Gaucho Chancery Lane

Squaremeal Review of Gaucho Chancery Lane ?

Steak fans find themselves inexorably drawn to Gaucho, where perfectly prepared slabs of prime, pampas-fed Argentinian beef are the main attraction. Browse the different cuts before choosing your favourite, perhaps with a side of perfectly crisp chips & peppercorn sauce, washed down with a Malbec from the first-rate wine list. Elsewhere, the menu offers plenty of choice from zesty ceviche or shrimp causita starters, to empanadas, grilled pork matambre & dulce de leche tart. Though the food is rarely at fault, there have been grumbles about ‘tedious’ & ‘disappointing’ service, while high prices are a recurring gripe – even among the loyal following of Chancery Lane legal eagles. At least the striking black-&-white cowhide interior, with its dim lights, mirrors & sleek balcony bar provides a suitably sophisticated setting for some wallet-flexing.

Gaucho Chancery never fails to impress me. The service was excellent, with the manager personally welcoming guests as they arrived or if not then at their table. The waitress was very knowledgeable regarding the steaks and recommendations were given. The trio of medallions cooked rare was exceptional, so tasty and, together with the chips and savoy cabbage with lardons and cream, made for a wonderful lunch. Would highly recommend it.

Good service good food but the onward service and the last bit of experience was very bad. it was like a mini cab rank outside. Drivers standing outside the restaurant and asking passers by if a cab was needed. We did get a cab the driver said that the Restaurant have a contract with them and get a kick back from it. Driver could not speak proper English, didnt know where he was going very arrogant and rude over charged us to Victoria Station paid a £25 fare so overall the whole night was spoilt...

All the food on the menu here (not just the steak) is just great – can't fault it. The wine list is also fantastic. However, it's very expensive for what it is, and when I last visited (2 weeks ago) the service was unattentive and terminally slow. Perhaps, in this climate, they need to start being a little less complacent.

A buzzing atmosphere of people having good food, good wine and great conversations. A decor of black and white cow hide and low lighting. The service was excellent, our waitress could not have been more helpful. The food was wonderful. On a table of 7 we had a nice range of starters, myself with crab cakes which were delicious and perfectly cooked. The mango and onion salad that accompanied it was light and refreshing. My main course comprised of the most beautifully cooked steak I have ever eaten...
