“Fine meat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

The service was good and the meals really good. It is a chain restaurant but it was not standard boring service.

“My favourite place to eat out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Wow, everything is exquisite. The decor is classy and cosy but simplistic with a touch of Argentina with the arches and wall hangings. The staff are all friendly, smiling whilst working, even the chef had a grin on his face, which if you’ve worked in the industry you’ll know it’s a rare occurrence. And then there’s the food. Probably the best steak I’ve ever eaten, actually, after taking my friends there recently I know for sure it’s the best I’ve had. It falls apart in your mouth, is juicy but tender (and I have mine well done so I was pleasantly surprised at the quality). The hand cut chips were crispy yet fluffy on the inside and I had to keep a napkin under my chip throughout my meal because the corn on the cob was that juicy! Everything was superb. To top it off, it was great value for money; the smallest steak was twice the size of my fist and only €14 with sides between €3-€6. For €25 including a drink I am more than happy to recommend this amazing restaurant and I can safely say it’s my favourite place to eat.

“Great place for a steak - good Argentinian meat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Always a standard and reliable chain for grilled meat. Gauchos restaurants are all through the Netherlands. Generally crowded and often noisy, it's a sure-bet if you just have a craving for some good grilled meat.

“Nice steaks, as always”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

It's a Gaucho's, it's a chain, the serve argetinian steak in a dark wooden interior. It's pretty good as always, at a nice location in the heart of Amsterdam.

We had dinner with some colleagues. We all had steaks, different ones, with some vegetables and frites, it was good. I had the fish soup up front, which was a bit of a mistake, salt, fish from a can probably, mussels not too fresh. Some others had the carpaccio which they liked enough.

Service was good with the waiter explaining the different steaks with raw samples on a plateau, adding how he liked them best.

“Great Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

A few friends suggested we try Gauchos and we are glad we did. It isnt cheap, the house red being 25 euros, but as with the good food, it was a good bottle of wine.
If you like beef, this is THE place to eat it in Amsterdam...
Suggest you book. We arrived around 19.00 expecting the place to be empty and was only one table free.
