Was looking for a steakhouse, and was glad to find El Gaucho. The setting is wonderful overlooking the city, and the salad bar and steaks were really good at a fair price.

Great steak at a great price. The mountain top view only added to the enjoyable evening that we had and the service was excellent. Don't miss this place well worth it.
