    We was greeted by a lovely lady by the front desk. Who showed us to our table. The atmosphere was very warm and welcoming, we was impressed by the interior. Wayne our waiter for the night was polite and explained the process and food options in great details. He was very content to our needs. Food was served and presented well. I would definitely visit again

    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.

    So upset by the service. Our waiter was not at all friendly. It was a special occasion for my son’s birthday. Nothing acknowledged by our waiter but front of house said to us on entry it would be. Food was just plonked down, weren’t offered any condiments. Even when we asked wasn’t received accurately but didn’t care. My cocktail was taken away without asking if it was finished and it wasn’t! Our first time at Gaucho Cardiff and it just left me feeling really upset by the lack of friendliness from the staff especially our waiter. The food was actually really lovely! Which is a shame as I felt I couldn’t ask for anything to make my time eating it more enjoyable. It wasn’t even busy so just don’t understand why we were made to feel like an inconvenience. Was so upset my husband spoke to manager before we left so he was aware of what happened. Manager promised he would get back to us and sadly heard nothing since. I really hope it becomes a great place as Cardiff needs lovely restaurants but please make a special occasion’special’ 🙏🏻

    My mouth thought it had died & gone to heaven! I had the Lychee Blossom cocktail, 300g churrasco chorizo with sautéed broccoli followed by a double espresso & banana pancake. Everything was well cooked & delicious. The service was fast, friendly & efficient and gave helpful recommendations . Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for. Would heartily recommend and will return.

    Really lovely meal. The steak was beautifully tender and served with great veggies. The drinks were really expensive and overall it was an expensive experience. The vibe wasn’t as good as the Ivy. Great to try but I think the Ivy Asia is better value.

    Waitress was lovely and very friendly. However, no atmosphere in the restaurant, it was cold and the food was terrible value for money. Tried a wagu burger at £26… no flavour and smaller than the palm of my tiny hand. No cava available as advertised on the menu (apparently that was the opening menu and hadn’t been removed yet…) Non alcoholic spritz in small flute £9! Bread starter had a cheese based roll… cheese solid dry clump in base of roll. Not good.
