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.

About Gaucho Chancery Lane

Set amongst walls of cowhide, spectacular light fixtures, sleek, modern furniture, you will find Chancery Lane’s Gaucho. The restaurant is superbly located at the intersection of the city and the bustling, glitzy West End. Make your way to Chancery Lane to have brunch, lunch, or dinner in this fine establishment with authentic Argentinian food to satisfy all your steak cravings.

The atmosphere is moody and intimate, but still quite spacious. The overall impression is striking as you walk in, and marvel at how the light, from the beautiful arched windows, catches on the chandelier inside the dim interior. The restaurant is

Upstairs there is an elegant mezzanine dining gallery and cocktail bar, which can be exclusively hired for events to seat 60 and standing for 60 in the bar area. There is also a funky cowhide enrobed spiral staircase leading between the two floors. The ground floor has a remarkable, well-curated wine display featuring stellar vintages and Argentinian vineyards. There is a private dining room available to comfortably accommodate 18 seated guests, for hosting meetings or formal business dinners, impress and treat your guests to the finest.

The restaurant is an excellent choice for hosting a weekend drinks do for friends or for intimate dates, business lunches, and receptions at the bar. Indulge yourself with a choice of prime Argentinian cuts and wines from brunch through to dinner; no one says you can’t have steak for breakfast. For bigger affairs, try out the sharing menu for an abundant selection of Gaucho’s signature dishes to share with the whole table, the perfect cure for indecision. The feast includes the likes of smoky beef carpaccio cured in juniper and winter truffle glazed burrata for starters. A meaty spread of fine cuts may feature slow grilled spiral cut ribeye, lean cuadril rump, and chorizo sirloin with crackling.

I have been to Gaucho many times and I always have a great meal. The steak quality is incomparable, with a comfortable atmosphere and prompt and friendly service. The only thing I would say is stick to steak. The non steak items are ok, but the steak is the star of the show. If you want some great quality meat, treated with care and cooked really well, then Gaucho is the place for you.

Fantastic steak!

There are many great steak restaurants in London, but the steaks in Gaucho are special. Great quality meat where you can actually taste that the cow had a happy life. It is a bit pricey, but you pay for good quality. Delicious sides and even their simple burgers are tastily impressive. The atmosphere is masculine and modern with quick and efficient service. A perfect place for a romantic date or a meal out with your mates.

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.

Onward service from the Restaurant

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 for the last experience. We are never going back if we ever did we will never use a mini cab again from the restaurant.

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 in my life. I went for a 200g medium fillet, I could cut through it like butter and I only needed to chew it about three times before I needed to swallow. I am already looking to rebook in January for a birthday celebration.
