Happy, gentle and attentive staff, beautiful and relaxed atmosphere. And the food! So, so good. Don't miss the provoleta or passion fruit caipiroshka! Just a tip if you book a table through hotel, online or phone - there are two El Gauchos close to each other! So be sure to ask which one you just booked a table at.

I have raved about El Gaucho in Bangkok & happened to be in HCMC with friends from Australia, so we had to give them the El Gaucho experience. The wine list is not as comprehensive as in Bangkok is to my tastes, but the food is certainly as good. Living in Singapore where you need a small mortgage for a... More

The menue is well balanced and provides plenty of choices for everyone. The beef was tender and very flavorful. The wine list is extensive with a good selection of old world and new world wines. I sat at the bar and found the staff very helpful and friendly. A great destination for large groups or for a couple to enjoy... More

If you want to eat some excellent meat you must go over there. We had two beef ribs I haven't go the words to describe how nice it's was. Just go :)

I rarely eat steak, and these days if I do, I only eat grass-fed steak. One of my friends has similar tastes and we decided to try Gaucho after being told it was an experience not to be missed. We arrived (like pretty much everyone else, it seems) on a Friday evening without reservations and the new place on Hai... More

Let's make no mistake. El Gaucho DOES deserve to be in the top ten. The service is impeccable. The food is consistently fantastic and it's very hard to find fault with their execution. The restaurant/s are classy and sophisticated. They spent a little too much on the renovation of the second Saigon location (IMHO), but kudos to them for making... More

I was expecting traditional Argentinian food and meat. I'm Argentinian and this place is not even close to similar to an Argentinian SteakHouse. The empanadas are not very good and the price for each is $7. The food was Ok but expensive for what you get. Honestly I would not recommend it, definitely I will not come back.

After too many bowls of pho bo, we decided to go to the El Gaucho on Dong Khoi street, just opposite Park Hyatt - very conveniently located if you're staying in that area. We went in around 7:30pm on a Friday evening and as we did not have any reservations were only given seats by the bar - which I'm... More
