Serving Legendary Sunday Roast | We're Dog-Friendly

Proudly situated in the Hampstead Village community, with its quaint alleyways and perfectly preserved Georgian buildings, Gaucho Hampstead is a neighbourhood retreat in North London.

A stone’s throw from Hampstead Heath, our welcoming and contemporary interiors are the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed lunch, an after school treat or you can join us with the whole family on a Sunday for one of our legendary roasts.

One of our favourite features of the restaurant is our stunning, courtyard terrace with a traditional ‘Asado’ fire pit – where we barbeque in the summer and snuggle with blankets in the winter.

For all you Hampstead dog walkers, four-legged friends are always welcome for when you are snout and about.

    Hi there, our meal came to £240 for a 500ml carafe of wine, two starters and two steaks and 3 small sides. Every element except the empanadas to start was disappointing. I was looking forward to something special and I was wholly underwhelmed.

    This is my second time at Gaucho Hampstead The first time was absolutely great and I provided a 5 star review This second time was terrible service The table we were given was extremely small for 2 adults let alone with a toddler also needing space to eat We were provided a toddler high seat which we placed on our side of the table. This semi blocked a table for 4 as the overall space was very small We asked for another seat but we were not given however we note that when another group came and declined the table for 4 next to us they were immediately moved After our meal my toddler wanted to sit on his father a bit, as soon as the manager saw this he came and removed the high seat and took it for another family - we had more time there and we were considering having dessert. I thought this was not a sensible thing to do, my son was in the seat and no circumstances should this be taken from him, he is as important as the other child Lastly the restaurant was busy yesterday with loud background music and people eating and talking The manager cane over to our table to ask my son to turn off his ipad This was rude considering the sound from the ipad blended in with the background noise and music being played in the restaurant There were no person’s sat on the table of 4 adjacent to us so who exactly was the sound disturbing There were other people at other tables having loud discussions Overall was not pleased about the service yesterday and we felt from the actions of the managers and staff we were not welcomed! I did not pay for the service charge this time. Please know how to be gentle with your customers who come there to eat and stop being abrupt and entitled!!

    Dear Sally, Fathers day is a popular day and while we wish that everyone will have an enjoyable experience sometimes we might run out of options. On this occasion your booking was for just 2 people, while we been fully booked and had no options at that stage. I also personally kindly requested to reduce the tablet volume and not switch it off, as other guests brought it to my attention. Should you wish to discuss this further please feel free to contact us on 02045999160. Kind regards, Chris

    This restaurant has gone down hill, newly done up looks lovely but that's it! everything else is not all that. They no longer bring out the steaks to show you, no longer give you bread on the table, drinks are full of ice hardley any drink inside, our waiter was extremely sarcastic, we were charged £50 service charge for four people! food was good but deffinalty not for the price, there are alot more restaurants around that serve the same if not better food for much less.

    The makeover, of the Hampstead Gaucho, gives it a fresh look. Our steaks were enjoyable however, unfortunately, one had a bit of excessive fat on it - the remainder of the steaks were excellent and very enjoyable. Service was a bit slow (the restaurant was busy) but the waiter was excellent.

    I've been a Gaucho fan for more than 10years, tried many of their restaurants in London and have been accustomed to nothing short of 5* service/food/experience. You pay a premium price because you expect premium dining. However this time I was very much a below par experience. Although the steak was cooked to order (medium-medium), the quality of the meat and of the side orders were well below what they used to offer. The chimichurri sauce was mostly oil, there was no salt on the table, the waiter kept hitting our table and glassware every time something was brought to us/empty dishes were taken away, the steaks arrived before we were done with the starters, the wine glass was served short of the 175ml that was ordered... Quite a number of things that can be improved... Not sure I'll be back to this particular Gaucho.

    I sent my burger back as it was lukewarm,the chef didn’t look pleased He put back on the grill after feeling it with his hands then used a blowtorch to heat it up.This is unacceptable, I was sitting opposite the kitchen so I witnessed it.I didn’t make a fuss as our waitress was excellent and the Sunday roast was faultless.

    Considering it was so busy and they had so many staff, drinks took a very long time. They are so keen to sell water, I’m sure they are on commission to do so, then we only ordered sparking, but still charged for still. Bread basket at £5 is poor value!! Starters and steaks were sublime - you get what you pay for and they were excellent. Service was tentative and professional Not cheap but where is these days - up market up scale and worthwhile to go back!!

    The food was excellent but i remember it being a quieter setting last time I visited. For me, the music was a little loud but maybe I’m just getting a bit old. The service was excellent and we were well looked after. My only complaint would be that the toilets aren’t very nice and my husband said that the smells from the kitchen were venting into the mens toilets. I would visit again definitely

    Avoid the 1st Sunday of every month. If you don't want to eat your £50 steak looking at barking mutts arseholes and nuts then stay away, Apparently the 1st Sunday of every month is dog friendly day so you are surrounded by canines, some very well behaved it has to be said but the small yappy ones are a real pain and ruin the experience. Other than that service was great, waitress was absolutely lovely and food fantastic.

    The food is quite good as usual. It’s the closest stable-performance steakhouse to me plus very difficult to get bookings for those central London ones, so I naturally went there for dinner. The wine service is something I had a bit of problem. First, the waitress (not somm, not sure if there is somm there) recommends a wine, which I agreed. Minutes later she came back saying they don’t actually that recommended wine. Then I picked another wine on the list. The wine was brought over and the waitress just quickly said, this js xxx 2018, without any further explanation. The wine I ordered is 2016 on the wine list. Eventually I lost interest and settled on an average cab franc from Argentina. The overall service is not bad but wine wise is not professional.
