Gaucho reviews

By Tej S.

great service and staff are very polite and accomodating! Definitely will go again and again, after having been twice already! Food is perfect and atmosphere is high class all the way!

By Guy M.

Absolutely brilliant. Great service- waiter was nice, efficient and was keen to impress.

Very comfortable and atmosphere was fun. Great people watching- some obviously very wealthy, and good looking people eat here. It felt like the happening place to be.

Food delicious. Wine Delicious. Expensive (ish) but worth it. Tipped the waiter 20quid, as was hugely impressed with his effort and attitude.

Faultless. 10 out of 10

Gaucho’s Richmond branch serves up prime Argentinean beef in a funky, romantic surrounding. It may not be easy on the wallet but with top notch food, wine and service to match it is worth splashing out on.

The Venue
The restaurant occupies an idyllic riverside location. The decked terrace area enjoys unspoilt views of Richmond Bridge and with few close neighbours, the venue exudes a sense of exclusivity that is sure to impress. Inside Gaucho manages to pull off cowprint wall hangings whilst still retaining an air of sophistication with plenty of dark wood and candlelight. The restaurant is an L shape with a small bar area just beyond the entrance. Floor to ceiling windows maximise the view of the Thames for those lucky enough to get a window seat.

The Atmosphere
Even early in the week the restaurant can get busy and it is well worth booking ahead. There's a pleasant buzz of diners who are enjoying not only good food but the experience of dining out and the crowd is a mix of mostly young couples and groups. The excellent service begins from the moment you walk in the door making it hard to believe that Gaucho's is part of a chain. The staff are knowledgeable about both the food and the wine and take the time to explain the menu and make recommendations. Furthermore, your glass is unlikely to stay empty for long.

The Food
After the wine has been poured and the breads laid out the waiter brings out a board of steaks and talks you through the cuts and sizes available. However, the comprehensive menu proves that there is more to Argentinean cuisine than steak so don't make your mind up too early!

Starters include empanadas, a street food favourite in Argentina, a selection of sausages and ceviches. The Fire and Ice lives up to its name, combining spicy jalapeno and cooling coconut with juicy shrimp. The only complaint might be a slight skimping on the lobster but it is a small criticism of a delicious dish. Main courses include both chicken and fish but unsurprisingly there is not much for vegetarians. The monkfish is tender and delicious although the radish side salad does not add much in terms of imagination or flavour. For meat lovers though, the steak is by far and away the best choice. The high quality Argentinean beef is cooked exactly to specification and there is a good range of side dishes to chose from. If you want to know what a great steak should taste like the churassco cuts come highly recommended by staff and patrons alike. The meat is spiral cut and marinated for 24 hours to produce a steak that really does melt in the mouth. You may think you are too full for dessert but the traditional churros with a dark chocolate dipping sauce are so moreish that you will find room to squeeze them in.

The Drink
The wine list is both extensive and accessible with wines grouped and explained by grape, although prices can run into excess of £50.00 a bottle. They also offers a selection of affordable wines on its own exclusive label that encompasses all the major Argentinean grape varieties. On the other hand for real wine buffs there is also a list of fine and rare wines available. The waiters are happy to recommend but Gaucho's own Malbec is a delicious red to enjoy alongside the steak.

The Last Word
Forget oysters and say it with steak. Gaucho's Richmond location offers a perfect chance for red-blooded carnivores to show their softer side.
