Great food, but too many kids

Although a bit of a trek out of Javea, El Gaucho was an impressive building with beautiful decor. The menu was good & varied, and the chef sent a few nice surprises out between courses for us to try. The service was also really good, with the staff both attentive & knowledgable. Sadly, what let it... read more

My wife & I visited on 20 August & have been going to El Gaucho now for the past 3 years. Why do we keep going back, very simple; unlike some restaurants that become acclaimed very quickly, they have maintained their high standards for service, quality & value for money, by sticking to the same principles that have been honed...

Having failed to get a table each time we have been to Javea, we got organised this year and booked El Gaucho. I am so thankful we did. All of the food was delicious the steaks were cooked perfectly and the mussels were the biggest and juiciest I have ever seen. The attentive waiter brought a spoon as he saw... More

I visited many times this summer because I know how good the steaks are! The meat is incredible and always cooked to order, full of flavour and melts in your mouth. That said I want to be honest and our table agrees the service was better in April & May than July and August maybe because not as busy, We... More

My wife and I had a fantastic time at El Gaucho last night. The food was faultless; the mussels in a Thai curry sauce starter plentiful and superb, my huge T-bone steak tender and mouth-watering and my wife's salmon, full of flavour. All superbly complimented by a couple of bottles of House vino and served up in a very relaxed... More

This place has been my favorite in the area for a few years now. Went black recently after not having been for a few months (my loss) and was instantly reminded why I love it. The food was amazing. They had made a few small adjustments to the starters on their nightly menu, however the mains and deserts were the... More

We visited for a family birthday as we were staying nearby. This was a party of 14, including 6 children, so not the easiest party to accommodate. The whole experience was first class. The service exemplary. The food delicious and the atmosphere relaxed and welcoming. The fact that people were queuing outside for tables is testament to the quality of... More
