“The Grand finale on the way back home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

We stopped by this fabulous restaurant on our way back home from our vacation in Eilat.
El Gaucho is a safe bet. If you love and enjoy meat, you will probably find the best Entrecote there. Prior to the main dish, you order an Empanada (Mushrooms) and I rest my case. Great, great, great!

“A Nice Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

I was brought here for lunch by a co-worker. Very good overall. The soup was excellent. The steak was very good - not the best, but close. Well worth the time.

“Nice place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

El Gaucho is nice, the service was good, and the food is fine too, not the best steaks, but reasonable. I would not recommend the Asado, they do it on the spot (this is what the waitress told me), which is impossible, if you want a real Asado, takes hours…it is a good alternative for Eilat, where good places to eat out are rare.

“Again a good stake place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

The service in El Gaucho was the best we had anywhere in Eilat. The food was also very good - solid quality of beef fillet. Side orders were relatively cheap and we tasted the best-ever green beans with garlic - don't miss that if you go there!

“It used to be much better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

My wife got calf ASADO - most of it was fat and bones , meat could be found with a microscope.
I got a grilled fish looking nice but in taste it left bitterness in my
mouth for a long time after the meal. Pity
