    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?

    We were placed at a table next to an empty DJ booth - not brilliant but not is use. The ambience was more cafe than restaurant. Staff were attentive but rushed off their feet. Food was good, but not outstanding. The atmosphere deteriorated when a DJ appeared and took residence next to our table - we moved to be further away, but only measured in feet! Put a dampers on the experience. At that point we just wished to leave as soon as practical. The bill was high and was not worth it. Avoid the Gaucho and choose another establishment and seek better value for money

    Best steak we’ve ever had and the chips were really flavoursome. The restaurant itself was a really good atmosphere and our server was very helpful. We were served our starter and main in under an hour so really quick service too! We had mentioned in the booking it was our anniversary and they had wrote ‘Happy Anniversary’ on our dessert which was a nice touch.

    Amazing food, we couldn’t fault the food as it was truly impeccable! I had asked for them to do something for dessert as it was my girlfriend and I’s 4th anniversary but nothing was done unfortunately, and we were offered water at the start of the night, which we thought was complimentary and it ended up being £5 for the bottle, so that was quite a surprise to end the night!

    Everything was average, I found the bill very expensive for what we have eaten. I have had better meals in Miller & Carter if I am totally honest. Also, the fact that the restaurant added the 10% service to the bill without asking, I think is unacceptable, especially because Gaucho is already an expensive place. We still enjoyed the evening there, but I don't think I will return.

    We booked a table for 12pm but we're not seated until 12.20pm. Even though there were empty tables for 4 people visible everywhere. I ordered seabass and it was over cooked and dry. I did not complain because we did not have time to have another fish cooked. My friend said his burger was also very disappointing. He orders the burger in many restaurants and was expecting better. We spent a lot of money and it was not really the lovely treat we were hoping for.

    All the food was amazing I have a really small appetite (after surgery) so asked if I could order from the children’s menu to which the staff said “ did I want the colouring book as well”. Thw starters and breads were all lovely. The 4 people with me ordered 2 graucho combos which were stunning. I opted for a side which was 1/2 lobster which was really nice The staff were ok waited 15 minutes for my drink I could see on the bar, asked the waitress twice for it.

    First time at Gaucho . The waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable and took our order quickly . The first two wines we ordered were not available, we asked him for a recommendation as he looked a bit embarrassed…and the recommended wine was lovely. The food was delicious , lovely ceviche , tartar and empanadas to start (the wagyu beef one stood out) . The steak , secreto ibérico and wagyu burgers were delicious and perfectly cooked . The sides were really tasty , especially the chips and spinach. We enjoyed it thoroughly. The lower score on ambience is down to the music , which was too loud for our taste . It was Mother’s Day lunchtime and there were families and babies , not sure the loud music was needed. They had a lovely touch, giving all the tables around us a little gift box , which we noticed contained chocolates . Pity the lady failed to notice our table , in the middle of the room. Feeling ignored or undeserving of this gesture was the only bitter taste on a an otherwise lovely occasion , hence the lower service score . I’d definitely recommend Gaucho, especially to meet lovers who want to try something a bit different in Cardiff

    Slow service understand it was busy but you would be aware how busy you are and staff adequately. Drinks took a while so sat there with nothing way to long. Starters were spot on. Mains tho we received out meat but then no sauce and sides missing, took a while to get someones attention then we was told it wasn’t on the ticket but it was ordered and read back to us. Food going cold waiting for sauces and sides then when it came we basically finished. Really disappointed then to have to pay for them £470 bill for poor service and the food wasnt what it was in previous visits. Spoiled a good day unfortunately.
