    Lovely server. Had trouble initially in using sign up free cocktail voucher. Until I pointed out well in date. Food average. Sunday lunch menu. Enjoyed the roasted garlic and shallot. Roast potatoes frozen. Lovely gravy. Great big Yorkshire pudding. Meat cooked to perfection but only 2 slithers for £27 and service charge. No extra sides on Sunday lunch menu cauliflower cheese etc Nowhere never as good as The Botanist.

    We have been regular diners at Gaucho’s restaurant in Cardiff since it’s opening September last year. Gaucho’s rewarded our loyalty with a complimentary bottle of Vina Patricia Malbec and a regular 15% discount, all confirmed in an email. We visited the restaurant on Saturday 8th June and looked forward to enjoying our complimentary bottle of wine. We gave our waiter (Alex) our order and informed him that we intended to use our voucher for the wine. We showed him our email, he looked at the email and seemed confused by it and said he had never seen this before and went to see the manager. He returned with the wine, saying on more than one occasion, that it was an £80 bottle of wine. It seemed to us that he thought that this was some sort of mistake which made us feel uncomfortable. We were also disappointed with Gaucho’s new menu changes regarding the steak sauces and sides, this restricts you to one chimichuri sauce and sides of just chips, mash our salad. Regarding our steaks, the steaks in themselves were of good quality, as you would expect, but the cooking of them was not of the standard we have come to expect from Gaucho. We asked for medium rare, but they came without the usual caramelised crust, this resulted in the flesh being somewhat flabby, a bit too rare and not as enjoyable as they usually are. We did bring this to the attention of the manager when he was asking us at the end of our meal if all was good, but he didn’t seem that interested. We are sorry to leave such a negative review but we were so disappointed in the events of the evening, when usually we come away feeling as though we’ve had a great night out.

    Chips arrived 10 mins after our steak. They tried to palm us off with mashed potato as an alternative because ‘they only had chips downstairs!!!’ To be honest for the money that you pay in Gaucho I would have expected better. And why when I book a table for a certain time and then turn up on time am I always expected to wait 15-20 mins at a bar where the service is atrocious?
