Gaucho Broadgate

Squaremeal Review of Gaucho Broadgate ?

It might look like a tiny glass cube, but head down into the depths of Gaucho & you’ll find yourself in a sexy, sultry, underground grotto reminiscent of a 70s’ nightclub, with a slightly pokey, glass-walled cigar terrace for recalcitrant puffers. Rich, tasty empanadas or delicate ceviche of lemon sole set the scene for the main event – pampas-reared, properly aged Argentinian beef. Staff bring out the raw cuts on a board to explain the differences in taste & texture – don’t miss the spiral churrasco cuts marinated in garlic, parsley & olive oil. For pud, a scoop of dulce de leche ice cream hits the spot. Gaucho has its own vineyard in Mendoza, & its ‘well-chosen’ Argentinian wine list continues to receive plaudits; expect top-drawer Malbecs & Bonardas, plus Cabernets for the less adventurous.

Great Lunch spot but Room for Improvement

by   silver reviewer (16)

Mar 2017

I have to agree with the other reviews on this site - Gaucho Broadgate has gotten itself a reputation for being a "posh City lunch" location and has lost it's high quality dining status for serving some of the best steak in London. However, the service whenever I have gone has always been to high standards and consistent, I have planned a few friends birthday's here and always pre ordered a bottle of bubbles to surprise my friend, which has always been organised well and has been...

Noisy but Nice...

Editor's pick I have happily dined at Gaucho many a time and this time again I was not disappointed. We opted for a late (2:30pm) lunch (to avoid having to return to work!), and we were surprised at how busy the place was - and how loud! - but I guess it is nearly Christmas. We didn't leave until after 6pm so we watched the bodies and the noise level reduced over time. I was happy but surprised to see that they have introduced a set lunch menu, with plenty of variety and so we all ordered from that....

While the gaucho chain as a whole have lost their once claim to be (at least close to) the top steak place in town this one further suffers from it location and layout. Its a pure city lunch hang-out place and now not even with a high quality offering

Gaucho Broadgate is a very odd venue and hard to like! A glass and concrete “block”, where you decend into a bizarre sight of cow skin covered chairs-fine, suits a good steak house-but with dimmed lighting, candles on the tables and soft music! It was like a macho valentine venue! Really odd. Service was really poor. very attentive but only with the easy bits. I arrived early and sat waiting for my guest, who arrived and was left waiting upstairs, even though I was known to be waiting downstairs!...
