Best Place for Steak in Kuwait by U.S. Standards

One of the best places for steak in Kuwait . . . most of the time I do not eat steak in Kuwait -- it's just not the environment. Lebanese food, Mediterranean food, those make more sense -- steak? Difficult to get. But Gaucho has a reputation for fine steaks -- close to what you'll get in the USA... read more

This is their second location that I've found. Their main Restraunt is on gulf road but this place is right inside Avenue's Mall. Across from the Cheese Factory. Really nice place because it has the same quality steak, cooked to order. Nothing but the best from this place. I'm totally satisfied leaving there. I love the steak from both places...

I visited Gaucho for dinner with family during my holiday. We got the mocktails which are really tasty! We each got a steak which was really tasty but we were disappointed with the presentation. The steak was just plonked in the middle of the plate and the sides came separately in smaller plates - it just didnt look as fantastic... More

I prefer the Gaucho's co-located with The Palms Hotel off of Road 25 (Gulf Road) over the one in Avenues as this has a more intimate setting and great staff. The steaks are wonderfully prepared. The only drawback that could be said is that it is a bit on the pricey side, so not a place to go all the... More

I love this place. I highly recommend this for lunch and business, perfect setting and excellent selection of beef from South America. Try it!

Must eat at the Gaucho every six months or less to remember what a good steak should taste like! I really had forgotten and after a few recent disappointments in other "meat" restaurants my Argentinian 300g sirloin cooked medium rare with a side of perfect Bernaise Sauce brought me back to reality. The setting is luxurious and the staff were... More

The restaurant offers many cuts of beef from Argentina. The meat is so tender. The best steak is here at the Gaucho Grill.

My party had the afternoon pleasure of lunching at Gaucho Grill in the Avenues Mall. We were looking for a Steakhouse online, and discovered this one. After being seated and given a unique folding menu from which to choose, I selected a Goat Cheese and Beet salad to start. I was surprised with the layers of flavor in this dish,... More

OK, there are two Gaucho Grills - my opinion is go to the Palms in Salwa; the Avenues, though nice has a different, more casual ambiance than the Palms. It depends, naturally how serious a foodie one is of course. For me, the Palms restaurant is the business, with staff that knows steak. They know red meat. I tend not... More
