The dish you mentioned “lengua en escabeche” is as you said cow tongue, it has to be cooked more than three hours so the meat get soft, if not couldn´t be eaten because would be to hard to chew, and “escabeche” es vinager, oil,...

This is an upscale classy restaurant in the Reforma neighbourhood, north of the Centro Historical of Oaxaca, maybe a 60 peso cab ride. It's worth it if you want a steak lunch or dinner. They have about 25 cuts to choose from and it is all reportedly Argentininian beef. They have all the trimming too, like Ceasar salad, some nice... More

Oaxaca restaurants typically do not refrigerate meat, and all of the food is pretty much the same flavor with the only available options being heat with hot sauce or a salt with ground worms. Service is typically friendly, but not sophisticated. I was excited to visit Che's, with its wonderful reputation. I visited Che Groucho with a US expat chef... More

The restaurant is nice looking, got a nice table at the open terrace. The meat was very mediocre, small servings, little to no taste, and very very overpriced. Also to top it off 3% extra for paying with credit card. I'm really surprised at such a good average rating. I for one am not going back...

This is an Argentinian steakhouse outside the downtown area of Oaxaca. I believe the neighborhood is called Reforma. My husband and I spent a month in Oaxaca this past spring and were craving a good steak. We took a short taxi ride to The Che and sat in the terrace area. We aren't smokers but weren't bothered by anyone puffing.... More

Great homemade caesar salad made at the table. The steak was a little thin to be cooked correctly, but good flavor. We got the small portion. We were told this was the best steakhouse in Oaxaca. We found the service excellent, the quality of steak average. Overall good experience when you are looking for some red meat for a change.

I have dined at Che Gaucho on 2 occasions. Both were excellent experiences. Impeccable professional and friendly service with large food portions. Pricing was comparable to a steak house in the U S.

My local friends took me here and I can see why they go there so often. It is very pretty with a nice patio, the seats are super comfy, the waitstaff very professional. I had salmon with a salad and a goat cheese and spinach empanada-all were well presented and delicious. I'll for sure return on my next trip.

The food here is fabulous, the waitstaff outstanding, the ambiance wonderful. Our only complaint is that they have this stunning outdoor area BUT it is their smoking area and it the smoke just seems to sit in it so, we can not enjoy it beyond gazing at it from inside!

Thanks for writing your comments at tripadvisor. Happy that you enjoy the visit at Che Gaucho, and we are sorry that were people who smoke in the gardens but that’s the only open area we have for customers who smoke, hope next time you can have a table there without the smoke.
