This is the classic Monterrey style steak house. Their cuts are very very good, but the way they char the meat and still leave that medium-rare center I just love it. Portions are very large so if ordering for a group make sure you ask the waiter about a recommendation on the portions, best way to order is to share... More

You can get a steak here as big as you ever wanted. And all of them are cooked to perfection! Great cuts of beef, all just amazingly great! They have a great selection of Tequila too. I recomment Carne y mas tequila amigos!

I have been in other "gaucho" in other cities... There is no one like the Monterrey one.. From the chef to how they prepare the salad... Every other gaucho place falls short... Really, try the salad... You'll miss it in the next time you other a salad somewhere else... (I do...)

There is a very huge restaurant, the food is extremely good, I recommend house's salad, and a meat they call costaleta, it's has a good taste and the desserts are spectacular, the banana cake is mmmmmm...... delicious.

I recently enjoyed a delicious late night business dinner at this beef-lover's paradise. The meat was cooked to perfection (as ordered) and the staff was friendly and efficient. One member of our party was a vegetarian and the staff helped make sure that he was well-fed as well.

I spent my parents anniversary dinner here and some other special occasions. Great meat cuts and extremely delicious italian food. You have to try the traditional Gaucho Salad, its a must.

The salad is probably the best suprise of Gaúcho!..... If you go there try it out. The arrachera for second will complete a meal that you can really enjoy...... As usual the Expresso (the only coffe that I know)

First, let me say the the restaurant was very busy on the night I was there. Second, let me say that restaurants should be manned to be busy [and this one appeared to be]. However, service was a bit slow for me - especially wine delivery. We had a shared salad to start - which was as good as my... More

Go there with knowing that you will not leave hungry. Most of the steaks have a "Medium" or "Full" order option. My girlfriend and I went there to eat somewhere we had not been previously and I ordered a "Full" sized steak that could have fed 3-4 people. The steak was very good, the service was excellent, and I will... More

We had to wait a bit for a table but we had no booking, make sure you have a reservation. The service was excellent and fast. The meat is just amazing. Try their house salad is beautiful. Their selection of wine is good but a bit expensive.
