A thoroughly enjoyable Anniversary meal with excellent service. The steak is excellent. We appreciated that our Anniversary was recognised (Happy Anniversary written on the plate with a complementary sparkling dessert wine). Thank you

After visiting this restaurant before my husband and I decided to return for our anniversary. We have 3 young children and very rarely get out making this a special occasion.
Staff were very attentive.
Starters were lovely , bread is amazing.
I would say our steaks were very chargrilled on the outside making them hard to chew. Which is exactly the opposite of last time.
Some of the skinny fries also had no potato in them just crisp!
I was so looking forward to the cheesecake as last time the waitress poured the hot sauce!
This time the entire dessert was straight out the fridge. It was freezing , the sauce was thick and very cold!
On this occasion I was very dissapointed and could mot recommend it to anyone.
Such as shame as thought this was going to be a long time favourite.

Start to finish a wonderful evening.
We were greeted by friendly staff and showed straight to our table downstairs.
The decor and atmosphere gives a luxurious feeling and we were well looked after throughout.
The food at Gaucho is outstanding - the most tender, delicious steak imaginable.
Although on the expensive side - it’s worth every penny.

We’ve been to Gaucho in Edinburgh several times since it opened a few months ago as we had visited a couple in London previously and thoroughly enjoyed them. The dinning room is without a doubt the best in Edinburgh, being very plush and opulent, if you like that type of decor, I do. The lighting is very good creating a great atmosphere. You can eat reasonably (300g rump at £20.50) or spend a small fortune on the 400g marinated fillet at £50. If you can afford it, it’s well worth giving it a try. Choice of chips, both fat and thin and a choice of sauce are included in the price. If you like steak I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. However, I have also been there for lunch with some friends and they insisted on cooking the burger I ordered well done and it was therefore extremely dry and fell apart looking like and tasting like unappetising mince on the plate. Our last visit was slightly disappointing however as they have reduced the menu and our favourite starters have disappeared, I can only assume they were not big sellers in Edinburgh?

This was one of the best meals I have ever had and was simply perfect. If you like steak then this is the only restaurant for you, all others are an imitation. The only issue was it was quite loud and a little difficult to hear the waiter.

The food was amazing. The portions were very decent and the stakes were really fresh and properly cooked, on the way that we asked for. The chips were fresh and not precooked. Broccoli was very fresh, juicy and boiled appropriately. The sauce that escorted the broccoli matched perfect. The peppercorn sauce for the stakes was really tasty and matched with medium cooked steaks. The wine was of really good quality and didn't cause us any headache. The waiter was very kind, helpful and always there to serve us. He helped me a lot to choose the right wine for the lunch. The dessert was a lemon tart which was very fresh, and because the lunch was to celebrate the birthday of my lovely fiance, the chef surprised us with a very inspired idea; he wrote with chocolate happy birthday and the way he served the tart was really professional. I strongly recommend GAUCHO for any occasion. Of course, you need to keep in mind that is not cheap restaurant, but they really worth the money they ask. The food, service, atmosphere are of high standards.

Superb! We have dined in 2 other Gauchos and several times over the years and this location offered the same quality food and service that we've come to love and respect. The welcome was friendly and all the staff engaged us in genuinely interested conversation. Their knowledge of the food and wine is second to none and we thoroughly enjoyed the sausage platter to share as a starter and then a sirloin steak each (cooked as recommended to medium) with a selection of sides and sauces. Dessert cocktails to finish rounded off a wonderful evening of culinary expertise. Totally recommend this place.

Definitely the place to go if you appreciate excellent steak, although there are other options available. They only offer wines from Argentina, but no complaint as the recommendations from the friendly and knowledgable staff were excellent. Make time for a cocktail in the bar before heading downstairs to the restaurant. Both venues offer great surroundings and every member of staff we came into contact with were lovely.

I first visited this restaurant in December for a friends birthday and was so impressed I booked it for my own birthday celebration. I'm hoping it was an off night but when you're paying for an excellent dining experience, that's what you should expect. I wonder if they were down on staff as the restaurant wasn't that busy but the manager (who was excellent) kept having to jump in and help wait at our table. Service very slow. Food not as good as last time either. No recognition that it was for a celebration either, not that it matters, but it had been at my friends dinner.

Best restaurant food in Edinburgh, by far. The service also excellent. There a small delay in delivering a cocktail so they din't charge it at all.
Price, high rate, but you really getting what you pay for. The best food in Edinburgh so, far.

I just loved the ambience in Gsucho and the waiting staff were 2nd to none, the food we ordered was amazing, the only issue we had was that the rump & sirloin steak was a bit salty, unlike the fillet which was beautiful.I would certainly recommend this restaraunt to a friend and we will certainly be returning.
