We are only a block away from the beautiful Rosarito Beach, and only 45 minutes south of San Diego. Stop by and see what all the talk is about.

“CAN'T GET BETTER THAN THIS!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

I moved here full-time from San Diego and live 3 blocks from El Gaucho. I was having difficulties speaking Spanish to my student I was tutoring and the owner asked if he could help. How nice was that. This sparked my relationship with he and his wife. They are beautiful, kind, helpful folks that are incredible cooks. Many of us local 'gringos' eat there several times a month. The restaurant served "authentic" Argentinian food and how do I know, my buddy from Argentine ate there with us and told us all it's as if he was eating with Mom back home. Everything is fresh, delivered daily, and I love the open BBQ out front on the weekends. None of the food has growth hormones and the veggies are locally grown where growers do not use pesticides. This is bliss! Ask me anything and I am happy to share. God Bless everyone.

“Do not miss this incredible resaurant!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

We arrived at the small restaurant and were warmly greeted by the owners. The food was outstanding as well as the service. The grilled lomito sandwich was delectable, the beet and potato salad was delicious, as well as the bread pudding. The meat empanadas were amazing. We look forward to the BBQ this weekend. We wish them the best of luck with this endeavor!!!!

“best BBQ”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

I had the best BBQ ever, delicious cuts of meat, grilled to perfection. The side dishes are amazing too! You got to try this. The grilled Lomito sandwich is so tender it melts in your mouth.
