The steaks here are great, the sides are tasty, the juices are mocktails but delicious. This is the only place I go in Kuwait for steak. Love the atmosphere, even if it is in the mall.

Seated promptly for a table of 5. A knowledgeable server explained the menu and various cuts. Everyone's meal was superb.

Med-High price range. Al Boom (next door) steakhouse had a more intriguing atmosphere...everyone should visit it during a trip to Kuwait due to the good food and overall experience; however, Gaucho's steaks were better and I would return to this location again for a wonderful meal.

I've ordered med rare , sent it back twice - was rare. If your chef can't make it- dont let him do it. I've been still asked to pay for it fully. As a apologie ive been given chocolate truffle- could not even eat that as I'm allergic to chocolate. Poor management skills, poor customer serivce,far from Gaucho standards. Would not recommend.

Kuwait's well know for its cuisine, so any restaurant which manages to stand out serving mainly steaks has got to be something special. My colleague and I went to the Gaucho on a Thursday night, the busiest night of the week at The Avenues shopping mall. Yet the restaurant was empty when we got there at 8. We needn't have worried, the Argentinian themed restaurant was a real find. I had the beef sirloin chorizo style which was sensational and my colleague had a plain rump which was equally tender and delicious. Their thin, hand made chips are awesome along with very tasty grilled asparagus. All in all a tremendous experience on the food front. The service was a bit iffy: three different members of staff asked us whether everything was alright, which we thought was a bit excessive.

Kuwait's dining options are abound, but they're mostly all fluff, very little substance. The Gaucho Grill walks the walk, but doesn't really talk the talk. You'll get quality meat and all associated fanfare, but somewhere along the line - from the skillet to the grill - something goes wrong and the end result is a mediocre steak that is rarely cooked the way you expect to be (e.g. medium is sometimes too rare, or too cooked).

All in all though, you'd be hard pressed to find a better steak house in Kuwait, so if you have a sudden carnivorous craving, this is probably your best bet.
