Excellent food

A nice place, great surroundings with real fires for a winters night. Friendly staff and good service. The food was excellent I had the fillet steak and it is probably the best steak I have ever had, it simply melted in my mouth and was cooked to perfection. All the food was good but the steak... read more

A nice place, great surroundings with real fires for a winters night. Friendly staff and good service. The food was excellent I had the fillet steak and it is probably the best steak I have ever had, it simply melted in my mouth and was cooked to perfection. All the food was good but the steak stood out as perfect.

We visited this lovely eatery whilst staying with friends in Javea. We came here years ago and enjoyed it but apparently it declined a bit, so they changed owner, refurbed and its really nice inside. The food was lovely with a small bowl of soup as a complimentary starter, I am vegetarian and had the grilled veg dish delightful they... More

Visited El Gaucho with Argentine family numerous times last year. We all thought that the food was outstanding. The set menu is a great deal and you always somehow manage to fit in pudding despite the enormous steaks. This is definitely somewhere we will visit time and time again.

We were passing and the place didn't look open, so I called and they welcomed us in, although without a booking, we just struck lucky and sat upstairs overlooking the action. The barbecue sent delicious smells upstairs and the menu was good value, tasty and well served. the bar is laid out with saddles for seats and it's a great... More

Been here many times over the years, was disappointed when we went in August, as the service was not good, but we decided to give it a try on a Monday night with family. We had the Serrano ham to start that was carved at the table, with a certain amount of theatre, and it was wonderful. Most of us... More

Went for the T bone, everything was perfect. Three courses about £30 plus drinks, will be returning shortly. If you appreciate good food give this a whirl. The decor, the mountain setting, there is nothing i would change. A menu to suit all, three couses 16 to 40 euros.

We've been here a couple of times and each time it's been excellent. The food is very good quality and the set menu has a large amount of choice and is good value. Last night was no exception. After we'd ordered our drinks we were given a consommé which was full of meaty flavour. For starters I went for the... More

We were on a short break to our villa which is close by. As we visited el Gaucho in the summer we thought it would be great to see the new year in there. It was a fantastic evening with fabulous food and staff who could not do enough for you. We saw the new year in with style! We... More
