Great food, great service

Very good service, good food, prepared very well. My husband and I enjoyed very much. We were looking for steaks prepared in a more "typical" Mexican style and felt like we found it here. Very, good.

I have been eating here regularly for 5 years - since I started travelling to Veracruz. The empanadas are the best in town - I fell in love with empanadas in Buenos Aires and I have tried them at every restaurant in Veracruz I have viisted that has them on the menu and El Gaucho is at the top.

One is got to wait for a table, but boy! is it worth the wait. Food, drinks and service are primo for a reasonable price. It's a locals' place. Their menu varies from Argentina style steaks to "Gorditas y Picadas de Veracruz. You must try this place

This is one of the best restaurants in Veracruz. An older establishment, but they know how to greet, serve and cater to their guests. Definitely the place to frequent for breakfast, lunch AND dinner.

Great food from a wide selection of seafood and beef (Argentinian.) Family friendly but not formica and plastic at all. a bit too noisy and bright for a romantic couples date night for my tastes, but the food makes up for it.

I have been returning to this restaurant on my visits to Veracruz for over 15 years. I love the table top hibachi grill that you can cook and keep food warm, I especially like the steak, pork and shrimp combo. The salads are fresh and crisp and the assorted breads are great. The queso flamado with Chorizo and hand made... More
