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.

This is definitely a place to go to close a business deal, once it was a place to take your date an enjoy a nice evening, not so much now as its full with families or businessmen at all times. That being said the food is delicious and plates are very well served, its expensive but it was worth it.... More

The best steaks, the best service, the best overall. Our taxi driver suggested this place, the other place we picked was closed, so we gave it a try. Wow, walking into the restaurant, I knew we were in for a treat. The place was packed, on a Wednesday!!! Full of laughter, families, parties, couples, everybody is here. We were seated... More

This place is a landmark in Monterrey, it's been there for quite a few years now and it only seems that it gets better. Everything is delicious here and it has great service.

Very good restaurant on Monterrey. Large portions of very good beef. Take a taxi if you do not know Monterrey. Ribeye is the best.

Good food, ask for the house salad. The dressing is tasty. Order also some empanadas. I recommend the ones with corn and cheese. If you're gonna celebrate something, book a table in advance or prepare yourself to wait hours.
