Gaucho by name, but not by nature – this super-suave, ‘über-masculine’ riverside steakhouse is more gloss than grasslands. The odd patch of brushed cowhide is one hat-tip to the cowboys from which
the restaurant takes its name; the rest is a vision of black, glittering chandeliers and leather. This eponymous chain peddles ‘the finest Argentinian steaks’, with a healthy range of cuts from
more traditional rib-eyes and fillets to less-common cuadril (tail of rump) and lomo (tenderloin). The Gaucho sampler is always popular with steak fans, who have described it as a ‘must-do

Located a few steps from Tower Bridge, Gaucho is a restaurant offering stunning views over the Thames and of course the iconic Tower Bridge. If you want to combine fine meat with views over some of London’s most iconic structures, Gaucho ticks these boxes.The best views are from the window tables on the upper level, so to secure one of these tables book ahead of time. The restaurant is softly lit and has the ambiance for a romantic evening, while the cow hide seats bring some additional character and add a touch of luxury.
