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.

Great food, great service and priced well. We were pleasantly surprised that one of our group was able to dine in a T-shirt and shorts. They made us feel welcome regardless that we were underdressed.

Very noisy very hard to have a conversation across the table . Would probably try one of the others in the chain to see if quieter.

The staff were very helpful and friendly, explaining each dish and advising on cut of meat etc. The wines were excellent. The steaks perfectly cut, medium was medium.
Will return to this restaurant or another Gaucho.

We ordered the prime rib, which was decent, and the Picana. as an Argentinian steak place we had hoped it would approximate Brazillian steakhouse decently, but it was out of range for this otherwise fine establishment. It may have not just been the preparation, but the meat quality (we had what appeared not a choice cut of picana). The prices are moderate, so I suppose that's not unexpected, but at these prices pure-play steakhouses in my humble experience have been quite a bit better. I'd open-mindedly try Gaucho again, as I suspect I'd be dragged along.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our early evening meal at this delightful venue just off Piccadilly. My fillet steak was absolutely perfect and my wife’s chicken spatchcock was tender although she felt it was a little dry. Overall an enjoyable pre theatre experience .

Everything was good, and the service was great - just wasn’t quite blown away by the experience. If viewed as an upmarket chain it would be fantastic but needs to be cheaper. If viewed as fine or sub fine dining, more attention needed to the sides. The beef is a star, but a little let down by the supporting cast.

My wife and I had a fantastic evening. The food was incredible and the service was the best I have encountered. Ali our waiter was attentive but not in our face, persuasive without being pushy. His knowledge about the food and his confidence made the evening brilliant.

Everything was amazing! We came to celebrate a birthday, the atmosphere was amazing including the staff. Very helpful and kind. Amazing service. I did have to wait a bit while they were dealing with other customers but other than that I have no complaints everything was so delicious! Our compliments to the chef and I will definitely be coming back!

We shared the Gaucho sampler between three of us: it was the right amount of meat and all steaks were excellent. The fillet in particular was great.

Me and my partner visited the resturant for my 21st birthday. I could not have asked for a better experience, I felt absolutely spoilt with the waiter that we had.

We had booked our table several times as we kept becoming later and later on in the evening, they were absolutely fine with it and managed to still book a table last minute at 10:30pm.

Absolutely outstanding experience our waiter was the loudest person singing happy birthday to me.

Not been to Gaucho in a while but the Piccadilly restaurant has a lovely al fresco area. The steaks were, of course, excellent and this is one of few places where you can get a decent-sized steak 😋.
The service was also excellent. Yes, it’s a bit pricey but you get what you pay for.

Our meal was fantastic. Gaucho's staff were ready for us when we arrived and the waitress was really pleasant and attentive. The food and wine were absolutely delicious and I have no complaints about the service or the food at all.
The only downside was where we were sat. It was right next to a pillar and didn't allow for a view of the restaurant.
