The food was very good! Even the location is very good. Unfortunately our waiter was more concerned about her friends outside the restaurant than serving our table. However, I would go there again. The reason is simple, quality steaks!

My friends and I went there on my stag night, it was our starting point. We all ordered the same...Entrecote steaks, for which this restaurant is famous. It was tasting great, exactly as expected. We were sitting outside, where the service was a bit slower, but it didn´t bother us at all. I highly recommend this place.

Menu is varied although El Gaucho is mostly known for their meat. One of their signature dishes is their butter fried foie gras on toast that is absolutely fantastic. If you like fried foie gras this is must. Also they have a good selection of wines and a staff that knows what they are talking about.

went there with my friend who recommended the place for its food, but warned me the service will be dreadful. and it was exactly this: the food - we ordered 2 salads (salmon and pink grapefruit, and mozarrella and chicken one), and we waited 25 mins for it. Firstly, the waiters and the whole team were not really bothered about... More

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
