We...will be back …………….. with others.More
We booked a table at short notice just as restaurants were reopening from the pandemic. We were well looked after by all of the staff, the food was delicious, as was the wine. The atmosphere was buzzing and it was lovely to see others enjoying...the evening too. We will definitely return. Considering York is such a big city this independent steak restaurant has a niche of its own.More
We hadn't booked and were informed by the friendly and efficient staff that they could accommodate us but the would need the table back in an hour and 15mins. I appreciated the honesty so we missed out a starter and jumped straight to main. No...ribeye left which was disappointing, however the beautifully cooked and tender 11oz fillet made up for it. Came exactly as ordered. The only reason this isn't a 5 rating is because the veg served with it was frozen mixed veg which was a tiny bit of a let down. It is quick and easy to chargrill some mushrooms or a tomato which would have finished off the plate. But the steak was to die for.More
El Gaucho is a traditional Argentinian Steak House. It serves delicious fresh, free range, grass fed beef from Argentina. The restaurant is a little small but cosy, the staff are very friendly and efficient but the steaks are to die for. Beautifully cooked, succulent steaks...and very reasonably priced. The wines are reasonably priced as well. You must try this restaurant when visiting York.More
