Eleven of us descended on Gaucho's in Beethovenstraat at 18:30 on a Wednesday evening.
A nice friendly greeting and drinks were ordered and served rapidly.
It was 30 minutes before our food orders were taken, bur it didn't really matter as we were enjoying good conversation and alcohol.
one hour later the food arrived and it was excellent. It is only fair to point out that everyone had ordered differently, so maybe an hours wait was reasonable.
I ordered a 400 gramme fillet steak and it was the best steak that I have ever eaten. Any criticism of the food could only be levelled at the French fries, which were McDonald's style (thin and stringy) whereas the chunky fries that we ordered would be considered normal size in most restaurants.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal and also all of the excellent red wines that were sampled extensively. We didn't have desserts as time was getting on and some of the guys were starting to feel the effects of jet lag.
I will definitely eat at Gaucho's again which is conveniently (for me) situated on the No. 5 tram route.
