Been there couple years ago. Came over from London, the food was overpriced even for London standards. Steaks were poorly made. I asked for t-bone rare and got a steak that was half medium half well done. Service was mediocre. Slovak wine, although good it was pretty overpriced even considering a typical western restaurant adds 300% markup, this must have... More

I went with a friend and wanted a late night snack. He chose a rack of ribs and I ordered a steak salad. I could not believe the huge portion of ribs that arrived and also the quality of my beef. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience there and would highly recommend it.

If you are looking for a good steak house, I am sure this one would be a good option. Very tasty meat and grilled vegetable. I can only recommend.

We were part of group of couples and had book large table to enjoy awesome steaks. I must say our experience was quite disappointing. The best part were some of the appetizers we had however the steaks were midiocre at best. Definitely not worth the $ or should I write Euros.

Although there are a few people who have made negative statements about this restaurant they are totally wrong and actually I have noticed the same people with negative comments all over Tripadvisor. So point one, yes do not be surprised at the price Bratislava on the whole is an expensive place in comparison with other restaurants in the capital it... More

I love the argentinian restaurants but this si not the best I've tried.... The service si very slow and waiters not so polite. The meat is average, nothing more and prices not in line with Bratislava (I spent 60 euro). The remare better solutions in this town.

If you wanna eat a world delicious argentinian steak in Bratislava, do not hang around looking for long. El Gaucho is right into the upper corner of the central pedestrian old town square. Great steaks, good wines!

Truly recommend to visit this restaurant if you are in the mood for steak. I had a scrimp appetizer that was good, but the steak was excellent the right temperature and was delicious. The deco was a nice dark one and the restaurant is situated next to the wide pedestrian street leading up to the opera house.

We had lunch here with my husband few weeks ago. Service was excellent buy food was average. The interior is very dark, exterior is ordinary with just a few tables outside. Also, people smoked out there which is not that pleasant if you are a non smoker.
