Perfect job !

Fits perfectly the bill. You get an excellent steak, well prepared, tasty side dishes, proper wine selection, good service. Of course that does not come cheap, but definitely worth it.

I havent given an excellent since arriving in Vietnam but OMG it was fantastic as far as the staff and the service was concerned. From the moment that we arrived even without a reservation we felt special. The staff were attentative without being overbearing which seems the norm. The only downside was the steak my husband ordered med-rare, was still... More

Warmth, friendliness, convivial atmosphere, in this narrow but tall steakhouse. Seeming a favorite of Vietnam's expatriate crowd and curious local people sampling Western meat cuisine. I had excellent ribeye, a fresh and tasty Caesar salad and vegetable and mashed potato sides along with the inevitable Tsingtao and Tiger beers. Enjoyable evening.

Food is good. Good meat, well prepared. I live in Shanghai so I'm used to pay expensive for western dishes and especially for a good steak. Well HCMC apparently became more expensive than Shanghai. 2 cokes, 2 rib eye, 2 mashed potatoes 135 USD/120 Euro.They let me pay 70.000 VND (3 US Dollar) for the Pepper Sauce that they proposed...

I have been to El Gaucho a few times when visiting HCM and it has never failed. Fantastic steaks and good wine list. Good lively ambience. Like the new venue as well as they recently moved.

Just visited El Gaucho in HCM (middle of D1) today after having been to the newer Bangkok outlet quite some times over the last months. We had beef tartare (shared by us 3) and filet steaks with sides along with a nice bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley (a rare find) and sparkling water and digestives. Steaks were very...

I had really looked forward to coming to Gaucho. Was ready to pay the premium prices everyone talks about. Sadly, the result was a very average experience. The biggest problem is that it just doesn't deliver service or value commensurate with the very high prices it charges. Went for lunch. Problems from the start when I ordered an iced tea... More

Ate lunch at El Gaucho & were impressed with burger and Niçoise salad. Not a cheap eat but this is reflected in quality of food. Friendly staff particularly the chef who gave us a free shot with the bill. Restaurant was very quiet at lunchtime mid week.
