A Classic with South American Flair

Very good overall with prompt and professional service. My meal was extremely well prepared and matched my order perfectly. A tip to remember in my experience in Latin America is to order in 1/4 increments vice attempting to use medium / medium rare etc. Also, if you have a preference for a... read more

My family and I went to lunch for Father's Day. I think service could have been better. It was crowded and there was the soccer game between Peru and Colombia (Copa America), and a certain moment I had - right next to me - a lady watching the game / waiting for a table. It was a little uncomfortable. Prices... More

I have eaten several times with colleagues at Rincon Gaucho while on business trip in Peru, and every time the dinner was very satisfying. Obviously, you have to love meat to enjoy a dinner at Rincon Gauchom but if you do, Lomo fino, T-bone steak, all are very fine. Get a jacket potato too, you won't regret it. It's fairly... More

We arrived at about 7:30 pm to a fairly empty restaurant and were seated straight away. We started with a "small" mixed grill for two which consisted of pieces of griddled beef,mushroom and sausage. My strip steak arrived,cooked rare and to perfection,and covered the entire plate. It was delicious (Argentinian beef is the way to go) My wife had kidneys... More

I had the parilla for one.. Included steak, chicken, pork chop, cow heart, cow kidney, sweet bread, sausage, and morcillo. Everything but the morcillo was prepared well and cooked to perfection. If you are having a craving for meat in Lima I would recommend this place. They also have a pretty good wine selection. The parilla for one is definitely... More

Ever since I dinned at the Rincon Gaucho a year ago I have just tried to get back there. My high expectations were exceeded with the meal today. Absolutely the best steak and fantastic service. The Tres Leches postre was excellent and a fitting way to end the meal. Got to get back again as soon as I can.

I dined here with two friends during a recent trip to Peru. I had been to this restaurant several years ago when it was at a different location. Two of us had the BBQ for One. There was an abundance of various meats such that we both filled up and had some meat left over. The BBQ included beef steak,... More

My girlfriend and I split the one person sampler and couldn't eat half of it, huge portion! The taste was amazing... for the most part. They had some intestinal cuts that my gringo pallet didn't like and the blood sausage was a bit much, but I know that is more my person taste

I ate at the Rincon Gaucho yesterday, for my 3rd visit. My first visit, in August of last year, was more or less identical to this last visit, except for the addition of my mother-in-law. We ordered the Parrillada para uno, which comes with fries. We also order a separate salad and drinks. The Parrillada is basically a hot serving... More

El Rincon Gaucho has become my favorite steak place ever! Outstanding careful attention by staff and steak to die for. Price is very reasonable for the food served...and the Tres Leches is simply the best. Try to go more than one time at this excellent restaurant.
