Great environment for a great steak. Friends first visit - first taste of rib-eye and in his words “like butter”.... always a good crowd in.

The welcoming staff were very nice. We were shown to our table after handing over our coats for safekeeping. Our table was very unstable but we were given another table once the waitress was aware.
The lighting is very subdued, so a little hard to read the menu. The waiting staff were extremely courteous and efficient, and the starter sausage board was well explained to us. We both had steaks and they were superb!! The wine was also very nice.

We booked at Gacho for my husbands birthday and we were not dissapointed. We had a lovely time and the staff couldn’t do more to help . The food was delicious and we felt welcomed and not rushed . The restaurant is stunning and they even brought out a birthday plate with a candle at the end . Would definitely go again.

We caught the tail end of the electro brunch , unless you love dj and trendy whilst eating great as you won’t be able to hear anything else . The bar area is small so you might be best drinking elsewhere until it’s time for your table . The steak was outstanding and cooked perfectly . It’s a busy place on Saturday nights. The decor of is upmarket and classy even if a little chilly if your under the sitcom. Would defo visit again for the food .

Beautiful restaurant, the only down fall was we booked a table for 3:30 and waited almost an hour. Bar area is VERY small so nowhere to wait, and there was a group of woman taking over the bar area so struggled to get to bar for a drink. The food was lovely. I would love to come back but the only thing that puts me off is booking a table for a time and not getting seated at the time

This was the first time attending Gaucho and we attended to celebrate a late valentines lunch. The table was booked for 3.30 and we arrived around 3.15 being told to wait at the bar. After 3.30 we had still not been seen too and having asked the original lady who told us to wait she said she would check and come back to us and didnt. I then had to ask 3 different ladies about our table until someone finally came, apologised and showed us to our seat around 3.45pm. It then took us a good 20-25 minutes before we got someones attention to order food and drinks, this is not acceptable especially having been seated late. The food was lovely overall and ambience of the restaurant was nice, however for late lunch the noise level was too loud especially with the DJ playing. We could barely hear the waiters or each other and felt this ruined our mood. I think for the lack of service and the time it took for us to be seated and receiving our food, we received no sincere apologies or something to compensate for which is very disappointing, especially having spent quite bit of money.

Gutted after hearing the rave reviews, my fillet steak was rather tough and not cooked how ide asked for it. Could not fault the service from staff though, prompt, very helpful and polite. Dessert was amazing. Cheesecake is a must.

Very nice food. Attentive waiters. very surprised to get in at short notice on Valentines weekend. Only criticism was the state of both the ladies and gents toilets. Not great for a quality restaurant.

The second time that I've been and our order was forgotten! An hour after ordering I had to remind the waitress that our starters were yet to arrive. Both separate times of day, this was a relatively quiet lunchtime service rather than the busy Friday evening when we visited last time. Rather than being apologetic the waiting staff blamed the delay on being short staffed. We asked to remove the discretionary tip and won't be revisiting for a 3rd time.

Nice ambience over lunchtime. Wonderful pair of steaks for my friend and I perfectly cooked amongst the very best I have ever eaten.
Found music a little loud, but recognise this is usual in Argentinian Restaurants even at lunchtime! Would strongly recommend

My husband and son enjoyed the meal - I was underwhelmed as I was looking forward to the swordfish - which was off the menu. I do not eat meat and the 2 vegetarian dishes both contained gluten. The waitress was very helpful and managed to get me a salmon salad - which was a lot of money for a basic salad.


Would not rush back

We made a reservation here for my husband’s birthday. We had high expectations and were not disappointed.
The service was excellent - knowledgeable and friendly, whilst also being very efficient. The food was fantastic - steaks were perfect and the sides were delicious.

Will definitely be back again! Highly recommend

Steak is amazing. Why oh why they've stopped making hand cut, thick chips is beyond me and a definite huge negative. Service was so poor after the initial good start. Once food cleared didn't see or hear from anyone until advised that our table was required. Bill was served to us despite not being requested. What a shame. Liked the place so much and the steak is still the very best.

The best steaks every time! The service was first class. Lacked a little atmosphere as lunchtime and less than a dozen people in the restaurant but not enough to deflect from the food and our own company/entertainment!

I already have recommended two friends already as the ambience was fantastic. The staff was really friendly and informative on the steak cuts. My partners food was amazing he said, one of the nicest steaks. Mine however was mediocre- I had the burger. To top it off, we had a birthday touch woth churros which was great

Overall the experience was fantastic. The steak and the peppercorn sauce were the best I have ever had!
It was also my boyfriend's birthday, and staff wrote Happy Birthday on his dessert, which he really liked. One minor this would be the music was a bit loud, but we were sat next to the speaker, so I imagine in other areas of the restaurant it was fine.

I made this reservation for my fiancé’s birthday quite last minute and had little choice for times to eat but booked the 17:15pm slot, as this was the latest there was left. I thought we would be greeted, seated and then rushed to eat to ensure the ‘prime time’ bookings could be seated on time, how wrong I was! From the minute we stepped through the door we were treated impeccably! Coats taken at the door, seated and served throughout like we were the only people dining in the whole restaurant, but they were full! Attentive enough so that we had what we wanted, even poured our wine when our glasses were empty without any fuss, we didn’t even know she was there, absolutely perfect service! The meal was exceptional, my fiancé eats steak ALOT and he said that it was the best steak he had ever had. I made no hesitation to tip when the bill came, we had an excellent night and we have recommended to all our friends. We will not think twice to book up for upcoming occasions. Exceptional!

Fabulous food as ever!
Steak is always the star of the show here, went a little earlier than normal arrived just as electro brunch was finishing - thought music may have subsided a little (only downside) but overall you can’t fault the good at Gauchos !
Service is always on point and nice touch that the manager always comes over to say a few words too !

It was such a shame as the food was excellent however the music was extremely loud when we arrived just after 4pm. I purposely booked after 4pm as the website clearly stated live DJ. Having to have the waitress literally shout to us to get our drinks order we queried why the DJ was still playing - shortly after he did finish but then the ‘background’ music still continued at a volume whereby we still struggled to hear. I would say approximately half an hour after our arrival the music was turned down to a more appropriate level. There was no toilet roll in the ladies and even after we had reported this to a lady in charge we returned to find 2 toilet rolls thrown on the floor in the one cubicle - leaving the other toilet without any!?

I had booked our visit as a special occasion and someone recommended your restaurant as ‘somewhere special’. Well I’m sorry but attention to detail was very lacking which generally took the shine off our experience as a whole.
