£26 to £40
Steakhouse
Nestled in the heart of Covent Garden, the newest Gaucho location pays tribute to its roots, returning to London after a decade of regional expansion. Situated in an extension of the historic Royal Opera House, Gaucho is a vibrant addition to one London’s most culturally significant areas.

Drawing inspiration from the artistic spaces of Covent Garden and the passion-fueled tango clubs of Buenos Aires, the restaurant is layered with iconic design statements that reflect the cultural roots of the locality, while the base palette draws influence from our Argentinian origins.

The ground floor of our restaurant boasts a bright and welcoming atmosphere, perfect for breakfast, relaxed working lunches, or afternoon drinks.
The basement takes on a darker, more theatrical atmosphere offering a more intimate dining experience, with pleated curtain wall details inspired by the grand red-draped stage curtains from the West End Theatres.

    No welcome drink forthcoming until we had placed the food order - no idea why. We were not asked if we wanted a side with the main and had assumed we got chips AND salad but just chips, would have paid for a side if given the option. Waited 10 minutes for chips to arrive with steak sat on table. Brought all courses about 60 seconds after taking away plates so dessert arrived at 8.55 for an 8pm booking. We sent it away and asked for a break.... Ordered two extra glasses of wine and got a bill for £53 as included service for original set price. Would not do this again. Tango dancing very good though!

    Food was cold service was terrible and had no atmosphere. Why do they think they can serve you cold food? It’s a disgrace. When you go into a high end steak restaurant you expect great food this was so far from it. The waiter had a sence of humor bypass and was like he didn’t want to be working. I would not recommend this place to anyone

    The only disappointment is the volume level of the music. As in the vast majority of establishments these days, it is way way to loud. Why? We want to have a conversation without shouting and say what more often than necessary.
