My partner and I came here for dinner one evening, chose to sit upstairs and had a lovely relaxing meal overlooking the beachfront. Food was beautiful, we had the mixed grill which was for 2, it was peaceful and was a nice relaxing escape from the partying and mad nightlife! Staff were very pleasant and was very reasonably priced.

This place is perfect if you want to take a little break from Thai food. The steaks and other meats were perfectly cooked, the sauces actually tasted like South American salsas and the staff was efficient and friendly.

El Gaucho was a pleasant find, streak and other meats were cooked very well and could not find fault with anything. Sides were very good also. A reasonable selection of wine for a restaurant in Karon Beach. Service and staff were very good. Food is priced at the higher end but worth a try.

fodder was very good both had surf and turf good but too oily. Service was very good but the ouside eating area lighting (blue lights)was terrible cannot read the menus and can not see your food. Lighting definitely needs changing as it makes your eyes hurt after awhile.think it is very over priced for what it is.
