About Gaucho Broadgate

Gaucho Broadgate is ideally situated just a stone’s throw from Liverpool street station, at the intersection of the financial district and trendy east London. To properly relax after a long day at work, do head to the glass bar and heated terrace, or unwind out the exclusive courtyard, for drinks with a view of the pretty city lights.

The venue might look like a tiny glass cube, but head down into the depths of Gaucho & you’ll find yourself in a sexy, sultry, underground grotto reminiscent of a 70s’ nightclub, with a slightly pokey, glass-walled cigar terrace for recalcitrant puffers. For some Argentinan food with a side of ringside action, head downstairs for a theatre-style experience, as the aroma of sizzling, caramelising meats floats off the grill and into your plate.

Rich, tasty empanadas or delicate ceviche of lemon sole set the scene for the main event – pampas-reared, properly aged Argentinian beef. Staff bring out the raw cuts on a board to explain the differences in taste & texture – don’t miss the spiral churrasco cuts marinated in garlic, parsley & olive oil.

For pud, a scoop of dulce de leche ice cream hits the spot. Gaucho has its own vineyard in Mendoza, and its  Argentinian wine list continues to receive plaudits; expect top-drawer Malbecs & Bonardas, plus Cabernets for the less adventurous.

There are several menus to choose from, depending on your mood and occasion, with set lunches and dinners to signatures and sharing platters, sumptuous cuts of meat await. The feast menu is the most luxurious option for impressive affairs, featuring starters of seared diver scallops and slow-grilled ribeye, to be rounded off with an assortment of with a selection of cheese and apple cider chutney.

For private events, there is the option to book the Whisky or Wine rooms, the upstairs bar, or summer terrace.

Hidden Gem
10 December 2019   - Verified Diner

Hidden beneath the plaza of Broadgate Circle, the only visible part of it is a glass enclosed bar and waiting area. From the moment you step through the door to when you leave the friendly staff take control and make you feel extra special. The steaks were excellent and I will degfinitely go back soon

Great Lunch spot but Room for Improvement

I have to agree with the other reviews on this site - Gaucho Broadgate has gotten itself a reputation for being a "posh City lunch" location and has lost it's high quality dining status for serving some of the best steak in London. However, the service whenever I have gone has always been to high standards and consistent, I have planned a few friends birthday's here and always pre ordered a bottle of bubbles to surprise my friend, which has always been organised well and has been discreetly sorted by the staff. Gaucho broadgate remains a popular place to go for business lunches, and I've found the atmousphere is still as good as it's always been, however I think they've lost the appetite to obtain customers looking to dine with partners or friends in the evenings.

Wow I love Gaucho Broadgate. You enter at the stunning glass bar upstairs and then make your way downstairs to the restaurant. What a spectacular restaurant! You can view the chefs cooking and the interior is perfect for a steak restaurant. The food is delicious and the atmosphere buzzing. I love it!

Noisy but Nice...

I have happily dined at Gaucho many a time and this time again I was not disappointed. We opted for a late (2:30pm) lunch (to avoid having to return to work!), and we were surprised at how busy the place was - and how loud! - but I guess it is nearly Christmas. We didn't leave until after 6pm so we watched the bodies and the noise level reduced over time. I was happy but surprised to see that they have introduced a set lunch menu, with plenty of variety and so we all ordered from that. The parsnip soup was delicious, the salmon rilletts also looked lovely and a clean plate was left behind. On to the mains and we all opted for steak (what else could you choose at Gaucho?!), cooked perfectly and a smaller than normal menu portion so perfect as part of a 3 course meal, the chips however were enormous with only 1.5 portions being consumed between us we reluctantly had to admit defeat. We also ordered salads on the side, the greens were greens but the heirloom tomato salad as everytime was YUMMY! Desserts were ok, perfectly fine for a lunch menu but nothing to particularly write home about. All in all another successful dining experience at (in my humble opinion) one of the best places to get good steak in the City.

While the gaucho chain as a whole have lost their once claim to be (at least close to) the top steak place in town this one further suffers from it location and layout. Its a pure city lunch hang-out place and now not even with a high quality offering

Gaucho Broadgate is a very odd venue and hard to like! A glass and concrete “block”, where you decend into a bizarre sight of cow skin covered chairs-fine, suits a good steak house-but with dimmed lighting, candles on the tables and soft music! It was like a macho valentine venue! Really odd. Service was really poor. very attentive but only with the easy bits. I arrived early and sat waiting for my guest, who arrived and was left waiting upstairs, even though I was known to be waiting downstairs! This went on for 15 mins. Not good enough. After being shown the steaks on offer by someone who clearly had no real idea, we decided toask to share a sirloin, rib eye and fillet. They arrived on individual plates as the concept of “sharing” had been lost between giving our order and haveing it served. Basic, dumb error The steaks looked fine but were very average. The sirolin was tough, the fillet tasteless and the rib-eye average. Poor. The cost simply did not justify the venue, food or service, I will never go again.
