At Hillegersberg's lake this Argentinian restaurant is truly worthwhile the experience. Excellent steak, chimchurry that go down well with a nice Malbec. Kitchen is never a disappointment. Just make sure you make a reservation, otherwise you will not get in!

We chose this restaurant based on reviews on among others Tripadvisor. Having experienced the Argentinian grilled meat, we were exited and had high expectations. The venue itself was great and we were welcomed very kindly by the restaurant staff. The menu choice was great as was the explanation of the meat. We ordered among others the the rib-eye and a...

A beautiful, peaceful setting outside the bustle of central Rotterdam. The restaurant sits on a waterfront. There was a regatta taking place the evening we dined at Gauchos, fun to watch as we waited for our table. Service was attentive and helpful to this foreigner. Food was also good to excellent.

The steaks are cooked to perfection (although the smallest at 180g is a bit large for me). The baked potatoes are also very good but make sure that you order an extra portion of sour cream and ask for butter if, like me, you like that on your jacket potato. Staff are attentive and happy and the menu is in... More

A exceptional steak restaurant with great service. I had the best rib eye of my life one time however the next was very undercooked. Nothing that can't be fixed though. Stick with the steaks, the ribs have a very nice sauce but are very much over cooked.

I've been to Gaucho's a few times now, every time I'm not disappointed. The steak choice is great (cuts and sizes) and are all cooked to perfection however you prefer. Good choice of wines also. Overall good value.

Gauchos is always a safe choice when going for meat, as its quality is guaranteed. This one, however, has the big plus of the location! The view over the lake is stunning and romantic, especially if sitting outside. The inside of the restaurant is pretty classy as well. Reservation is recommended, if not strictly necessary!

If you like steaks, this is the place to be. Located in one of the most beautiful spots of Rotterdam you get a taste of Argentina. Great steaks & great wines - it can't be better.

Gauchos on the lake is a great place to wine and dine business colleagues, but is also great to chill out with family and friends. Paul and the team are very professional and make you feel at home. The two chefs have been there more than 20 years and can grill your steak to perfection! Good selection of wines as... More

Gauchos Grill Restaurant in Hillegersberg is situated in the green outskirts of the Bergse Voorplas and it has a beautiful view of nature and water. Here is widely grown and sailed. On the horizon you can see the impressive skyline of Rotterdam. Very suitable for a relaxed out-of-town session or for an atmospheric Latin night.
