I am a repeat customer. I love this restaurant. The skirt steak was delicious and so were the side dishes. Having been to a couple of restaurants on the island, in comparison, this restaurant was reasonably priced for the quality of food.

The argentine steak house is mediocre at best. The staff isn't the best and the steak is on the salty side. There are many places that too this place

Excuse me but we are not mediocre. ..we can't be and still be famous..packed every night and exist for over 40 yrs. If you don't want salt just say so but most people do want a tasty and well seasoned meal.

El Gaucho, is a typical Argentine Steakhouse, famous for serving succulent Steaks grilled the Argentinian way. The decor, ambiance and music is rustic and Argentinian in every way. Leather art on the walls, wooden pillars and barrels,cow hide decor and more. The Restaurant is divided in 7 dinning rooms, each decorated to honor a region of Argentina:Mendoza the wine region, the famous Caminito Way, the Pampas fields.The menu is extensive with many choices of beef, poultry and seafood. The sides are included in the price and so are the fresh garlic bread and the 3 home made sauces to acompany your dinner.With over 38 years, serving the best and the biggest steaks, El Gaucho is the oldest established Restaurant on the Island.
