Today I've been invited by business partner to Gaucho a/d Maas. Location is quite attractive. Idea for tourists: Go there from city side by water taxi. Makes the event perfect. If the weather is not so good, go there by car. Parking is expensive, but thats typical for the region.
We selected the salad caprese (tomato with mozarella) as starter, main course was 300g lomo with some french fries. No sauce. A medium-dry red wine. And a espresso as closer.
The service was perfect, not brash, just friendly and perfect English. I never had the experience of an introduction in the different types of steaks. The servant explains the sort and specialities and the best mode of preparation. We had the Lomo medium rare, which was quite perfect. Not too bloody, not too dry.
This was definetively one of the best steaks inclusive the introduction I ever had.
I can't confirm that the restaurant is noisy nor that the service is bearish.
Price wise, it seems to be expensive. I won't go there without a special reason.

Excellent steaks, only place in Rotterdam that can turn out a perfect 'black n blue' steak. Pricey, but the quality of the meat makes it all worthwhile.

Visited with friends. In summary, food nice but overpriced when considering the service and ambiance of the place. I wouldn't return based on this experience.

Restaurant about 70% full, plenty of staff but poor service overall. Relatively small and very noisy inside, and a large terrace outside. Only smokers outside this evening and we decided it was too cold to risk eating outdoors, especially if next to smokers. Really got a bad vibe from the manager (I assume he was anyway) not welcoming and seemed like a bad attitude. Service slow and basically ignored unless we called a waiter over.

Maybe it was misunderstood humour, but the waiter basically argued with one of our party over how he wanted his steak cooked - never argue with a customer! We had the king prawn, steak, chicken and all were tasty. Limited portion sizes considering the price. Mine was simply a single chicken fillet on a plate! Most main courses come with a small side salad and choice of one side dish. Bear this in mind if you are very hungry! Desserts were good and relatively better value than appetisers and mains at 8 euro.

Food very good and service also high standard. Had the fillet steak which was served just as I like it with some very tasty side dishes especially the green beans with tomatoes and garlic.

Our daughter took us, a friend and a carnivorous teenage grandson to supper here on Easter Sunday. The steaks were really excellent and so was my wife's fish dish. Service was good and the wine satisfactory. The main quibble was the noise level in a full restaurant, much better to go when the terrace on the quai is open. Not a cheap meal, but with two people ordering 400gramme fillet steaks, what do you expect!
