Lovely lunch

We spotted the lunch menu on the board outside- great choice and great price. Their lunch runs until 5pm so after a whip around the sites in town we headed back for a taste. We were surprised to be the only customers. The atmosphere is great, it's is non-smoking and the choice in food and wine is... read more

Best Steaks from Chef called Martin. Very good service and nice place to sit outside and enjoy the old town atmosphere.

We had an excellent meal here and our waiter ROMAN was superb. No complaints. It is a little pricey but what do you expect when going out for a steak?

This argentine restaurant is located in the heart of Bratislava behind the Hans Christian Andersen statue. It has a great menu with fantastic meat and salads. Service was very friendly and attentive. A large wine cellar on the lower floor.

Group of 10 business colleagues had an excellent dinner here in what must have been the old wine celler section underneath ground floor level. Excellent food and service if a bit pricey.

First time at El Gaucho and for special occasion (bf's bday). First of all - atmosphere and interior were nice, since it was Sunday afternoon we were happy that all the children were at the other part of the restaurant. A little bit cold since we were sitting near the door and people kept coming in and going out...but when... More

I decided to give a try to this restaurant after I've read many positive reviews but I was extremely disappointed. The food was average, for this prices and bill over 200€ I expected much more. Service was TERRIBLE! The waitress was one big disaster. Blonde, czech girl that couldn't reccomend anything, was lazy to even clean our dirty table.

I can't comment about the food as we didn't eat here. Unfriendly staff showed us to a table and provided menus. We queried the price of the house wine at 40euros. This query was treated with derision - we left.

I work in the US and this was certainly a great American steak. Good service and fantastic food. We had the U.S. fillet and the aged entrecôte and both cooked rear were great.

The restaurant just behind the hotel we stay. Great steaks offer here we try varieties of them , all of them very nice, but the price a little expensive. I love their white bread and wine.
