“Good steakhouse”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

We found very good tasting steaks at this restaurant and enjoyed the fun atmosphere on a crowded night. It is casual atmosphere with the staff hurrying around to take care of everyone and they do an excellent job. The high quality steaks were done just as requested, our eggplant appetizer was great and they have an interesting list of red wines from Uruguay which complemented the meal. If you're in the mood for grilled meat this is a very good option.

“Just the steaks”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

This place is busy most evenings. It closes at 10:30 and is a local favourite. Reservations are recommended. More so because you do not want to miss the steaks. Almost the best steak i have ever had. The cooking was perfect. The meat tender. The sauce just the way it should be. The accompaniments were not that bad. I went for the pepper steak and was very very happy.

The restaurant interiors are very nice and old worldish. It also gives a distinct colonial feeling. The service while not being out of this world is not bad. It is efficient. Would certainly recommend for the steaks.

“Great steak, little else.”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We passed Gaucho's on our cab ride to the hotel, so decided to try it out. We were seated with a view of the grill master, and I liked the dark, old style interior. The house red wine was good, and hot bread came promptly. The ceviche was lousy, with rubbery, dry seafood in liquid that was way too acidic and tart. Next was the Caeser salad which was without a doubt the worst Caeser I have ever had. Lettuce was not Romaine and was wilted, had brown spots and a stale taste, and I have no idea what the dressing was, something with a strong vinegar taste. We shared our main meal (small eaters) of tenderloin filet, mashed potatoes and baked potato, and the steak truly was excellent, perfectly cooked at medium rare. Baked potato was just OK, but the mashed potatoes were very good, tasted like there may have been sour cream and some mascarpone cheese melded in. Go for the steak, forget the rest.

“If you like steakhouse beef...”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

On our Christmas trip to Panama we asked for the three best restaurants in the City. Our first reservation was made at La Posta, a place we were told was only a few blocks walk from the Marriott, on Calle Uruguay... We never found it..apparently we were close, but whoever we asked didn't know exactly where it was. Instead, we sighted Hooters and thought we'd ask for directions. The owner is American and suggested that we were a bit far away and, being a bit late, offered to walk us around the corne to Gauchos for a very good piece of meat, excellent salad, and very good value. They slipped us in on a very busy evening, had just the Malbec we wanted, proved provided excellent service, and surprised us with one of the best pepper steak we've ever eaten... Perfectly cooked, incredibly tender, all at great value. We were the only non-Spanish speakers in there and, while it wasn't one of the best meals ever, it was good enough to recommend and to go back - not something we usually find when we travel. And for those who aren't spoiled by Iiving in one of the best food towns in the US, this could be a true, local, highlight of a trip. Don't pass it up.
