Expensive but good for the overall experience- the food, the ambiance like a typical steakhouse. Didnt understand what the Argentinian part was though. If you are into steaks then good to try Jacksons as well

The meal and service were so good we went back the next night and I had exactly the same! Superb food and service. I started with the lobster and crab bisque, which was a great portion and had a brilliant depth of flavour. Truly one of the best I have had. Prior to this some bread was bright to the table with a whole roasted bulb of garlic which was still warm and had a lovely mellow flavour. Of the three choices of fillet I chose the Black Angus 250gr cooked rare. This ranks as one of the best steaks I have ever had for tenderness and flavour. I cannot say more, it truly melted. My husband had the strip loin the first night then had the rib eye the next. They were both fantastic, but not quite char grilled enough on the outside for him, but apart from that they were cooked perfectly to medium rare. We had the potato gratin, garlic mash and mushrooms for sides, all of which were cooked and tasted superb. All in all a superb meal and will return when next in Hanoi.

We went to El Gaucho ! The food was incredibly good and the service as well.

We also had some of their very own caramel vodka shots which were very enjoyable as well !

We will definately give this place the highest recommendations to the one who are looking for a great meal to a reasonable price - considered the high standard of the food !

best regards THE Danish lot.

skål !

We love the El Gaucho chain of restaurants and seek them out in each city we visit. So, we were very excited to find one located in Hanoi while we were visiting the city. Unfortunately, our dining experience was not very good (it bordered on being miserable). For starters, they made an error in our main course order which caused some members of our party to eat their meals at different times. To make matters worse, when the corrected meals finally arrived it was terribly undercooked (pork that was nearly raw). As I mentioned, we highly recommend El Gaucho restaurants but this one did not live up to the standards of the others.

located just oposite of opera, this is the best place for steak in the city, have been at the 2nd same name restaurant too, but like that much more. actuallly temperature is best for outdoor sitting, so we could find a table on the balcony/terrace upstairs, which is called smoking area.
have been for bussiness dinner, maybe staff has to get some more experiance as they meesed up with ordering beer and red wine and water at same time. but finally we managed. service is well trained and professional.
and steak just perfect.
perfect for bussiness
