I had lunch at Gaucho.The place is elegant with a great ambiance and all of the staff go the extra step in pleasing you.
The waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu. He presented all the different cuts they have on a wooden slate explaining the difference and characteristics of each one, was great host who ensured that we had a great evening.
Is a high quality food and the menu has a large variety..
We chose the grilled cheese appetizer, to follow a nice cut of steak served with fries and a selection of sauces. Meat was nice and tender.
You should definitely try it

Went this evening for a joint birthday/engagement celebration.

From the Hostess on the door to the Management follow-ups, everything was exemplary.

Sophia the Hostess was as professional on greeting us as she was taking the booking earlier in the week. We were served by Chloe, who was nothing less than charming, always helpful and informative.

Prawn and chorizo starters were incredible, we could have easily just eaten them twice.

Mains of a ribeye and a two-day marinaded steak were some of the finest cuts I've ever eaten.

Finally, having forewarned them of our events, they gave us a glass of champagne each and some chocolate desserts personalised for us. Whilst we hoped for a slice of chocolate cake, we couldn't have expected so much.

The finest service I've experienced in Dubai, and you'd be a fool not to go.

We went to Gaucho for a Sunday after work dinner with some friends. I had heard positive comments about this restaurant and was thrilled to try it out. And it was well worth every single Dirham! The staff was very friendly and attentive. The ambience of the restaurant is fantastic. Since we were very hungry in the beginning, we ordered ceviches to have something to nibble on while waiting for the others to arrive. The ceviches were really good and so was the bread that was served with chimichurri. I like the fact that the steaks were presented before making a decision of what to eat. They all look delicious and I really had a hard time to choose which steak to go for. I ended up choosing the sirloin steak and medium rare. The steak was cooked perfectly and all my friends were also very happy with their dishes. The pairing of red wine with the food was excellent! For dessert we chose to go for several small dishes, like a tasting menu, in order to get to taste all of their desserts.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a restaurant with good steaks and nice ambience.

You know the saying that first and last impressions are the ones that count the most?
Thankfully that is not the case with this restaurant.
We were greeted in the valet parking area by a hostess that was indifferent, annoyed and very snob. Maybe because it was Christmas Eve and she was working? Do not know the reason but it was the same surprise our friend got when he joined us a little bit later.
The place is elegant with a great ambiance and all of the staff go the extra step in pleasing you, apart from our first encounter.
Hicham was very knowledgeable about the menu. He presented all the different cuts they have on a wooden slate explaining the difference and characteristics of each one. Many thanks to Talal as well, a great host who ensured that we had a great evening.
Menu is a bit on the expensive side but it compensates with the quality of the food and the relaxed no hassle experience that you get.
The menu has a large variety but it is not tiring.
The wines are also cheaper than expected, compared to the food.
You should definitely try it.
