I am a regular visitor of this restaurant and a native of Cologne. If you want to eat steaks, then El Gaucho is your place in Cologne. No other steak house is better in Cologne. Just take into account, that this restaurant is not suitable for large groups (6+). Otherwise everything is recommendable.

Great taste and prepare. Good point and roasted potato with soar cream. Not cheap but good value for the money considering the type of food.

I had the fillet medium rare, and my travelling companion had the fillet well done and we both had the best steak experience ever, my fillet was enormous and cooked to perfection, I recommend anybody taking a stay in Cologne to seek out this restaurant and take a steak experience.

I have been there before I like their food, but this time was aweful! We had reservation for 21:00 got our table 20 min. later after waiting outside in the cold weather. Then we didn't get our food before 23:20. The service was incredible bad or not present. They kept lying to us that the food was 10-15 min. away.... More

We visited 2 night running an June last year. I have just booked for 2 more evenings in May this year. These guys just get it right! I never review anything usually. However, i have seen some negative comments and needed to state my/our companies opinion.

Steaks were great. Salad was good. Bread was stale. Cob corn was ok. Service was slow, waiters spent most of the time ignoring the guests and drinking wine. Took forever to get attention and service and
