Quality food, great service and an experience to remember. If you are in Vietnam and have had a stomach full of Vietnamese food and are looking for some Western food, El Gaucho is the place to go. Fresh meat, well cooked and great wine collection. They also pour a shot of flavored vodka for you on the house. Do try... More

For Vietnam it is very pricy, almost as expensive as in Switzerland. But to make it quick: Meat 8.5/10 Sidedishes 10/10 The meat at Rollis Switzerland is still the best on the planet. I had the USDA Prime at El Gaucho. The big bonus is, that in the end there was somekind of free for all vodka shots. Not just... More

Tried El Gaucho, must say the premise at Hai Ba Trung is a very nice Restaurant. The Steak Tenderloin was one of the best i have tasted in recent Years. The Argentina wine recommended by the Patron was excellent and accomplished the beef Dish very well. It's side dishes are very good with exception of the Mash Potatoes which was... More

Strolling down Saigon and having had enough Vietnamese food I bumped into El Gaucho. Lived many years in Latin America so a good steak is always welcomed. The ambience is excellent, nice busy wooden long bar, fast bartenders that do understand English, mixed crowd of business visitors and classy locals. Well presented kitchen, with a vast variety on offer in... More

Yes! great steak, Yes! expensive and Yes! good wine lists. What can I say...For me, I ordered a 350gm New York striploin because I love fat along with meat, very flavorful, medium rare (should be more rare, is closed to medium when reached our table), blue cheese sauce and asparagus as side (sadly local asparagus were used) . Seasoning wise,... More

I think these guys have the best steak in Saigon. However, you pay for it. It is not cheap. The ones at 3G are a close second, and they may win out overall as they are less expensive. Still, I love El Gaucho and their new space by the Park Hyatt is beautiful. We will definitely be back! I have... More

Wonderful service, unique menu and even though pricy, it was a good and fun experience. They are a few doors down on the right side of the street that borders the right side of the Hotel Continental. Really interesting menu. We arrived around 7 PM and were one of the first there. When we left a few hours later the... More

We accidentally stumbled upon this restaurant and all i can say is thank god! My mouth waters when I think about their empanadas, absolutely delicious, my steak was cooked to perfection as was my daughters meal. I have to whole heartily disagree with the previous review on the service, we had no reservation and arrived to a full restaurant but... More
