Ate hear last week, five adults and a ten month old baby, no booking and a Saturday night. Chose the set menu which worked out to be very good value. Food was gorgeous, wine delicious and service immense. Very large restaurant with both outside and inside dining. We ate inside as we had not booked and outside was full. Decor... More

Masena, Bon Amb, be afraid be very afraid ! This place hits the spot every single time, infact 10 times in 8 weeks! Great steaks both in quality and value, the best mussels ( trust me I've tried them all ) and the prawn and avocado salad to start come on 'mmm it's all you need all night. Any negative... More

We visited this restaurant tonight and it was lovely from start to finish. We arrived just after 7pm without a reservation but they did have a few spare tables. We chose menu of the day and mine was a starter of smoked salmon, avocado and blue cheese salad with salmon for main and a pudding of choc brownie. Everything was... More

Great family evening meal. Well looked after, despite not being able to converse in Spanish. Very attentive staff, happy to discuss and accommodate dietary exclusions for gluten/dairy free daughter. Superb steaks all round, spicy chicken wings and Thai curry mussels to die for. Three courses each ( for five of us), two large beers, a glass of cava, a bottle... More

Restaurant has a beautiful location and the lawn in front is perfect for children as they can run there and find a big company of friends. The quality of meet was above average, but I won't call it perfect. Everything is spoiled by the time you have to wait to get the menu (40 mins) and each of your meals.... More

We went after reading the reviews on Trip adviser and glad we did, we did not pre book but they were able to accommodate us, so pre book or miss out! Cheerful Spanish staff with attentive service, when the food arrived we were all very pleased, steaks excellent and cooked as requested. When in Javier we will be back Perfecto

We had a lovely meal here on holiday earlier this week and set menu not as expensive as we expected as the starters and desserts were included in the price - and the bread and alioli, soup aperetif and sorbet in between starters and main came for free! Our teenage boys thought the T bone and Rib eye steaks were... More

Having found and enjoyed a thoroughly good meal last year my wife & I went back to El Gaucho last night. We had booked earlier in the week (definitely required to guarantee a table) and upon arrival after a few moments we were greeted exactly as you would expect and shown to our table and asked what we would like...

Absolutely wonderful restaurant! A hidden gem - excellent service, setting and the food quality and taste is excellent. You won't taste a better t-bone or rib eye steak outside of South America and their desserts are to die for. I also highly recommend their Thai curry mussel starter. Don't be put off by the off by the main road location,... More
