Monterrey has a lot of steak restaurants but one of my favorites is el Gaucho, cuts are big enough for 4 people, meat is tender, remind me of Buenos Aires restaurants. Entraña is my favorite cut, wine selection is excellent, service is very good to, waiters are attentive and not overwhelming.

I´ve been a regular costumer of this restaurant since my childhood. It still has some of the best steaks in town and a salad that has become a trademark. Almost all steak houses in town have try to copy a version of the house salad, but none of them has succeeded. It contains lettuce, tomato, avocado, green olives and cheese,... More

This is a restaurant you must visit in Monterrey. I went with my father and we ordered the churrasco to share it was so good and so big that we couldn't ate everything. It's better if you call for reservation.

El Gaucho is a restaurant we've visited many time over the years. Excellent quality beef at a good price and efficient, friendly waiters, many of whom know us well. We enjoy catching up on how their families are. But the main attraction is the fantastic Argentine-oriented cuisine. The proportions are so abundant my wife and I now share a dish,... More

This restaurant is obviously expensive, but the food is worth it because it is extremely delicious and cooked. Although do not expect to go to your house with a full stomach, because the food there are served in small portions.

El Gaucho is probably the best restaurant in Monterrey. Every time I have dined here, the restaurant has been packed. It is especially popular at lunch for business meetings. It is an attractive restaurant with a warm reception and very good service. This day my visit was for lunch, and while I usually wait for dinner to have steak, you... More
