El Gaucho – Argentinian SteakhouseAdd collection
I visited here mid-April 23 with my wife whilst on a long tour of South East Asia.
The restaurant was very busy, however we had booked in advance so we were shown immediately to our table. The Restaurant is large over 2 floors and very nicely furnished. Tables are quite close together, but not intrusively so.
The service was friendly, quick (even though busy), and attentive. We enjoyed a couple of nice cocktails, and I had a very good lobster and crab soup. My wife is a vegetarian, but there was a good selection for her to choose from, and she settled on the Spaghetti Pomodoro, which she said was lovely. I had the (13oz) Ribeye, with jacket potato, etc. I must say it was one of the nicest steaks I have had in a very long while.
Excellent evening, very enjoyable.
We were looking for a high end meal in Ho Chi Minh and it was a little late so we decided on El Gaucho. There was a bit of a wait but we got a table and were very pleased with both the food and the service. The drink .. a moscow mule; not so much and they tried 2x. After a few weeks in SE Asia I just came to the determination that mixed drinks is just not something they do well; and that s ok.
The meal here was great from the Empanada starter to the lamb chops (me) and Wagyu Rib Eye (guest) with truffle mac and cheese and sauteed mushrooms for sides. YES!
I left full and fulfilled. Sooo happy we decided to stop in and get a table.
I can tell this is a key local spot because I saw a business dinner, friends out and date night all happening on the second floor and the waiters were hustling all night.
I m not rating this as a good value only because it s a steakhouse, you are not doing a value meal it s going to be pricey, as you would expect a steakhouse to be anywhere.
Well worth a visit.
