Apart from the fabulous food that is on offer, what sets this restaurant apart from your usual dining experience is the service. It really is second to none. As soon as you walk through the door you are made to feel welcome as if you’re at a friends house for dinner. All the staff were friendly and courteous. They made sure you had everything you needed. They even kept topping up our water glasses! Also they made sure that my daughter knew the gluten free options and gave her a treat at the end for her birthday
We are planning our next visit soon!
Thank you!

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Our server Charlie was excellent. Only criticism was that is was a bit noisy and felt we were shouting at each other at times.

Had an excellent Friday night out at Gaucho, Edinburgh. Food was great and service excellent.
We ordered two drinks and they provided alternatives without mentioning at the time of order.
Hand selected wine list but on the expensive side.

The service was second to none from the minute you walk in the door to the minute you leave & the steaks are show stopping & cooked to perfection........ A little disappointed with our choice of starter but that's just down to our expectations.....

I would describe gauchos as distinctly average...I thought it would be something special to treat our friends...it was too dark to read the menu (needed the torch on our phones) the starter menu required a bit of translation, but the authentic Argentinian waitress was difficult to understand (although very lovely and friendly) there are only so many times you can ask her to repeat herself...we were all a bit disappointed in the starters...we all ate steak and they were very tasty, as expected..however with the grand total being £340 for 4 people, I would have expected a bit better.. Sorry gauchos...

Food and service were very good. However, I was surprised when a family sitting nearby brought out a McDonalds for their child to eat at the table.

Excellent food and service. My wife and I both thought our table at the back wall was very dark. We both found it hard to read the menu. Especially the meat pages which are grey.

Eaten in Gaucho many times before but first visit to the Edinburgh restaurant.
We had cocktails upstairs and then moved downstairs to the restaurant. The service was so attentive and the waiter guided us through the menu.
Food was delicious and steaks were cooked perfectly. We were celebrating a special occasion and were ‘given’ some drinks which sadly we found we were charged for. I do hope this was an oversight. So while I recommend a visit, do check your bill.

Best steaks in Edinburgh in a welcoming restaurant with a modern decor and good ambience. As usual, staff are very attentive but never intrusive, and the food is of exceptional quality.

we love Gauchos and regulars to Richmond riverside restaurant. We enjoyed a lovely meal and was looked after fantastically by a guy (forgot his name) who used to work in Richmond restaurant. He even offered me a bourbon whiskey (would of been Scotch but I am a fan of bourbon) on the house as is was my birthday which was a lovely touch.

After telling my family for months how good gaucho was.. I was extremely disappointed. I booked a table for 5 people at 9:30pm through the app, so we arrived at about 9:10pm. I was then told that I had booked 2 people not 5 and that they never had my table. I showed the email that was sent for my confirmation, but was told that someone with my name called up and cancelled.. waited till 10:25pm for a table even though I was told it would be 15-30mins max. We were all starving, so went straight for the food as there was no one left in the restaurant by the time the food came out, it was as if we were keeping all the staff there. I’ve eaten at a few gaucho and regularly use the one in Leeds, but I’m afraid I was let down severely in my home country. When your spending £300 on a meal you would like the service to match the price. I’ve just heard there is a chop house, now that is a proper steak restaurant

Attended for a late lunch bank holiday Monday. Restaurant was quiet and peaceful. Lunch menu good selection of appetisers and mains. The sirloin was the best most tender I’ve had in recent memory. Good sides. No room for dessert. Wine was lovely. Will be back for dinner.

This was my first time in Goucho. At 2.30 on a Saturday afternoon, I would have expected it to be very busy. However it was so empty I thought they were about to close, therefore the atmosphere was a bit flat. This was puzzling. The waiting staff and food were both very good. However, I found it just too expensive for a lunch. There are many other places in Edinburgh serving food as good, and better ambience than Goucho. Sadly, I wouldn't go back.

Very attentive and knowledgeable staff. The evening was a great dining experience.
The 28day marinated Steak was exceptional. I loved the way they presented the choice of Steaks, the different types of cut and explanation of the origin and transportation of the food itself. It was also part of the great dining experience.
The staff and food made this an experience hard to fault.

Cheers

Amazing service! Recommend popping for a drink beforehand, although the waiter was dodging around and ended up having our drinks order taken by the host who was very friendly but didn’t know the order, nor even what ‘Jack Daniels’ was! The food was delicious and our server was fantastic, but the wine had also been oxygenated. Nevertheless a brand new jug was brought over with no fuss! Although there was a few hiccups the fantastic staff and extremely high standard of service fixed of all in a flash!
