Tucked away in a little known side street off Piccadilly this Gaucho Restaurant provides a bit of the Pampas and Buenos Aires relocated to the heart of the West End. As you soon as you enter the restaurant the aroma of meat sizzling on the open grills hits you. As well as steak we do offer a selection of other dishes including fish, chicken, ceviche and vegetarian options.

At Gaucho we pride ourselves on the basic philosophy of provenance. To us this means authenticity, assurance and rigorous attention to obtain the finest quality ingredients at source. This dedication ensures that every time you visit us, you experience the true essence of Argentine cuisine. Its food, its wine, its culture and importantly the passion of its people.

Decked out in cowhide, mirrors and chandeliers we offer a full range of Argentine cuts of luxury beef, including the tender Bife de Lomo, aged for six to eight weeks and then flown in from Buenos Aires.

Good food, nice selection of wine, but asked for one wine in the menu, and was offered a poor substitute because they were out of it. Had to ask for the meat to be cut, which they did gladly

I have visited Gaucho 2 times, the first time was unforgettable everything was perfect. This time was terrible, the steaks were good but the noise level was stressful and we could not talk together and we could not hear what the servants said. Gaucho is not recommended anymore.

Excellent steaks. Probably amongst the best in London. Starters were a bit disappointing and to be honest I wish I had gone straight into the main course. Good atmosphere and very helpful staff.

Service was exceptional. The restaurant is nicely decorated but not over the top.
The set menu was reasonably priced, but the individual start and mains were much more expensive.
The oyster starter and ceviche was good if a bit expensive.
My sirloin wasn't the best sirloin I've ever had. It just seemed tougher than expected, rather than soft. I only had it cooked medium.
They did make an exceptional effort, as it was for my wife's celebration. They gave us some complimentary truffles and champagne, which was great.
Its a good, but expensive.

Amazing steak but that’s it. Over priced and cheesy setting/feeling to the place. Also useless bar staff but wait staff were working very hard. I feel so sad for the brand. It’s become another Angus Steakhouse...

Turned up early and we were shown to bar, instead of being left alone in the bar a head waiter took time out to sit with us and we were helped with our wine choice and the recommendation made for us was perfect.
Soft shell crab and scallops as starters were amazing, steak as always was perfect, good size, amazing quality and cant be beaten anywhere in my opinion. The mushrooms I have to say although a very simple side dish were stunning.
We were too stuffed for dessert but the waiter brought my wife a happy birthday dessert, even though it was our wedding anniversary meal this was a very nice touch and rounded the evening off lovely.
We would normally bring our kids with us to Gaucho and probably eat here 3/4 times a year as a family so we were disturbed to read of the financial problems the chain were in. Our waiter took time to walk us through the issues and was very open and honest in his view point, really reassured us that we will continue to get the opportunity to visit Gaucho for many years to come.

Awesome food.... lovely atmosphere. The steak was divine, however, the sides were less impressive and quite expensive for what they were. Our waiter was amazing, though the floor manager was always about wanting to ensure we were having a lovely evening; some might find the manager being around too much intrusive. Overall, was an awesome evening!

The service was on point, the food was amazing but came out too quickly after the first course. The bill was corrected very quickly and the atmosphere was lovely, I was able to have a conversation and enjoyed the birthday surprise for my partner at the end of the meal. Thank you very much

This is my third visit to another one of the Gauchos restaurants and they've all been fantastic, except this time it was my Birthday and they surprised me with drinks which was very sweet! The steaks are incredible and the cocktails and wine selection should please any one, many thanks again for a fab evening!

Amazing night! Right from the front doors the service was professional, was able to have a few cocktails at the bar before sitting down at our table. Our waiter was really polite, he explained the steak choices really well and made sure we were satisfied the whole night. We were even able to go out onto the terrance after our meal, a cosy place with ambient lighting. Enjoyed the night a lot and made my anniversary a day to remember. Well done!

The steaks overall is good but the waiting time for the food is way too long. I have waited literally an hour after my order to receive my food. By the time we get our food we have already finish all the side and drinks. The environment is very noisy as well. Quality of food both the side and the main is not as good as the Hong Kong Gaucho

Had an anniversary meal with my girlfriend. Cocktails were delicious at the bar. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The waiter gifted us a happy anniversary plate with 4 chocolate bonbons, great touch.
Ironically, the only bad part was a waiter coming to the table asking us, awkwardly, about our experience in the restaurant, ruining our whole experience.
All in all, great place!

Very good meat, the service can be improved. We ordered wine, which - the waitress said- was the only one missing. And it’s often the cheap one which is missing...
I recommend it for the atmosphere and the quality of the food.

Pleasant ambience, excellent decor. Food was good quality, obviously fresh, albeit slightly over salted.
Service could have been better, had 3 different persons attending, and a drink order had to be taken by another after 20 minutes elapsed , and obviously forgotten by the original taker.
It wasnt particularly busy at the time we sat down, so limited excuses here. Got busier later though.
First offer of a table was nearest the walkway, with a whole room practically empty. Got the change though, so no major worries. Just the mere thought that earlier guests dont get to be offered better located tables
