“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Not only was the food top notch - we were treated like royalty...was nice to treat ourselves to some "haute cuisine" amongst the more rustic fare found around Phuket (which we also loved)...we will be back here next time.

“Breakfast to die for!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Had an amazing time at this resort in 2010. Fabulous staff and hotel. Rooms were amazing and very comfortable.

The breakfast was outstanding with pastries to die for!!

Would recommend, some meals slightly pricey would be the only criticism.

“Very Good Food, maybe a little expensive.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

We did visit El Gaucho twice as the setting is very good overlooking Karon beach. The food was good & plenty of it, but maybe a little expensive. But the beer at 150 bht for a small bottle was very pricey. The service charge is added to the bill, which does not happen at all restaurants, maybe because it is part of the Movenpick?

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

This place is gem in Karon. We sat upstairs in an aircon room that was really good. The service was a bit slow, but very friendly. The food was very good and they also offered a triple dessert with pana cotta, creme brule and another dish for 200 thb that was spectaluar.

Ok, overall this restaurant is way ahead of the rest I tried in Karon when it comes to quality and therefore it cost a bit more. You can order from an Asian and a grill menu and will not be disapointed.

“El Gaucho...high quality food but expensive.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

Our first restaurant to eat at in Karon. We chose to go upstairs and inside on a very humid night and the restaurant was well air conditioned and beautifully decorated. The service is excellent and the food(we ordered Thai) was fresh,well cooked and gorgeous. No mange tout and baby sweetcorn here I am afraid just good quality very tasty food that however comes at a price. Again we had our usual 2 starters,2 mains with a portion of egg fried rice, noodles with drinks, the bill came to nearly 2500BHT!! It is expensive but if you think you deserve a treat or have extra money left go here as it beats most of the restaurants in Karon for quality.
