We had special nght with my friend birthday at El Gaucho Xuan Dieu. Our steak was so goog and they have friendly staffs here. At the end, you will get some shots of caramel vodka from the house, happy ending.

For a great change of pace in Vietnam, this is it. We all had lamb chops or lamb shank. Cooked to perfection. The sides and starters were excellent. A great selection of wine. The servers were all too committed to make the meal just right. Prices are equal to a steak house in San Jose, California. Quality and service tops!

We ate here last weekend and were really impressed. It is very expensive - possibly the most expensive place to get a steak in Hanoi - but the quality is outstanding as well as the service. The atmosphere is very cool and the location also very convenient being in the West Lake / Tay Ho area. Oh and the vodka... More

Firstly, do NOT look at the prices or you'll have a heart attack. It's expensive so don't even think about it if you're on a budget. I got very lucky and was shouted :) Prices aside...one of the best steakhouses I've ever been to. My lamb shanks with mashed potatoes were absolutely perfect in every way. The lamb was moist...

Expensive price but a very beautiful place in hanoi. Lot of choice and our bottle of wine was exellent. Waiters don't speak a very good english with us but maybe my english is quite hard to understand...

We stayed in Ha noi for one night and luckily found this restaurant. The steaks and side dishes(macncheese, potatoes au gratin) were amazing. The owner even shared a few shots with us, it was a very nice gesture.

Walking from 38C into the cool interior was heaven. The décor & music evoked B A and the food followed suit. Complimentary bread rolls with garlic butter were a perfect beginning and the steak was the real thing. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Nice finishing touch an ice cold liqueur on the house. Unlikely that I will go again... More
