Nice place

Good menu for meat-lovers but also for others since they have a vergetarian option which in fact was delicious. The service was excellent and the prices quite reasonable, We went to the Yanahuara location (Memel Avenue) but I am pretty sure the one at Portal de Flores should be of equal quality and... read more

Steak lovers loved it. I had chicken and I thought it was overpriced...good but not great. Everyone who had salad was sick the next day.

The restaurant was recommended to us by our tour leader and he certainly did a good job ! We went as a group of ten guys who were on a bike tour and every one of us agreed that by any standard this was a very very good steak ! It was quite reasonably priced - no need to go... More

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 some... 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
