Description: We are a small restaurant with big flavor. We offer Argentinian platters such as Lomito (Succulent Filet Mignon Sandwich), Empanadas with many different fillings and our famous Parrillada Argentina (Argentine Barbecue) every saturday featuring several high cuality meats. We are only a block away from the beautiful Rosarito Beach, and only 45 minutes south of San Diego. Stop by and see what all the talk is about. Make a day trip out of it and enjoy the beautiful scenery in Rosarito.

The owners were super nice & the food fresh and delish. We took a bunch of food to go and enjoyed it later at our B&B - I wanted to go back in the morning to get more empanadas!!
The prosciutto sammie was terrific, the emapanadas wonderful (tuna was amazing & we had a couple of meat ones). DH loved loved loved the bread pudding! and I loved the arroz con leche - check this place out you will not be disappointed!

Look no further. We finally got around to visiting El Gaucho. We've already gone back for more empenada's. Our host also taught us about mate and other things Argentinian.

We've had a vacation home in Rosarito (Baja, MX) for nearly 9 years now. For anyone who lives there or frequents this town often, there are only so many taco stands you can eat at (enough already). We happened to stumble across this place and WOW.........what a find. We had the steak sandwiches & french fries. BEST MEAL IN BAJA EVER!!!! Not only is the food great, but the atmosphere is very clean & quaint. The owners are a beautiful couple that take a LOT OF PRIDE in their food and making you feel very welcome.
We loved it so much, we went again for the exact same meal. It is our NEW FAVORITE place to go now. I just hope this place doesn't change anything as it is PERFECT.
I would love to see this place get a lot more business since the food is great..........but at the same time I want to keep this secret to myself.
We'll be back VERY SOON.

The best Argentinian food in Baja, we loved it so much we dined there 5 days in a row. The empanadas are so good, the choripan was delicious with homemade chimichuri and their signature homemade sausages. Their Lomito sandwich was to die for it melts in your mouth how tender the filet is. The house deserts are amazing too, bread pudding (yum!) with dulce de leche. I highly recommend checking this place out next time you are in Rosarito beach.

Actually it's easy to find this outstanding little "hole in the wall" restaurant with authentic homemade recipes from Argentina. Their own special recipe for homemade Argentina potato salad is famous with the jet set in Rosarito. They make it on demand and cater it to private parties during the week, but they also make it every Friday with hopes that they've made enough to last for their great outdoor barbecue on Saturdays. You can't go wrong on Friday or Saturday with their homemade sausage torta, fantastic potato salad, washed down with a Sangria soda pop.

I could write a separate favorable review for everything I've tried on their authentic Argentinian menu. Most days you'll find either Flavia or Geraldo (the owners) or both of them holding court with their friends and fans. Where is it ? El Gaucho Argentino is on a cross street one block off the main drag in Rosarito. Look for the intersection with an Oxxo Store and a Banamex Bank. They are on the left hand side as you go down the cross street toward the ocean. Enjoy, you'll be back again and again !
