Very classic Gaucho Restaurant! Traditional in Monterrey, more than 45 years!

Amazing salad, huge portions on everything! Try the Ladrillo and cabrerìa. Everything is very good. Very Familiar atmosphere, no reservations. Almost always full. Great service with waiters with more than 20 yrs working there. Share always!

You may have to order half of an order because the cuts are really big , Also ask for the Argentinian salad that comes with a lot of avocado and cheese

Big steaks to share and great salad with a lot of avocado. Meat empanadas are really good. The place is very clean, service is great. Seating is spacious. Share your dish with two or three, very big and pretty expensive.

One of the pioneer argentinian restaurants in Monterrey. My first visit to El Gaucho was in 1970 and my last was in Feb 2015. They keep high quality steaks and empanadas and service is excellent and friendly. Reservations...A Must!!!!

Excellent steaks and couldn't hardly believe the size of them. Service was excellent as well. Seems to be a very popular place and is well deserving of the excellent rating.

It offers a large variety of steaks, and it has good cuts! I would definitely recommend to share because it is a lot of food!! this way it doesn't feel expensive.... if you eat a plate by yourself it would be a lot of money.

Nice meat. I went there twice and booth times the restaurant was full what slow the service but the combination of price quality compensates.

Very nice ambiance, great food and the greatest steak I have had in a restaurant. There we were offered a Cabernet-Avignon - Merlot from lower California that was worth every penny

If you share is not so expensive. My suggestion is a Churrasco for 2 and a house salad... instead of 2 main dishes
