SquareMeal Review of El Gaucho South Kensington

An offshoot of the long-running El Gaucho on Chelsea Farmers’ Market, this steakhouse also flies the flag for Argentina, with a wagon wheel at the bottom of a wooden staircase, a photo of football legend Maradona on the walls and artwork depicting rural life in South America. It may be a touch Disney, but El Gaucho’s steaks are the real McCoy: thick slabs of well-hung meat, imported from the home country, arrive at the table pleasingly charred, with juicy grilled peppers and thick-cut chips on the side. Other Argentinian staples, such as terracotta bowls filled with sizzling hot grilled cheese or juicy chorizo are also proudly in evidence, while bottles of native Quilmes beer show off the restaurant’s patriotic stripes. ‘No fuss, no snobbery, just some of the best beef in town’, noted one homesick sudamericano crying for Argentina.

El Gaucho is a simple, small restaurant in South Kensington. The beef is excellent, the waiters are polite and efficient. No fuss, no snobbery. Just one of the best meat in town. And good value for money.
