Description: The stunning Gaucho Manchester restaurant, set in a converted Grade II Listed Methodist Hall (the organ is still in residence), is spread over two lively mezzanine areas, with an open industrial kitchen and three private rooms. Situated by Deansgate and close to the Arndale Centre, Argentinean beef is the soul of the menu at Gaucho Manchester, which flies in the matured meat direct from Buenos Aires, although there are plenty of other equally succulent cuts to whet your appetite. This luxurious and spacious restaurant is also the perfect place to enjoy a large Argentine wine list and regular live music.

“Superb food, and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

The steak was delicious and cooked perfectly, the service was wonderful and everyone I spoke to was delightful. I was really impressed with the cheeses they had too - a tasty selection indeed. I will definately be making another trip - full credit goes to the manager and his lovely staff.

“Great steak house for a well deserved treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

Went on a friday at 1630 with the wife. There was only about 4 other tables being used so early but we were seated next to another couple so we heard eachothers conversations even though there was lots of free tables were a bit of privacy could be had. I had the gaucho taster plate which consisted of a sirloin, rib eye and a skirt steak. All were cooked wonderfully and were very tasty. The wifes fillet was equally good. We washed it all down with a bottle of Argentine tempranillo that was served at the correct temperature. The service was quite slow seeing that the restaurant was virtually empty but a lot more staff turned up as we were ready to leave. All in all we had a beautiful meal in a nice environment, it certainly is not cheap but the quality is very high. We will be back in an year or two as a treat

“Delicious but staff condescending”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Absolutely delicious steak but when I asked our waitress about the different wine selections and wanted a little help, she responded 'the wine selections are made by our experts and we've never been questioned before.'
Ruined a special and rare night our for a hard-working mother that would have otherwise been perfect!

“I'll be back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

The quality of the meat was matched only by the grandeur of the building. Saturday afternoon 1.00pm. Only four other diners. But that didn't detracted from the event. Attentive staff as you would expect with such small numbers to wait on. My lady friend ordered better than me on this occasion. The ceviche was superb and the trio of meats again was outstanding. I ordered the fillet mignon with mushroom sauce and chips. I was a bit disappointed didn't think it was worth £53 My starter was argentinian prawns £12. It consisted of four little split prawns like the ones you get on a prawn ring from Costco with the tail shell still attached. I know now what to order and will go back and order accordingly. So all in all great place, good food if a bit pricey.

“fantastic steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

last night was our first visit to Goucho. We had an excellent welcome from the staff. We intended to have a steak supper,each cut of steak was explained to us before we made our choice. When we had finished the meal we both agreed, that this was probably the best steak, we had eaten in a restaurant. The introduction to Argentinian red wine was also a revelation, we had an Argentinian Bonarda which was also excellent. We look forward to returning to Goucho, next time we are in Manchester.
