Started our holiday and went there for a meal, it was just amazing the food that we ordered, every mouth full was a pleasure,the management and staff ( tam ) could not do enough for you, so at the end of our holiday we went back and it was just as good as the first time, 5 star all the way
Thank you very much,
Nancy and alex

“Total Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

Ahh this place was fabulous! We were hankering after a steak and this didn't disappoint. Cooked to perfection with impeccable service made all the better by a true host of a manager! He did a great job making everyone who came through the door feel welcome! Yes it's on the upper end of the price scale but if you're wanting great western food this is the place to head too. Good wine selection and great side dishes too.

“Overpriced and overrated.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

We ate here after wandering around the area in search of a place to eat, and were getting tired and hungry when we came across this place.
On arrival to the restaurant, we were told we could eat at the bar or at a table on the balcony, we chose the balcony, but it was very cramped and I could not sit next to my husband (he is deaf and sitting opposite makes conversation during the meal very difficult). The food was overpriced with the best steak on the menu costing £83 (136$), which is twice what you would expect to pay in a nice London restaurant.
We had a burger and a pasta dish (due to everything being very expensive), and these cost around £12 ($20) each. The food was nice but overpriced for what you get, I have eaten much better food for a lot less money. We then shared a desert which was ok, but again overpriced and rather tasteless. I couldn't enjoy my meal because I kept thinking how ridiculously expensive everything was.

Atmosphere in the restaurant seemed nice, but on the balcony it was rather cramped and hot.

I wouldn't go there again.

“A Welcome Break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

After a week of noodles and rice we were ready for a good meat fuelled meal. We chose El Gaucho based on reviews in our Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor and had high expectations for our steaks. We were not disappointed. The food was lovely, with steaks equal if not better than any we have had in the expensive London steakhouses. The service was exceptional helped with a complimentary homemade vodka to wash it down.
The ambience in the restaurant is cosy and cosmopolitan with a small Spanish tapas feel bar downstairs.

“My first visit with El Gaucho in Vietnam.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Good and friendly impression of the place from when enter to I leave.
Was seated by the bar as a single walkin without reservations. I quite enjoy sitting by a bar.
Excellent service and, and excellent quality of food.
Only thing I did not appreciate is that smoking is allowed inside.
When I enjoy a good meal I would like to do it without cigarette smoke.
Overall a very good experience, Remove the cigarettes and it would have been excellent.
