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.

It was my stepdads 60th birthday and it’s his favourite place when he comes down to visit london! The birthday chocolates at the end are a lovely touch. The only criticism was my Mum and I ordered the tuna steak and due to us wishing to have them cooked differently we were accidentally given the wrong steaks which was a minor issue but nonetheless worth raising.

A wonderful last minute dinner, very accomodating. The food as ever was exceptional. Outstanding service from Jason, really looked after us, and was kind enough to explain the history of Gaucho and the building, showing us round. Really went that extra mile, made our visit. Will definitely be back next time we’re in London.

Great pre theatre dinner, wish we had had a bit more time to enjoy it! Huge portion size for the steak main course, great value. Delicious, but starters not nearly as good.

Lovely food, slightly pricey but worth it for the quality of food. Only downside was that I just finished my dinner, put my knife and fork down and a waiter came and removed my bowl of chips which was still half full. I wasn’t too pleased as I had paid extra for them and was going to eat a few more. But other than that it was great food.

Fantastic steak as always, but Service was distinctly sub-optimal.

Early in the meal the waiter dropped and smashed a bottle of red wine over one of the group at the table, staining her clothing and breaking several glasses. To their credit, the manager offered to pay for the dry cleaning bill. However, the replacement for the smashed bottle of wine was included on the final bill (which hadn’t been drunk!), as was a supposedly complimentary plate of chocolate truffles which we hadn’t asked for, but which had appeared at the table due to it being a birthday booking. Considering the inconvenience of the smashed wine bottle, I was very surprised that we had to complain about the extra items on the bill to get them removed.

I will not be using open table again.

I was left frustrated that the deal I selected was not actually available at the time I had chosen. This needs to be made more clear. It was part of a hen do over a weekend and I had given people an idea of the budget on the assumption that the deal I had found would be available. Your website made no suggestion that the 3 courses for £30 would not apply on a Saturday evening (and if it did it was far too small for anyone to notice). There should be a warning before completing a booking if the time selected invalidates a deal. It was embarrassing for me and meant the price greatly increased. The service at Gauchos itself was amazing and they gave a complimentary glass of champagne for an error which was not theirs.

Thank goodness for a great restaurant for saving a problem caused by open table.

Incredible experience - loved the time that the staff took to educate us about each steak type, and it was probably the most delicious steak the both of us have ever had. 5*, will definitely come again.

Had the most amazing for my girlfriend's birthday....
Service was discreet, efficient and professional but still with a personal feel,
The cocktails were amazing, even if the Between the Sheets was a knock out and I felt it the next day...
The steaks were beautiful, cooked perfectly, tasty and tender.....
Overall couldn't sing your praises high enough, just hoping the other half brings me here for my birthday

Excellent customer service from the moment we arrived to departing. The food was delicious and plentiful. The sides of Cauliflower Cheese and Humita Saltena were excellent and a must. If ordering sides share them with another person as they are generous proportions. The steaks were cooked to perfection and everything was so tasty there was no need to season anything.

The waitress we had was very nice until we decided to take the service charge off the bill and leave our own tip.
Service charge is discretionary so should be down to the customer on what they decide to leave.
We still felt we left a very good tip so was disappointed when the waitress seemed very different in her mood after that.
It was my friends 50th I recommend this resturant as we have been here before for my sons birthday so was a bit embarrassed .

It seems like an odd choice for a vegan, but it was my husband's 50th birthday and he loves steak. So I went along with the plan of taking the whole family to The Goucho for a treat. I was expecting to have to either request a veggie option without the cheese/cream/egg (and risk sounding picky), or go against my usual plant-based diet for one night. However, I was pleasantly surprised! Although there was only one vegetarian starter and one vegan main on the menu, the restaurant were very happy to make me a delicious vegan salad as a starter and the bulgar wheat main course was absolutely delicious. The rest of the family enjoyed the sausage platter followed by the 'Gaucho sampler' with various sides, and a special 'Happy Birthday' truffle dessert that the waiter brought as a surprise at the end of our meal. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and I would definitely go there again.

Regarding the ambience/ character and purpose of the place NEED TO BAN coming in with running trainers and sport hoodies.
Perfect service at the bar!!
Starter was a little bit too cold, but the balance of quality and taste made it not so bad.
Steak was spot on. Nice, simple salad.

I have been to Gauchos Piccadilly several times but this is the first where I had a terrible experience. Staff were not very friendly or attentive, there was chewed up meat on the carpet floor (we had to ask twice to have it cleaned up from someone before us) and my roast beef Sunday lunch was chargrilled (burnt and chewy, not a nice cut of meat). My partner ordered the rump steak, which was lovely as always. Terrible Sunday lunch experience and I truely hope it was a one off.

Quite good food, but we were in a room with a large party who were raucous, shouting, and loudly swearing from one of the table to the other. Not at all appropriate and it ruined the ambience . Extremely expensive meal and we could have got better atmosphere at McDonalds.

Great food and fantastic service. A very interesting wine list. A little on the pricey side, but that goes with the location. Just a shame that the place attracts oligarchs, attention seekers and c-list celebrities, with more money than taste.
