SquareMeal Review of
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.
