Bit pricey but worth a good steak.

It was nice to walk into a restaurant on the Plaza de Armas that didn't have someone outside trying to lure you in - score #1! It is on the expensive side however the choices of cuts of meat are ample and perfectly cooked. We ended up getting one of the mixed grills so it was fantastic to have... read more

Great selection of local and American beef. Decent wine list with slightly elevated pricing though. Service had gotten better over the years, I am still missing the wine recommendations from the waiting staff however. Great place for couples, friends or even business.

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... 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
