I have been to this restaurant several times and had a great experience each time. The steaks, cooked Argentinean style, are the main attraction and do not disappoint. Great cut of meat, well-seasoned, and expertly cooked over an open flame. Reasonably priced too, though fairly...expensive by Rosarito standards. Impressively, the restaurant also offers a number of low-priced dishes (I'm talking $5 sandwiches and $2 empanadas, which are huge and delicious) that do not skimp on the care and quality. Even the french fries are fresh and delicious. Empanadas, forget about it, great. Good sangria and wine selections to accompany. You can't really go wrong with this gem.More

I took my husband here for his first Father’s Day and it lived up to the hype. The service was excellent and friendly. The atmosphere was casual and comfortable with nice jazz music playing in the background. The food was AMAZING, best steak in Rosarito.

We had the good fortune of finding this delicious restaurant. The steak was one of the best we had ever had and the empanadas so very rich and flavorful. When we travel we always start out with the plan to eat at a different place...each night and then find one we go back to more than once in our trip. We already have plans to go for a second meal at this our new favorite restaurant in Rosarito.More

As we travel to Baja, at least monthly, we went to lunch at El Gaucho Argentino Restaurant which moved to it's new location, a few blocks north of the main drag (Blvd Benito Juarez) and Del Cedro Street. Much larger premises...with a dining area in...the traditional country colors of blue and white is adorned with posters of soccer Argentinian stars. Very clean and neat with an open concept view of the kitchen and at the back of the restaurant in full view is the wood fire "horno" (the grill) where all the delicious meats are grilled. The portions are large for us, so my wife and I split the "Lomito" steak sandwich, on a bolillo (french roll), complemented with a great salad and french fries. The food is excellent and we plan to come some day for an "Argentine Steak" dinner. The restaurant closes at 8 pm....so, an early dinner it will be for us. Looking forward....Great place to eat.More

Great place to get a good steak. Nothing fancy, just a clean family run restaurant. The various cuts of meat are grilled Argentine style over an open fire pit. They come with a choice of side and a delicious chimichurri sauce. We stared with two...different empanadas that were very tasty, then split the huge ribeye. Nice selection of beer and wines.More

I live in Rosarito and drive past this restaurant often and always thought i should stop and check it out. My friend Gaby had been to their other restaurant and she mentioned the food was great so we stopped by and I am so glad...I did. We started our meal having empanadas and we tried one of each and they were all so delicious and Flaky. Then we split a salmon with chimichurri sauce and ended up having the cookies for dessert. They have excellent service and they were very attentive at all times. Thank you so much everyone! See you again, soon! PatriciaMore

You can get as tender rib eye or filet mignon in the States as at this place, but you would pay 2 or 3 times more. You could cut with a spoon. House wine (local) is a great match for only 13 bucks a bottle.

I have been in Mexico for 25 years and never tasted a steak sandwich like we had @ El Gaucho Argentina. Tender filet mignon, cooked to perfection & large. It was wonderful. Absolutely a must place to eat if you like meat!

The new location of El Gaucho Argentino is beautiful. The dining room is exceptionally clean and the hospitality is unparalleled. Watching Gerardo work his magic at the BBQ grill sets the stage for a terrific meal. The Tomahawk steak is perfectly seasoned, and simply melts...in your mouth with an incredibly delicious flavor. Our salad made with crisp greens, lettuce, tomatoes and onions topped with a mild oil and vinegar dressing went perfectly with our steaks. The house homemade sangria is superb and is excellent with any of the meals. We thoroughly enjoyed it with our Tomahawk steaks, Additionally, there is a great selection of wines and beers to go with any meal, along with tasty deserts. You will never be disappointed eating at El Gaucho Argentina, it's a consistantly wonderful experiance!More

This was our first time eating here. We were greeted at the door, immediately found a comfortable table for us, and made us feel so welcome. Then the food came! OMG! The steak sandwich with fries on the side was magnificent! The meat was tender...and grilled carmelized onions with beautiful seasoning. The fries were also flavored with herbs and very little salt. All my friends and husband were very pleased also! SO GOOD! It is very clean and the owners speak Spanish and English! We will be back!More

Or this place will knock you completely off the wagon. They have a steak sandwich called a Lomito that is incredible. Grilled filet mignon, sauted onions and a traditional Argentinian sauce on fresh baked bread. The only thing better is when they fire up the...big grill on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights for the Parrillada Argentina. More than you can possibly eat but it’s so good you’re not going to want to stop.More

This restaurant is fabulous. While the menu is not extensive, all the food our table ordered was wonderful. We tried three different types of empanadas - Corn, Spinach, and Beef. We all raved. Three of us ordered the steak entree while one had chicken. None...of us was disappointed in our meal. I have to say the service was amazing. Gerado (owner's husband) was beyond friendly and helpful. He answered our questions, made suggestions, and was so pleasant. We went on a Monday night. Friday-Sunday they have Argentine BBQ, so we will definitely be going back for that. I highly recommend this restaurant.More
