Gaucho’s Steakhouse is a great place to enjoy a delicious steak. The meat is very tasty and tender. The pork sausage is some of the best sausage I have eaten. The atmosphere is warm and cozy and the staff is friendly and very attentive. I...would highly recommend this establishment to friends and family. If you are in Panama City and looking for a great steak Gaucho’s is the restaurant for you.More

Stopped by while on vacation. The bread is awesome, the sample appetizer we were given with sausage and chicken along with the garlic mushrooms was exploding with flavor. Impressed! I ordered the Steak kebabs cooked medium well perfectly. My wife and son ordered the grilled...salmon. They were very happy with it as well. Would definitely eat here again. Prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food.More

This is an old place and you can tell by the décor, but that's not a deal breaker at all. Just an observation. The foods were fresh and delicious. The fresh bread that they brought out, along with perfectly soft butter, brought back memories from...when I was a kid in Brazil. It tasted grilled bread with butter (pao na chapa). So, naturally, one was not enough, we had to have 2 of them. When you say medium rare, they bring you exactly what you ordered. No ifs and buts, it was simply perfect. We asked for mashed potatoes and those was perfect as well! The calamari was very fresh. The only item we weren't impressed was the Caesar salad, which was our own fault for ordering, out of guilt, for eating 16oz of meat. We though we should balance things out....but now, the salad was not the best, but not the worst either. Focus on the bread, steaks and breads when you come here and you'll be golden!More

The DelMonico steak was amazing, cooked perfectly. The tres’ leches desert was the best I’d ever had. Definitely a must visit if your in Panama.

My friend and I wanted to dine at a casual decent restaurant near our hotel, the Waldorf Astoria. Only a five minute walk to Gaucho, a quaint place with tablecloths and window curtains. We both enjoyed the $16.95 steak with a potato side.

I had the BEST ribeye ever! They offered a 16 ounce and I said that was way too much. They said the smallest they could do was 12 ounce. I ordered it medium rare and it was perfect. I ate 1/2 and they boxed up...my leftovers with happiness! I had happiness twice!More

I went there today to try some typical Argentinian foods. First their menu does not include typical foods like “empanadas” or the great Argentinian deserts. Here is my experience with the food: The “picada” was an awful “chorizo” totally unrelated to the Argentinian flavour, then...some “morcilla” that was tasteless... I requested a “milanesa” which was awfully prepared likely it was frozen and then poorly cooked. It was tasteless. On desserts they had a “tres leches” which I tried and it was industrial. Not a steakhouse, not an Argentinian restaurant but just a place you should never go to.More

I ate there last night and had the delmonico with a baked potato. The meat was good but you are only offered either french fries or a baked potato with the steak. I paid extra for a salad. So that's it: steak, potato and salad...which I paid extra for. The steak was good but for the price it should have come with extras.More

This place has been around forever, and they still have the same decor, lazy waiters that stand in the corner watching their phones instead of the customers. It is so disappointing as I used to enjoy this place so much, but not anymore. The menu...is the same for as long as I know it and there are things on the menu they haven't served in 3 years. I had overcooked steaks that were cold when they came out. Extremely oily house salad, and now the bread is half the size it used to be. Waiters don't smile, don't greet you, it is like they are doing you a favor because they are there. You will have to wave down someone and hope they are not on whatsapp. This was the most depressing dinner I have ever eaten in Panama. It was like they were closed for so long due to the panademic, but were mad they had to go back to work. Might be time for refreshing ownership as restaurants in Panama City have passed this dinasaur. Too many great and inventive restaurants that want your business to go to. A firm pass, and goodbye to a restaurant that wont change a thing.More
