SquareMeal Review of Gaucho City

From the awning over the stairs to the buttoned black leather within, Henry Ford’s favourite colour is much in evidence at this stygian steakhouse in the vault where the Bank of England once stored its bullion. It’s dark & it’s sexy, with shades of Addams-family gloom perked up by cowhide upholstery that adds a frivolous touch of yee-ha! to the show. But it’s beef, not leather, that makes Gaucho the capital’s favourite Argentinian since Evita: 400g spiral cuts of marinated rump, slow-grilled chateaubriand to share & entraña fina (succulent marbled skirt of beef) all make an impact. Spatchcocked chicken & black cod cater for less red-blooded appetites, & there are a few options for stray veggies. The ‘prodigious’ Argentinian wine list is a vinous education, with fine & rare bottles in abundance, plus masses of beef-friendly Malbec.

A beautiful steak with a sultry glass of wine is a little piece of heaven for us, making Gaucho a long-standing favourite restaurant. In the midst of year end processing at work, getting ready for Christmas at home and dealing with our two-year old having tonsilitis, I booked a last minute table at Gaucho City for a let's-chat-and-forget-about-the-world moment. With their traditionally tucked-away entrance and calming ambience, I truly felt miles away from the everyday hustle and bustle. The service was professional, friendly and assertive (just what you need for a quick lunch). The menu was deliciously tempting and we both settled on the ribeye with a complimentary glass of mulled wine (very festive). I can honestly say that the steak melted in my mouth (cooked medium rare) and, although brief, the whole experience has left another lasting impression on me.

Good, quite pricy, full of rather beefy guys, I enjoyed this place and would go again. You know what your going to get and as ever it did not disappoint.

As usual with Gaucho a fantastic steak with a beautiful looking restuarant and great service. The one gripe I had and this is being really pedantic was that the pasties for the starter was over cooked. Also it a real pain to find I asked 5 taxi drivers and none of them knew where the place was! But once there the place is great, would go ever night if I could.
