Gaucho Set Menu: 12–5PM 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.

This place is an awesome option for a special occasion. We have been at the back table, which you can see the tower bridge view. Course menu can be diversified, which is not adequate. They do nice rib eye and sirloin
In contrary to Price is a little expensive, the ambience of the restaurant is gorgeous

A rib eye steak, 2 vegetable sides (£5 each), peppercorn sauce and a sparkling water for just over £50 (including their gratuity which was included on the bill already). Overpriced for what it was and left a little on the hungry side!

Steaks were alright, we weren't happy with Sirloin though, on medium-rare it wasn't juicy enough and was bitter at times. Rib-eye was great though.
Selection of wines is good, bottles are overpriced but given the venue is mid-range+ that is expected.
Service was great, helpful personnel.
Overall, it is OK value for money, great to go for a date but not a place I would visit regularly, there are better quality for money Argentinian places in central London.

Gaucho Tower Bridge was perfect. The setting, the staff, the food it was all so perfect. The young lady that takes care of the cloak room (didn’t catch her name) and our waiter Christian are so lovely. They helped make the evening with their friendliness and happiness.

Table for two was only reserved for 1hr and half which we weren’t warned about, so we’re asked to leave before being able to order a dessert, despite getting our starters 45 mins after arriving so they expect you to eat three courses in 45 ish minutes. Noise level was louder than expected for this type of restaurant. We were also not asked about allergies before hand and had to ask after receiving the food as we thought the allergy was in the food and allergies weren’t stated on the menu.

Took our son for his 18th birthday. From the minute we walked in everything was perfect. The welcome we received on arrival, lovely cocktails in the bar, the most amazing view of Tower Bridge from our table, the food and the service was outstanding. We took a while to decide where to take our son for his special birthday and we are so pleased we chose Gauchos and can't wait to return.

Great steaks but you only get two hours and they are asking you to leave great food and service but being told your time is up is a bit off putting.

The service was extremely slow. We arrived and was greeted to be told that we should go upstairs and so we did. We then waited 5 minutes for no one to greet us there. We finally got seated and were sat under extremely bright spot lights. The servers felt cold, we ordered 2 fillet steaks. One rare and one medium rare. They both came out medium rare... gauchos has gone down hill.

Went for festive menu they hadn't heard of it even though I got an email advertising it, waa meant to be 3 course menus with glass of rose and festive games. We were so excited after lockdown meeting with family. Have been ro Gaucho's many times before and know the drill of meats etc. Our starters were awesome .....mains especially steak ones were beyond disappointing for the first time ever had to send both our steaks back as they were substandard. Tough over cooked rump and undercooked grey sirloin. For an Argentinan steakhouse and one I've visited many times in different locations was utterly disappointed. Desserts and espresso martinis were good though. Such a shame 😞

Terrible cut of steak not a fillet. Waiter knew nothing about the wine and took a long time to bring drinks and bread. G&T had no or little gin. Disappointing experience for anniversary

Everything about this place was so good. From the moment we walked through the door to the moment we left. Outstanding customer service from the host all the way to the waiters. The food was lovely and the view was even better, 10/10 for everything, I’d definitely be going back.

Here for my girlfriend’s 21st, we both had steaks cooked different and they were perfect. Service was swift and very welcoming and the view from our table of tower bridge was picturesque, they even brought out a little personalised dessert free of charge for my girlfriend. Quite expensive as a pot of sauce is £3 however it’s perfect for a special occasion.

A bit disappointed for the quality/price.
When you pay 50 pounds a steak you don't really expect to pay for some extra sauce.
Nice environment overall.
But we won't come back.

The food was great except the sticky toffee which was dry, the service was slightly unsettling and i had to ask 3 times for the same drink before it was brought to me 40 minutes later and the woman serving us was slightly rude. We asked to clean the table in-between food and she refused saying she can’t because of Covid. What has that got to with Covid? Such ignorant excuse to not do something. That really put me off.
