We tried El Gaucho for the first time last Friday with some friends. We ordered two mixed platters, which were served on mini grills with charcoal underneath. All the meat was tender and delicious. The wine cold, the service friendly.

A Monday evening in (very) off season February. Only the 'inside' area operating and pretty much full by 9.00pm. For safety I would book if possible rather than 'walk in'. Roaring fire, open cooking range, tables relatively well spaced. Host working the room well (in...More
