Gaucho Canary 1

Squaremeal Review of Gaucho Canary ?

"Summertime fun" is guaranteed at this branch of the Gaucho chain, especially when its alfresco waterfront space is rocking. In the less clement seasons, step inside, sit back in a cowhide chair and peruse the South American wine list with its multitude of hearty Malbecs and subtler Torrontes whites (many offered by the carafe). As for the food, "an Argentinian restaurant that can't do good steak is like the Shard's window cleaners not liking heights", so allow the well-informed waiters to explain the various cuts available. Lomo (fillet) and ancho (rib-eye) are popular, although we like the added flavour of spiral-cut churrasco, marinated in garlic, parsley and olive oil. Portions are ginormous, so don't overdo the starters, however tempting the tuna ceviche or tostadas might be. Some diners get as far as the dulce de leche cheesecake before admitting defeat – don't say we didn't warn you.

Yum Yum Cows Bum

An Argentinian restaurant that can't do a good steak is like The Shard's window cleaners not liking heights. At the Gaucho Grill the steaks come in a handful of cuts and they really do use the best Argentinian beef Gaucho's never disappoints. My piece of grilled cow bum was as always, beautiful. The chips were also fabulous, as was the chimichurri. The wine list was great, good Argentinian wines; many of which can be bought in half bottle carafes. I will go again.

Who doenst love Gaucho?? Always an experience, even if you have been there a hundred times, you always want to see the meat board with all the different cuts of beef! Everything is always so delicious and I have to say that once I actually even managed to have a 3-course meal there (what a pig!) Food is delicious, (especially the cheesy bread – always ask for more!) service is impeccable and the venue has a trendy, moody dark vibe that I love! Gaucho Canary over and above the others has a fantastic...

We arrived very early for our table but was made to feel this was no problem at all & were seated at a great table. The interior is great, very black, lit by chandeliers..with plenty of cowhide coverings, it just looks like a great place to want to eat. I can't praise our waitress enough, she was superb. She bought to our table a large board with all the cuts of the beef on & explained how each was served & made it feel personal to your liking of steak. We decided on a cut to share & I can honestly...

Previous reviews a bit harsh… Mind you they are old ones…perhaps they have new chefs now !…Gauchos…it;s a chain ..We ALL know about them …so when I read a complaints re the prices…?? One knows what one is going to Gaucho's for and the price..?…So why the shock ?…,,,,A steak is going to be £20 minimum …No..it's not Goodmans or The Palm …but you go there knowing what you are going to get ?… This one is local to me… Bar area is ok… ( better in summer when you can sit outside)…Service is always ok…and...

Absolute rip off! We had lunch there yesterday in a party of 8, were forced to choose a set menu at £55 per head, without drinks. The starter was bland, cold rubbish and the steak was mediocre at best. All Bar One would have been better! This is a chain restaurant trying to be a fine dinning establishment. Avoid at all cost! The bill came to over £800 for an hour and half of rubbish! You have Royal China, Roka, Plateau, Four Seasons all on the door step, this place is simply living off the name and...

Apologies I mistakenly posted this for their City location I can not warn people strongly enough to avoid this awful rip off place! I'm sure the Saturday evening (10/07/2010) I went they did not have a chef the open kitchen looked chaotic and grubby I had the Pan fried squid as a starter it resembled a very small packet of hula hoops with a disgusting industrial tomato sauce on top the only culinary contribution to this dish was some freshly chopped herb put on top I’m sure this was some sort...

Gaucho Grill – a steak restaurant that doesn't know how to cook steak. Waited a long time to be served a piece of meat on a plate with nothing else…! I would have rather eaten the raw offerings from the presentation board upon arrival – infact, my ‘medium well’ steak was not far off (and that was their second attempt at cooking my order)! Although fabulous wines and interesting cocktails, a very disappointing evening, expect to pay at least £50 a head for not very much.
