. Sadly, this last visit was less memorable food wise. The Ancho was poorly trimmed and the server didn't seem willing to pick up this criticism; the cooking could also have been better. Chips were very poor. So by all means go to see this attractive venue, because they can and do get it right here, but I can't guarantee they always will. Great, great wines though!

Fabulous service and on the whole the food was amazing. The sides were a little small for the price but were good aside from the spinach which just overpowered with lemon, but the staff apologised for this and removed from the bill with no expectation of them doing so. Overall a fantastic meal and evening, thankyou we can't wait to return ❤

We had a great first time at Gaucho, everything was outstanding. The food itself was well seasoned and the steaks were perfectly cooked. Our server Nora was very attentive and took the time to explain the menu well (thank you Nora for being so lovely!). There was entertainment for a little while - a singer and guitarist, which we really enjoyed. We will definitely be back soon!

Our first and last time at gaucho. The steak it’s self was good but you would be expecting that for the price, however everything else such as side dishes were below par.

Nice restaurant, service was excellent, food delicious, but for the main course I've asked for my meat to be well done, unfortunately the meat came completely burn. Didn't really enjoy that, but starters and dessert were really nice.
The atmosphere was cool too.

Hannah was amazing! We chose Gaucho for the ambiance and that was amazing, then the food, drink and service surpassed our expectations. The hostesses were wonderful and accommodating to us (my sister is pregnant). The section manager introduced himself and everything was seamless. Gaucho came highly recommended and it did not disappoint.
