Delicious meat, creative contours, great wine. But it's not an argentian restaurant, their "chimichurris" are nice sauces, their "humita" is a nice interpretation of the corn-cheese classic dish, featuring whole corn and beautifully presented. And no trace of "dulce de leche" on the dessert list....More

Situated in the Sofitel Hotel complex, it is a bit like dining in the hotel lobby which does detract from the experience. However, this is all about the steak - you would not come here if eating a good steak was not your main aim....More

Beautiful trendy steakhouse with delicious steaks. I had the steak skewer and it was delicious! Order the truffle gnocchi as a side. Perfect for Americans, they have menus in English!

We always love having dinner at El Gaucho! The food is excellent. The steaks are brought in fresh from Argentina and perfectly cooked. The seafood is also delicious. Highly recommended!

We ate here twice , once for a late night meal when we arrived and the next a more formal three course evening out with wine. Got to say the service and welcome was terrific and the food to match.
