This is a well-known restaurant in Monterrey. Famous for its argentinian style prime cuts. They are generously served and grilled to the taste. If you like salads, Gaucho salad is a must. Desserts are delicious and great to share. You can't go wrong on this one!

This place has a little bit of everything. The steaks here are great. When it gets real busy sometimes they under cook the meat. Understandable as how can you cook 100 steaks on a couple of grills.

Later visits I drove,... More

El gaucho is maybe one of the finest restaurants in the south part of the city, it is usually crowded and the last time they told us that they don't get reservations anymore. Quality and price goes up hand in hand. You should take notice that when crowded, they tend to under cook the meat term you requested, so be... More

Very traditional restaurant in Monterrey, Beef cuts specialities, good entries and wide wine variety. Highly recommended to visit with friends and family, a bit costly but it worth.

I go there with my family at least once year cause It's my dad's favourite restaurant. I wouldn't know if the food served is part of the real Argentinian cuisine, but great food nonetheless!
