Good meat, love the flavor, don't go too late

El Gaucho has been my favorite bbq place, I haven't find another place with that flavor, the service is good, sometimes it is really busy. I love it but I need to be honest if you go near 9pm they don't put more salads so you won't enjoy the whole salad bar, the last time I went they told me... read more

Great food, Great atmosphere, Great service. My steak was perfectly cooked. The bread and ahi salsa they serve is ultra addictive. It is a little on the expensive side, but I think it is well worth it.

At El Gaucho, they know how to prepare a good steak, but it is very expensive, especially by Arequipan standards. The salad bar is disappointing. They do not have wine by the glass, so you're forced to buy a half-bottle (from a limited list) if you aren't up to polishing off a full bottle. One particularly annoying thing about El... More

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 them. The salad bar is really disappointing: you... 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.
