This little place is excellent. We visited PM for one evening while staying at the Grand Mayan in which the food is very expensive. This place was very cheap and the food was amazing. Just bring bug repellent because the mosquitoes are terrible.

With a party of 9 vs 5 this time around we found service very slow. I understand the kitchen would be slower, but not the drinks... One of our fav's so we made a point to go here our first night, but would rate it middle of the pack as compared to the other local restuarants. Food was good, but... More

We ate here once for dinner on our trip to PM and were more than happy with what we ate and drank. The cocktails were good, as were the steaks and pastas. Reasonably priced restaurant.

I loved the food at this restaurant! Everything they prepare is delicious. We shared epanadas, pizza, and steak. Plus, they have a good selection of red wine. You won't be disappointed :-)

My husband ordered chicken and vegetables two nights and I had pizza. We loved it. Saturday night was a lot busier, and had a very long wait time.

Our first time eating at Los Gauchos, and we ordered a variety of Empanadas to share. Loved the fact that each was marked with a flag and it's kind, and although service was slow when we were there, it was still very good! Would definitely go ack!

Loved the food here. Best empanadas & arracharra steak. We tried the filet too, but thought the arracharra was the best, so flavorful & the chimichurri & pico were awesome. Pico was really spicy. Plenty of choices for the kids too, pizza & spaghetti were their favorites.

Great steaks, sandwiches, homemade pasta, and pizza! What else could you desire from an Argentinean restaurant!

We have eaten here before and loved it, so came back again this March to revisit and still love it. We have travelled in Mexico for years and never ate the steak, but, boy, has that changed!!! The method of cooking over the wood fire is great and the meat tender and juicy. Add the chimichurri sauce (now I am... More
