“Good food and service. Rat ran across my foot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

Very good food and service. Probably best red wine selection in Ho Chi Minh. Caution the mushroom sauce on the chicken breast is extremely rich and therefore very filling.

Had a rat climb over my foot which was a little alarming but this trip I have never seen as many rats in the city. I have seen them in the markets and other bars and restaurants so I assume it is a city wide problem.

“always good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Whenever I go to ElGaucho the food, the drinks, the service, the atmosphere, location is really really good.

Just a tiny con: You can't go there in a sleeveless dress/shirt - the aircon is always too cold.

“Friendly and casual steak restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went there last Friday night. Unfortunately, we didn't make a reservation, so that we couldn't get the seat at upstairs. We had small table for two at first floor. Staff was funny and very caring person, so we really enjoyed the time at there. Drink and food was fine;)
We will make a reservation for next time for sure!

“Best ragout ever!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

The chorizo are not truly authentic (although still tasty) but the ragout is incredible!!
When offered the caramel vodka at the end of your meal, do yourself a favour and accept as it is delicious!!

“The best food & service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

This place is amazing! The steaks are to die for & the other food choices are just as good. This restaurant is one of our favs....we have lived here since Xmas & visit this restaurant at least once a month. The staff are fabulous too. If you are hanging for a steak....eat at this beautiful place!
