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.

Overrated steak restaurant. The service is meant to be bespoken, but the truth is that they pretend a lot, but really lack the basic manners of serving. The food is good, but not extraordinary. Don’t get me wrong, the steaks are top notch, but everything else, including side dishes, are average. Overall, quite pricey for what you get.

Love the service from this Gaucho location. Especially all the staff who treated my 1.5yr old son so well and friendly. That’s mean a lot to have a good dining experience. Of course the meat is so good! We ordered the Churrasco de Lomo 500gram and some sides. Love to spot Malbec on the winelist too!

Very impressive and professional service. The staff were attentive without being overbearing. The food was fantastic. Well worth the money. Look out for the ‘pre- and post- theatre menu’.

My experience at Gaucho was terrible! I am a very pickey eater so i checked the menu before hand and found something i liked before i booked, but thats not the first problem! After we had been seated an given our drinks the guy came round with the meat board i told him i dont eat meat so he took it away (mind you there are 3 people on the table) he didnt even ask them or let them look as if they didnt matter, then came ordering this was the main problem..when the waiter came over to take our order i told him i didnt like the two fish mains and he shrugged his shoulders, he didnt even try to suggest anything or talk to his manager and see what they can do, when i bought up the mains i saw online he said the menu had been changed 4 months ago....thats ridiculous! He then just stood there an looked at me, he was extremely unhelpful and didnt care, i would have spoke to the manager but i felt like they wouldn't have cared either so i didnt bother We paid for our drinks and left! This experience has tainted my view of Gaucho and i doubt i will go back...ever!

The food could not be faulted and is always of high quality. As we visited at 5pm as a pre-theatre meal, the restaurant was very quiet, however despite a number of visible staff members, service felt to be slow, Particularly at the end of the meal as we needed to move on to the theatre.

As visa systems crashed during this time, the card machine was unable to accept my friends payment card. The server tried several times, then brought the manager to the table to try and take payment.

The manner of both staff members was rude and abrupt. They were disinterested when my friend attempted to show that he did in fact have money in his bank account and that the issue was not with his card. The primary interest was with taking payment with little concern for customer care. As this exchange took place in front of other guests without much cause for discretion, it became a humiliating experience which removed our enjoyment from the meal. I had to pay his portion of the meal using a different card type.

While I appreciate on this occasion neither member of staff were aware with the issues involving visa transactions, every store we passed following the meal had signs clearly advising they were only able to take cash payments.

We walked in off the street and were welcomed into the restaurant. Service was great and food was even better. Service was attentive and overall it was the best meal we had in London that week. So much so that we rang our daughter and her friend who came and enjoyed their evening.

Starters first: the Tuna Ceviche was amazing (best we've ever tasted), as was the salt beef.
Mains: we would without hesitation recommend the octopus and the marinated lomo (fillet)
Wines: a superb Catena Chardonnay not on the wine list (a library wine) and a very fine Pinot Noir from Patagonia.
Service was excellent - by both the sommelier and Guillermo

Took son daughter to gaucho for his 18th as he loves a steak, absolutely beautiful interior and service is excellent, son like it when they came out with board of the different cuts of meat to choose for his steak. Said best steak he has ever had, plus my daughter can’t eat steak so she had chicken which she said delicious, if like steak and beautiful interior I highly recommend gaucho.
