Steak
Gaucho Set Menu: 12–7PM Two Courses - £22.00 | Three Courses - £25.00

You’ll struggle to find a better view or steak along the Southbank than at Gaucho Tower Bridge. Our restaurant soars over two, magnificent glass-fronted floors with panoramas of the historic London skyline with the Tower of London and Tower Bridge taking centre stage.
In warm and uncomplicated interiors, Gaucho Tower Bridge is the perfect location for guests to enjoy dusk to dawn dining, with our menu showcasing impeccable Argentinian steaks and Latin American plates. Our terrace, secluded cocktail bar, and private dining rooms offer a tranquil yet sophisticated experience with beautiful views across the River Thames. We cannot recommend enough ordering a bottle of one of our premium wines, taking a seat at the window and watching the sunset riverside.

Finally went to this spot with my partner and it was amazing. Our server Christian was very attentive and friendly which made the night more relaxing. The tagliatelle mushroom was flavoursome and the chips perfect! The view of Tower Bridge was breath taking and added to the ambiance if the evening.

Dreadful food. Had to send steak back first time as it was well done - had ordered medium-rare. It took them 20 minutes to bring a replacement after promising 5 minutes, resulting in my wife eating by herself. The replacement steak was not the original steak cut I ordered on the menu. This was also over cooked.
The starters - my wife had ceviche - This was definitely NOT ceviche. No leche de Tigre (lime juice based), had tomatoes and not watermelon as was stated on the menu.
I had scallops. They were cooked ok, very bland and served with oats which is very very misguided. It was like eating breakfast cereal with 2 tiny scallops amongst it which is a little sad for over £15!
The wine was nice. But it should've been for £60 and the one thing that Gaucho didn't make/tamper with themselves.
The entire bill was £170 for 2. I would've begrudged paying even £70 for that shambles. A steak restaurant that cannot cook steak properly.

Absolutely outstanding experience here over the weekend. We went on a Sunday to celebrate my 30th birthday. We asked in the booking if they might have a nice table for us, and when we arrived not only did the colleagues on the door wish me a happy birthday, we were seated in a lovely booth and given complimentary Prosecco. Our server was fantastic, he really knew his stuff about what we were ordering and was able to advise based on what we wanted. Drinks, service, and food all absolutely fantastic - we will definitely be returning!

Just okay! Unfortunately both myself and my partner where disappointed to be told at 19:00 that they had sold out of their Sunday roast. The substitute food was good but not what we had hoped for as we’d been told it was to an excellent standard!

Further to this we where billed with a service charge of £20.00 which left a slight sour taste! As i didn’t feel the service was as good as most places we had eaten which hadn’t enforced a service charge.

It was a great steakhouse. However I had asked for my steak well done and got medium rare. It was my friends birthday and we had a booking for a bar later that evening therefore I did not have time to correct the order. Service charge was added on and I refused to pay this. The man rudely said it’s only £... looking down on us. I had explained I asked for well done and did not get this but I did not have time to correct the order as I was in a rush for my next booking. He then had an attitude and took the service charge off. Also service charge is not mandatory! There should not be a problem with not paying this. Overall the restaurant was nice with a nice view- apart from the Service.

Waited ages to be served. Ordered a bottle of sparkling rose and was told they had run out. Offered a white substitute which was not really anywhere near the same as it was £52 instead of £30. Also roast lunch was no more than average. I have never written a negative review before by the way.

Disappointed from the the moment we were sat at our table. Made a reservation for five people, but we were squeezed on a table which fits four. The service was slow, from start to finish. Overall disappointed.

I feel the outdoor area does not represent the same standard of comfort as the indoor area. The tables and chairs could have been cleaner and all tables should have umbrellas. Feel the outdoor area should be made an extension of the indoor area and feel you are getting the same experience.
However the staff, service and food were fantastic as usual!

Not as good as first time, clearly economising ,,,booked lunchtime special but had to ask and did not match up to offer online. No bread or other nibbles and £50 for a very average wine which was supposedly a Gaucho "favourite" on the wine list. So £130 later not a great experience. Also listed on my booking was my birthday , not even a cracker to celebrate this ....dissapointing
