My favorite place to eat in the world. Outstanding Argentine beef. Great service and parking available. Folk tend to seat and eat real slow. You gotta try the Tres Leche Cake appreciate the large portions that are regular here. Salad will catch your attention and fill you up. Gotta get back there as soon as possible.

Everything, starting with the Pisco Sour, and ending with the most delicious filet I've ever had (mushroom sauce) was wonderful! Our waiter was so gracious and helped us immensely with our wine choice. BEST Cabernet - from Argentina! Very reasonably priced.

We visited this restaurant with a very large group. We had over 30 college age students and adults there and we were given the upstairs room. We were celebrating the fact that these students had just finished their first year of college. The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding!

Upmarket Restaurant with vaket parking at the front. Has been open since 1963 as they show on the nicely hand crafted menu sleeves. We started with Bread (later discovered to be S. 12) which was mice - freshly heated with a sekection of accompaniment. For the main course we shared a salad with Avocado (S. 35) and we each had...

We have been eating here for nearly 30 years. The location has changed 3 times since we first ate here first in 1988 and at least one of the waiters has worked here for that time. They serve both Argentinian and American beef cooked to your requirements. The black pudding starter is particularly tasty, the house salad is excellent and... More

Delicious food - a little pricey. This restaurant is a well established eatery in Barranco. We had dinner there and enjoyed the food and service.

Absolutely the best beef restaurant in Lima, Peru. The meat is cooked to perfection and the service is outstanding. The medio lomo is the best bargain but there are numerous cuts of meat available. The wine list is extensive. The Rincon Gaucho is my favorite beef restaurant in the world!...and I will be back.

My family and I went to lunch for Father's Day. I think service could have been better. It was crowded and there was the soccer game between Peru and Colombia (Copa America), and a certain moment I had - right next to me - a lady watching the game / waiting for a table. It was a little uncomfortable. Prices... More

Very good overall with prompt and professional service. My meal was extremely well prepared and matched my order perfectly. A tip to remember in my experience in Latin America is to order in 1/4 increments vice attempting to use medium / medium rare etc. Also, if you have a preference for a "medium" or 1/2 steak, I would recommend trying...
