Steak
On the rural banks of the River Thames, in the quintessential London neighbourhood of Richmond, sits our iconic boathouse restaurant and waterside terrace, which in the summer hosts another of our barbeques. A striking centre piece of our terrace boasts one of London’s oldest Plane trees, a beautiful feature for arguably one of London’s most sought-after alfresco dining spots.

We have glorious 360-degree views of Richmond Bridge and Petersham Meadows from our well-dressed dining-room and bar. An idyllic location for those long weekend lunches after a dog-walk in Richmond Park or for gathering the family and friends to celebrate those special occasions.

So, when you next take a stroll along the towpath, join us for an unforgettable steak, sampling our superb Argentinian beef and British seafood, or relax at the bar with a glass of wine and watch the boats sail by.

    We went there for dinner last night for my wife’s birthday. We had the pre theatre set menu which was really good value and was delicious. The steak was amazing. We were served by Oxana who was lovely (all the staff were to be fair). The service was top notch and we’ll definitely be back. Can’t beat sitting by the river eating steak with a couple of glasses of wine.

    We were very disappointed overall. The food was very overpriced and there are definitely better steak restaurants. The experience wasn’t helped by finding a hair in the salad. The cost of the salad was removed and the staff very apologetic. Apart from the location by the river, it is hard to find a reason to go back.

    The ribeye steak with peppercorn sauce was an absolute delight. The butterfly prawns just melted in my mouth. The price might be a tad too unreasonable though.

    Underwhelming - such a shame but Gaucho seems to have gone downhill - food was cold - lifeless, dry chips that looked and tasted like they had come from a packet. The steaks were bland and poorly cut.

    A nice riverside location. Service was prompt. The wine was a little pricey… food was delicious (even though one of the steaks was thoroughly over cooked & promptly replaced) but a little over priced.

    Warmly greeted by a trio of ladies, shown to table with reiteration of msg ‘table is available for 1:45 hrs”. Ok serve me and I will get out on time. However, if you wanted chilled time and 3 courses and coffee than the time is not sufficient…feels like a sushi samba..eat and go. Serving staff were very good and I would 👏 your staff on the service received. Food looked and tasted lovely for the first bites but you begun to realise nothing was hot, it was warms, chips and sauces were warm to tepid, and fat was beginning to set on your plate. Why didn’t I complain? My dinner partner would have been very anxious and it would have spoilt her evening. I had already asked to be moved when a couple with dog arrived..and put the dog next to me…NOT MY IDEA OF A NIGHT OUT AT GAUCHOS..I was moved rather than the new comers..so a dog was placed above me a paying guest already seated. GREAT!! Gaucho get your policies right, Tell me you will seat a dog next to me and it’s needs are out before me. On a final point, I have woken up with this morning with a very upset stomach…since my only food was at Gauchos and I had nothing since Gauchos, one can assume whatever upset me was in gauchos food.. would I be back..prob not..which is a shame as it is one of my local favs. Thanks to the staff…you are fab team!

    Mother’s Day was a bit rushed and the roast dinner was a little dry. My daughter was unable to chew her meat. Usually my favourite Gaucho, especially in the summer. Il stick to having steak next time.

    Food was great. Felt a bit rushed, so food came up very quickly. When you’re spending quite a lot on your meal it would be nice to just be able to take your time. I appreciate that the tables had a time limit but most places do and I have not felt rushed like that. Staff were great, steaks were great like usual.

    Whilst nice in parts, in general we felt our visit wasn’t nearly as good as when we came in a bigger group in November. We were really disappointed with the sides in particular. The chips seemed like they had been cooked and reheated so weren’t nice at all, the mushrooms had next to no flavour. One of the steaks our party got was tasty, but very very tough, which was a shame. The prawn starter was very very nice though.

    I would like to thank everyone at Gaucho Richmond for such a memorable birthday, the beef was absolute delicious, all cuts of it, the sides dishes, the whole meal was absolutely excellent which is a change from most restaurants nowadays when the staff don’t seem very bothered. Highly recommend, will be back again so soon! Thank you Sam x

    Maria was a fantastic member of staff, who knew everything we asked (wine, meat, specialities), however, sadly the wagyu was overcooked, and for the price you're paying to enjoy the food, it wasn't as good as it has been in the past. It may just have been a super busy night.

    The service is really good, the selection of wines is excellent, food is good however main dishes go without any sides, and 3 tiny pieces of broccoli cost you additionally 7£. The most expensive restaurant in Richmond I’ve being so far, I find the food a bit overpriced, the rest is good.

    The restaurant crammed in as many people as possible on Valentine’s Day leaving it noisy and crowded, resulting in having to ask diners to come out of their chairs to create walking space. Not the ambience you would expect for a special occasion. Staff were nice and food was good - in general it didn’t feel very premium or special due to the rest and there are others nearby that probably offer a better experience.

    Very good atmosphere and food was lovely. Came out hot. The waitress was attentive. Given a 4 as when you go out to dinner in such a place you don’t want to be seeing a dog for the quality of money you’re paying. And yes there was a dog in the restaurant which wasn’t a guide one!
