Gaucho Tower Bridge

Squaremeal Review of Gaucho Tower Bridge ?

Gaucho by name, but not by nature – this super-suave, ‘über-masculine’ riverside steakhouse is more gloss than grasslands. The odd patch of brushed cowhide is one hat-tip to the cowboys from which the restaurant takes its name; the rest is a vision of black, glittering chandeliers and leather. This eponymous chain peddles ‘the finest Argentinian steaks’, with a healthy range of cuts from more traditional rib-eyes and fillets to less-common cuadril (tail of rump) and lomo (tenderloin). The Gaucho sampler is always popular with steak fans, who have described it as a ‘must-do experience’ – although ‘largely forgettable’ sides get the thumbs-down. To counter meat fatigue, starters tend to be light and refreshing: ceviche of scallops with mango and yellow pepper, say. As expected, the bullish wine list is an impressive collection of Argentina’s finest reds.

Lovely Gaucho

by   bronze reviewer (7)

Dec 2015

This is my favourite branch of Gaucho. Not only is the view perfect but for the Christmas period the atmosphere was perfect for a late lunch. We were served right away no waiting around and our waitress was very attentive but not in your face. An excellent meal with everything being cooked to perfection. I enjoyed the variety that Gaucho have for their bread selection. Its changed some what since I last visited but it was still very nice. Cant wait to go back again for another meal :-)

Not only did the tubes go on strike but so did Gaucho, We had the private room booked for 16 at 18.30. We were still waiting for starters at 19.30 and our mains did not arrive till 20.30!. The Maitre'd could not give us a reason other than “I have no idea what happened” and apologise that we had been forgotten. One of our team left at 20.30 and did not even get to eat the mains. Our hostess as was constantly topping our glasses up with the ‘not on the cheap side’ wine either hoping we would get quite...

1st time of eating at this restaurant and the experience was most enjoyable. Staff friendly and attentive, food cooked to perfection, surroundings spacious and relaxing, an all round pleasing end to the day after visiting The Shard.

Decorated like a goth's wet dream. This is uber masculine design. Consisting entirely of blacks, mirrors and the odd flashes of cow, the room disorientates at first, black doors open onto black rooms through black walls, until you manage to pick out the shades. The crowd in the place is similarly male, a slightly confused couple sat next to us slotted uneasily next to large groups of braying men, flushed of face with bonhomie, wine, good steak and self importance. Deals weren't being done, but like...

We have been to this Gaucho, Tower Bridge 4 times now, including yesterday evening and it's become a firm favorite for us. On two ocassions we have taken friends who enjoyed it as much as we did. The service is the best I have come across in the UK, from the minute you arrive to the minute you leave. The staff are friendly and helpful and the ambience in the restaurant is fabulous, not stuffy and really comfortable, and the decor is great!. The food, although pricey is worth every penny; from the...

It's a lively restaurant and that's great if that's what you want. Bad points: Very dark, having come in from a lovely sunny evening it took a while to adjust to the darkness. Small bar area, no wonder they wanted us to go directly to our table. Service was fantastic, though sometimes a little too over enthusiastic, my other half threatened to chop the next hand off that tried to pour more wine out for us as one of the waiters tried to do it for the 3rd time in the space of 10 minutes… Starters were...

For any true Steak and/or wine lover there can be no Restaurant that I feel keeps such high quality every time I visit. Up until 2002 my quest was to find a steak in England that was as good as one can buy abroad, however nothing quite made the grade. I try and go to Gaucho at least once every month, either Tower Bridge or at the O2 Arena as they are the most local. Canary Wharf Gaucho tend to be a little snobby and when I show up in a sweat shirt and not a suit they put me in a corner and are surprised...

    London Unattached - London Restaurants, London Lifestyle, London Events :: Gaucho Tower Bridge - Steak and Wine with a View

    Famous for beef and wine, Argentina is the eighth largest country in the World. There’s a certain romance and passion about this place, home to Evita, the Tango and the Gaucho, cowboys of the South American Pampas. The eponymous restaurant group has, for many years now, served some of the best steak in London and UK. It pre-dates Hawksmoor, Goodmans and others and has always focused on Argentinian beef. Hard to believe that it was founded in 1976. I was first treated to a steak at Gaucho in Piccadilly when I was still at school. Descending into, what seemed at the time, a very adult and glamorous nightclub,...
