We went here as this is one of the restaurants that is opened before 9 pm in Madrid. To our surprise, this was really good. We ordered steaks and they were on par with our best local Argentinian restaurants in the US. Service was outstanding at this restaurant, which is hard to find in Madrid. We were 6 and everyone agreed that we had to add this restaurant to the recommended Madrid list.

On our last night in Madrid we were looking for somewhere near our hotel (Liabeny) and chose El Gaucho because it looked like something different from other restaurants and tapas bars we had been to. We were shown to a table down near the back of the restaurant and the evening of excellence began. The complimentary sparkling wine and gazpacho and the amazing friendly and efficient staff got us off to the perfect start. We all had steaks and each was served exactly as we requested, were beautifully-presented, and tasted fantastic. Too full for desserts we were nevertheless delighted with the (again complimentary) sorbets and Digestifs. Thanks El Gaucho for making our last night in Spain so memorable.

We were attracted to El Gaucho because we like Argentine food and it was near our hotel. We were there early for dinner in Madrid and were seated immediately with no reservation. The dining room filled up while we were there. The shared grilled artichokes were tasty as were unexpected extras that appeared during the meal. My husband enjoyed sirloin and fries and I was delighted with the caprese salad. If you have room for dessert, try the lime sorbet with cava.

We go to Madrid once a year, and every single time, we eat here at least 3 times. Since 2007, the food has been delicious, very well presented, the atmosphere lovely, and the service impeccable. Have NEVER found any fault. Thank youso much forthe lovely memories over the years :)
