I highly recommend El Gaucho if you want a delicious, authentic Argentine meal, gorgeous view, relaxed atmosphere and good quality, non-pushy service. I have lived in Argentina and I can honestly say this meal was deliciously authentic.

I had the petit filet and my husband had the Argentinian ribeye and both were some of the best steaks we’ve ever had. The seasoning was perfection.
