“Excellent steak.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

We dropped in during prime dining time without a reservation and got a table immediately. There was a minor language barrier, but nothing serious. The service was enthusiastic, friendly, and attentive. We were presented with a platter of different cuts of meat to choose from, and got a nice explanation of the rather complicated menu. The drinks, salad, and entrees arrived promptly, but we didn't feel rushed. The steak was cooked exactly as ordered, and was of high quality. My filet mignon was perfect, one of the best I've had.

“Brilliant service, lovely steak, a real treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

We both had surf and turf which arrived cooked exactly to our specifications and with a great selection of vegetables. My gluten free requirements were perfectly understood and catered for with care, and with no compromise on taste and choice.

I had a stunning cheese plate and my partner enjoyed his Coppa Evita Peron dessert.

The wine was amazingly good value (very much appreciated when our mains were 30 euro each!) and although by no means cheap we felt that our 55/each meal was worth every cent and more.

Service was attentive, courteous and prompt. The restaurant ambience was great - a buzzy lovely atmosphere, a light and modern space, and we liked being able to see right into the food prep area.

An excellent experience and far exceeding our expectations, especially in this quarter of town.

“Amsterdam is full of Gauchos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

If you like steaks then Gauchos is a must in Amsterdam. Argentinean restaurants in Amsterdam are also good but Gauchos managed to make a good name. The service is not always good as sometimes waitresses may be rude. This happened to me twice. It's usually busy and may request a reservation depending on which area you are visiting.

“Quality restaurant and steak!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

We arrived very late at our hotel (about 9.45pm) and were desperate for dinner, as our flight had been delayed. The hotel recommended that we tried Gaucho’s Steakhouse and even offered to call ahead to make sure they stayed open for us.

Gaucho’s was just a 5-minute walk away from our hotel at Leidseplein, so we got there in no time at all. We were greeted by the manager, who immediately acknowledged that the hotel had called ahead and showed us to our table. The restaurant had an open kitchen in the middle of the floor, and with the high ceiling, it was a pretty impressive set-up. What was great about it is that the ventilation system was so good that there was no food smells that hung in the air or stuck to our clothes.

Service was excellent and prompt. Our waiter gave us time to settle down and order drinks, and then he brought the different cuts of meat to the table and explained each cut in detail. The meat looked fresh and smelt amazing – for a steak-lover! The steak was cooked perfectly and tasted as good as it looked. You have the option of ordering the steak and sides separately, or in a ‘set’ with side(s) and sauce(s). I would highly recommend the pepper sauce – it really enhanced the steak rather than drowned the taste.

Amsterdam is full of ‘Argentinean Steakhouses’ and I tried a few of them. I would rate Gaucho’s as one of the better ones in the city.
