“The Best Steak”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Hands down the best steak in town. There is a sister restaurant in Ho Chi Minh city, same owners, same quality. Absolutely the best meal in town, great atmosphere and excellent service and attention. It is expensive in Vietnam, but you would pay twice the price in New York or Sydney for the same. Save up, eat at home for a week and then treat yourself. Many other top restaurants in Hanoi have a lot of show and not the substance. El Gaucho is world class and the real deal. Suggest you make reservations.

“Yum yum gimme some steak!”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

I'm from Texas. I know my steak. And this steak is amazing. I visited this restaurant numerous times and each time the beef was amazing. They offer both USDA and Australian. I tried the filet, carpaccio and steak tar tar. Filets were always cooked to my liking. Steak tar tar was fresh and delectable. Great selection of red wine and the vanilla vodka that Stanley personally serves is a girls best friend.

“Put down that rice roll, Prepare for Meaty deliciousness!”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

The wife and I had rice paper oozing from our ears after 7 day's in Vietnam and El Gaucho brought balance to our carnivorous Chi!. Reasonably priced house red's by glass abundant. Homemade Chorizo, and empanada's to start, magic!. ..The wife and I shared a medium rare Aussie ribeye cooked to absolute perfection. The wife likes it cooked well done so the staff prepared more charcoal so her half was cooked to her liking. Shared the BBQ Rib's which we're lump, fall off the bone, finger lickin delishioso. The side of their homemade fries were crispy and had a unique texture, great compliment to both dishes. I grew up on Morton's and Gibson's from Chicago... You know where you are, you get what you pay for, you won't be dissappointed.. excellent food, stellar service! The Manager, Stanley, informed us we were ordering too much and made great recommendations so we could sample the menu. When does that ever happen! Don't forget to finish off your meal with a shot of their caramel infused vodka. I slept that night, satisfied and happily cradling my defibrillator...... PS: baby/kid friendly.. had our 4 month old and the staff went out of their way.. absolute tops...

“Great Service and Food Awesome”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

First time visit to this Steakhouse and really nothing bad to report. Service was very good (unusual in Vietnam) Steaks were excellent, we had 3 different types of steaks and all were enjoyed immensely.
OK a bit pricey by Vietnamese standards but you would pay double in the west and not complain.
Will be back for more.
Well done to all the staff who made it a great meal and night.

“Great food and service every time”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

This is our 'local' restaurant and a favourite for an early Sunday night dinner with our 2 little boys. The staff are all very friendly, make sure the boys are served early so we all have a great night. The food is always just as we order and I have no problems with paying for great quality food when it comes with a good setting and fantastic service.
