SquareMeal Review of Gaucho Canary

"GOOD"

"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.

True to brand form, top-quality Argentinian steaks and cool cow-hide interiors are the name at this riverside outpost. A clubby vibe extends to the property’s private dining room, which seats 45 for smart dinners and does as many for standing canapé receptions. Location is a major USP: guests are walking distance from Canary Wharf central and the nearby Thames Clipper will zip them to the 02 in 15 minutes.

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 waterside location, where you can sit outside and enjoy the views and it is never too quiet. Brilliant place for a good steak and red wine or just a cocktail by the water.

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 say I have never had a steak with so much flavour before. It was It was coated with a mouth watering “Chimmichura” which had a fabulous, salty, slightly spicy taste. We had ordered sides, but we agreed the taste of the steak was so amazing these are so not necessary…a simple salad would be all you need to accompany it. As we had ordered champagne, the waitress made it her business to ask if we celebrating, which in turn led to a “Happy Birthday” plate being served at the end of our meal, containing the most amazing coffee tart, ice cream & candle. What a great touch! By the time we left the whole restaurant & bar was buzzing. There was even cocktail lessons going on at the other end of the bar. The whole feel of the place was delightful, and as we left & the sun was setting over the Thames, a huge liner was making it's way past. We will definately be returning & would recommend this place to anybody with a love for steak.
