Wonderful meal

My family of 6 ate here last week as we fancied a steak and had read the great reviews. Luckily we arrived quite early and managed to get a table but I'd advise others to book. The setting is lovely and the staff very attentive without being intrusive. The food was first class. We ate from the... read more

We went to this restaurant with ten other people to celebrate our 55th Anniversary. It has a beautiful courtyard and the evening was beautifully warm. Plenty of room for parking but do make reservations as it gets booked up quickly. We all ate off the menu and it had many good choices. Most of us settled on steak for our... More

We have been to El Gaucho a couple of times over the last few years and whilst it's no the cheapest restaurant in Javea it is without doubt one of the best. Sitting on the side of Montgo. El gaucho offers a great ambience the waiters are attentive and polite the food is superb - I am a bit of... More

Went on spec one evening in July. We had a lovely experience, with great steaks and lots of extra courses in between which was a really nice touch. Everything was very good and I think it was the nicest meal out we had in the Java area during our two week stay. Would recommend and would definitely visit again.

In the midst of the tourist season where everyone seems to be busy coupled with extreme heat in some areas it is rare indeed to find a truly professional set up where nothing seems to faze the staff or the management. Its just a sea of calm efficiency. The food is first rate with steaks being the speciality cooked in... More

We ate from the Menu del Dia with prices ranging from EUR20-26 depending on the choice of main course. The food was top notch and included several extras between courses. We had different cuts of steak and my wife had the salmon. All fantastic but I would recommend the chuleton. The stand-out starter was the corn pasty. The salsa accompanying... More

This is our second visit to El Gaucho and the food and service are excellent. I would suggest you book as this place get's very busy and I can understand why. They offer a set or a la carte menu, and we ordered from the set menu. They first bring a soup, then the starter you ordered - all our... More

Having been to Javea several times now this is the first time we have visited "El Gaucho". We hadn't booked and the restaurant was very busy however the staff found us a table no problem. We had the set menu which included the rib eye steak. Also served in between courses were bread, soup, salad and a fruit smoothie -... More

We visited as a family on a warm summers evening a couple of weeks ago. Seated under a fan on the porch (no aircon inside) it was warm so not a night out when you first arrive in Spain unless you are acclimatized. The waiters were attentive, but not over powering, and even ordering slightly off menu they were accommodating.... More

We visited during our 10 day stay near the Montgo. The food at this restaurant is brilliant. One of the best steaks I've ever had. It's great value for money with loads of extras that don't appear on the menu. Would highly recommend for a great dining experience in the Javea area.
