My wife and I wanted some beef after having several dinners of great Vietnamese food. We were told to try El Gaucho. The steak was cooked perfect as were our vegetables.

Expensive but good. Enjoyed a very good steak here. Cooked exactly how I wanted it. The owner was friendly and gave us free shots after the food. Cozy, great service, and even better food - a nearly perfect steakhouse in Saigon.

The steaks were excellent, exactly what you dream off. However you need to budget up to US 100 per person if you take a bottle of wine and go for the premium quality

From start (Chorizo) to finish (Caramel Vodka Shot) and everything in between (Prime New York Strip Steak) this meal was fabulous. It's no coincidence that two of their restaurants in HCMC are right around the corner from each other and full. Exceptional food and service, these folks now how to make it an experience to remember.

What a superb place - great ambience, attentive staff all marshalled by Patrick, the Manager. My only fault was the chips (fries) - no good. The steaks, the wines,the amazing caramel vodka shots are all exceptional - make sure you go !!!!!!!

Had a family dinner and enjoyed plenty of great beef. Really great. It was value for money. We will go back when ever we feel like eating great meat.

El Gaucho offers very good steak in a lively atmosphere with Latino music . Their free bread and sauce before the meal are delicious too. You should choose Phu My Hung branch for better view
