I did lots of research before I booked the meal as it's was my wife's SPECIAL birthday. In brief the staff could not have been more helpful and took the time to explain in depth the make up of the dishes. The food and more importantly the Steak on offer was second to none, it was without doubt one of the best steaks I have ever had ( Ribeye ) and all four guests confirmed the same. I would without doubt recommend this restaurant for an amazing meal in a lovely setting and location 10/10

Had a really nice meal for my birthday. Staff could not have been better. Steaks were good but chunky chips were more like roast potatoes because they were so large! A little under cooked as they were a bit hard but ate them anyway. Over all had a really good time. Shared a dessert and they wrote happy birthday with chocolate on the plate. Nice touch.

One of the best steaks I've ever had. Fillet - Churrasco De Lomo was stunning, fantastic flavours and cooked perfectly. Sharing breads and dipping oils as a taster to start were also great. Starters were great too (I had the Provoleta) but if you're ordering a larger steak for a main meal its a lot of food to get through but well worth it all. Really good cocktail menu too, a Penicillin rounded off the meal nicely, wasn't quite able to squeeze in the Zombie. Next time tho! Service was also fantastic and attentive.

It was a great evening, we were running late so we asked if could move our reservation an hour later. I know how busy this restaurant can be but they happily held our table for later. On arrival, all staff was polite and very accommodating. We were seated in a lovely area, our waiter explained the menu in great detail. We don’t always dine out and not wine drinkers. However the waiter was extremely polite and attentive. He carefully explained and made some great recommendations too. Should we back in Edinburgh we will definitely be going back regardless of a special occasion.

Great time visiting gauchos , from walking in the door , the staff were friendly and attentive and decor is really cool and sets the scene for a good evening.
Pablo our waiter was great all evening, in recommending meat and wines, he was friendly and gave us the right amount of service effortlessly.
The food was exceptional, we shared the chateaubriand (700g ideal for two hungry people) which was cooked to our liking. Sides were good and recommended wine went down nicely.
This is our second gauchos visit , we have also eaten at one in Leeds which was great as well, so we roughly knew what standard to expect or at least hope for and it did not disappoint. It is not a cheap meal , but for the standard of service and quality of food, is well worth the price.

Gaucho, where everything truly is about the Argentinian beef. Respect for the product runs through everything. From the 'show and tell' of different cuts to recommendations about the best level of cooking for each cut, staff are well versed and enthusiastic about the eating experience. The enthusiasm is more than justified. Huge portions of perfectly cooked beef served with generous side portions and sauce (one of each included with each order). At around £40-£50 (and stretching to £100 for shared cuts) per steak, the prices may seem steep but think about it as a special occasion outing and you'll properly feel as if you've had areal treat. Despite being absolutely stuffed, we troughed our way through dessert and we were glad that we did. Dulche de leche cheesecake was indulgent and divine and my normally non-dessert eating companion had a lemon tarte that was declared superb. We were in Gaucho spending some gift vouchers we were given for a wedding present and the restaurant gave us a glass of champagne each by way of celebration; a lovely touch. For us, we would consider Gaucho a 'special occasion' outing … it is certainly too special for everyday!

Our experience of this particular restaurant (Gaucho Edinburgh) where we knew what to expect from experience of Gaucho in London, lived up to expectations. Excellent steaks, although with a caveat about the wine prices, but the meal was made really worthwhile by the attention, service and general attitude of Charlie, the serving waiter, and the overall politeness of the staff. Highly recommended.
