Gauchos was on Calle Uruguay before this street became a popular nightspot strip. Located in a former residence in the Bella Vista style of chalet, the specialty is USDA Prime beef in Argentine cuts. The decor is simple yet elegant, in a sort of Pampas rustic, with white walls, terra cotta flooring and critter hides on the walls. Central to the operation is a full-spec Argentine grill behind glass along one wall, where white-aproned "parrilleros" grill the3 goodies. Chorizo, morcilla, bife de chorizo, entraña, and more sizzle away as large round "pan campesino", or country bread, warms along the edges. Waiters are old-fashioned, patient and helpful. The wine list is adequate, starring Argentine and Spanish wines, beef is always done spot-on, and the entire experience is just too comforting for words. Perhaps most importantly, this is a place where quality has not hiccuped once since they opened X years ago. Still the go-to steak place in Panama.

This restaurant has the very best steaks - Uruguayan style - in town. The service is little slow and parking could be an issue.

I think this is the best option for steaks in Panama City.

They have many years in the business and keep the same quality and friendly service.

Maybe the location could be improved.

Were in the mood for a good steak & judging by how busy this place is for lunch & dinner we decided to give it a try. They sell USA choice meat at prices which are close to USA prime in the USA. But the steaks were tasty (ribeye & skirt), potatoes were okay & dessert average.

Good place though & certainly busy.
