Very good

Have gone to this restaurant several times and each time it was very good. The food is of a very high standard and quite reasonable in price. Will return.

Well above average restaurant for this part (indeed any part) of Spain. Lunchtime menu includes (good) house wine and extremely good value overall.

We spent a lovely Saturday evening here with our two young sons and Granny.A very welcoming and friendly staff, great atmosphere with the very warming fire, and great food. Our sons shared the T-bone which they loved together with the apple sorbet....just wonderful!

This place is away from the hustle and bustle of the beach and the Arenal, with views towards Montgo.... Beautiful steaks, cooked to each persons individual specification. Our party ranged from 15 months to 65 years + and suited us all. The staff were friendly and attentive, food was lovely.... and so was the vino tinto! Will definitely be going... More

First time at this place although other members of our party of several had eaten there before. Although it was the Spanish Christmas Day, nothing for the staff here was too much to ask. We got a brilliant table, enjoyed excellent service and the food was outstanding. I would thoroughly recommend El Gaucho to anybody living here or visiting, five... More

This restaurant was a real find in the Javea area. It is an Argentinian steak house just outside Javea so you have to drive to it. We had the menu of the evening - and were amazed at the value. This included a starter, a main and dessert - you choose the main and that is the price you pay... More

Very good ambiance and interesting decor. Not the best place for vegetarians, although fish options for starters and main courses are available. We chose the menu of the day which offers about 5 choices for each course. The price covers everything. I paid 22€ for my meal. It was wonderful smoked trout, avocado and blue cheese salad starter, beautifully presented... More

If you want good steak or other super quality grilled meat, must go here! They have good fish as well, but the meat is on the top! Average prices, not very expensive for good quality, stuff very professional and friendly.
