They do not cook anything. They just grill a piece of meat without anything specific. The meet comes from Bolivia and is better than Peruvian meet.

Great BBQ / Grill place for steak or any meat lovers and for the vegetarians they have great vegtable grills and salad bars. Fried papas from several types of potatoe including camote or sweet potato.

Disappointed that this has closed down because we were looking forward to a good steak dinner and the other places around the square seem to do typical pizzas and burgers.

Sorry for the inconvenience , currently our local Portal de Flores is closed for renovations. But we have two other locations, one on the street Emmel and the other in the Lambramani Mall. We hope to see you soon More

Steak lovers loved it. I had chicken and I thought it was overpriced...good but not great. Everyone who had salad was sick the next day.

Good menu for meat-lovers but also for others since they have a vergetarian option which in fact was delicious. The service was excellent and the prices quite reasonable, We went to the Yanahuara location (Memel Avenue) but I am pretty sure the one at Portal de Flores should be of equal quality and most accessible to most tourists.

The restaurant was recommended to us by our tour leader and he certainly did a good job ! We went as a group of ten guys who were on a bike tour and every one of us agreed that by any standard this was a very very good steak ! It was quite reasonably priced - no need to go... More

It was nice to walk into a restaurant on the Plaza de Armas that didn't have someone outside trying to lure you in - score #1! It is on the expensive side however the choices of cuts of meat are ample and perfectly cooked. We ended up getting one of the mixed grills so it was fantastic to have some... More

Great selection of local and American beef. Decent wine list with slightly elevated pricing though. Service had gotten better over the years, I am still missing the wine recommendations from the waiting staff however. Great place for couples, friends or even business.

El Gaucho has been my favorite bbq place, I haven't find another place with that flavor, the service is good, sometimes it is really busy. I love it but I need to be honest if you go near 9pm they don't put more salads so you won't enjoy the whole salad bar, the last time I went they told me... More

Great food, Great atmosphere, Great service. My steak was perfectly cooked. The bread and ahi salsa they serve is ultra addictive. It is a little on the expensive side, but I think it is well worth it.
