Great Steak Great Wine.

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.

Best steak in Ho Chi Minh!!!!! All warm salads are awesome as well, chicken liver, goat cheese warm salad, etc. Good beef, good wine, good pinacolada, even drinks without alcohol taste good!

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

We had had a pretty intense spell of Asian dining, it was a welcome change to have this great food; my husband had just the steak he wanted, I had a great burger. The service was efficient and friendly, the place was buzzing with really cool long tables with diners on barstools. Aircon excellent.

Best steak in town. Ribeye was cooked perfectly and no frills on the steak (ie no sides, to be ordered separately. Very generous with the free house-pour vodka. Definitely a must try and I will be back!!

2 of us went for dinner, we got a burger each that came with salad and fries which was one of the cheapest meals on the menu at 17 euro each (not including vat or the service charge). The food and setting were very nice, as were the staff. *the address listed on TripAdvisor is no longer the address of... More

My wife and I ate here and, since we don't eat beef, had the pork ribs (very large portion) and lamb chops (portion just right) with starters/fries/salad - all very tasty! It's not the cheapest in HCMC by far but we knew that before we went, the quality was good and atmosphere reasonable with attentive staff. Overall - worth 5... More

Truly good meat, nice staff, good location, and quite good aircon. All of this make dining at El Gaucho a very good experience, although a bit pricey.
