Located in an attractive underground space (dark wood paneling, generous use of black and white cow hides and bright strategically placed lighting all creating a nice effect) in the heart of the financial district. The menu leans strongly to South American influenced offerings - I started with two excellent beef empanadas - and 100% Argentinian beef. Your server makes a... More

We enjoyed a first class steak meal at this branch of this upmarket steak chain. The service was helpful, if a little choreographed. The rump steak was excellent and fat chips too. Enjoyable but not a cheap option.

My husband and I were staying at the hotel and decided to eat here for dinner on the Saturday night. We'd hoped our baby would sleep in her pushchair but it was all too exciting and she sat (quietly) and watched the entire meal (and may have nibbled on some of the food!) The waiting staff were all so sweet... More

Service was exceptional, however it was a bit pricey. I had a vegetarian ravioli which was delicious and it was a nice touch to serve bread and butter while waiting for the main meal. I would have nice to see a few more vegetarian options on the menu and it would have been nice if the restaurant was kept open... More

Chose Gaucho - City because of its reputation and location for our business evening with potential customers. Now, if I was reviewing a good pub restaurant then these comments would not be so valid. But the Gaucho is not a pub restaurant, it's a premium specialist steak establishment and it's priced accordingly. The majority of our meals were pretty good... More

Came here to host a client and the steaks were excellent. The service and waiting times were not.... we were a bit annoyed. They are terribly understaffed.. Though I really enjoyed the steak, was top notch.

The Gaucho Grill, 1 Bell Inn Yard A bit difficult to locate but worthwhile, we entered without a reservation. I was dead busy and crowded, a very good sign. Got a table like that, and very attentive host and manager followed us throughout the meal. True attention to details. Their selection of meat and dishes are all in the best... More

I had a bad experience (a one-off out of many good experiences) several months ago, and the manager contacted me and offered to make it right. Well, there was a new manager, who was gracious enough to still honor the promise made by his predecessor (50 credit!). They went out of their way to offer good service, and the food... More

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
