el Gaucho has two locations, one on the Plaza de Armas, the other one in Yanahuar, Avenida Emmel. II visited both. Last time I went to the Yanahuara branch. The "parrilladas" are well served: good meat and good portions. The indications on the menu (e.g.: "for 2-3") are right. You can trust... read more

I have been to El Gaucho three times in the last year. The first time I went I was very impressed with the portions and the salad bar, however the last two times I have been disappointed both with the price of the dishes and the quality of food. I think that there are better Parilladas out there, which offer... More

Had lunch here with my business associate. The size of the meat portions (450-500grms) is Large and I suggest you share one meat portion between 2 people and order the side items individually. One order of French Fries is more than enough for two people. Meat was good quality but not great. Now for some comments. There were two waiters... More

Everything about this place was great apart from the most important thing - the meat! The service was superb with a very attentive waiter. Good wine list and not overpriced. The location in a nice modern building in Yanahuara was great with a nice buzzy ambience. Even the salad bar was pretty good, a rarity in Peru. What let the... More

I spent the night with my cousins eating at this elegant restaurant in Yanahuara. The food was great, we had Cuadril for dinner combined with healthy salads, it was delicious. The service is very good also, I strongly recommend this restaurant, It is the best meat restaurant in Arequipa.

This restaurant has two locations: one on the Plaza de Armas next to the Hotel Sonesta Posada del Inca, and the other in the Yanahuara district. We tried them both and were well pleased with the service, the steaks, and the good, well-priced wine selections. The Yanahuara restaurant particularly caters to families at lunch time on Sundays.
