6.of us ate here tonight for business. This is not part of Gaucho that we have in UK but is about on par. Tonight everyone's steak was cooked 1 below what was asked but still really tasty. Good service and reasonable prices.

Went there for dinner on a business trip. Very nice looking place with a very rich menu. I took the waiter's advice and picked a good steak - which was excellently made. My dinner companions enjoyed their's as well.

I stumbled across gauchos when looking around Utrecht with a colleague. In entering the premises down some steps to the canal, we were both impressed with the decor and warm feeling as we entered. The staff are very friendly and seated us quickly. The menu was a great design and the choice was great. I opted for the all you... More

We were here with three, on an average Thursday evening. This was not the first time we've been there, and every time we went on other days than weekend days to avoid sitting in a packed restaurant. The food was great, Starters were on time, no hurry. The main courses were great, steaks were great and lamb rack was cooked... More

We had a nice time and especially the Lomo steak was good. I like the atmosphere here more than Gauchos in Eindhoven ( been there also a few times). Maybe because the restaurant is situated in a cellar. The steaks are very well but I don't recommend the spareribs. On my previous visit I took spareribs and it wasn't tender... More

The steak was very good and tasteful and we were friendly welcomed. Besides that, it was a disappointing experience. The place is packed with tables, people are crammed inside. The air is thick of grease. We had to wait a long time for somebody served us. Then things got even worse. We hadn't finished our starter when our main course... More

At this restaurant they want you to leave as quickly as possible. We literally were not even half way through our starter when our main course arrived already. The meat was tasty, but both the fries and the corn were cold. It took quite a while before we could ask someone for hot food. We again didn't finish the main... More

Good and friendly service. Excellent food. The presentation for types of meat very useful when you are not sure what to order.

It's a nice place especially by Indian sommer weather. Enjoy the terrasse along the canal. Food, meat is ok. Staf is nice. So perhaps could you test another restaurant along the canal.
