Excellent steak restaurant

We were recommended to go here, and found it to be a great steak restaurant. The service and menu choices were outstanding. You'll pay much higher prices here than other restaurants in Ho Chi Minh, but it's worth it considering the types of steaks you can get. We were there when the entire... read more

excellent choice for meat eaters. The food is generally always good standard and very tasty. I have eaten there a few times and most of all the food is consistent. I would recommend it.

We had been walking around ho chi minh city all afternoon and stumbled in here in search of a hearty meal. We realised quickly that this establishment was fine dining which we were very much not dressed for. However, the staff couldn't have been more attentive and the steak was out of this world. You must must must go :-D

BAM! This is a steakhouse! Noisy, masculine and focused on serving a great steak. I have had better at Bern's or Gene and Georgetti's, the Chop House, etc. but those are great steak houses in places that have many many good steakhouses. Ho Chi Minh City is not your typical steakhouse town and therefore, El Gaucho rises to the level... More

A mediocre steak at a very hight inflated price. Everything is Ala Carte and I mean everything. US$50 for a US$15 dollar steak is over inflated and price fir the hype. Reasonable ambiance but I eat at a restaurant for the food as I don't dine on the furniture. When management does not know the difference between rare and medium... More

Have been coming here since day 1. Still a great steak as big or small as you want. Wine list is always a challenge, as so many good wines. Service is always very good, as to those people who say its to fast, ask them to slow down. Never had a problem with them doing that. Long may they continue.

A good steakhouse, value for money. The only thing is that it comes very quickly after each other. You order starter, finish it, main dish comes. So within the hour you are more or less outside. Food is excellent. Note you cannot pay in US dollars.

El Gaucho is an expensive place to eat. However, the food is certainly of the quality and standard that one would expect at this kind of price range. Value for money - Yes. Unfortunately the service is not up to any international standard and especially not when it comes to this kind of price range. Value for money - absolutely... More
