“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

We were in this restaurant several times and every time they confirmed that quality of food and good service is important. The only thing we are a bit disappointed they don't have gluten free brad which we expect on such a place.
Even though we returned several times there already and will go again.

“Nowadays One of the Best Address for Steaks in Vienna”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

I love good steaks and therefore I had to try the new El Gaucho in Vienna. Getting there with high expectations, I was not disappointed. The first challenge was to get a table and therefore we had to reserve some days upfront. While waiting for our table in the restaurant we saw that some walk-ins did not one. Therefore you should make a reservation, because the restaurant is still quite new.
As starter I had a Ruccola salad (Balsamico and Grana Padana). The salad had a good size and the oil and vinegar was very good.
As main dish I took the dry aged rib eye steak cooked medium rare with grilled vegetables on the side. They definitely cooked it right and the quality of the Austrian meat was perfect. As desert we had the espresso crème brûlée and the Schwarzwälder-Kirsch-Spitz which we've also enjoyed.
Service staff was also friendly. All in all, I definitely can recommend El Gaucho for good steaks in Vienna!
