So here am I thinking the Swallow Street branch was glitzy… As pointed out it seems that the Gaucho chain seem to go out of their way to do bigger and better each time. I was over at the O2 a few weeks back and had the rather dangerous idea of going a few hours early on the off chance I could find a walk in table at one of the many venues – being a fan of the Gaucho and all things meaty I was very happy to find that they could squeeze me in – perhaps the thousands of rock fans already at the 02 had turned vegan in their senior years?
The Gaucho O2 is incredibly sexy and seems to be the biggest and best yet. Food as always is nice and straight forward – I'd like something light to start with (ok that's a lie – I ordered the Sausage Platter), and for main I'd like a huge steak nice and tender and I'd like it how the chef wants to cook it (it was the 300g Fillet by the way). You simply cant go wrong for a carnivorous treat.Vegetarians of the non-fish kind will always be a little disappointed but to be honest in the same way you don't go to SAF looking for a steak, you don't go to the Gaucho looking for veggie options. Prices for the mains are reassuringly high although starters are a lot more economical.
Service is efficient – Presumably the staff understand that most of the patrons are there prior to an event so look after you swiftly and efficiently without compromising the standards. All in all a very fulfilling meal and I left very satisfied and rather glad that I had booked seats and not the standing area for the concert later. If you are off to the O2 I'd start the night here.
