SquareMeal Review of Gaucho Richmond

22

"VERY GOOD"

Swaggering and staggering distance from central Richmond, this branch of the Argentinian grill chain proves popular with the area’s macho men and their glamorous WAGs. Keep to the light, zingy fish ceviches and tiraditos for starters, to leave space for the main attraction. The steaks are beautifully cooked, with minimal fuss. Frankly, ordering anything else (sea bream with serrano ham, prawn risotto) is to miss the point. Puds are substantial, very sweet and largely unnecessary. The drinks list is full of punchy Argentinian wines and much-admired cocktails, so it’s a shame this beautifully sited venue on the Thames towpath no longer serves drinks to non-diners.

This popular spot on the banks of the Thames has no private room but can accommodate a big group (up to 45) in a dedicated space at the back of the restaurant. Smaller groups can have a table in the restaurant or less formally on the glorious summer terrace.

3/4 empty but service slow but very warm and polite. Food came out wrong, then came out cold. To finish off the Experian enstake was rare to raw rather than medium rare. staff happy to sort but at some point you just give up. Interesting I did a review on TripAdviser and saw my review in 2012 which was also bad. On e the upside the place is consistent... Interesting that this branch of Gaucho's was 3/4's empty whilst the London branch was fully booked, I see why now...

We were given a wonderful window table promptly. The restaurant was busy, the service was charming, the food was delicious (we had marinated steak with sweet potato chips) , beautiful setting, nice decor, good drinks at the bar served by friendly barmen.

My wife and I left Wimbledon after a day “on” Court 1 in the early evening balmy sunshine. The Gaucho's setting by the River is perfect and this should be a “killer” proposition. But it isn't. We sat outside and with one notable exception in a Peruvian waiter, “enjoyed” fairly awful, hit and miss service. The senior staff in particular seemed not to treat the customers as people at all – avoided eye contact and smiling. Ah well, the food though expensive should have made up for it but the starters were meaner than usual. The 300gm rump steak was up to standard, but the sides were not hot enough. Luckily, the riverside setting is just gorgeous and the other people eating seemed out to enjoy themselves in a laid back sort of way, so the general shortcomings seemed to be mainly forgiven. Not sure we'll be back sadly.
