We ordered steaks and they were delicious. The exact cooking point. They were served within reasonable time and... read more

We ordered steaks and they were delicious. The exact cooking point. They were served within reasonable time and everything was just fine. We'll come back for parrillada.

First visit in a long time and was a truly nice surprise. Beautiful and simple decor, piano music, good service and great food, all combined to create a memorable evening. Both choices of main courses were excellent and the presentation was very good. What a liked the most was that the waitress and the rest of the personnel were respectful... More

I expected a better steak from this restaurant . It tasted as if the grill has been started with kerosene , and that was transferred to the steak. The service was good . Ambiance acceptable for a business meeting.

Steak was OK. The menu offers a decent selection. The provoleta was runny but tasty. Chimichurri was pretty authentic as was the red sauce. Nice selection of Argentine wines. Service was disappointing. There were 2 servers but their attention was mostly taken up by two large groups. Servers were nice and knowledgeable but just very busy.

This restaurant serves the best parrillada in Puerto Rico, with all the cuts of meat associated with a traditional parrillada. The facility was recently completely renovated and is VERY nice now compared to what it was years ago (which was OK but very tired). The waiters are very friendly and the service is good.

The restaurant look nice and we were seated on the spot. The waitress was nice and the beverages came soon with the wine.... More

All the Locals know about this place but worth the trip is you are visiting. Skip Outback and go straight to GAUCHO. Can get a little noisy at times when the place is crowded with lots of families BUT worth the visit.

We were promptly seated....by the kitchen door. Every time the door opened the loud noise was so distracting. A guest at our table actually jumped from fright as it sounded like a gunshot. I tried the meat that came on the appetizer plate, from the taste I opted for the chicken. The sangria was excellent. The very best thing to... More
