I have been a North London resident for several years now and have thus seen every reincarnation of this Gaucho restaurant. Out goes the industrial theme to be replaced by dim chandeliers and soft electro music. The overall effect is like being thrown into an aspirational US television series.
Aside from the atmosphere, the food is genuinely delicious. The steak is fantastic and the main-course portions are large. The starters are equally delicious but you'll be disappointed if you are expecting more than a couple of mouthfulls (and at approx. £10 a starter it's hard not to feel cheated). The service can be sluggish at times but the staff are friendly and knowledgable.
Overall then, very good food, a bizarre atmosphere and a hefty bill to make you wonder if it was all worth it (but I think I will be going back).
